I agree. Being a relatively shy person in new situations to begin with,
re-entering the chivalric world after an absence is difficult. You think you
remember all the rules, and then you see all these new people who are acting
contrary to your memory - It drives me nuts. And then, in recent years
trying to re-enter the Dream, I have found much less courtesy that I
remembered in my newbie days.

Admittedly, I began in a different area - Let's just say I remember Eldern
Hills BEFORE they became a barony - but shouldn't courtesy be Kingdom, if
not Dream wide?
