First... none of these actions mean that these lands are no longer part of
Ansteorra, period, end of sentence.
Mechanically, the zip codes are still in Ansteorra. The zip codes will
either be directly associated with a new local group or they will be "free
range" crown lands.
Emotionally... one should play where one wants. My zip code today is in
the Canton of Glaslyn, albeit on the very southernmost edge. But I've
always played more specifically in the Barony of Steppes proper, and yet,
I'm an officer in the Canton of Lindenwood. Me? I play in Ansteorra.
These local groups are convenient administrative bodies, but it's the PEOPLE
who engender loyalty and love. No change in group heraldry administrivia
can change that.
There have been many instances of a person moving from one group into the
zipcodes of another group, but continuing to play and associate themselves
with their old group, travelling back to see them constantly, and so on.
It's all good. Nobody is trying to force anyone to hang out with someone
they don't want to hang out with.
