MAY: DUKE SKEGGI BUILD-A-SWORD CHALLENGE
The “Duke Skeggi Build a Sword Challenge” will take place at 3M Ethereal First Court A.S LVI event at 10 AM. This Challenge is dedicated to Masters Mishka Ravensfury and Sean ap Llwyd. Modest prizes and bragging rights will be awarded to the Challenger of the StormMaker’s choosing. Missing Crown and Egils? All those pick up fights? Longing for an excuse to make that last minute effort to build a new weapon? This timed challenge is for you. His Grace Skeggi is known to build a new sword the morning of Crown Tournament. Choose your rattan and hilt, prepare your supplies and get ready! One hour is the time you’ll have to create your sword. Rattan may be cut to length before the Challenge begins. Challengers must decide if they will choose to plane, carve, or drill the sword though no planning, carving or drilling may happen before the Challenge begins. At 9:45 AM Challengers will meet in the StormMaker Breakout Room. The StormMaker will begin the Challenge at or about 10 AM and will end one hour later. The finished sword must be suitable for use in an An Tir Crown Tournament. Extra points will be awarded to finished swords that go above and beyond – thrusting tips, artwork along the blade – however you have time to “fancify” your efforts will be rewarded. If you are up to this Challenge, notify the StormMaker Hlutwige either on the Book of Faces or via email at
