StormMaker Tournament

Ivon and Hlutwige, Lord and Lady Stromgard herewith invite all artisans to vie for the honour of being named their StormMaker, Champion of the Arts and Sciences of the Barony of Stromgard at Founding Revel, February 7 (2015) in the Barony of Stromgard (Clark and Skamania Cos, WA). Those wishing to compete for this title must submit a Letter of Intent to Their Excellencies no later than An Tir’s 12th Night (2015).

General Expectations of Champions;
Champions must swear fealty to the Coronet.
Champions will serve for one year. Requirements and acceptability are set by the Coronet.
The champion is expected to protect the Coronet and members of the populace at events.
The champion is responsible for working with the Steward of the champion’s event to arrange for the tournament to choose his or her successor. The format of the tournament should be approved by the Coronet.
The champion should strive to encourage participation within the Barony in their field.
The Champion may display the regalia of their position.

Each competitor will be required to research and document two (2) complete and distinct entries plus an entry to be created on site the day of the tournament (see “Mystery Box” below).
Competitors will be required to make a fire using flint and steel. We recommend competitors procure a set of flint and steel with which to practice prior to the tournament. A place for competitors to make their fire, various tinders, wood and charcoal will be provided. (page 82)

Now, there is the matter of the third entry;

Competitors are allowed to have one person who will serve as advisor/assistant/helper. Each competitor will be given a “Mystery Box” filled with various items (all Mystery Boxes will have identical contents). The competitor and their advisor will have 10 minutes to work out a plan for the entry based on the contents of the Mystery Box. There will be at least six areas from the arts and sciences to choose from. Once competitors have made a decision, they and their advisors will visit the “sideboard” for five minutes. Competitors and their advisor may trade item for item from the Mystery Box to the sideboard for needed/wanted items. Competitors may also trade item for item with each other.

Time is up! Competitors and their advisors will have three hours to create the third entry using the items in the Mystery Box and the fire the competitor must build.
If you feel you have what it takes to be Stromgard’s Champion, to be the StormMaker, wear the cloak, display your work, prove your skill; then send your intent to:
