    A message from Lord Aed Mac Cormaic ua Feidlimid, Baronial Seneschal - 
Good gentles of Forgotten Sea, it is an unfortunate truth that the mundane world must intrude itself upon the dream. My mundane job is changing in ways that is going to leave me with very little time or energy to adequately fulfill my duties as Seneschal of this fine Barony.

Therefore, I am looking for a deputy who is willing to take on the job after a reasonable but necessarily brief training period. If you are interested in being seneschal or would like to know more about what the job entails, please email seneschal@bfs-kc.org.

    BFS Fighter School - 
From His Excellency, Logan goði: The unofficial BFS fighter school will be continuing all summer. You can find more information about it here: https://sites.google.com/view/bfsfighterschool
    Deputy Officers -  
We are looking for deputy officers for the Social Media Officer and Archer Marshal. If you have    questions or would like to apply, please email the relevant office, baronage@bfs-kc..org and seneschal@bfs-kc.org.
