BARONIAL ARTS & SCIENCES CHAMPIONSHIP

Winter can be a time of both celebration and danger for the majority of our time period, at least in most of Europe. The cold, the lack of food, and the necessary proximity to others can all threaten a person’s well-being. For this competition, entrants should present something that can help them survive the winter. This can be a preserved food item, warm clothing or blankets, tools, a somg or other entertainment to celebrate a winter holiday (to keep you from killing your companions), or any other thing that can be justifies as related to surviving the winter. Minimum documentation id a 3x5 card and must include why the entry is relevant to the competition. Participants can enter on earnest to serve as the new Baronial Champion or for fun. If you have any questions, please email Lady Joan Mysenden.
