Arts and Sciences



Once again it is time for the annual Red Spears Baroinial Arts and Sciences competition. The winner will be decided by populace vote.
Documentation not required, but it may help you get those last few beans.

This will be a populace Bean Count. However, the Bean Count is one factor in determining the A&S Champion. If you are selected by Their Excellencies to be their A&S Champion, you are expected to attend events (in and outside of the Barony), teach classes, and enter A&S displays and competitions.  Stay tuned for details about a face to face "interview" with Their Excellencies for all people whom wish to enter.  This also means you can perform a Bardic piece at that time for them if that is what you would like to enter.

The current A&S Champion is Lady Artemisia Voltera
