Let each man pile his dead as suits him. I find myself siding with Galen
on this one. I grew up in Namron with the Medieval Fair in my backyard
and enjoyed it. I was unable to join, at first because of my youth and
later due to work scheduling but in my own time I came. For those who
love the pageantry I say go to fairs, speak to mundanes, enjoy.
I'm a stick jock. I detest listening to every Joe Blow who wanders up
and begins to spout he's done this or he had that. Those who are truly
interested and asking questions are a joy, but as a mundane educator I
get tired of putting on a public face all week and then more at a fair.
I want to swing a stick and enjoy the company of my friends.
Those who are truly interested will find us....these are the people I
want to meet.
Yours in service to Ansteorra always,
Lord Mykaru Kurodachi
