As do I, Your Excellency, but the quote above is somewhat out of context given your reply.  I advocate a system of regulations that allow anything, and encourage relationships which allow us to work in harmony and in support of our neighbors.

I would never encourage that Elfsea and Steppes actually hold events on the same weekend, but I do not feel that the Kingdom should stop such a thing.  I used our Baronies merely as an example of two very close, very large groups.  I would no sooner suggest Elfsea and Steppes do so than I would suggest Stargate and Loch Sollier should do so, but let that power rest with the group.
