So, about the different ‘uniforms…’ both are actually based upon descriptions of the attire worn by the agrarian benandanti in Carlo Ginzburg’s “The Night Battles.” As I’m sure you’ve figured out, the Hounds of God wear the black and gold, while the Agrarian Benandanti wear red and white. Fun little tidbit there.
Also, in case you missed me flailing earlier, I did well at Marcon. Took home Best in Show among other awards. It was a good time, and life is most excellent.
