My Dear Kamaitaichi,
When you speak so nicely of the manners of the Great Lords of the realm, it
makes me think that you have never met HE Gavin. Now here is man much like
those evil ones of the past, of which you also spoke. He would put many of
the ones from the past to shame.
I merely built a small fence along the southern border of my humble
Barony, he sends his minions to not only tear it down, but also burned the
domicile of a good friend, killed all the local donkeys (for some strange
reason known only to himself) and continues to foment dissent in the area.
All in all not a reputable fellow.
I would invite you and all who would help put down this menace to come to
Gothic Wars this Labor Day weekend, to be known hence forth as Gothic
Weekend. Come out and get as much fighting as you can possibly stand or
handle. To almost quote Sir Corwin, it is as much fun as you can have
wearing too much stuff.
Your humble servant,
Baron of Bonwicke
The good Baron not that evil Gavin

Dearest Noble Lords and Ladies of Ansteorra,
Historically speaking, mundane nobles were often a rapacious, greedy,
bloody-minded, petty lot. They squabbled over land, titles, power, wealth,
personal slights, sport, what have you. In my limited time in our society, I
have observed that the various Great Lords of the realm all possess
frightfully good manners, and are loathe to raise even the lightest of harsh
words against one another. They uniformly covet nothing more than a good
name, and the respect of their peers. This makes it possible to travel
throughout Ansteorra in safety, true. Sewing Discord in the Name of
Peace and Brotherhood,
Kamaitachi no Kansuke
Barony of Bryn Gwlad
If you were a poor Indian with no weapons, and a bunch of conquistadors came
up to you and asked where the gold was, I don't think it would be a good
idea to say, "I swallowed it. So sue me."
