I think that an issue--or even a series of issues--on
fealty would be really cool.

You could have one issue on summaries of periods texts
that talked about the issue of loyalty and fealty.

You could then have an issue with different articles
written by local folks (our B&B, our local knight(s),
our local Don(s) (I think there's still one of each
who we call local (or who would call themselves
local), but its been a while since I played up there
so . . ), our local squires and cadets and centurions,
and then we could have an issue with articles written
by other/outside peeps--other B&Bs, earls, dukes, etc.

That would be cool.
