Then I have been in Mundania since "WAY before Stew." Imagine my
culture shock upon returning only a couple of months ago.
Who ARE all these people? (The armies fielded at the Pointless War
were bigger than those at Pennsic VI.) I recognized only four people
out of close to 200 at the University of Atlantia - Leighare, Ysabeau,
Gyrth, and Melisande.
When I left, Atlantia was poised to become a Kingdom; the Baka-Lingian
Mafia had infiltrated everywhere; I knew every Eastern fighter (and
most Atlantean ones) by name, weapons preference, and school or style
of fighting; the East didn't go much further north than the southern
end of New Hampshire; Pennsics numbered less than 2000 inhabitants;
this whole D.C. area was "Storvik"; William de Montgilt was the only
one fighting in a carapace; Badouin was wildly proud of himself for
just having learned how to "bug the heck out of the enemy"; Richard
was FINALLY blocking Gyrth's leg blows; and Strykar had a lovely head
of black curls.
Since I haven't experienced the intervening 12 or so years, I feel
like a walking time capsule. 12th night in 1982 was only an event or
two ago for me.
Anyone willing to help a bewildered and Ancient Countess by supplying
a high-points-only whirlwind tour of history?
