Lochmere Investiture: A&S Competition (Plague Edition!)

The Barony of Lochmere calls to the Artisans of Atlantia!  As our populace honors the transition of Their Excellencies Baroness Sarra de Vicenza and Baron Cormacc ua Rigain, to Magistra Letia Thistelthueyt and THL Linhart Von Marburg it is the wish of outgoing and incoming baronage to celebrate those who embrace the Arts and Sciences.

We wish to celebrate the past, the present, and new and freshly started projects; just as we honor and celebrate our outgoing and incoming baronage.  Lochmere’s artisans and all of the Knowne World face a plague and unprecedented time apart, it is understood that not everyone has put their fervor into a chosen craft.  We encourage artisans to showcase past or present projects as their hearts and passion lead them.

The Competition!
You may enter one project: new, past, or in progress. Any Art and/or Science is welcome and encouraged. It may or may not include crabs (see Magistra Letia’s Lochmeri Pride Challenge in the Scoring Section).
