Re[2]: Empire of Chivalry & Steel - some observations

Poster: "David H Ritterskamp" <dhritter@dpcmail.dukepower.com>

     Lady Lawles [Emma] has (in her SUB-tul and gracious way) pointed out 
     that perhaps there are some people out there who have no idea what the 
     heck I was talking about.
     In addition to the Merry Rose, I keep tabs on Trimaris' mailing list, 
     and this came up. Genius that I am, I didn't pay attn. to which list 
     it came from. 
     Now that I think about it, I'm not even sure it came from there.  
     ANYWAY, I got ahold of some blurb on the Empire of Chivalry & Steel 
     and thought that it might hold some interest/amusement/whatever.
     The web page, in case anyone's interested, is
