Does anybody know if there are any Deryni Steampunk books or fan fiction out there?

Not that I am aware of, though feel free to write some.... ;)

You might check one of the various (not Deryni specific) fanfic sites to see if they have any Deryni fiction that might meet that description. Fanfiction.net is one that has a fair collection of Deryni fanfic, although a steampunk one isn't coming to mind at the moment.

Kelric Morgan, Duke of Corwyn, dipped the quill in the ink bottle and then hastily added his signature for the dozenth time to another parchment giving out orders for the following day. This last order doled out provisions for the troops. These were the orders that kept their small army of men, six hundred strong, in disciplined ranks toward the city of Laas. In the current climate of the Province of Meara it was a task not as simple as it should be. Duke Kelric was the highest ranking noble, thusly he lead this army. Although his own men were few, making up but one small battalion under Baron Sieur II de Vali. Nearly all the men came under the rule of Earl Duncan Michael McLain of Kierney or Baron Jass MacArdry of Truill and Culdi.  Kelric sprinkled sand across his inked signature, than he shuffled the parchment to the stack of signed orders for Baron de Vali to attend to. His attention turned back to the center of the camp table; another parchment glared at him under the candle light. Requests from Munroe’s battalion to join under Korben’s men. This gave Kelric pause, he had thought to move the men to Baron de Vali’s leadership to give strength to his own men, but perhaps Korben would be a better choice, given that Korben was a boardman and knew this land like the back of his hand. Lord de Vali  was a Corwyn man, a good one, but not as well known by Munroe’s battalion.

Kelric frowned as he considered Captain Munroe’s death, the first loss of one of his men in this rebellion. At mid afternoon, their front men had come upon an ambush. These Mearan rebels were more widespread than had first been told. Kelric’s, Duncan Michael’s and Jass’s men had been harassed in half the small bergs and villages along the road out of Ratherkin, mostly by obstacles meant to slow them down. Carts and plows abandoned on narrow parts in the road. Caltrops and spikes scattered in river crossings where they could not be seen under the water. Kelric’s scoots were good, they reported these findings well ahead of the army’s arrival. However, the clearing of this things took time, time that was not affordable.  After two days they had only marched one-third the distance to Laas; a courier could have gotten there and back again in the same time. Ambush had been a concern at every obstacle, at first the rebels had remained distant and unseen, that is until late on this day when arrows had been lobbied at them from a crest of a hillside. Most arrows were deflected, few did damage. Only one had been fatel and that wasn’t even from the initial surprise attack. Kelric had given the first warning of enemy on the hill sides. Captain Munroe vigorously lead a cavalry charge up the hill, successfully scattering the rebels. Monroe took that one fatal arrow as he crest the hillside. Hours later, the loss was felt by many as camp was set. Kelric considered the request on the parchment before him. Sir Korben was a good leader, one of Kierney’s best. He had proved himself today charging down the pair of men who had taken Munroe’s life. Making the decision, Kelric put his signature to the request and placed it atop the finished pile. One last parchment before him and he blindly signed it, tired of it all and ready to be done with this necessary but unwelcome part of his duties. Kelric’s lips turned upward as he recalled how much his father had hated this part of his duties as well.

Duncan Michael McLain strode over to the duke with a pint of Cassan ale in his hand. “If your done we should call it an early night. We need to get these men to Laas, and that means a hard march tomorrow.”

“Agreed,” Kelric said absently picking up the last page, glancing at it quickly before moving it to the finished pile. When he read the ending paragraph above his signature his hand froze, his eyes bulged and he forced himself to read the paragraph in full. 

Kelric Alain Morgan Duke of Corwyn, by request of King Kelson of Gwynedd, do I hereby revoke the hereditary rights of succession to the second son of Alaric Morgan, for reasons listed above. One Sir Washburn Alaric Cynfyn Morgan is removed from the rights of inheritance from the Morgan family line. His rights of succession  for himself and for any progeny of his loins for the Duchy of Corwyn and for the Earldom of Lendour are hereby revoked as of this day the eighth and twentieth day of July, in the year of our lord 1064…

“God’s Blood!” Kelric exclaimed.  “I thought I ordered this to NOT be scribed. Who wrote this?”
 
Baron Sieur II de Vali stepped from his own work by the tent entrance. “Your Grace, I heard you give the orders for this to be written out for your approval after your contact with his majesty, I do not recall you rescinding that order.”

Kelric sighed, remembering too well the poor timing. “I had second thoughts at noon. I gave the order to Monroe to have you informed. That would have been before the attack.”

The duke frowned at his signature upon the parchment. Here was legal rights to remove his brother from the line of succession and thusly relinquish his brother’s noble standing from all but his knighthood. Washburn was fourth in line to the Morgan claims, Kelric’s three sons had presidents. His king had reminded him of the danger Washburn’s captivity posed to his sons, the king’s grandsons. They would be targets for the enemy for so long as Washburn remained in the enemy’s hands. If, as the spy Iain had reported, Washburn was to be subjected to reconditioning to become the enemy’s hand, and to produce progeny that were loyal to the sons of Teymuraz than he became a threat to all his blood relatives. The enemy planed to use him to gain control of the Duchy of Corwyn.  Removing his brother from the succession legally, by order of the king, removed the threat. It made sense from a dynastic point of view. But this was his baby brother. The boy he had to raise up as his own son when their father had been killed. What the king had not said but what was known by both men was this order also reduced the value of his brother in ransom which in turn would likely get him killed. In no way did Kelric wish for such a thing. Yet, his signature glared up at him from the parchment he had just signed.

Duncan Michael looked over his shoulder, “I understand your sorrow in this, your grace. Think on it,  sometimes, it is a higher hand watching out for us. There may be good reason that you have put your signature to this.  I know you had cancelled the order to have this written, I heard you then. But here it is anyway. You’re distraction was not my intention just now, but I am glad you have put your name to it. When Washburn is returned to us, you can reverse what is written here,“ the earl said solemnly offering the pint of ale. Both Baron Jass and Baron Sieur gave small nodes of agreement. 

