Greetings, Grand Adventurers!

I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy during lockdown! Just wanted to let you all know that we will be holding two events in the coming weeks: a TTRPG themed pub social, and a digital attempt at our usual summer social.

The pub social is on Friday, June 26 at 1800 (6pm).

The summer social is on Friday, July 3 at 1900 (7pm).

Both events will be hosted via the GEAS Discord, which you can join with the link below:

For the glory of GEAS!
