I am sorry about the short notice.

Saturday Nov 15 Bright Forge (Plano)
Sunday Nov 16 King's Point (Hurst)
Plan to bring ways to keep your entries heated or cooled and non-plug-in electronics.

ENTRY ELIGIBILITY
• YOU MUST HAVE A WRITE-UP OF EACH ENTRY. The write up must include materials used; short summary of the process used to create; and you may include any notes about the item you feel may enhance it. Special situations will be considered.

• Deadline to register is 1 pm. Regular registration and item Card turn-ins will be from 12:00pm to 1:00PM on each day. You must have all your items registered and entry write-ups turned in by 1:00PM in order to be judged that day. Judging will begin at 1:10pm.

• No items that have been given awards or have been entered in a previous Dragon Master or Kingdom Quals may be entered.

• Vintners is not an available entry group as the sites are public parks.

• Limit of 3 entries per category.

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

• Written Entries – All entries, except publications, must be 5 pages or less. You must bring 5 copies of all written entries.

• Bardic Entries – Please be considerate with the usage of your time.

SCORING SYSTEM
We will be using the 0-5 point scale. The Judges will be instructed that average items should receive a score or 2.5. I will average the scores from the judges.

CATEGORIES

Cooking
Entries will be judged on taste, texture, appetizing presentation and difficulty. There will be 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.

Writing
Entries will be judged, on form, content, GRAMMAR, SPELLING and usefulness to Amtgard knowledge. With the exception of publications, please limit these entries to 5 pages or less.
• Factual: Writing that presents factual information such as a process, event or research of some kind. Examples would be weaponsmithing 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.

Bardic
Entries will be judged on difficulty and entertainment value.
• 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
Entries will be judged on artistic presentation and the difficulty of the medium.
• 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.
• Jewelry: A garb accessory intended to be worn as jewelry such as crowns, coronets, necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc.

Garb
Entries will be judged on durability, attractiveness, design and difficulty.
• 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 Dor un Avathar X.
• Accessory: A minor item of garb such as hats, belts, shoes, bracers, favors, etc. that would not fit into another category.

Construction
Entries are judged on construction, presentation, difficulty and application to proposed function.
• 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, a weapon or shield entered into this category should not be easy confused with something intended for battlefiled use. As in if a new player saw it on the table, they would not attempt to use it on the field.
• Active: Something intended to be used on the battlefield such as siege weapons, fighting wands, throwing mugs, 'bells' (for ring the bell), castle walls, flags, padded chest (for heavy object battle games, etc. 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, chainmail, brigantine, greaves, thigh plates, helmets, 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 the Kingdom or Amtgard as a whole.

I feel that time to finish an entry is an irrelevant piece of information and shouldn't have any bearing on the items score. Would you consider removing that requirement?

That would go into the Rose / Smith category.

It's primary purpose (I'm assuming) is as something you have created/ crafted for the betterment of the game. If you believe the writing to simply be overwhelmingly beautiful or informative (possibly just incredibly eloquent), then you could try one of the Writing Categories. Without additional information though I would have to stick with Rose / Smith.

If you're going to perform it it'd be the bardic catergory under the singing subcatergory.

Sorry, I had attempted to reply to Lucian then Charter had internet issues the rest of the night.

Sir Brennon
Axident
Sir Vasa
DarkTigger

Brennon and Axident are most commonly found at Bright Forge.
DarkTigger and Vasa are most commonly at EagleShire.

We did not write down comments during this competition mainly because of the cold. Everybody stated that they were completely open to giving feedback to people. Recalling details about the food or performance entries will degrade over time. Although, for the other entries if you bring them with you to one of the aforementioned parks, we should be able to give a much more detailed analysis of how various items could be improved.
