  With less than a week to go I figured all of you would be dying to know how the major events at Crimson Tower are going to work.  Well too bad I'm going to tell you anyway!

  The Arts and Sciences competition will themed with a practical approach.  Yes stained glass and calligraphy are both beautiful and inspiring but will it keep you warm and fed this winter?  We're looking for the basic home necessities here this year.  10 points will be awarded for utility (how useful it is), 10 points for durability (how long will it last), and 5 points for construction (Where it's ugly but it works loses points).  So break out that cloak with no fancy trim just a the magic to keep you warm, or that pouch that isn't all that well tooled but hold 5 bottles at least!  This is your time to shine!

  The fighting this year for both heavy and light will be a white elephant tourney.  No albino pachyderms will be harmed.  All entrants should bring a prize worthy of your competition fighting over.  All prizes will be displayed for all fighters to see.  As the pairings are fought losers turn in their card to the list mistress for the next round and winners place theirs on a prize.  Don't like what you ended up with?  Then challenge the person who has the shiny your heart is set on owning.  Winners of the challenge match decide which of the 2 prizes to keep.  As an added bonus the Western Sentinel and Western Sentry champions titles will also be thrown on the table.

  The weather for Saturday is scheduled for a high of 67.  You can fight all day in that!  But should it be tooo cold there is room to indoors.  Hitting with sticks will be achieved!

  See you there!
