Re: Create Your Own Society Discussion Thread

Broader story: Right, so let's start with Nolair. I've been reasonably open in offering a solution that gives space for everyone to be involved, rather than just one society, in the process offering a fair amount of forward-looking stuff that allows people to interact, work towards things, take up e...

Re: Create Your Own Society

Well there we go then. Either we respect each others' boundaries, roll back somewhat, or it kind of all gets destructive. I've been asking you to leave me some peace in which to write; up to you which path we take.

(And if any taste is offered, the Harro Clothbolt death goes up).

Minor correction to the map; Altua is in mountains near, and accessible from, Nolair. Say, on the west side of mountains to the east of Nolair. Otherwise, it makes little sense as a meeting point; the Graces would have been asking the Disgraced to travel across the mountains and separate themselves ...

For my part, @Echo244, I have no problem with you defining what's going on with the rebels in Nolair.
