Well, I did say, among other things. The other things include callig. and
Illum. Unlike some other kingdoms, Ansteorra *usually* requires one to be
excellent in one or more fields, proficient in several more. If you go to
Pennsic's Grand Court, you will see many peers made and for the East
Kingdom, I think it is, they will actually say "...elevated to the rank,
estate, etc. etc. ad nauseum, for Costuming (or armoring, or whatever)"
Here they don't do that. Beginning with the grant level A&S award it just
says for really nifty stuff in the arts & sciences. Cynric also makes
beautiful reliquaries and writes hilarious articles based on research into
language, customs, etc. --among other things--
