[ANS] Castellan

Come one and all to test your skills in all fields. Do you have the overall skill to become the Castellan of
Northkeep? 

You must prevail over all other Castellan competitors in at least 3 of our events, only 2 of which can be martial.  Come fight in our chivalric tournament where your ability to kill your opponent quickly and your endurance will be tested.  Our rapier marshal has devised a tournament that will be enjoyed by all. Our A&S competition uses the Kingdom judging forms, so at least minimal documentation covering where, when, how will be required. This does not need to be a research paper, however those are welcome also since there is a category for them.

There will be a separate area provided for the performers who wish to compete in A&S.  We do encourage all to come and show off their wonderful skills. The bardic competition will be held on Saturday this year and not Friday.  It will start at 2PM and allowances will be made to ensure people competing in other events have an opportunity to perform.  Remember that, for the finals, the top three will be given an hour to compose an original piece on a theme provided at the competition. 

A thrown weapons competiton and an archery competition will take place as well. Northkeep has chosen to take up the gauntlet thrown down by HE Sir Jean Paul and hold a combat archery competition too. 

Children's activities will take place throughout the day so bring the whole family and enjoy the event. There is a children's A&S competition. No documentation is required for that event, but it is encouraged.

A feast will be provided by Dona Teresa Maria Giovoni.  If you have had the opportunity to partake of her feasts in the past you know this means that the food will be wonderful.  If you have not, then now is your chance.

Event stewards,
