Numbers

Lochac's numbers jumped by 17% in the last quarter - 19% in AU and 4% in NZ.

The baronies' numbers are also interesting.
Rowany is again the largest with 150; they have been trading top spot with Aneala for some time now. Aneala and Politarchopolis round out the super-baronies with 141 and 140. Then we have River Haven and Stormhold both over 100, then a large gap to the standard baronies.
So our baronies are fairly evenly split into two distinct sizes: large - 110-150 and standard - 55-75. Make of this what you will.

Marshallate authorisations are generally up a bit too.

Pegasus

Following the changes to the way members can access Pegasus made earlier in the year, and a couple of tweaks since, Pegasus downloads have almost quadrupled meaning the newsletter now ties with the Announce mailing list for our most widely read publication.

We're still waiting to hear who actually won.
