I shall remove myself from this discussion as I feel that it will only become yet another discussion blaming others and enraging people.
Bright blessings to all.

Ryn, diplomat is not another word for messenger. Your not-so-subtle implications that Clara is in any way responsible for this are completely unfair. It has never been her job to go and tell everyone about the news from other factions and groups, if it were she would never have time to eat or sleep. If it's that important, those factions and groups should take responsibility for themselves and track down the individuals they wish to speak to. Anything Clara does in addition to this is a courtesy, not a requirement.

- Clara is surprised people didn't know about this meeting. This is completely a reasonable reaction.
- Clearly there are people who really didn't know about this meeting, including some dwarves, and not just in this faction.
- Rynthalion said he had no interest in going to a meeting and would let the diplomats do it and find out later what went on.
- Diplomats really should relay information to someone about the meetings they attend, otherwise they aren't really representing the crowns and the faction, just themselves. This doesn't make them a messenger, it makes them a diplomat.
- Rynthalion doesn't seem particularly accusatory to me, but the written word is famously bad at conveying emotional meaning.
- This makes it hellish for scholars to wring meaning and intent from ancient texts.
- It is commendable to defend your friends when you believe them maligned.
- Pebble suggested discussing this in person and that's a brilliant idea because intent is less difficult to interpret.
- I like doing summaries.

Hello Lions
Arguments aside, I wanted to ask how many Dwarves do you normally expect at these big get togethers? I recently finished training at the Dun Galdoon fortress so I will be coming along with King Ragnar and the other campaign Dwarves to my first Moot! I wanted to come visiting as many of the factions as I can and to meet more Dwarves but I will be sure to visit the Lions when I can as the hosting faction!
I look forward to meeting you all.

Clara, Thank you so much for your words, they are very much apreciated. We will see if those that have been so vocal on this ley are quite so vocal in person.

I will seek you out for a drink over the moot and I would be honoured if you would be one of my invited guests at our meeting on the Saturday evening.

Grizwald, about half a dozen of us that I'm aware of, but you know how new and interesting people can leap out of the woodwork at any time...

Johan, thank you. Indeed I know what you mean. I look forward to meeting you all.

With just over a week to go until the Moot preparations are well under way, see you then.
