Greetings from Master Grim

Greetings All

I have just taken the position of Deputy Cockatrice editor, and I am looking forward to getting the wonderful articles submitted to The Cockatrice up on this blog for you all to see.

Also keen to hear about all the great A&S activities and events from around the Kingdom, pics of things you are working on, things you are researching, or any A&S related stuff that might be of interest to others in the Kingdom.  If you email editor.cockatrice.lochac.sca.org with the subject ‘Blog Content’, it will be given full consideration.

Yours in Service
Master Grim of Thornby

AND the results of the Cockatrice survey! (To summarise: we’re mostly good, but a lot of people want a blog/webpage format and a lot of people feel their work isn’t welcome in the publication. I’ll be looking into dual publication options and ways to build a more welcoming culture for contributors.)

Check it out! Cockatrice AS 53 – August
