     One point:
     Has anybody tried to figure out what would be ideal travel time to an 
     event, and then thought about making all the kingdoms that size??
     That might make for smaller, but more personalized kingdoms.  
     Personally, I know very few northerners, and I'm sure they're just as 
     aware of me.  Mightn't each side be happier with its own thing?  
     Just as the mistake was made with whichever kingdom was out west and 
     split lengthwise, instead of across the middle (thus having two TALL 
     kingdoms with 14 hours travel time end to end instead of cutting them 
     in half horizontally, thus cutting travel time in half) it would be 
     possible to separate Atlantia (or any other kingdom, for that matter) 
     in such a way as to minimize the geographical problems.  I would guess 
     that the split would be between Richmond and Raleigh, and between 
     Black Diamond and points north.  Geographically speaking, that 
     probably works best.  
     Of course, why use geographical breakdowns when we can squabble over 
     it forever?
     Personally, if I had realized that Pointless War was going to be held 
     at a site that was 10+ hours away, I doubt I'd have gone.
     Just a thought-
