Sigh. At this stage I might consider calling for interested people to form a Sessiwn to figure out what the makeup of the Kemrese parliament might be. I will wait until Dan gets back before calling it. That will give me time to finish off what I'm currently doing.

I'm too sedentary to handle them! :) - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus Jesus Christ is raging, raging in the streets.
