Oops!  Padraic was kind enough to make up .gifs of the Kemrese flag.  If I
have mastered Attchmnts I should have attchd my personal favourite: the

I know I have enough lexicon to translate one of the encounters with the
Fair Family as recorded in the Field Guide to the Little People by Nancy
Arrowsmith.  I was just about to have a go at reconstructing it but it has
occured to me that a fantasy short story that I wrote for a NZ NASFCon
would translate very well into Comroig sentiment.  So maybe I'll start
translating it and feed it to the assemble multitudes.
Kemrese Althistorical Note: It has occured to me that with the creation of
the Federated Kingdoms in 1805 and the death of King Henry of England and
Scotland in 1807 that the current king of Cambria succeded the Stuart
dynasty as the King of the Federated Kingdoms of England, Scotland and
Cambria.  It was a rare occasion in British history as the Princess
Charlotte technically became Queen of England and Scotland and sat beside
her husband King Constantine of Cambria, the only period in Kemrese
history when the court in Castreleon was presided over by a Queen Regnant!

MAN, despite his artistic pretensions, his sophistication, and his many
accomplishments; still owes his existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil
and the fact that it rains.