“Can I?” Kelric asked rebellious and perplexed. He shook his finger in frustration at all three men, refusing both their offered advice and the offered ale. “Some things you can not take back once they are done. This damage might be reversible legally, but the damage to my brother and our relationship would be irrevocable. I can not and will not do this to the man, he deserves better than this from me. If he proves himself to be a betrayer, than that would be cause to sign this. I don’t have that proof!”

“It is already signed by your grace’s hand,” Duncan Michael dared to state.

Kelric’s fingers turned white knuckled as he grasped the edge of the parchment. He lifted the signed order up before him. Three men stood watching him, each feeling his pain, but each believing this was the best course of action.  Just then, the silver eyes of the duke flashed, the the center of the parchment with the order upon it burst to flame, as the flame grew the duke’s hand tossed what was left into the brazier at the table’s side.

“No ale for me tonight.” Kelric was determined that he was in the right. “I need a clear head to make contact with the king. I will explain my actions to him and to no one else.”

Evie, Matt has inquired about the DA and he lives nearby so I could just deliver them to him.  However, you have first dibs.  I asked for your zip code as the post office might want it in order to give me a rate.  Let me know what you want to do.

Thanks,
Marilyn

If Matt lives close to you, that would probably be easiest for you. I sent you my zip code via PM last week; however, my water heater decided to spring a major leak this weekend and will need to be replaced, so I probably need to wait until we get that issue sorted before spending money on fun stuff.   :-\

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:51 PM EDT] <Shiral> Travlum
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:46:01 PM EDT] <Laurna> Until Fistel II married the heiress of Mooryn and then he divied up the land into two duchies.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:46:05 PM EDT] <jemler> myth-ridden Mooryn according to the poem.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:46:24 PM EDT] <Shiral> I think he and Kelric will be going through their whole page and squire training together.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:46:34 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I think Mooryn must have been very powerful in its day.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:04 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yes it was very rich due to the trade from Coroth harbor and it was Deryni
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:17 PM EDT] <jemler> i just like the name for some reason.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:20 PM EDT] <KK> I'm back. And the cats are happy. I told them I'd be back, but they don't always believe me.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> happy cats are good cats
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:38 PM EDT] <judyward> Our cats know us so well.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:45 PM EDT] <Laurna> not mischievous cats.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:47:56 PM EDT] <The_Bee> unless they're happily making mischief
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:48:02 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:48:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tati's favorite game is joining me as I read the morning paper, and then flopping down on them for tummy rubs.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:48:13 PM EDT] <KK> And Booker is sleeping on the other side of my desk. I heard snoring from that direction, but wasn't sure who it was.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:48:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:48:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sleepy pupper!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:48:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys doesn't like it if I read in a seated position, but she'll let me lie down in bed and read. Cats. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:49:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (She'll park her furry butt between my face and the book if I try to sit in a chair and read.)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:49:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tati is not notably in favor of her human reading....anything
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:49:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:50:11 PM EDT] <KK> What is amazing is when they go into zoomie mode, and race around the house, bouncing off walls and tackling one another. A person could get knocked off their feet if caught in the midst of such shennanigans.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:50:11 PM EDT] <Shiral> She also tried to help me fill in my ballot
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:50:12 PM EDT] <judyward> And never mind reading the paper!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:50:44 PM EDT] <Laurna> Do cats do zoomies. i know my dogs do.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:50:59 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, cats do zoomies, too.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:01 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yeah. There's a nice clear path from my front door to my diningroom sliding door that's a cat race track
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Cats absolutely do zoomies. Particularly at 4 am when no human is awake (usually).
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> How a cat who weighs less than 8 pounds can sound like a wildebeast on the stairs, I do not know
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:31 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, and sometimes you hear "CRASH!"
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:45 PM EDT] <Laurna> Woops
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:51:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys is markedly fond of knocking the bamboo back-scratcher to the floor, largely because it makes a lot of noise and thus gets my attenion.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:52:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Micckey sometimes chases Melantha around my apartment. He acts like he doesn't realize he's neutered.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:52:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> I have a hutch in my diningroom that I keep closed most of the time. So obviously, Dmitri finds it fascinating
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:52:19 PM EDT] <Laurna> My cat does not do zoomies but she can jump a 6 foot fence with out hisitation.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:52:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sometimes they don't. Evie has said that Luke doesn't always seem to, and will attempt to mate with Gigi, who is NOT amused by that! (They're both fixed.)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I've seen a cat try to mate wwith a dog.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:29 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yeah, when Dmitri and Tati fight, it's usually about that
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:31 PM EDT] <KK> Where is Evie tonight? Helping her parents settle in?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Her parents invited them to supper.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:42 PM EDT] <judyward> Fuzzybutt used to chase dogs.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:45 PM EDT] <KK> Ah.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:53:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So she's hanging with her parents and her kids (and I assume her DH, unless he had to work).
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:54:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But the kids were both off work on the same night, which doesn't happen too often, and she doesn't get to see her DS as much since he lives on his own.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:55:57 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Going to go for tonight. Have a good week everyone See you next week

