A Group for the UK's Burning Wheel, Burning Empires and Mouse Guard players and GMs. Why not make life easier for ourselves to organize games and get-togethers?
(Blighty is an English slang term for Britain, deriving from the Hindustani word vilāyatī (विलायती) (pronounced bilāti in many Indian dialects and languages) meaning "foreign" which itself is derived from the Arabic word wilayat, meaning a kingdom or ministry.
The term was more common in the latter days of the British Raj, but can now be considered self-consciously archaic and, when used by some speakers younger than the dissolution of the British Empire, can be intended slightly ironically. It is more commonly used as a term of endearment by the expatriate British community, or those on holiday to refer to home.) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blighty)Last Activity: 01-03-2017 07:07 AM
