Talan's shop was broken into between Saturday night & today. He lost all of his tools - a Stanley four drawer tool box full of all of the tools that he needs in order to do his job. Hundreds of dollars worth of sockets, hand tools, and everything under the sun is GONE.
To make this even worse, the idiots grabbed the armour bag also.
Talan has very very distinctive armour. His face helm gets quite a few comments wherever he goes. It has a tongue sticking out that is pierced. The arms & legs are splinted and very nicely done. The kidney belt is a large leather piece that is banded with plates & has half moon shapes & a small shield on the back. The belt is studded with little rivets all along the outside edge. Everything (and I mean everything) was taken. This is a custom set of armour that would cost someone thousands of dollars to replace.
While I do not suspect that someone within society took the armour, I can't help thinking that it may show up either at an event or on eBay.
Also, I have pictures of his armour if anyone would like to see them.
If you have any information about this armor, please contact Kali at GypsyJade@UReach.com
Please forward this on to every SCA list on which you are a member. I really want to get the word out there.
