Of course, you're right. Why didnt it occur to me ?!? Murrion Redbeard the
Fiscalist... I like it ! Wish I had thought of it.

Yep, sorry. ("Off-topicry is always an option." "There is always another

Aw, come on Nick, wasn't the following splendidly OT (on-topic) ?!?

"A well-regulated fyrd being necessary for the security of a free tribe, the
right of the Heortlings to keep & bear Humakt, Hastatus, Elmal, Babeester,
Sagittus & Arran, shall not be infringed."

Second article of the so-called "Bill of Limitations" that the people of
Dragon Pass extracted from king Argrath on Orlanth' High Holy Day 1691.

Christoph Kohring, not an arkati-shaman-trickster: just a trickster. ;)

"A well-educated population being necessary for the welfare of a peaceful
kingdom, the right of the sartarites to keep & bear quills & parchments,
shall not be infringed."

Murrion Readbeard the Fiscalist shortly before his banishment c. 1648...
