Crimson Sky War:
It is a time of famine with a meager rice crop throughout the region. After the Harvest, three monks divided the rice between their temples to ensure the grain was evenly distributed for the people.

Distrust is common amongst the overlords of the region. Each is convinced that their neighbors received more rice in their temple than they did. Whether through greed or wanting to ensure that their people have enough to make it through the winter they set guards at their own temple and send their troops to gather the bags of rice from the other two…

The war lasts about 1 hour with a 30 min break.
There will be three teams chosen at random by team captains. The team with the most bags of grain at the end of the hour wins. Angus will explain all the rules and history when all the fighters have assembled it's easier that way than listing them beforehand.

Two-man Tourney:
Double elimination
Any authorized heavy fighter can enter
Any tourney weapon style is excepted
Teams are by fighter's choice with the only stipulation that no two knights can be on the same team....a knight and squire team is fine.

Arts and Science:
A&S non-competition.
Curious about how an Arts & Sciences competition works? This is only for those who have never before entered an Arts and Sciences competition. All of the entries will get constructive feedback from the judges. The scoring sheets will be just like those used in an Arts & Sciences competition. This is an all ages and all skill levels event. I encourage our crafters of every age and level to enter.

The prize (a treasure chest of crafters suppliers) will be given to the entrant whose name is randomly pulled out of a hat.

This is NOT a competition!

Arts & Science Competition:

This is an A&S Competition designed for anyone who’s never won an Arts & Sciences competition.

The Barony of Terra Pomaria relies on the generosity of the populace for the prizes and gifts given by our Baron and Baroness.
