Master William Lawrence (of the metropolitan area of Portland, Oregon, USA) announces formation of the Master's Alliance of Sassy Communes (MASC). The organization has two primary missions:
1) to allow for sharing of information by friendly neighbors in the Portland metropolitan area (including alerts about troublesome flag choppers, a kind of neighborhood watch program);
2) to provide a connection to new players that the landowners collectively bring under our wings, and respectful others who are 'put off' by the abusive tone of global chat.
I am also in the House of Requirement in the Empire, so the new player component of this new organization is in keeping with my participation with the Empire, but you do not need to be in the Empire to join this organization.
Interested players can PM me in the game to be added to the list of approved users in MASC.
