[Bonwicke] Gothic Money

I tend to agree Bjorn, I don't see much hope for the principality idea here
at this time. We are just to spread out, and I don't see enough active
people. I know good luck to who ever is going to be taking up this cause,
if anyone, but I personally think that we are 2 to 5 years at away from this
being a serious bid for the big 'P'.
May we meet on the field as friends,
Marquet de la Hyet
