Chaps and chapesses,
Let's discuss this in a few weeks, when we are in person. Before that, I would like to correct some cultural matters.
Within the hold I come from (Borthawr) and in the neighbouring holds in other nations, these holds have kings. It's a Dwarven cultural thing for many Dwarves. I can understand any Dwarf who missed the vote and meeting being perturbed, however, at hearing a chap calling himself the King of the Dwarves. I think I would feel similar.
I have trudged up and down the factions whenever we meet, trying to find Halflings and Dwarves so that the uncommon races like these can actually meet together, with their own. Inevitably some have been missed and I am glad we have found them here. We would be honoured if they would join the Dwarf Meeting at 8pm on the Saturday in the Unicorns at the Moot. We would love to include them in our future feasts, for a start.
I will answer one question here, posed by Daie: Can I ask what it was that prompted this decision to organise the race en masse?
For me the answer is simple, and I am the person who has been doing a lot of the organising for two races. For those unfamiliar with me: I am a Halfling whose adoptive father and family are Dwarves, whose spirit has been declared that of a dwarf by three Dwarf Kings. We are both minority races. There are 22 Halflings that we have so far found that regularly attend court. The numbers are not so much different for Dwarves.
It's hard when you're alone.
We see the comraderie that other races share. We miss that. So we reach out. And sure, we talk about awakenings. But also, we celebrate what it is to be a Dwarf or a Halfling in feast or in drink. Or in my case, both.
In the mean time, if you do happen to know of any Halflings or Dwarves in your faction, I would love to chat with them.
In two weeks. In a camp. Perhaps with some drink.
You will be able to find me in the Dragons. Or the Harts. Or sometimes the Lions, or the Unicorns, or the guilds. Often on the battlefield, sometimes in the bar.
See you then.
