I think that ought to do for the major cast members.

I may generate more as the need arises, but for now, I suggest that in the next couple of days the first paralel will be opened.

Parenthetically it would seem that almost everyone in the eighteenth century was a great lover. Can we say the same of out own times?

I had noticed how it seems everyone was a Great Lover. I also noticed how perfectly in tune with his position #3 Christian de Neuvillette, Colonel of the Gardes Francaises seems. Just the right blend of arogance and polite society, it sounds like, for the commander of such a unit.

I hope two great lovers never end up in the same room together...

I was a little selective as to who got what role. Cyrano de Bergerac was very useful in supplying names for the commanders of the Gallispan forces.

....well (without ANY success, significant or otherwise..) I can say I've always tried to be "a great lover"! :o))))