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:21:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Since hurricane season isn't over for another several weeks, I'll pass on 50 mph wind!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:22:24 PM EDT] <KK> We had some wind lawst night, but all the leaves on the ground are wither brown or green; nothing in between.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:22:24 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Just a serious cold front blowing through
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:22:47 PM EDT] <Catri> We had one of our most brilliant foliage seasons in NH this year!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:22:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> wind chill here today
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:23:04 PM EDT] <bynw> its funny that tropical storms and hurricanes are named. but not inland thunderstorms and tornados
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:23:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> One of these days, I'm going to manage to get to New England and see the fall color.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:23:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Not enough time, a lot of the time, bynw.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:23:51 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah with the tropical variety you know they are coming with mine you dont know until they are taking your roof off
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:23:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> With a tropical cyclone, you've got a fairish bit of warning before they come near any land; thunderstorms can pop up in minutes, and tornadoes don't really give you a lot of lead time either!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:24:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> There was an effort to name blizzards, I don't know if it caught on.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:24:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think they're still naming the winter storm systems, yes.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:24:38 PM EDT] <bynw> get one of those thundersnow storms
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:24:39 PM EDT] <jemler> Dairy Queen objected to the idea, Bee.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:24:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So, KK, how are you doing, and how is LBM?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:25:03 PM EDT] <Catri> Yes they are. I think it is rather silly since most of them don't carry the power of hurricanes!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:25:05 PM EDT] <Shiral> Today I spent about an hour raking and sweeping my back patio. There's a tree nearby that keeps my patio nice cool and shady in the summer, but in October and November, it sheds leaves with great enthusiasm. Most of them seem to fall into my patio area

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:26:17 PM EDT] <judyward> True! I was taking a nap.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:26:34 PM EDT] <judyward> Me, too, Bee. What's been going on? Everyone OK?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:26:44 PM EDT] <jemler> i was going to congradulate you on being pregnant, but...

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:27:50 PM EDT] <KK> I'm good. And LBM is doing much better, health-wise, though short-term memory is getting more and more shaky.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:28:21 PM EDT] <bynw> hi judyward
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:28:23 PM EDT] <Laurna> I understand that that goes KK. My dad is doing the same thing.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:28:33 PM EDT] <The_Bee> good news , KK
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:28:42 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, that's good to hear! And short term memory goes for all of us eventually.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:29:00 PM EDT] <The_Bee> about LBM's health, not her memory lapses
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:29:01 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi, bynw
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:30:08 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm okay, except I lost my keys on my way to church.

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:30:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sorry, was afk. :P
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:30:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yikes, Bee, did you find them again?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:30:31 PM EDT] <judyward> Everyone having good weather? We have another cold front coming tomorrow.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:30:47 PM EDT] <The_Bee> cold this week
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:30:56 PM EDT] <judyward> Either that, or she had spares.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:31:07 PM EDT] <jemler> our cold front is all around.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:31:09 PM EDT] <judyward> We had 40s last Mon & Tue
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:31:30 PM EDT] <judyward> Where do you live, Jemler? I forgot.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:31:47 PM EDT] <The_Bee> no, My landlord broought me replacements. If I lose them again, they'll need to install new locks.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:31:59 PM EDT] <jemler> eastern ohio
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:32:08 PM EDT] <judyward> Maybe they are in your car?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:32:24 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, OK, Jemler. I guess winter is setting in up there.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:32:35 PM EDT] <KK> No car, Judyward. But maybe they fell from her trike.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:32:50 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL! Better check those tassles.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:33:15 PM EDT] <KK> Down a storm drain or something equally obnoxious. Lost keys are a bitch!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:33:30 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I don't dirve, I ride my bike. They must have fallen out of my pocket. I used them to lock my apartment door, so I know theey're not in my apartment.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:33:37 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, they are because you are so exposed if anyone finds them.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:03 PM EDT] <judyward> Nothing on retracing your route?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:12 PM EDT] <Catri> I am afraid I will have to leave. It has been great meeting you all! I promise I shan't be a stranger! Have a good night, friends!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, see you later, Catri!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:26 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good night Catri
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:26 PM EDT] <The_Bee> there's no ID on them, except my CVS card.

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> I once lost my keys down a public toilet. That was a very bad moment.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:35 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Bye Catri
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi jerusha

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:40 PM EDT] <Laurna> Hello Jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I bet there were a lot of swear words, Shiral.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:52 PM EDT] <jemler> hi jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:53 PM EDT] <jerusha> Hi Everyone!

