Vels, I guess I'm a bit slow, but what is the joke?
Thanks to the Rialto, when I joined the SCA even in Ansteorra 25 years ago, I knew of Pavel.
But I never got to meet him, even though I did get to attend one Lilies War.

To the first point, Gabriel, I would not disagree. To the second, not at all - He is forever in that wall.
Though I have met him more than once (and introduced myself each time, I don't think he ever noticed my joke), I've known him more as the legend than the man.
I will grieve and celebrate his life, nonetheless.
