Blast From the Past - View From Valehaven June 1990

This one is a doozy. Originally the Realms was led by one man. Eventually he faded away and the Realms organization became more of what it is now. In this View, he voices his displeasure with the direction of the Realms. Also of interest are the maps to the various event sites in common use in those days; before the days of GPS these were necessary. We don't use these sites anymore, but they do still exist. Also, there is a remark about what "charging" is - some things never change. [Thanks to Janna "Iawen" Oakfellow-Pushee for the scans.]


  1. One thing I can appreciate is that Prince Bob/Shannon S does not place exact blame. He specifically states "Our behavior... " thereby indicating "We all are to blame for this, me as well."
    That's something.

  2. I was around back then but I never heard any of this at the time. Much after the fact I heard some rumors along those lines, but never anything direct or concrete. That was because there was no instant communication as we have now with Facebook, email or websites...and the main means of community communication was the postal View...which I was not getting at the time.
