I am very excited to have a reason to post here beyond liking to hear myself talk.

EDIT: Is there a resource where I might be able to look up the relevant lore? I'm nor sure what a Vistani is, for example, and while context clues have proved helpful to me, I'd love to look into what the geopolitical, technological, and ethnic spectrum of this world looks like. Thaaaaanks :)

The world "vampire" has come up for the first time, and trust me it will not be the last. But what exactly *do* you know about vampires?  For most of you, the answer is: not much.  If you stopped a random passerby on the street and asked them to tell you what they know about vampires, you've pretty much got it.

What you know:
--vampires are undead beings.  They suck human blood as sustenance.
--garlic, scattering rice on your doorstep, and holy symbols are tried and true protection.
--vampires can only be truly killed by staking them through the heart, cutting off the head, stuffing the mouth with garlic, and then burning everything.

Are vampires such a problem (or widely believed to exist) that garlic is a rare and expensive commodity?

Conversely, is so much garlic produced that it is plentiful and cheap?

After doing some research* (skimming the Wikipedia article on Romanian cuisine), it would seem that garlic is fairly widely used in regional cooking, often in the form of delicious garlicky pork sausages.  As such, let us assume that it is neither rare nor precious.

It's also (legitimately) used in poultices on wounds to reduce the likelihood of infection.
