I tend to agree with both Earl Dafydd and Baron Corun, mostly because I 
have seen theme events repeated time after time, numbered II, III, IV, 
etc., and getting less interesting each rendition.  From comments I've 
heard in the Merry Rose, it would seem inter-baronial wars have been 
discouraged in Atlantia primarily because of this effect, along with the 
fact that as they become less interesting they become more intensely 
unsportmanslike (damn, I need a thersarus).

I really think people need to create events based on new ideas, and new 
themes.  Let successful events rest a few years.  It won't hurt.
