    Should be easy enough. We don't even need the shop for that.
    I too have an initiate. Danny, 18 years old I believe, or very close to it. He seems very interested in wolf pack and has made an active effort to show up to any kind of random event we've told him about. Once ryan has a consistant suit I'd like to see if we can get danny up and going for autumn war.

    So last night at practice, I may have two new possible initiates they will be at my place on Tuesday evening to get help with armor. if you would like to show up say hello and help out that would be cool. We will be starting about five.

    We've got a number of unfinished elbows cut out in the Black Company Loaner Box. Jamie also showed me a design for vambraces that I can take and modify slightly so that one wouldn't require buckles to hold them on.

    Durin offered to let me borrow his/Karl's armored gambeson. If that offer still stands, I'd loan my lamellar to anyone that it fits. I'd like to do a minor upgrade first is all. (Cut out the reinforced leather strips, para-cord, and attach the metal rings to replace the current method of pulling the suit tight.)

    Then, really, the only thing we need to think about is gauntlets. Ideally a few of us would become proud owners of aluminum/leather/plastic full gauntlets. Then our current hockey gloves can be passed down instead of us buying more.

    I like hockey glooves.
    Rose has asked me to make clear to all that the shop is open at all times. A little fore warning that your coming is nice even if it's only 30 minutes of warning. we want to see initiates in loaner gear and you don't have to wait for Charles or Durin to be home to do it, as long as you know what your doing with the tools.

    We've allbeen talking for a long time about the Iron pig loaner gear. We are producing armor faster now, but in order to accomplish our goal we need to produce armor FASTER than we recruit. Who is available to comeand work on this during the week?

    I think we should each submit a quick list of what we need done for armour. Then we can, all together, bang out work for one another.

    ie, Charles needs... uhm, a new hole in his head. So all of us as a group get together and drill him one.

    I need full gauntlets. So Everyone would work together to finish them for me in record time. =D

    In this way, we would finish all of our most important tasks quickly. Then I believe we would all be more motivated to put forth our valuable time towards loaner gear once our own priorities have been taken care of.

    This weekend I am making a new gorget. Which means I will have

    An extra gorget.
    Mild steel shoulders
    Aluminum shoulders
    1 mild steel elbow
    2 elbow pads
    Various extra tabbards

    Unfortunately, that's all the loaner gear I haven't given out already.

    Well our belief that we had plenty of loaner gear just go tshot to shit. Theres plenty of unfinished work, but most of it was knees and shoulders. We still need a massive quantity of elbows, not to mention helmets.

    And all of this due to this. Our Current initiate list stands as:

    1. Ryan Initiation: highland games
    2. Alanna (both fighter and support) Initiation: banner war
    3. Daniel Initiation: Antir-West war
    4. Jamie Initiation: mid july
    5. Nathan Initiation: Mid July (2010)
    6. Amanda (I think. She did vocalize an intrest in being a part of us, so if she wants I would argue that her initiation has started.)Initiation: August 28th
    7. Lee initiation: April 17th
    8. Isaiah (sorry if its spelled wrong) initiation: Aug 28th
    9. Derfel Initiation: Mid July (2010)
    10. Tim Initiation: Aug 28th
    11. Derek Initiation Aug 28th
    12. Alan Iniiation Aug 28th
    13. Britanany (as support I believe) Initiation: Aug 28th
    14. Morgan Initiation: Aug 28th

    14 initiates and 7 Members... for the first time in company history the members are outnumbered. In the last 3 months we've managed to triple our number. For those who weren't around to hear it, I had stated a goal to double our number by next year. Sold us short I guess... Smile

    personal opinion i think it should be when they show up to a event past the time they say yes i want to be a member because of the fact it show some level of commitment to the group.

    I feel that if they show up shortly after saying "Yes I want to be in the black company" Then thier date should be when they stated that. However, if they dont show, then the date doesnt qualify.

    We were thinking of having a bit of an unofficial group gathering this coming saturday. Charles wants to game, I want to do some spear drills. That wouldn't be a bad time to meet the guy, if you can come down.
