Err, what?

lo djacu cu klani li re lo kabri

Read klani a bit more carefully.

Of what? Our patience at decrypting nonsense. As far as I could make out {dracykei} is just {xe draci} and {sibvidru} is a terrible metaphor for "germ of an idea"

What ought to be happening that isn't — or conversely?

Posts were not getting from the mailing list to the forums. It's fixed now. Sorry for all the crap.

Sure, but you have yto know where to look; neither {drayckei} nor {sibvidru} are on the generial lists and role-playing games are so remote from my life (since I played chaturanga and some derivatives in college) that they would not occur to me — until I went to the original site and then looked up {xarpre}. u'u though

I have no idea what a "general list" is in this context, but:

dracykei is my bad; I'll fix it momentarily.
