Details on the Baronial A&S Championship from Baroness Drueta. 

Hail unto the Artisans of the East!

The Baron and Baroness of Iron Bog will be searching for their newest A&S Champion and wish to invite all artisans to compete in this year's challenge.

There are many things to go into the preparations for War besides marshal training.  There are supplies to stockpile, weapons and armor to be forged, banners and tabards to be sewn, medicines to be prepared, etc...

Their Excellencies wish all competitors in our A&S Challenge to help us prepare for War.  Please share with us your entries and how they best relate to war preparation.  We look forward to your creative artistry that will help us to meet our foes upon the field of glory.

In holding with our tradition, the competition will be judges by past and present Baron and Baroness of Iron Bog.  To qualify to be the next baronial Arts and Sciences Champion you must reside within a group that touches Iron Bog's land.

In Service to our Kingdom and my Barony,

Baroness Drueta de la Rosa

Current Arts and Sciences Champion of the Barony of Iron Bog
