Now that fall crown tournament is over, the East Kingdom has heirs!!! Vivat to all
who participated and helped make that event a success. Now, is a good time to
focus on repairing or replacing any worn gear. For the safety of our combatants
and friends, take care of yourself and your kit to maximize your fun. Check your
authorization cards and determine if you will need to reauthorize before your next
foray into the fields. If your card has taken a vacation without you or is illegible,
contact your friendly MOLs to complete the paperwork for a replacement at
