The Chronicler’s primary task is to produce a newsletter for the Barony ensuring that communication flows within the group. Society and the Kingdom require that the Baronial newsletter be produced at least four times per year. In the Barony, the newsletter is currently an on-line publication but remains in printable format. This is one of the positions that must be filled for the Barony to remain a Barony.
You can find very detailed information in the Kingdom and Society documents, including full descriptions of qualifications and obligations and the requirements of the newsletter, even ideas regarding what to include in your letter of application.
