Thanks, I plan on seeing lots of people at the meeting Tuesday night.
Don't have much in the way of costuming, or "Garb" as it's called in my main hobby -- the SCA, for this game, but I shall be working on that as soon as I finish a project currently on my workshop list.
Thank you for the kind welcome, it was most apprecated! Yes, I do know Lauren. She is a dear friend of mine. I sent her an invitation for The Steampunk Empire, so that she could join me on this adventure.
