After all, prudent persons do not ride to feast in the belly of a dragon.

We still use autocrat for the event person, but usually use head cook. And gate is usually just referred to as "constab." It helps that we have a small, fluid population that includes lots of newcomers, so children and vehicles was easy. Dragons are only those very noisy things that fly in the sky and make outdoor court hard to hear occasionally. But we do stubbornly hang onto eric, although it is explained as part of Society's history. We are in the West, after all . . .
