Re: [Ayreton] Re: Questions about baronies
- I guess I prefer the voluntary thing. That way, if
people don't want to play they don't have to.
I say we strengthen the voluntary aspect for another
few years THEN figure out if we play well enough
together to do this baronial stuff. People keep
saying how well we worked together for Carnival. I
only worked the Ravenslake half of the event - and
most of that was behind the scenes - so I don't know
what the other groups did. Other than that, the
coronation a few years ago, every one pitched in and
it went well. But those are only TWO EVENTS. That
doesn't mean we all play well together. It means we
did twice in ... four or five years.
Again, I want to see us work together for a few more
events before we all agree what a great a wondrous
thing this is going to be. If we can handle another
three or four events, then yeah. I would agree. I just
haven't seen ENOUGH evidence that we work together to
warrant moving it to another level.

that gives answers, not web links.
Note! The following is MY OPINION ONLY, and is, in fact, only a suggestion.
I respectfully request that persons who hold a title (like, say, "Regional Seneschal"...I'll use that example because I hold that office) refrain from using it for purposes of this discussion.
That is to say, I might post that The Regional Seneschal says...this or that...or The Regional Seneschal thinks...this or that. In my experience, such comments might lead folks to believe that an Official Declaration or Official Comment was being made.
You will note that unless I am speaking as the Regional Seneschal, I speak as Alexander, some guy from Ravenslake. In that way, Alexander can make his opinions known, and the Regional Seneschal's opinion on the matter (whatever it may be) is not mixed in. Sometimes I speak as the Regional Seneschal, and have been invited to some group meetings in that role. Normally, I kick in my two cents with everyone else.
I hope that others who hold offices, unless they are specifically speaking as the officeholder, will make any advice, comments, suggestions, etc. as themselves, not from their office.
Once again, this is Just My Opinion and suggestion.
Is mise le meas,
Alexander de Seton,
some guy from Ravenslake
