There will be a Largess "Splendid Six" contest - details below:

Greetings, noble & good gentles!

I am pleased to announce that this year at Baron's Ball there shall be held a "Splendid Six" (Dirty Half-Dozen) Largesse Contest in the great Barony of Wastekeep! Please help fill the treasure chests of our noble King and Queen so that they may dispense goodly gifts to Their populace. A portion of the largesse will also go to the Barony of Wastekeep, so that our incoming Baron & Baroness will be able to reward noble deeds
as they see fit.

The rules are simple; make at least 6 (and more is perfectly okay!) of the same or similar items, i.e., six hats, six drinking vessels, six belt pouches, etc. Bring them to Baron's Ball with a short written description of the items, as well as your name, and they will be entered into this populace-choice contest. No documentation is necessary! There will be a cup near each entry so that the populace may vote for their favorites; the winner with the highest votes will be given one item from EACH entry as the prize of their victory. In addition, EVERYBODY who enters will receive a spiffy small token of appreciation. That's right, everybody who enters something will walk away with Something Nice!

Please bring your entries to the Arts & Sciences area by noon at the latest; the populace is heartily invited to vote for their choice (information will be posted at the tables) and voting will be concluded by 4 pm. Any questions? Contact Aerngaldra via email at silverwolffATgmailDOTcom.
