Fine  -  I agree with that.

Well, instead of giving one person the whole world, why not give people a
fraction of the map, divide it into a grid, and let people put their name
down for a grid reference, or more if they feel they can handle it.  I think
that we should be able to get this done quickly, though, so if people put
their name down for multiple grids they had better be sure of being able to
meet the deadline - and getting it taken off them if they don't meet it.

Also, if Beregar is breaking his back to get the weather done, we need to
make sure that the region fits the climate!  This could all be beaten out in
IRC sometime.

Well, It has to be either after 1800 GMT if I'm going to be able to be
there, unless someone just wants to send me the transcripts!  Apart from
that, Wed is fine with me.

Well, OK, I thought these had already been done.  If this is the case, do
you want to leave the life/death/heaven things until the regions and races
have been done, whereupon all the Gods will write their descriptions and
plug a bit about heaven into them?  Okeydoke?

Races-wise, there are still 2 unassigned and the ones that are assigned are
dropping short of target.  Do the people who are doing them still want them?
If these are now priorities (as they probably should be), then we need to
get these all assigned and done!  I recall Yorkaturr got most of the Dwarf
stuff done, what's happening here now?  Also, Jormap has been a month
without progress on the Trolls (he was 3 weeks out at status report 4) and I
think he should post what he's done and let someone else take over.

No-one seems to want to do Orcs & Humans, why?  I thought Yorkaturr was the
Orc's god, what's going on there?

Sorry if the last bit was a bit whiney - I just want to get stuff done, and
people appear to just put their names down for stuff and then not do them.
Sorry if you have been working and I just don't know about it.
