I *think* the original design was to allow those shires and cantons in
the grey areas to choose which way to go based on their needs and

The majority of the population centers are in the Baronies and they are
the ones who will make or break the Principality issue in the beginning.

We still want you! Without the smaller groups, there wouldn't be any new
baronies. Without smaller groups, there wouldn't be as many new people.

anyone to pick on. (Okay, maybe we would, but it wouldn't be as fun. *wink*)
