As I would hope, it becomes a Kingdom with a lot of Princes running 
around, nothing else.

Well, at least you have joined the debate.

Hmm!  Does this mean that you feel that the south, as constructed in my 
proposal, does not have the strength of peerages to support itself as a 
pincipality.  The only requirement I am aware of, is 100 members and 
enough Fighters to support a decent Coronet list.  Considering that the 
Guardians of Sacred Stone put, what 5, contestants in the last Crown, 
that wouldn't seem to be a problem.  Sorry you lost Kane, but as for 
Alfred, your lose is our gain (actually, Ponte Alto's, but I get to fight 
him sometimes ;-)).

Which means we are all Yankees to the folks in Border Vale Keep.

Just use your e-mailer to reply to me, rather then to atlantia-l, cause 
I'll be in the header.
