Just a reminder of our contest!
Announcement to all Scribes of An Tir...
An informal charter painting contest will be held at July
Coronation this year!
As encouragement to all our scribes to paint more Kingdom Charters,

reign is quickly drawing to a close) to give out to those well
deserving of our populace. Scribes of all skill levels are welcomed
and encouraged to participate. Four certificates of award will be
given, one winner each in a category of beginner, intermediate, and
advanced, and one Crown favorite.
**We are encouraging those entering to bring charters already
completed, as space and supplies to paint will be limited