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> Luckily, I had extra car keys and my landlord had spare keys for my doors. HI Jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:34:58 PM EDT] <Laurna> Oh Dear Shiral
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:01 PM EDT] <bynw> hi jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:20 PM EDT] <Shiral> One might even say "S-Bombs" DR. Rather appropriate, considering the setting. =o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or, I know I'D turn the air blue if I lost my keys down a public toilet!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:44 PM EDT] <jerusha> Or even a private one
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:35:56 PM EDT] <judyward> Right!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> True!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> It was one of those moments you can see the disaster happen, but can't move quite fast enough to prevent it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:11 PM EDT] <Laurna> No one needs that
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I would be showing my daughter-of-a-submarine-sailor language like whoa!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:31 PM EDT] <KK> I've heard of people losing their keys or cellphones down a toilet. If ever an S-bomb was warranted....
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:37 PM EDT] <jerusha> Kind of one of those slow motion moments
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:36:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Right?!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:03 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah cell phones can fall out of pockets at any time
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm actually oddly phobic of bringing my phone into the bathroom, precisely for that reason; I'm afraid I'll drop it in the toilet.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> Knock on wood, I've never lost my phone down a toilet. And now, when I'm going into public restrooms, I put my keys in my PURSE, not my pocket
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> On a happier note, Melantha's medicine seems to be working.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:40 PM EDT] <jerusha> That's good, Bee
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:46 PM EDT] <Laurna> My favorite slow motion momements are when I am falling. You know you're going down and can not think of any way to stop it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:49 PM EDT] <Shiral> I did once put a former iPod through the wash. It was a clean end.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:50 PM EDT] <judyward> That's good to hear, Bee.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My keys have one of those clips so I hang them from one of the little metal things on my purse strap.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:37:58 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good for Melantha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> Glad to hear Melantha's better, Bee
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yay for Melantha, Bee!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:16 PM EDT] <bynw> kitties being better is always good
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:18 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Now i only I coould get her to eat her cat food. all she seems to want is treats.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I did that on the dance floor at my high school reunion, Laurna.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It didn't help that I wasn't particularly sober. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:38:46 PM EDT] <Laurna> No help at all DR.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:03 PM EDT] <judyward> You're not supposed to be sober at a HS reunion.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Just enough drink to think I could pull off the dance move, and too much to recover when I couldn't!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:22 PM EDT] <KK> I did a slip and fall while Scocttish country dancing in Edinburgh. Very embarrassing.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> No.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:24 PM EDT] <Laurna> oh dear
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:28 PM EDT] <judyward> Uh-oh!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ow, KK!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> On no KK
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:50 PM EDT] <KK> Glad to hear that Melantha is doing better, Bee.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:39:55 PM EDT] <judyward> I stepped on my dress & fell at a company party.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:04 PM EDT] <jerusha> oops
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:08 PM EDT] <judyward> Also not particularly sober.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> I once slipped in my college cafeteria
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My dress for the reunion is about knee-length, so I didn't even have that excuse!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (I still own the dress, hence the present tense.)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> my heel just slid out from under me
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:48 PM EDT] <Laurna> I fell at the last victorian ball. slipped on my gown. So embarressed
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:40:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I took a spill at work back in my pizza delivery driver days.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:41:08 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I think hyperthyroidism is a chronic condition, so she'll probably be taking her medicine permanently.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:41:17 PM EDT] <KK> Heels can be treacherous. I no longer wear high heels. My balance isn't that good. And if you hit the wrong kind of floor at the wrong angle....
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:41:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Primarily because my coworkers had been having a fight with water and the spray release (aka commercial-kitchen Pam).
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:41:35 PM EDT] <judyward> A couple years ago I fell in a wet Wal-Mart parking lot. Lots of nice people rushed over to help.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:42:12 PM EDT] <jerusha> High heels and I would be very dangerous
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:42:25 PM EDT] <KK> Hyper or hypo. Bee? Either way, taking medication indefinitely is not all that bad.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:42:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't wear heels often, and mostly not unless they're chunky or wedge heels. I own one pair of kitten heels (but they're low, maybe 1.5") and one pair of taller, slim heels, but I almost never wear them. It's just there are certain outfits that don't work with flats.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:42:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> I agree High heels are for youth
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:42:35 PM EDT] <judyward> I don't wear them anymore either. knees.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:42:40 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I haven't worn high heels for decades.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:04 PM EDT] <jerusha> I would hurt myself if I wore them
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:06 PM EDT] <KK> I really should purge my show closet.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Your show closet?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:16 PM EDT] <KK> shoe
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:17 PM EDT] <jerusha> You are showing your closet?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or was that meant to be "shoe."
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Gotcha.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:36 PM EDT] <Shiral> I like pretty shoes, but not trying to walk in overly high heels
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:45 PM EDT] <Derynifank> My theory is if God wanted me to be 3 inches taller he would have made me that way
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:47 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hyper. I'm hypo, Melantha's hyper.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mother did that after she retired, purged her closet of most of her work clothes (let her coworkers take what they wanted and then donated the rest) and most of her dressy shoes as well.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:52 PM EDT] <Laurna> I like a show closet verse a private closet
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:43:55 PM EDT] <judyward> Professional dog handlers have show closets.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, Derynifank!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:11 PM EDT] <KK> I was never good in really high heels. Aboiut 2" was my pax comfort level. Wedges are still ok.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:12 PM EDT] <judyward> That was nice of her, DR
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> It could contain the wardrobe you wear TO shows.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My joke for years has been, "I'm already 5'8", I don't need to be much taller, really."
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:49 PM EDT] <Laurna> I had 4" heels when I was young.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:44:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She didn't need the office attire any more; she retired to STAY that way, LOL, and several of her coworkers were around her size so they could use the clothes.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:03 PM EDT] <Laurna> now 1" is too high
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't think I ever owned a pair higher than 3".
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:10 PM EDT] <judyward> The tallest heels I ever wore were some Candies in the 70s.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> Anything over 2" is OUT for me.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:25 PM EDT] <KK> That was kind of her. And I'm sure her former co-workers appreciated having some new to them clothes and shoes.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:34 PM EDT] <Laurna> My girl friend loved her 6" platforms. Yikes
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, judyward, my mom had a pair of those (Candies); her coworkers used to pick on her about sounding like horseshoes coming down the terrazo hallway.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:43 PM EDT] <jerusha> ouch
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:45:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh heck no! 6" heels, not on your life!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:00 PM EDT] <judyward> Yep, they were hard and unforgiving.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:09 PM EDT] <KK> For a while there, I would warn Scott that I was going to fall off my shoes if I tried to walk fast. Those days are past.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:28 PM EDT] <jerusha> Sensible shoes are a good thing
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:29 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Candies--candy scandies?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:38 PM EDT] <judyward> None of us party like we used to.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, Bee, they're shoes. Hang on a sec, and I'll see if I can find a pic.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:49 PM EDT] <jerusha> Amen
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:46:55 PM EDT] <Shiral> No reason shoes can't look nice and be comforrtable
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:47:11 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'm pretty sure I don't need to sound like a pony
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:47:26 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I loved ypthev
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:47:39 PM EDT] <judyward> What?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:47:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-candies-heels-6-5-/223196943950 Those actually look very like the ones my mom had, except I think hers had a lighter shade of leather, more a cream than a tan.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:47:46 PM EDT] <jerusha> Russian shoes?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:47:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> More gibberish haha

