We Miss You!
Most of our members are those who are pulling a military tour or English teachers on limited contracts. Their time with us is short and, therefore, precious. The Barony even has an award to recognize those who are about to leave its borders - the Empty Shell. Here are some of the Stronghold's Empty Shells.
