In keeping with this being the

Contest: Historical Record keeping.
Contestants would submit one of their own treasured memories of an
Event in Seagirt’s History recorded in a historical fashion:
Calligraphy, Cuniform tablet, Painting, tapestry, etc. Poems or
songs will be accepted but must also be accompanied by a written

the written version.

Thank you Master Tristan for
