This episode of CStM we chat a bit more about the goodies we’ve been doing with the Yule Festival and the hunt for the elven snow globe. Goldenstar rants a bit about repair costs and skirmishes. Not to fear, although she is very upset and swears she won’t skirmish again she has done some even since the recording.
