Cripes, haven't checked in here for awhile, and now we have a whole posse. Nice!
I'm still reading everyone's bios to catch up, but my character is essentially unaligned with most politics. As a noble, he's aware of most upper-class spats, but is just dismissive of whatever doesn't immediately concern him. As a result, he might be slightly insensitive to most issues; he's just concerned with the next big discovery.
Crumbs, please take your time! I hope everything has settled down for you.
