It has become widely known within the Barony of the Far West that Palatine Baron Jak is a great patron of the arts. In fact with the advancing of the season from winter to spring he has decided to abdicate so that he may go in search of the one perfect Cherry Blossom. Therefore he wishes to find the greatest philosopher within the barony to replace him.
To find this philosopher he has asked his seneschal to hold a great arts and sciences tournament in which each of the great philosophers and artisans within our barony may enter their best works from five different arts and sciences. The baronial champion of the arts, Bernadette, and the Baron and Baroness will select the very best of the best philosophers by judging this arts and sciences tournament. NOTE: Since this is an A&S Competition, you may enter in absentia.
If you are going to send in an entry, make sure to check the Customs of the Palatine Barony of the Far West for more details.
