- Jan 30, 2007Gee whiz even I'm here, though I will have to fight the urge to lurk.
I'm Ldy.Viviana Fiorentina from the shire of Flint Marsh, but most
people in the SCA know me only as Moltan's wife. I'm a lurker by
nature, even in the flesh. Are we having fun yet?

some in our Kingdom as being sepratists. This has caused much hard
feelings over the years and has in my opinion held back some very
fine folks. If these folks look down on us now, they must be
prepared to have their own Houses examined in the same way or at
least be prepared to be held accountable if by no one else, Me.

Seneschal on the Witan Council would speak to Ld Andrew when he was
Warden. Maegwynn faced similar struggles. I think it took what 3
months of her calling various Shire Seneschals to get the last big
consensus. This way, we can appoint an Elder from a Geographical
region of the Consortium. This person would of course would be
enthusiastic about the Consortium. That in itself will do much to
alleviate Apathy. I've surveyed three surrounding Consortium Shires
recently. Each has new people. Most of the new folks don't even have
a clue as to what the Consortium is. I personally blame this on the
folks in their groups who should be showing the way. To get an honest
totally fair oppinion, James would have to speak to each and every
individual in the Consortium. Seeing as how many people on our old
list are not even Consortium Members and so few people attend Chalice
Challenge, I don't see how this would be feasible.