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:48:24 PM EDT] <judyward> Mine looked like the enlarged picture.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:48:27 PM EDT] <Laurna> I need a heel strap or I walk right out of them.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:48:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> I never even tried on a pair of candies
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:48:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I wore my mom's a couple of times, but that was when I was little and my feet were too small for them.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:48:57 PM EDT] <judyward> You had to have your balance to wear them!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> The 70 were fun when people came to the EL with injuries they got from falling off their shoes
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (That was a long time ago; I was in adult women's shoe sizes by the time my age was in two digits.)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:20 PM EDT] <KK> Those look brutal.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:22 PM EDT] <judyward> Me, too.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:35 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Nope, post from my laptop
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Mom and I wore the same shoe size for about a year, maybe two, in my early teens, and then my feet got bigger (again) and we couldn't wear the same shoes any more.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:49:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> ER not EL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My brothers used to call me Sasquatch and tell me I was like a puppy, someday I'd grow into my feet (that last bit was true, at least).
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:20 PM EDT] <judyward> Mine got bigger than my Mom's feet, too.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I mean i remember commercials for shoes called "candy scandies" When I heard the jingle, i thought they were advertising women's underwear called "panty scanties."
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:27 PM EDT] <Laurna> I had spiked heels in highschool, feel down the stairs several times. Good thing I wore ankle length skirts in those days to hide my bruised knees.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:42 PM EDT] <bynw> ouch
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm taller than Mom, too. I got my paternal grandmother's height and build.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ouch, Laurna!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:50:58 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Sounds painful
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:51:26 PM EDT] <judyward> Yep, she was 5'3" and I'm 5'5"
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:51:35 PM EDT] <Laurna> I was never good at staying on my feet.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:51:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sometimes I think part of why Nana got to be such a good seamstress was that women's ready-to-wear didn't fit her; she was 5'9" but born in 1919, so REALLY tall for that generation.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:51:50 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Platform shoes caused a lot of ankle and foot injuries
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:51:50 PM EDT] <judyward> I used to be 5'6".
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I was 5'4" now I'm 5'3"
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I used to be almost 5'9" but bad spinal discs have taken me down an inch or so.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:07 PM EDT] <judyward> They keep orthos in business.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:13 PM EDT] <Laurna> 5'8" here
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> I have a pair of very wide-legged pants, and when I wear then to work, they're always getting under the chair wheels. It's annoying
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:15 PM EDT] <jerusha> 5' 2" here
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:21 PM EDT] <judyward> Yep, getting shorter now.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:25 PM EDT] <jemler> toomany hot baths, bee.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:26 PM EDT] <KK> Platform shoes are dangerous.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:29 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Gravity is winning the height war
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, ain't THAT the truth, Derynifank!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:52:52 PM EDT] <Shiral> 5'6" here. My family tends to the short. But then there's my nephew, who's over 6'
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:53:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm actually one of the short ones in my family.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:53:09 PM EDT] <judyward> If it would shrink my fat, I'd take a hot bath every day.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:53:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or, at least, I'm not among the tallest.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:53:34 PM EDT] <Shiral> Alas, it's never that easy, Judyward. =o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:53:49 PM EDT] <judyward> Yeah (SIGH!)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:53:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The Kiddo and one of my cousins are both about 5'4"-5'5", and everyone else is 5'7"+.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:54:13 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am tall among the women, but the men are all very tall. Brothers are 6' 3" each
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:54:43 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My sistersare both sshorter than I am.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:54:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My oldest brother is 6'1", my middle brother was 6' even, and my youngest brother is actually slightly shorter than I am, but he got their mom's height, build, and general look.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:55:30 PM EDT] <jemler> i was about 5'10"
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:55:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Brothers' mom was 5'1" if that.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:55:36 PM EDT] <judyward> My dad was 6'1" but my brothers were 5'11" and 5'6 1/2
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:55:43 PM EDT] <The_Bee> How tall is Alaric?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:55:50 PM EDT] <Laurna> I didn't know you had 3 brother's DR? Are you the only girl?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:55:51 PM EDT] <judyward> are, that is
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I am. And the baby of the family. Hence the Sasquatch jokes. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:04 PM EDT] <judyward> Alaric was tall, 6' or so, right?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:07 PM EDT] <Laurna> Alaric is very tall.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:15 PM EDT] <jerusha> For that timne
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:21 PM EDT] <jerusha> time
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:36 PM EDT] <judyward> Tall & blonde! The ladies must have had dreams!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> They have another sister, their mom's daughter by her second marriage, who is five years older than I am to the day.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:56:59 PM EDT] <jerusha> They are not the only ones, judyward
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:57:01 PM EDT] <Laurna> All the ladies, even here, have our dreams, Judy. LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:57:06 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Oh they did until Richenda got him
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:57:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And my oldest brother's wife also shares that birthday. So my big brother is in a world of trouble if he ever forgets!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:57:15 PM EDT] <KK> I've always pictured Alaric as sort of medium height. He'd be taller than most men, being of the aristocracy, and therefore well-fed, but not so tall that he'd stand out seriously. So, maybe just short of 6'?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:57:32 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, yes! I'm a real Alaric fan!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:07 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I thought of Alaric as 6 ft with Duncan 5'10 or so
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:17 PM EDT] <jerusha> I tend to think Alaric would tend to stand out, nevertheless
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Today is actually their wedding anniversary, my oldest brother and SIL.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:29 PM EDT] <Shiral> He's the sort of man who gets himself noticed
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:39 PM EDT] <Laurna> indeed!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:53 PM EDT] <KK> Well, there is that, Jerusha. ;-)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:55 PM EDT] <jerusha> Not the subtle type
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:58:58 PM EDT] <judyward> Aww! Happy Anniversary to them!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:59:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Absolutely!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:59:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Thanks!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [7:59:46 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Alaric is outstanding in so many ways
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:00:05 PM EDT] <judyward> Richenda seems to think so.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:00:08 PM EDT] <Shiral> He definitely knows what to do with a sword
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:00:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And probably, Her Grace will pull someone up short if they think they're going to do more than dream about her husband!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:00:36 PM EDT] <KK> There's a definite charisma there. I well remember a friend of ours in Scotland--drop-dead gorgeous. He'd come into a room, and every woman's head would swivel in his direction. And not a few men's, too. (Turned out, he was gay, as we later found out, but that didn't detract.)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:00:41 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, yes, she would!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:00:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Doesn't make him any less appealing as eye candy. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:01 PM EDT] <judyward> True!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> In a completely proper way, she'd put an end to any other woman doing more than a little innocent flirting.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:40 PM EDT] <KK> Definitely true. Just like men, we ladies can happily admire from afar. Purely on the aesthetic, you understand. ;-)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:46 PM EDT] <judyward> I would not want to tangle with a ticked-off Richenda
