      Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

      Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for the month of November
      detailing the new files in the Florilegium this month.

      This message should be going to all kingdom mailing lists. If you are
      on another list, so you have seen this, but you don't see it on your
      kingdom list, please let me know so I can work on finding and fixing
      any problems.

      I also create a version of this article each month for websites,
      which includes links for each file. If you run a website and would
      like to be added to my monthly list to get a copy of the web version
      of this article, please contact me.

      If you have written an article that you, or your friends, think would
      be a good addition to the Florilegium, please send a copy to me. The
      author keeps the copyright to any material I use and its a good way
      to help out others all around the Known World. If you have an idea
      for an article you would like to see, please email me with the
      suggestion and I will add it to my "Article Ideas list" which
      hopefully will get added to the site soon.

      A Blending of the Past and Present

      Over the past sixteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been
      collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail
      lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make
      this information available to others, I have placed this information
      in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

      The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

      I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an
      article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send
      it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for
      more details.

      I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping
      me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,
      editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more

      For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in
      another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of
      the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the
      overhead costs of keeping the site running.

      THLord Stefan li Rous Ansteorra stefan at florilegium.org
