Dirty Dozen Donation Derby]
Dirty Dozen Donation Derby
A competition to encourage the creation of
To Enter: Create 12 items based on a theme,
which can be anything, from 'stuff I made on
Monday nights' to '13th Century Germanic
Ladies Accessories.' The primary rule of
entries is that the items must be tagged* and
ready to be given out as largesse
immediately. This is not an A&S
competition no documentation
necessary! Each entrant will decide where
they are donating the largesse (Kingdom,
Barony, Shire, etc).
Prizes: (Must be present to win)
1. Prize Cache: 1 item from each dozen will
go into a prize cache, and each entrant will
get to choose 1 item at the end of the
tourney! I will draw names from a hat to
determine the order in which people choose
their item. So you will take something home
with you, just for entering!
2. Populace Winner: Entries are voted on in a
bean count, and the winner is the entrant
with the most beans. The populace winner gets
1 item from each of the other competitors!
3. Baron(ess)/Baron(ess) (and Royal) Choice:
Each pair will also get to pick a winner.
Those winners get to choose 1 item from 3
4. Over the Top Award: For anyone who does 6
solo entries (thats 72 items!), you
will receive a commission from a volunteer
Ideas: Intimidated by the idea of creating 12
of something? Grab 11 other people and do a
group entry! Can't think of something to
make? Speak to Royals or your Baron(ess)
about what theyd like for largesse!
Check out the Facebook page
(/groups/520009888022124/) for inspiration!
Also, here is the synopsis (with photos of
entries) from last year:
Host: Lady Birke die Jägerin
*There were a lot of questions about tagging
your items last year. My understanding is
this is not commonly done in the Midrealm,
but is in many other Kingdoms. I encourage
you to add a small tag to each of your items,
with your name and local group on it, so that
those who eventually get your items can know
where they came from. Sometimes Kingdom
largesse is given to other Kingdoms, and it
is often desired to know who made the items.
