Gentle patrons of the Merry Rose at Cheapside, let me remind you that we
are not the Royal Curia of Atlantia, nor even a representative proportion
of the populace of the Kingdom. I have brought this issue before you to
solicite your comments and advice, weight your opinions, deal with such
problems as you expound, and thereby create a viable proposal for
creating principalities in Atlantia which will serve the purposes I think
they should. Alexii's not wanting a principality is more then
outweighted by the many people I have spoken to who do wish to create a
northern principality. I give his position the merit it deserves, as I
do Baron Achbar's (it was a private post), Jarl Galmr's, and Gregory of
Isenfir's. Still many others, it seems, want to see this discussion
I am not inclined to change the pattern of this discussion (sorry Tadhg
etal) nor am I ready to conduct a straw polling (one must be ware of the
strawman people, after all ;-)).
I hope, over this weekend, that individuals from the proposed southern
and middle principalities will take the time to consider this idea
particularly, and speak to the suggestion. Making a positive comment
will not mean that you are forever forced to be in favor of the
principality idea. (making a negative comment doesn't mean you're damned
to be ever against principalities, either).
Next week, probably Tuesday, I will sum up what I have seen so far, and
begin the discussion on the need for principalities, as I originally
In service and begging your patience in this and all things
