This is just a reminder that Quals is coming up.
No major surprises or deviations from the past ones.
I figured I'd put all the information here for quick review.

There are no major changes to the format and the basic layout of how Dragon Master went is what we will be using, see the specifics below.

The dates are per our calendar and have remained unchanged since the beginning of the reign.
19th Sat Kingdom Quals Bright Forge
20th Sun Kingdom Quals Razor Hills

Sign in will be at 12:00 with the cultural tournament beginning at 1:00.

At the time of sign in all entries will be placed in a holding area where they will sit until it is time for you to be judged (with the exception of cooking entries). Please indicate what subcategory you want the item entered under and if you are attempting to Qual please indicate at what level so we can confirm the required number of categories and scores averages, see specifics below. All Items will be presented to the judges and there will be no anonymity. If you prefer you may leave a write up instead just include information we might need to know.

If you are unable to attend the event and still wish to enter, you may appoint somebody to present for you (this could even include them just reading off a typed write up that you have written).


Categories and rules:

CATEGORIES

Cooking
There could be up to 5 judges and entrants will need to provide enough of each entry for all of them to taste. Be prepared to have a way to maintain your own dish until it can be judged (hot/cold). Bring plates, cups and utensils if they will be needed to judge your entry.
• Appetizer: A dish intended to be served as an appetizer.
• Main: Course: A dish intended to be served as a main course.
• Dessert: A dish intended to be served as a dessert.
• Other: A dish or drink* that does not fit into any other category.
*Drinks may not contain alcohol see Vintner below.

Vintner
Spoiler! :
*Crafted: Home brewed, fermented, or otherwise crafted alcoholic beverages fall into this category.
*Mixed: Not home brewed, but utilizing a specific recipe. If the recipe is original to you, please note such details in your presentation.

As these are public parks they may not allow alcohol. So rather then run afoul of the law I’m going to remove this category. If this causes any one undue burden please present to me your case.

Writing
Please include 5 copies of all writing entries.

• Factual: Writing that presents factual information such as a process, event or research of some kind. Examples would be weapon smithing instructions, a recounting of an Amtgard event or a history of the Mongols. When presenting researched information, it is a good idea to cite references and give credit.
• Fictional: Writing that is not intended to be factual such as persona histories and stories.
• Poetry: Poetic verse.
• Publications: Published works such as newsletters, books, collections of articles, etc. These entries are judged on the editorial content only, such as presentation, suitability of the collection, format, etc. It is not necessary that the entrant have written every article. However, articles should never be published without the author's consent and credit should be given. Any work not done by the entrant should be noted.

Bardic

• Singing: A vocal presentation with some expectation of rhythm and pitch.
• Oratory: A vocal presentation with no expectation of rhythm or pitch; i.e. Storytelling, jokes and theatrical pieces.
• Instrumental: A musical presentation performed on an instrument with some expectation of rhythm and pitch.
• Dance: A presentation of bodily movement with some expectation of rhythm.

Art

• 2-D Art: Art intended to be viewed from only one side such as drawings, paintings, stained glass, relief carving, computer graphics, etc.
• 3-D Art: Art intended to be viewed from at least 3 sides such as sculptures, painted miniatures, stuffed animals, blown glass, etc.
People often enter things into this category that would do better in Passive Construction. 3-D art is judged primarily on artistic presentation; Passive Construction is judged primarily on construction. A stained glass box would go into either 3-D Art of Passive Construction depending on what the entrant wanted to focus.

Garb

• Fighting: A major item of garb intended to be worn in battle such as tunics, pants, tabards, shirts, etc.
• Court: A major item of garb not intended to be worn in battle such as dresses, doublets, cloaks, etc.
• Monster: A major item of garb that would qualify as garb for a monster in the Amtgard Rulebook.
• Favor: A garb accessory intended to be worn on one's belt.
• Jewelry: A garb accessory intended to be worn as jewelry such as crowns, coronets, necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc.
• Accessory: A minor item of garb such as hats, belts, shoes, bracers, etc. that would not fit into another category.

Construction

• Passive: Something not intended to go onto the battlefield such as boxes, steel weapons, decorative wooden weapons, stuffed animals, etc. This is a category for constructed items that would not fit into another category.
• Active: Something intended to be used on the battlefield such as ballistae, bows, fighting wands or throwing mugs. This is a generic category for things that would not fit into armor, weapon, or shield construction yet are still intended for rough battlefield use.

• Armor: Something that would qualify as armor by the rulebook standards in Amtgard such as padded armor, gambeson, chainmail, brigantine, greaves, thigh plates, helmets (although they would not actually count as armor), etc.
• Weapon: Something that would qualify as a weapon by the rulebook standards in Amtgard such as sword, spear, arrows, rocks, throwing daggers, madus, etc.
• Shield: Something that would qualify as a shield by rulebook standards in Amtgard.
• Banner: Something intended to be used as a banner and judged on construction and appearance.


Rose/Smith
Anything made for the benefit of the club intended to be donated to the club. These are scored on their construction and design as well as their contribution to Amtgard.


RULES

• Items that have been previously entered into a Crown Quals may not be entered.

• Limit of 3 entries per subcategory.

• The same item cannot be entered in two or more subcategories

• Cooking Entries – Bring all necessary serving utensils including plates and/or bowls.

• Written Entries – All entries, except publications, must be 5 pages or less and 5 copies must be provided.

SCORING SYSTEM
We will be using a 5 point scale. For the required number of entries for your intended office, please check the corpora, but it’s essentially 3, 5, 7, and 10 subcategories based on group size/status. Scores to determine qualification will be based upon an average of the scores with a 3.0 being the required level for qualification. Only top 2 items per subcategory will count toward this. No more than three entries per subcategory will be judged per person.