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:53 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Nope
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> But then, she's the mother of his children, and Alaric never got serious about anyone until he met Richenda
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:01:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, probably inadvisable at best.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:01 PM EDT] <jerusha> Neither does Alaric
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:15 PM EDT] <Laurna> I will just smile from where I am sitting and not get into The Duchess of Corwyn's way.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:29 PM EDT] <judyward> Good idea!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:34 PM EDT] <Shiral> Oh definitely, we can appreciate the aesthetics without causing offense.=o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys says Hi. She just parked her fuzzy butt on my desk above the keyboard tray.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:50 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi, Carys.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:51 PM EDT] <jerusha> Hi Carys
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:02:58 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi Carys
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:01 PM EDT] <Laurna> Purr Carys
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Her Grace of Corwyn won't mind if you look, so long as that's ALL you do. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:07 PM EDT] <judyward> Ceasar is lying beside my chair.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:17 PM EDT] <The_Bee> KK, any work on Killingford yet?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:22 PM EDT] <bynw> yummy ... my wife made little banana bread mini muffins
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:24 PM EDT] <Shiral> She probably gets plenty of looks of her own
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:27 PM EDT] <judyward> And no mental flirting directly for the Deryni ladies.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Probably. Lady Richenda does seem to be quite lovely in her own right. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:03:57 PM EDT] <judyward> I bet so, Shiral.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:02 PM EDT] <Laurna> That is what Shields are for Judy
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:02 PM EDT] <Derynifank> They are a smashing couple
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:03 PM EDT] <Shiral> One of the first things Alaric noticed about HER, after all. =o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:04 PM EDT] <KK> No Killingford yet. I spent part of the last week getting my keyboard and mouse sorted. Can't work without them functioning properlou.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I got Revanne onto Loreena McKennitt's music, and she commented that Loreena looks a lot like her mental picture of Richenda.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> What a moment for the rented fingers to act up. =o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:41 PM EDT] <jerusha> Keyboard and mouse working are important
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:47 PM EDT] <KK> Tonight, I am bracketed by Gus on the desk to my right and Sasha on the desk to my left. All is well in cat land.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:04:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, hi Gus and Sasha.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:04 PM EDT] <judyward> Sounds like they are happy.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:06 PM EDT] <jerusha> Purrs in their direction
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> If you want to write something that doesn't sound as if it was poorly translated from Finnish, yes.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> I love Loreena Mckennitt.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:18 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Glad they are there to supervise
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:19 PM EDT] * The_Bee scritches all available kitties.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> Mine are dozing in their favorite sunny spots in my bedroom
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:44 PM EDT] <KK> What kind of music does she play?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:05:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> Sugar has settled onthe couch next to me after her bath.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:06:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> Celtic
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:06:29 PM EDT] <Shiral> Similar to Enya, but more interesting IMO
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:06:36 PM EDT] <judyward> I like a lot of the Celtic genre.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:06:53 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Love Celtics music will have to look her up
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:07:06 PM EDT] <Laurna> A little more popular than Enya and Clannad but simmilar
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:07:21 PM EDT] <The_Bee> me too. High Kings, Celltic Thunders, others
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:08:01 PM EDT] <Shiral>
/>[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:08:03 PM EDT] <jerusha> Celtic Women
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:08:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She's Canadian and does a lot of Celtic traditional stuff as well as some other pieces in that general area of music. She's released a couple of songs that are poems set to music, notably "The Highwayman" and "The Lady of Shallott."
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:08:48 PM EDT] <jemler> mckennit?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:08:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> McKennitt, two Ts.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:13 PM EDT] <Laurna> I didn't know she was Canadian?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Also some Arabic-influenced music.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:33 PM EDT] <Shiral> She does a lot of interesting experiments
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A lot of Canadians are of Scottish or Irish (or both) ancestry.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:39 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I've bookmarked to site for later.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:49 PM EDT] <jerusha> Or welsh
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:54 PM EDT] <The_Bee> the site
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:09:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That too. :)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:10:19 PM EDT] <Laurna> I am listening as I read. very pleasant music
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:10:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I posted a video of "The Highwayman" to my Facebook, which was what got Revanne onto her.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:10:42 PM EDT] <KK> I've also brought up the sound on that one.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:10:55 PM EDT] <jerusha> I have The Highwayman on her CD
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:10:57 PM EDT] <Laurna> That was the song that interested me years ago.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:11:10 PM EDT] <judyward> Is your FB under DesertRose?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:11:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (I also picked on myself for not having realized until I was well into adulthood that Alfred Noyes, the poet who wrote that poem, was British; for some goofy reason, I'd always pictured that poem as taking place in colonial New England, no idea why.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:11:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, judyward, my legal name.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:11:22 PM EDT] <jerusha> Good, but disturbing in its own way
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:11:40 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, OK.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:11:52 PM EDT] <KK> DR, you are not alone. I also originally pictured it as taking place in New England.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:12:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> As an English major, I should have known better, though. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:12:13 PM EDT] <bynw> FB sometimes wont let you use nicknames as your name even if you use that name more
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:12:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Time period is right, just wrong side of the Atlantic.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:12:50 PM EDT] <Derynifank> So what name do we look for?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:13:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> PM me if you want to know. I'm not comfortable putting it in chat here, because this will get posted to the forum, and you don't have to be a member to read it as far as I know.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:13:41 PM EDT] <jerusha> Good point, DR
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:14:01 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Ok, I understand. Thanks
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:14:03 PM EDT] <jerusha> I'm not on facebook. Maybe after I retire
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:14:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And my legal first name is somewhat uncommon, although Derynifank may know people with my surname since, IIRC, she's in the Hampton Roads area (which is where my father's family is from).
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:14:35 PM EDT] <The_Bee> The line about "King Georges's men came marching might be a clue to the setting.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:14:37 PM EDT] <Laurna> My facebook pages are very small. mostly only people from here.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:14:45 PM EDT] Quit judyward (judyward@OWIRCN-cdcc182c.res.rr.com) has left this server (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client).
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:15:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, that could have been pre-revolutionary New England, too, Bee. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:15:15 PM EDT] <jerusha> Night, judyward?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:15:17 PM EDT] <Laurna> I pictured it in England not new England. funny
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:15:17 PM EDT] <KK> Yeah, I'd always thought that King George's men put it back in England.

