A&S Baronial Championship Competition

The time has come for a new A&S Champion of Carraig Ban to be chosen.  If you wish to participate, but not compete for Champion, you may enter any of the three challenges.  Only competitors for Champion must participate in all three challenges.

  1. Create a weapon to kill Baldur.  In keeping with our Barony’s love of silliness, the weapon must incorporate mistletoe.  Examples include but are not limited to; an ode to mistletoe; a hairpin decorated with mistletoe; a dagger with mistletoe on the hilt. Anything connected to mistletoe.
  2. Once poor Baldur has succumbed to his mistletoe wound, he must stay in Hel until Ragnarok.  Your challenge is to give him something to do.  This is the only challenge that must include some form of documentation. 
  3. Let’s share our love of beauty with their Royal Highnesses by contributing to their coffers.  Create a dozen small tokens (hankies, rings, beads, etc) to donate as largess.

If you have any questions, concerns, or need help with an idea or entry, please let me know!  We would love to see all the beautiful things!

Artisans Green

Space will be provided for an A&S salon with shade, seating, and tables. Hang with fellow artisans, and show off your craft. Learn from each other, and enjoy the view of the events around you.
