Interesting little news item at that location, that relates to recent 
discussions of player-governance and such:

       I am Sir Crasty, co-guildmaster of the Plebians. Many have seen us

       King! I know there are some problems with this proposal, but with

would-be revolt turns out, and how the staff chooses to react to it (if at