[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:15:37 PM EDT] <judyward> d
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:16:00 PM EDT] <Laurna> You should Join IRC cloud
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:16:11 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I have a Facebook page but rarely posy, just follow a few close friends
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:16:24 PM EDT] <judyward> I did do that one week but I feel more comfortable with Kiwi
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:16:25 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Post
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:17:18 PM EDT] <judyward> I have to run out & feed the feral kitties. One is my friend now & wants to be petted a lot. BRB.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:17:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:18:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> KK there was a new peroson on the forum asking about the Codex. Any talk of going digital yet with the Codex.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:18:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Most of my Facebook activity is playing Words with Friends.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:19:26 PM EDT] <KK> There's talk, but Rob's widow is reluctant to let me do an expanded version, so it's been on hold for a while.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:20:12 PM EDT] <Laurna> I really hope it comes about. with the new info too. So keeping fingers crossed.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:20:26 PM EDT] <KK> Given that it's pretty much OP now, maybe she'd be more amenable now.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:21:24 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Would love to see it go further than1130. Keeping my fingers crossed too
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:21:37 PM EDT] <judyward> Kitties fed.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:21:49 PM EDT] <jemler> to what?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:22:03 PM EDT] * DesertRose dispenses with the fish and just backhands jemler.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:22:05 PM EDT] <Shiral> If it goes later than 1130, There will be a whole new generation to write about. =o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:22:07 PM EDT] <Laurna> I would like all the King's Deryni Info in it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:22:19 PM EDT] <jemler> lol
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:22:31 PM EDT] <Laurna> LOL I missed that Jemler, to funny
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:23:18 PM EDT] <judyward> Baaaad, Jemler!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:23:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Since I already goofed and posted this specifically addressed at jemler (which I did NOT mean to do!), have a dreadful pun with some adorable photos. https://twitter.com/RustyBertrand/status/1048960317957529600
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:23:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> A very well qualified employee. =o)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:24:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If you scroll down the thread, a lot of people posted photos of "shop cats" from around the world.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:25:53 PM EDT] <judyward> Shop cats are so neat!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:26:44 PM EDT] <jerusha> Unless they leave mouse-bits behind
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:26:54 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:27:24 PM EDT] <KK> Great site! I must bookmark it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:06 PM EDT] <KK> In Ireland, mouse parts, particularly mouse-faces, were left for us regularly, usually in the great hall.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:14 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Love it
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:20 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yikes
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If you have a rodent problem, cats are often quite good at solving it!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:27 PM EDT] <KK> Sometimes it would be a mouse-stomach.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ew
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:36 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Ewww
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:50 PM EDT] <judyward> Fuzzy left the liver, everytime. Just the liver.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:52 PM EDT] <jerusha> Put a new meaning to facebook
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:56 PM EDT] <KK> Occasionally other mouse guts. I think they learned to spsit those parts out. Stomach is probably sour if one bites into it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:28:59 PM EDT] <Laurna> Shivers, I guess that would be part of living in centuries old dewlings
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:29:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's a thing for bookshops and libraries, too; I guess bookbindings taste good to mice?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:29:43 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There are a lot of bookshops with shop cats and not a few libraries with a library cat, too.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:14 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I had a friend who lived in a fairly new beach house whose cat regularly left mice whole or parts, at the front door
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:29 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, they brought them in from outside, often played them to death, then usually ate them. Mostly. I'll never forget stepping bare-footed on a partially decomposed mouse body one morning, when I wasn't looking where I was going.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:31 PM EDT] <jerusha> On that happy note, I must go and do laundry. Nighers, Everyone
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:35 PM EDT] <judyward> I read somewhere that mice like the glue in old bindings.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:41 PM EDT] <Laurna> We had rats when I first moved in here. but then the took out the orange groves and put in housing . that solved the rat proplem
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:43 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'm grateful that my kitties appear to only hunt bugs
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, dogs can sort out that we're not dogs, but cats seem to think that we're other cats who just sort of suck at catting.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:50 PM EDT] <judyward> 'Night Jerusha! Have a good week!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:51 PM EDT] <Laurna> Good Night Jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Night, jerusha!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:30:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> Night, Jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:03 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Nite Jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:04 PM EDT] <bynw> night jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:10 PM EDT] <jerusha> Nighters!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:15 PM EDT] <jemler> n8ite jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hence, they bring us "food" because that's what cats do; they hunt for the older or sick or pregnant/nursing members of their cat colony.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:28 PM EDT] <bynw> yeah dogs know that people are a different type of creature while cats just think we are stupid cats
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:29 PM EDT] <KK> Mine left dead rats on the step just outside the cat flap. Never, ever brought dead rats in;to the house. That we know, anyway.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:38 PM EDT] <Shiral> We suck at catting, and we're the weirdest looking cats they've ever seen, too
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:46 PM EDT] <The_Bee> bye jerusha
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:52 PM EDT] <KK> Nighters, Jerusha.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:31:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup. And we're so weird we even get in water voluntarily. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:32:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> We have NO idea how to clean ourselves properly. And our purring attempts are just sad
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:32:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> The caats are trying to teach us--their kittens--to hunt.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:32:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:32:52 PM EDT] <judyward> We must be very dumb to them. But they love us and keep hoping.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:32:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although Carys seems to think I can meow decently. We have conversations sometimes.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> And instead, we shriek, and then clean up their offerings.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:03 PM EDT] <Derynifank> But we just never semester to catch on
