Greetings Populace!

I am pleased to announce our upcoming Largesse Challenge to be held at Magna Fair for TRMs Timothy and Ysmay!


What is that you ask? It is a fun competition where you can make or bring 6 (ah ah ahhh!) or more of an item to be donated to the Kingdom for the Crown to be able to give out to newcomers and the populace. These items will be on display for a set amount of time during the day at Magna Faire to allow the populace and the Crown to come by and vote for their favorite! I will be hosting this in a pavilion outside, so please come by and cast your vote!!

There will be 3 prizes given out!! One for populace choice and one for Crown’s choice. The third prize is for the Youth’s category!! We want to encourage the youth in our kingdom to participate in the arts as well!! So this category is anything MADE BY our wonderful children for the largesse coffers! Prizes with be announced closer to the event.

Please do attach a small note to each item including your SCA name, mundane name if comfortable, as well as the size or material content of the item if pertinent. We do want to be able to give credit to the many wonderful artisans in our community!

Thank you so very much for your generosity and helping to refill the Kingdom largesse coffers! All donations are greatly appreciated!

For any questions please feel free to message me.
