Stories tell of heated words this past
fall in the Court of King Cedric, at Baron’s
Ball.  Witnesses
speak of Baroness Araviere of Wealdsmere accusing Baroness
Stjarna of Wastekeep of stealing away her
Baroness Stjarna was heard to say that if the Baroness of
Wealdsmere could not support Her courtiers, that Great
Wastekeep would lend aid to them.  Tempers lit, both Great
Ladies squared off before His Majesty, with strong words
spoken and fur flying.  Even sage advice from His
Grace Duke Gunnar Brunwulf could not stem the brewing
conflict between the two mighty Baronies.


So does Baroness Araviere call to all good An Tirians to
support Her bonds of fealty with Her Sergeantry.  And so does Baroness
Stjarna call to all Her Sergeantry, current and Emeritus, and
all supporters in An Tir, to address Her grievance against
Baroness Araviere.  Thus do both aggrieved
parties meet upon the lands of Lyonsmarche to settle their
differences in an Honor War.

A &S
– One entry
to enter.  You can enter as many entries as you
want.  Please make it something that you have not
entered before in the past.  Please bring your A&S
projects completed or even if it is a work in
progress.  Documentation is a plus.  Displays
are really nice.  If you can give the judges a
little presentation (what is the item, where in period was it
made, when was it made/used in period, it’s development, a
little histoy, how you made it, how they made it in period,
your deviations from period techniques, and why), then that
is a huge


Homebrew Championship

– Again, one entry is all that it takes to enter.  One
bottle per entry.  You may enter as many as you
want.  The judges won’t complain.  Beer, wine,
mead, spirits, etc., etc.  Liquors are welcomed,
but there is a preference for other types of
entries.  Judging criteria will be based upon
established tasting criteria (clarity if applicable,
taste, aroma, etc., etc.)  Documentation is a plus,
especially if you can show it is period.  That will earn
bonus points.  If you have an A&S type
presentation to go with your entry, then that will also
earn bonus


Rapier Championship
