It's our fault.  I had received the email as an officer and responded to the
officers... Ian read the email...thought it was a NK list discussion...and
replied there instead of to officers... he's sorry.  :) so am I. :)

In service,
Kelandra and Ian

> We have done this on various occasions on and off throughout the

> and monies collected will be used for the Baronial toy fund.  As the
> Officers are still hashing out how much an offense will cost, the Tax will
> not become official until Populace Meeting at the end of the
> month of October.
> We were asked to consider reimplementing the tax as over the months, the
