I wonder if I only perceive a regional occurrence.  I rarely am able to
travel much further than Sacred Stone and Hidden Mountain  with
occasional forays to Windmaster's Hill.  When I speak of Courts,
I refer to both Baronial and Royal Courts.  Royal Courts are usually
well attended by people at the event.  I have been to a couple of
Royal Courts that appeared to be lightly attended.  Baronial Courts
get skipped out on by more people--usually by those not of that barony.
