Arts and Sciences Contest Information:
There will be eight Arts and Sciences Contests at Coronet.

  • His Highness’ Whim – Dress a fighter. Includes both the fighter's armor and garments (overall appearance). His Highness would prefer for the fighter to be there and show off during one of the tournaments, but those who are not able to attend can send in a photo album (hard copy please). The person(s) who did most of the work are the entrants, which means non-fighters are welcome to enter by dressing a victim, er, fighter. Points added for historical accuracy and documentation.

  • Her Highness’ Whim – Best period use of lavender (the flower). Points added for historical documentation.

  • Autocrats’ Whim – Research Papers, Yay! Please include a bibliography and remember to cite your sources.

  • Two Ministry of Arts and Sciences contests: Carved Items and Bookmarks in any mode
