  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,
  HE Chiang
  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
a.k.a. "Spearweasel"
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."
