A&S Champion
Greetings to the Populace!

I, Cynehild Cynesigesdohtor, Arts and Science Champion of Eskalya, challenge all artisans and artificers to produce an item for entry into the Medieval Craftsman's Challenge to become the next A&S Champion of Eskalya. The contest is simple, make an item, any item, using as many period techniques and materials as you are comfortable with. Try hand sewing your seams or grinding your own pigments. No one is expecting perfection and we realize that some techniques and materials can't be used owing to their inherent danger. But many materials and techniques are not and can produce better results than their modern equivalents. So make the attempt! (I double dog dare you... :D)

Cynehild Cynesigesdohtor

+ 2 points for Documentation
+ 2 points for dishes from the Court of Venice
+ 4 points for the exotic dishes of the Mongols (Just a reminder that the site is dry)

Tourney for the Baronesses Heavy Champion
The time has come for the Baroness to choose her new Champion. As she has decided to alternate a fighting champion every other year, and this is the year for a Heavy Tourney. This tourney will be double elimination, weapon of your choice. The tourney will be fought indoors (yea!) and on concrete. Please contact the autocrat for any questions.
