    This line of thought must be STOPPED now, this second.  Brain explained it in terms of contestant via contestant. He also explained the law that WE play by.  
      You took this to a level that is just not true. That is the way "gossip" gets started.  For you to imply that this decision to step down was not honorable was a mistake on your part. The fact is, that Duke Patrick Michel and Duchess Julia, I'm sure, gave this decision, much thought and They knew this would be hard for all of Us to accept and understand. And I have never...in all the time I have been playing ... known of Duke Patrick Michel acting in anyway but "Honorable" in this game we all play. For you to even hint at that, is wrong on your part 
       Bordermarch is working very hard to make this transition as smooth and easy as possible for everyone. This is especially hard on Sir Simonn and Mistress Tessa who have been close personal friends with both of them. However, in true Bordermarch and Ansteorra fashion , Crown Tounament will be done with Honor above anything else. I invite you to come and see. Maybe then you will find the true Honor that is at the heart of this dream we have.
   I did not mean to chastise you on the list ....but ...you put it across the list.

So, how is this different from a Duke entering Crown list and then 
deliberately withdrawing after defeating an individual or individuals 
they didn't like or didn't think should be King? For that matter, I 
guess any one can do that, but for Dukes this is okay, while for 
others it is supposed to be a dishonor.
