- After several discussions on a message board, I came up with this modest proposal. I'd like for you guys to take a look. Please feel free to pass this along anywhere you think it may help.This consists of the best ideas I could come up with after talking with many people. I figured you all here would be interested to see it.In Service,Tiarna Bran mac Scandlan

I'm considering doing this because my laurel is a German who was shipped to
England at a young age in an agreement for his apprenticeship to a jeweler

be cool if I surprised them by doing a persona shift to their island for an
outfit or two. *grin*
