I agree with the idea that it should just be Bards/ Brewers and Cooks and I would tavel for that (as long as it is on a weekend I am available) and so would my Lord who does none of those things, but enjoys them all :)

There are plenty of times that we non-fighters travel near and far just to support our fighters at events where there is no official support of our art. How hard would it be for them to do this one event in support of us? And at least at this event unlike a static art event, they get food, beer and entertainment! I dont know about other's fighting SOs but I know mine would gladly forgo his armor for a weekend to increase his natural padding :P

Piffle. Whose needs does Steppes Warlord serve? To whom is it relevant?
a) the fighters in the list
b) those who come to watch and enjoy the lists
c) all of the above

It's "c)", of course. And without Warlord having to do a *thing* to  
"cater" to the rest of the kingdom -- just provide a spectacular  
venue for fighting.

Actually, I think that such an event, as discussed/proposed thus far,  
*does* have appeal to the non bards/brewers/cooks. Anyone with a  
grain of intellect should be able to figure out that they'd have a  
wonderful time just *being* at such an event. Especially if the  
organizers tell them so in the event advertising. Repeatedly. :-)

As would many others, I suspect. :-)
