Calontir to Sponsor Largesse Competition at Lilies War

A Largesse Competition will be held at Lilies War with the goal of recognizing the skill of the craftsmen of Calontir and providing Their Majesties with regalia and gifts for Their reign. In a message to the Calontir list, Berenguerra Fineya, known as Fina, writes:

Largesse Competition

The Shire of Deodar is sponsoring a Largesse Competition to be held at Lilies War this year, with all entries becoming the property of their Majesties Calontir. Prizes will be awarded in 3 categories, Kingdom Gifts, Crown Gifts, & Order Medallions. Participants are asked to contact our competition co-coordinator to ensure there are no duplications. (Why you ask would we do that? Imagine Their Majesties joy at transporting home from Lilies 57 large chairs because three different groups made 19 each. Such generosity is not unheard of in Calontir!) (We would encourage all who are interested in entering the competition to keep in mind the big three of largesse, all things should be portable, non-breakable, and non-perishable.) Our experience as the largesse factory of the kingdom has taught us the value of working in groups and we would encourage y'all to consider doing the same.

Order Medallions

Order Medallion entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  1. Appropriateness
  2. Workmanship
  3. Overall Quality
  4. Creativity

This can be one or several of any one medallion. The medallions could also be made for our friends to the south as well as the west if you so desire. (Ansteorra and Outlands). There is no need to contact in advance about these, make as many as you like.

Kingdom Gifts

Kingdom Gifts are to be given to other Kingdoms, North Shield and our Royalty. There needs to be 19 of each item made for this category. Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  1. Appropriateness
  2. Workmanship
  3. Overall Quality
  4. Creativity
  5. Usefulness

Crown Gifts

Crown Gifts are gifts that Their Majesties will use during their reign, mainly in Kingdom. So this would be the competition for those that want to produce one (or more) cool item(s). Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  1. Appropriateness
  2. Workmanship
  3. Overall Quality
  4. Creativity
  5. Usefulness

Please contact Berenguerra Fineya, known as Fina, if you have any questions or would like to receive some possible suggestions of largesse items their majesties would appreciate. Again we urge you to let us know if there is an item you are planning to make, so that we can encourage others to try their hands at something else. (I'm having nightmares that I must explain 200 sewing kits and how this competition seemed like such a good idea at the time to Valens & Susannah)
