Quartermaster Stepping Down

29 Jul

Nordskogen’s Quartermaster, Constanza de Sevilla, will be stepping down from her office, and seeks a candidate to replace her. The quartermaster is responsible for keeping track of the barony’s physical properties, and making sure that what is lent out also comes back. They perform inventories, which are reported to the Exchecquer, and help manage the rental storage unit.

If you’re interested in this highly organized office, submit your letter of intent to the current Quartermaster, their Excellencies, the Exchecquer ASAP!
