Meeting Minutes: 4-Oct-52

  • Thorin: There were many new fighters tonight, and not enough armor to outfit them. If you have a spare kit, or if you’re not planning on fighting at meeting, please bring your armor to loan to the new fighters. If you have armor you’re not using at all, please consider donating it to the Iron Key for newcomers to borrow.
