I have a long memory, for those interested in of context for the current difficulties I suggest the following reading on the |Public BB.
6186, 6191, 6317, 6338, 6339, 6347, 6351
I also suggest Parrian's and Mercinaens read their city BB's from around 32 Avalon years ago (Feb 95).
I will leave you to draw your own conculsions but I think the picture is clear.
One thing is a wierd co-incidence Female Parrian Barons seem to have a liking for taking over villages - perhaps they wish to \"mother\" the villagers.
