  • Roll of Arms: The Rolls of Arms project is up to 69 finished pennants, with more in progress! You can see a list of finished pennants, and on the second tab, those currently in progress, at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sf6XieScF_P_2ZttocKcVADVhi1CPxM9DXTtfdBTPtk/edit?usp=sharing. The goal is to eventually have pennants for all members of the Barony, past and present, but we have a long way to go. If your device had not yet been done, you can request it at https://goo.gl/forms/EKOwEZBzHttUkVBK2. (Both links are also listed at http://bfs-kc.org/about/roll-of-arms)