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:12 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Seem
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:33 PM EDT] <Laurna> My cat brings home baby squirrels and gives them to the dogs. so that I can yell at the dogs to get them to give it too me. I think my cat does this on purposes to get the dogs in trouble.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> I have conversations with both of mine. They look at me as if to say "It was a perfectly clear question, so why did you say THAT?"
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, I wouldn't doubt it. There have been quite a few cat practical jokers!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:33:52 PM EDT] <judyward> Does she bring them alive?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:34:32 PM EDT] <Laurna> yes not even a bit or a scratch on them untill the dogs get them.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:34:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Shiral, I've seen a thing online about humans meow total nonsense to cats, so they're like, "What? Tax returns? What are you talking about?"
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:34:52 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Cats love plotting to get dogs in trouble
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:35:03 PM EDT] <judyward> Probably. After all, they already think we are mentally handicapped.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:35:05 PM EDT] <Laurna> Oh yes my kitty does that
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:35:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys doesn't have time for that. She's ready to beat the daylights out of any dog who comes near.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:37:30 PM EDT] <Laurna> I was thinking of my usuall typo to mix up the words Squirrels and Squires. makes me laught to think of kitty bringing home squires.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:37:47 PM EDT] <Shiral> Nigel would be surprised
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:37:55 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:37:58 PM EDT] <jemler> or squirts
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:38:19 PM EDT] <judyward> Cats would keep a squire jumping.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:38:31 PM EDT] <judyward> Kind of like Nigel.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:38:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> That's either a very big cat, or one of Evie's littles dressed as a squire
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:38:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That makes me laugh, because there's an SCA joke about "Stupid Squire Tricks."
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:39:10 PM EDT] <Laurna> That must be it. Shiral. lol
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:39:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (copious amounts of alcohol generally involved in said tricks.)
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:40:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'll bet Kelric Alain will be one of Nigel's headaches when he's old enough to be in Royal service
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:40:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Nigel may opt to retire about then. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:40:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I saw a thing about McGonagall reacting to the birth of Harry and Ginny's oldest child by marking the 31st of August of the year that child would start at Hogwarts as her retirement date. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:40:54 PM EDT] <judyward> Maybe but he'll be very polite about his pranks. He'll be like his dad was with Richard.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:40:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Who'd ssucceed Nigel?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:41:06 PM EDT] <KK> brb
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:41:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Payne or Rory?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:41:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> Rory's busy as the Mearan Viceroy, so probably Payne
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:41:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or maybe someone a little older than them but younger than Nigel. Heck, Dhugal might do a fair job of it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:08 PM EDT] <judyward> Dougal might teach them stuff they don't need to know!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:15 PM EDT] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Nah. He'd probably have mellowed by then. :D
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:39 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Dhugals is the right age, but would he be less rigid than Nigel?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> OR.....stuff they DO need to know, but which is not part of a conventional Page's training
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:41 PM EDT] <judyward> At least there won't be as many problems with being Deryni.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:48 PM EDT] <jemler> who was Conal son, again?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:49 PM EDT] <Laurna> Like how to NOT deliver a plate of pheasants to the king.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although since he's a leftie, he might need someone else to teach all the right-handed fighting!
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:42:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Albin
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:43:04 PM EDT] <jemler> right
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:43:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> albin. He'll be too yooung for a good while.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:43:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Dhugal is even busier trying to manage Cassandra not to mention Transha and those rowdy borderederstwhile
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:43:45 PM EDT] <jemler> but isn't he nigels heir, as oldest son of the oldest son?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:43:49 PM EDT] <Shiral> He's the Duke of Cassandra, but drives her mad when he won't believe her predictions
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:44:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Nigel's also a duke, though I'm blanking at the moment on the name of his duchy.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:44:18 PM EDT] <jemler> carthane
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:44:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Carthmoor?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:44:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> Carthmoor, that's it
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:44:47 PM EDT] <jemler> right, from mooryn
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:44:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Albin was out of the succession for a while, because Nigel was so (justifiably) angry over Conall's treachery, but IIRC, at the end of KKB, Kelson got Nigel and Rothana to change their minds about Albin automatically joining the church.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> He and Alaric have neighboring Duchies
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:18 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Weren't Carthmoor and Ccorwyn once parts of ancient Mooryn?
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:26 PM EDT] <Laurna> Yes
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:27 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That'-s it.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:29 PM EDT] <jemler> yes
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> So Albin would be the next Duke of Carthmoor, but he'd be a bit young to take over the "in charge of squires and pages" job, I'd think.
[Sunday, October 21, 2018] [8:45:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> And then Kelson gave the Duchy of Ratharkin to Rory. Payne will get Travulm

Darcy is trying to figure out a wife (having her also as his squire is not helping); now he has a younger cousin he's only heard of a couple of times to figure out.  No challenges here!   ;D

Thanks to all of you for the welcome. I hope I can contribute  to the fun and excitement  of the game. I can see Fiona having interesting  adventures  and providing a challenge to Iain and Darcy. Iain says this is just what he needs, another problem.

The Childe Morgan / Re: Women holding titles in their own right.
« Last post by whitelaughter on October 21, 2018, 08:52:45 am »
A good rule of thumb RW is that a monarchy or republic will allow women to have titles, but an empire will not.  So I'd expect women to have titles during the era of Camber, but lose those rights as Gwynedd and Torenth gobbled up the other kingdoms.
