Well, that depends on your definition of "large." We've got about 50-60
active members of the group, mostly based around Blacksburg (proudful side
note: of the thirty new members we gained in the last six months we have
kept 20 as active members). As for travel patterns in and out of the barony,
our people go most often to Black Mountain (East),Caer Mear, Sacred Stone,
Windmasters Hill, Isenfir, and Ponte Alto. Our greatest number of visitors
actually comes from the north and east: Isenfir, the "palmprint" area (nee'
Old Storvik), and Caer Mear.

My impression (and solely mine) is that we don't see much royalty out here
too often now, and aren't likely to regardless of what principality we'd be
part of.
