Please come celebrate the end of another wonderful year in
Wastekeep with our potluck Yule Feast!  We will hold
competitions for Baronial Bardic Champion and Baronial A&S
Champion at this event.


Hours: Doors open 10am, event ends by 6pm


– Bardic Competition: The bardic championship will be a two part
competition. Each contender must perform twice, either a song,
poem, or story. So everyone will do a piece, then a short break
before everyone presents their final piece. Pieces can be period or
period interpretations of contemporary pieces.


– Wastekeep A&S Championship instructions: Fairly simple,
fairly straightforward, single entry, documentation not required
but strongly encouraged, and it must be something that has not been
previously entered for a championship.

A populace choice award will also be offered.

– It Takes Two largesse competition: help us gather largesse to
donate to the Kingdom!  Create two pieces of largesse, labeled
with your name, branch, and Kingdom, and enter your
creations.  Contact Her Grace Stjarna to find out what kinds
of things would most benefit the Kingdom.  hotwings4k
