As for what you wrote on the subject.

Well, you're jumping the gun a little, but I would like to say that I
don't think principalities are or should be a solution to political and
functional problems in Atlantia. I think that they simply would be fun
(remember FUN guys ;-)) and that they would give more people an
opportunity to serve and enjoy the SCA, Kingdom, and their groups.

Actually, I think to divide North Carolina through a north/south axis,
putting each barony into a different principality.

filled, but it is always there.

I'm not sure, as I have been advised by more experienced people then
