Because you don't have access to previous issues, let me state again
what I said a couple of Digests ago:

Given our experience, I agree with Curtis that cancelling BC for want of 16
players seems to be a rather small number. However, at RQ Con Down Under we
our LARP set to go on the day. If Broken Council ain't ready, there's
obviously no point continuing down this road...



>From the Notes From Nochet files:
Loess is the fine yellowish-brown soil of Matkondu, the northern lands
of Teshnos in the far east. Loess is blown by the winds of the Genert
desert and deposited in layers often tens or hundreds of feet deep on top
of the original terrain. It is exceptionally fine and easily eroded by
wind and water, leaving the vertical earth cliffs and precipitous ravines
and gullies so typical of the region's landscape. Kota the Traveller.
