  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.


Lady Cordeilla uxor Alexander has stepped down as event steward for Kris Kinder. We will announce the new event steward in a few days.

    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 a deputy 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.

    From Her Excellency, Countess Ylva Jonsdottir, Baronial Arts & Sciences Minister -  
This Wednesday, 9/4/19, Beginning Jewelry Making II class at 6:30 PM, on the patio at the northeast corner of the Community Center where fighter practice is held.  See the calendar on the BFS website (BFS Calendar) for more information.

  • Now is the time to start your largesse project to be presented at  Crown Tournament in October!
  • Seeking a place to hold a weekend-long repoussé  class. Requirements are space for up to 8 students to sit at tables with room for the instructor to move around them, good lighting, and good ventilation. Electricity and water in the space, or nearby, would be helpful but not required. A basement, garage, or workshop would be best as the metal working is "a bit grubby" and using the bottled acetylene gas is somewhat sooty. Please contact Countess Ylva (ylva@lewis-neff.net) if you have such a space to offer and/or are interested in attending the class. There will be a fee of $40/ person for materials. All tools will be provided, and there will be some for sale. Date is To Be Determined based on availability of space and instructor (Master Grimwulf Harland).
Let Countess Ylva know if you have a class that you would like to teach, something you would like to learn, or questions about any of this Arts & Sciences stuff. (Ylva@lewis-neff.net
