BFS News for September 25, 2017

posted Sep 25, 2017, 5:54 AM by Forgotten Sea


  • Clarion: "The October issue of The Clarion is dedicated to SCA newcomers in the Barony of Forgotten Sea. Here are some ways you can really help:
    1. Advice - 1-5 Sentences of tried and true advice telling a new person how to thrive in BFS and Calontir and beyond.
    2. Local resources - Where do you go for fabric, equipment, DIY armor, information, etc.?
    3. Kingdom / online resources - What websites would you send a new person to for help with garb, persona development, camping, music etc.?
    This kind of Clarion submission would not need a Creative Works Form.

    As always, The Clarion is always looking for articles. A longer piece of newcomer advice on how to make basic garb, choosing a name, easy period recipes, your SCA journey, - anything really.
    The deadline for submissions is October 10, 2017.
    This kind of Clarion submission would need a Creative Works Release form.
    A photograph needs a Photographer's Release form. Any recognizable face in a photo needs a Model Release form. All forms are available at http://chronicler.calontir.org/under
    I will help to make the paperwork as easy as possible.

    Thank you,
