The Family Cap will be in effect for those of you with larger families.
Martial Activities: All Armored Fighters MUST be authorized in both Weapon & Shield as well as Great Weapon. This is pertinent to the challenges that await you. Rapier will also be available with its own set of specific challenges of each realm.
Arts & Sciences Activities: A warrior traveling through the realms will carry his or her personal gear on the journey but will also encounter the inhabitants and environments of the realms. There are nine categories, one for each Realm. However, entries can fit in more than one category so you must choose which realm you wish to represent in your entry! Be as creative as the categories and your interpretation of them are. Musical instruments can be decorated with wood-burning. Arrows can have magical charms penned on them. Farming implements can be used as weapons. What art or science do you do? How can you present it as something that meets the parameters of your chosen category? Be creative...
