In June I went out to Colorado to visit my brother and his wife near Fort Collins, but while I was out there managed to swing by the Denver area to meet with some of the Erteiers in that area for a low-key TalossaWest gathering. Talossans in attendance included myself, King John, Count Thord (a.k.a. Baron Hooligan), and Sir Trotxa Betiñeir. A few other citizens said they'd try to come but weren't able to make it.
We started out with dinner at a Lebanese restaurant (figuring it was close enough to Berber food), then moved on to a nearby microbrewery for a couple of pints. Both the King and myself meant to bring our copies of Loom of Language for an in-person administration of the Seneschal's oath, but ended up forgetting. Nonetheless, a great time was had by all. I hope we can repeat the event next time I'm in Colorado.

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: Nothing would please me more to return to greater activity and find a healthier, happier, more fun, and thriving Talossa than the current state of affairs. Truly!

Ian Plätschisch: Can't say I blame you for reducing your activity given everything else you have going on. But, my post was not to say that Talossa would be better off without you (or without anyone), only that pessimism isn't going to help (and that simply hoping that...
