An interesting scenario, if true--and disturbing. I would be interested in 
knowing if the 4th item (i.e., keeping our own waiver files) is true--and how 
much more work it would entail for the current KMOL.

Aside from that, I enthusiastically support REVOKING pay-to-fight in Atlantia. 
Quite frankly, it makes martial training of a new recruit illegal. No 
membership, no training. I support His Highness' call to maintain your 
membership--this supports the whole organization. However, the law itself makes 
training untenable--especially, in college environs.

I am personally tired of training someone as a "member"--wink, wink, nudge, 
nudge, say no more. This is certainly the place to "return to the old ways".

Please, Your Majesty and Your Highness. Reconsider. Unbind your marshalls'
