Directions: (omitted)


The Royal Society of Western Citizens for the Preservation of Shastan Fighting Techniques is alive and well. At June Crown we will be holding a very unusual drinking contest. Non-alcoholic and with surprise rules.

Since it is within our charter to also record fables "Shastan" experiences, if you were there and wish to tell of the happening (ex: The Shastan forte at Pennsic, fighting hornets instead of other fighters) please write or farspeak with Kyna of Wolfhaven (contact info omitted).

Shastan stories, cartoons and jokes will be combined into a volume for sale.
