From TRH Cellach & Vukasin – Tournament of the Arts

A Tournament of the Arts (ToA)

Let it be known to all and sundry that We, the Crown of the Middle Kingdom, being stalwart supporters of the talented craftsfolk who create such magnificent works of art and inspiring acts of science, are minded to create a new forum for the display of the same—namely, a Tournament of the Arts.

Much like the Chivalry and the Defenders of the Kingdom strive to test the mettle of unbelted warriors through their respective tournaments, the Laurels of the Kingdom shall challenge all artisans to assemble and bring their finest work for evaluation, critiques, and admiration.

Understand that this is not a competition; this is a new endeavor to allow Laurels and artisans to connect and discuss their shared passion for the arts.

The TOA is a new platform for artisans to gain word-fame for their research, craftsmanship and ambition. Come and impress Us, our Order of the Laurel and your fellow craftsfolk! (more…)

Late News: Red Dragon Update

Regarding Red Dragon Weatherreddragon50

The current forecast calls for a 35-40% chance of rain from 2:00 to 7:00 PM on Saturday, per Intellicast, Wunderground and The weather forecast has been a serious moving target for the past week, going from dry to deluge and everywhere in between, sometimes on an hourly basis.

We are going with the main outdoor plan at this time. Armored combat, rapier, archery, thrown weapons, and youth combat should plan to be outside as previously discussed at the staff meetings. Marshals: consider adjusting your tournament schedules to get as much in as possible earlier in the day.

Be advised: the ground is wet as we’ve had rain all this week in Columbus. I’ll be at the site this afternoon to check on the various outdoor venues. (Marshals: the site is available from 3:30 to 5:00 PM today if you want to stop by and look at your venues.) (more…)
