I don't think that's it. The groups that have moved from one administrative region to another have done so more because of philosophical reasons -- i.e., they identify, look towards, play more with the new region than with the old one. After Round Table, with Raven's Fort moving to Coastal, the count stands thus: North 10; Central 8; South 7; Coastal 10.

"the north" -- I'm so truly tired of that as our identifier. It's based on the administrative region name. Which is plain, dull, and boring while being only slightly descriptive in that, yes, the region is north of all the other regions. As someone mentioned, there is a kingdom much further north with "north" as part of their name. Why get confused with them? And I agree with Countess Kat that it would be nice to have a name that didn't include non-english standard letters, I'm willing to consider almost anything -- as long as it doesn't start with an "A"!
