The Elders are pretty actively recruiting right now. Recently, I regularly visit different areas and post a recruitment message. And I have to say, Galtrev is my favourite as most evenings I get responses from people, always friendly and usually making me laugh - and making recruitment (a bit dull!) actually quite fun. But tonight's was priceless and so I captured the chat for your entertainment.
