I'm afraid that driving those distances from Bryn Gwlad continues to  
be a problem for my lady and I, not even considering the increasing  
cost of fuel.

I've yet to see any real explanation of what the recent Crown actions  
were based on and how the problems with the Western Region might  
differ from other groups in locations of low population density in  
other kingdoms, such as Artemisia or Oretha. I'm assuming this has to  
do with populous or officer numbers. I've often advised folks  
thinking of starting a small group to consider a household, despite  
their tendency to breed bad politics, instead of an official group  
with a required slate of officers. Playing musical chairs among the  
officers every time officer terms are up can lead to burnout.

Anyway, here are some files in the Florilegium which might be of use  
to folks wishing to rebuild? the region.
