Topping 700 or rank administration

A couple of months ago I wrote an entry on an Edo Period administrative office that referenced another office so I wrote related entry, which then referenced yet another on a samurai rank so I wrote an entry on it and so on. I kept writing entries over the weeks and prepping them to add to the supplement pages.

This week I present 21 new entries, which bring the total of entries in the supplement to over 700, and a little earlier than usual as I'll be in Minneapolis for Schoolgirls and Mobilesuits for the weekend.
