Kingdom Seneschal Deputies sought

posted Jun 5, 2018, 5:20 PM by Forgotten Sea

Unto the Good Gentles of Calontir, greetings.

I would like to begin this missive thanking Master Gunnar Thorisson for his service to this great kingdom as the Kingdom Waiver Secretary for these last 9 years.  This has been a great and needed service.

Master Gunnar has expressed the desire to move on to new challenges and step down as Wavier Secretary.  To this end, I am requesting letters of intent from anyone interested in this job.

Candidates for the position should have good organizational skills and the ability to securely store 16 to 20 totes that contain the waivers.

I am requesting the letters be sent to me no later than Summer Coronation.  This will allow Master Gunnar to begin the transition at CalonCon.

If you have any questions about the job, please contact Master Gunnar. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Also be sure to thank Gunnar for his service.

~Brendan,
Calontir Seneschal

Aston Tor Fighter Practices Resume!

All are invited to the Aston Tor Fighter practice, to watch or participate! Some loaner gear will be on hand. I am hoping to get a decent turnout of newer Fighters wishing more intense training on drills, and more experienced Fighters with an interest in teaching! Please, let us know you’re interested in coming, and share this event with others who might be interested!
