"The Spoils of War"


In the spring when the first crops are ready and travel is easier, the first markets would open and those that had reaped from bloodier fields the year past would look to sell their wares.
- Create an item that would have been taken from the battlefield. 
- Showing said item came from a specific battle field is encouraged.

Documentation required, but as a simple note. 
What is the thing
Where is the thing from (country or culture of origin)

When is the thing from
Preferably written on something that can be presented alongside the thing for the thing should take center stage.

Bardic - 


The cold cruel winter had set many shivering knaves to the comfort of warmer more sensitive friends and in honour of those friends i would ask any and all who would take the mantle of Bardic Champion from me, win it with yer best sheep.

A sheep in any media, be it song, story or romantic prose.

I look foward to hearing all of ewe.
