Kingdom A&S/Bardic Championship

March 06, 2015 to March 08, 2015
Dragon's Laire

Kitsap & N Mason Counties, WA

Autocrat: Adelheide Leeawin device6474OP

Greetings unto the Populace of the Sable Lion of An-Tir. The Mighty Barony of Dragon’s Laire would like to invite you all to join us in beautiful Bremerton WA, the heart of An-Tir, to stand witness to the competition that will decide the new Kingdom Arts and Sciences and Bardic Champions of An Tir. These competitions are set to take place on March 6th, 7th, and 8th 2015 at the Baymont Inn and Suites. Room reservations are open now with room rates for a double queen beds starting at $85. Please contact the Baymont Inn at 1-360-377-7666 to reserve your room, and please use the phrase “Kingdom Arts and Sciences” as part of your reservation!


For information about either the Arts and Sciences or Bardic Championships please contact the Kingdom Art and Science Minister Magistra Tuirrean dal gCais at  Letters of intent and research paper entries are due by midnight 10 January 2015 (12th Night).  Information about letters of intent, the entry requirements, deadlines, and competition criteria can be found on Dragon’s Laire event website.



A tournament of arms will be held for fighters who would like to show their interest in the arts and sciences as well as their prowess on the field. Each fighter who would like to enter the lists must submit a handmade item primarily made by the entrant, the A&S submissions will become the prizes for the tournament.  Since each fighter will bring a prize all participants will leave with something.

The overall winner of the tournament will have first pick of the prizes and the second pick will go to the fighter whose item was chosen first continuing until all the prizes are gone.

The prize table will be displayed for all at the event to see what the fighters of An Tir have been working on. Please note any reasonable attempt at a handmade item will be accepted as we would like as many people to participate as possible. Documentation is not necessary, in fact your item does not need to be strictly medieval for example a raw hide wrapped rattan sword would be a fantastic entry. However store bought items or submissions that the fighter did not have any part of making will not be accepted.
