War Point Challenge

This year at War of the Wings, the bar has been raised across the boards.
The War Point Challenge can certainly be no different! Each participating
barony is being challenged to field an interdisciplinary team in order to
present to the populace a display inspired by their heraldry!

Display entries must include:


   A representation of the Arts of Peace: Present a piece of clothing that
   has a heraldic representation integrated into it

   A representation of the Arts of War: Present a piece of armor or a
   weapon that has heraldic representation integrated into it

   The banner that flies over the Arts of Peace and War: Present a War
   Banner that represents your barony as a whole

   Each barony that enters the display will declare a side, the side that
   acquires the most points amongst the displayed entries wins the A&S war
   point! Points will be gathered not only by judges from the A&S
   competitions, but by the votes of the populace as they cast their votes for
   their favorite display!

   No documentation is required for entries that are placed on display, the
   only requirement being that the creativity within the barony is unleashed!
   Let's put the Creative into the SCA and make something that future
   generations strive to top!

   The Fancy of Her Highness: Equestrian Barding

   A call to the populace has been made! Her Highness, being fond of all
   things Equestrian, wishes to see the artisans of her Kingdom display their
   fondness as well. This competition is open to all manner of arts from songs
   and poems to barding, research and illumination. Submit your entry with a
   strong emphasis on horses and other beasts of animal husbandry so that we
   might all bring joy to Her Highness!

   The Fancy of Her Highness: The Dogs of War

   Her Highness and Her Excellency Alianor have cried out to let slip the
   dogs of war! During the Heraldic Processional to take place on Saturday
   morning, the best dressed war dog will be selected! So break out the armor
   and barding for your best friend as they march to war in style!

   have something special just for you! Bring in your favorite research paper
   so that we might all learn from the knowledge that you have gathered.

   Documentation is highly encouraged, and extra brownie points will be
   awarded for steps to color your own spun entries using period media.
