I'm not permitted to fight in Atlantia because I don't tithe to
California.  I no longer render unto the Board because A) they passed a
pay-to-fight rule a few years ago (which caused me to stop sending them
money) and B) they haven't gotten their act cleaned up from two years ago
(though I cheered when they recended that ill-considered rule refered to
in A).

I don't know why Atlantia has a pay-to-fight rule; it pre-dates my
arrival in the area.  I might ask the Crown to change the rule, but I'm
not going to start a crusade to get it changed (that's not polite.)
But, one of the things I miss is fighting in a shield wall in a war,
which I've always thought fun since my first time doing so back at the
Old Atenveldt reunion in '16 or '17.

But, rest assured, the Crown is unlikely to miss one more fat, old
