Order of the Silver Gryphon, Meeting Minutes for Restday, day 27 of the month Lumnea in the year 5104.

Members in attendance: Sir Cryheart, Sir Eahlstan, Falicor, Guarrin, Sir Kinshack, Metadi, Shirkon, Sir Yarx, Dame Yviara

Squires in attendance: Tagari

I. Squire Issues:

Guarrin's squire, Brandare, has seemingly disappeared with no word of his absence. Any information regarding his absence is appreciated, as we are concerned for his safety.

Tagari's back. Yay!

II. Chivalry Seminars

Tentative plan to hold a lecture on Honor at nine elven on Restday, day 18 of Koaratos (07-18-5104). Shirkon will direct this lecture.

An informal meeting will be held next Tilamaires (Tuesday 07-06) at nine Elven in the holding to discuss the lecture. This meeting is voluntary, so please only feel compelled to attend if you wish to be a part of the lecture.

Start brainstorming for other topics in the meantime. We've already heard largess, humility, self-control, valor. Keep the ideas coming!

III. Combat Leadership Task Force

Guarrin requests completed combat profiles (sent to as soon as possible. We have collected profiles from the following people Cryheart, Deavon, Eahlstan, Guarrin, Kinshack, Metadi, Shallimar, Shirkon, Xanith, Yviara

People on the task force will be asked to sort through the profile information and offer their perspective.

Guarrin has requested that people place on their profile whether they use ambushing or multi-opponent attack at all (or not).

Cryheart suggested exploring combat movement and side-by-side combat maneuvers (when available) to facilitate better group fighting practices and see how they work to support our tactics.

IV. Joining the Town Hall Organization

It's becoming clear that Forgemaster Mikos has obligations elsewhere and Kinshack put forth the suggestion to reconsider our prior decision to remain apart from the organization.

There are a number of doubts about making the transition, so to answer all our questions before making a motion on this business, we're going to try to get a meeting scheduled with Mitra, who will be in charge of the transition. Kinshack will follow up with more information regarding when we will be able to meet with Mitra as soon as I hear from her.

V. Solhaven Pageant

The pageant for the Turamzyrrian Empire will be held this week, from the first of Koaratos to the third of Koaratos. The 'aristocracy' of the empire may be represented there, so all members with an interest in the Empire are encouraged to be in attendance in full court attire. There are some thoughts that the Emperor himself may even be there.

VI. Trouble in Solhaven Update

Lady Darva has fled to the Landing to escape the headaches that have recently been plaguing people there.

Kinshack presented a letter he submitted to the Earl Jovery and Baron Malwind requesting support. You can review the letter here:

Next meeting will be in two weeks, 5104-07-11.
