I wish everyone in this most civilized of communities (by which I mean Emperor vs. Elector) the best for the coming year. Most especially our congenial host, Bluebear Jeff.
For myself, I have little new to report regarding the Principality of Estria. A period of illness through December allowed me to make some incremeental progress, and also to catch up on my reading. Now I find myself pondering ways to insinuate the Barbary Corsairs a little more fully into the Estrian world, if only on the periphery.
In other, unrelated news, I have started another blog entitled "Pagálnikèlikh Gàqadóshumashumámrakoi: The Discernment of the Dual Dais" (catchy name, no?) in order to explore some themes that have always interested me in the late Prof. M.A.R. Barker's world of Tékumel. Some of you may be familiar with Tékumel, it is another form of old-school gaming I suppose.
Not that I am specifically interested in gaming Tékumel any more. Not as such. But I do love the world Prof. Barker created, and I love reading and writing about it now and then. If any of you are interested, you can find my blog (and links to others) here: http://dualdais.blogspot.ca/
And events will continue to unfold in the Principality of Estria.
