New Spartan Group / Command Update
- PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL DIRECTLY - ACCEPT THE INVITE AND USE firstname.lastname@example.org
OK, I think that the Googlegroup has failed because of an additional
login/register step that was required. I have gone ahead and created
(re-created, if you will) a email@example.com group.
Thanks to everyone who did join up - and sorry that we have to go
through it all again.
Everyone on this email should receive an invite today. I do not have
email for Wulfgrim or Nikoale. The following Spartans who have fought
with us in the last year or so have been included, unless I forgot
anyone (I probably did). This is primarily a "Logistics group" to
discuss Practice and Event schedules. Creation of this group will
allow Evyandr to let the westernspartans.com board slip quietly into
This is also my FINAL official act as Commander of the Spartans. For
reasons you all probably know, I am stepping down as commander for
2009. It was a great experience and I look forward to leading the
finest war unit in the Kingdom (if not the world) at some future
date. Currently my odds of making Estrella are no better than about 1
in 10, but I know you will all succeed with or without me.
In a classic "smokey back room" maneuver, Prince Roric will be
"Acting" Commander until we actually manage to have our yearly
meeting, and unless there is further debate will run the Spartans for
2009. A good use of this list would be get that meeting scheduled!
The banner, spartan Xiphos (charter weapon), and "corinthinan door
chime" have all been handed over to Thorgrim.
A couple of you asked me about the War Unit Charter at 12th Night -
for reasons we can discuss at the meeting this did not happen at 12th
Night (nor did any other unit renew it's charter, I don't think).
Regardless of our obligations to the Crown of the West, we have
obligations to each other, and I think we should have some sort
internal charter or equivalent... but that's really for the meeting.
The following folks were emailed with (in my mind) current email
addresses. Some of you I have multiple addresses, so please register
with the "best" email address. Everyone please review this list for
active members and forward their names and addresses to me.
I have also invited "Backslidden Comrades" Vytas, Aelric, Loki,
Tighernan, Merovick, Thorin and Titus (who were not on this raw email
Currently, there is no plan to extend this group to "friends, lovers,
cooks, and campmates of Sparta" - just fighters, but we could discuss
that at the meeting as well.
