Greetings unto all citizens of the Middle Kingdom and the Known World.

In celebration of the Barony of the Cleftlands’  40th birthday on May 5, 2018, their Excellencies Gianna and Crispin of the Cleftlands call upon all artisans of the realm to commemorate this august occasion. For those who wish to participate in this challenge, either individually or as a team, and share their arts with the Kingdom, create forty (40) largesse items. These items can be of one type, or several types so long as the total number of items is forty.

Examples of largesse items include, but are by no means limited to those listed below. Think anything given in baskets to foreign dignitaries or to members of the populace by the royal family.

  • arm bands
  • circlets
  • necklaces
  • handmade paper
  • tablet weaving
  • weaving cards
  • pouches
  • award tokens
  • scrolls
  • scroll cases
  • fans
  • lucets
  • cups / mugs
  • soaps
  • veil pins
  • lacing rings
  • pottery
  • dice
  • coins
  • puzzles
  • games
  • sewing kits
  • cutlery
  • napkins
  • bells
  • buttons
  • needles
  • spun fibers

The largesse items generated from this challenge will be presented to the Crown and to their Excellencies Cleftlands to be given as largesse.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I would like to keep in touch with people who are participating in the challenge to ensure that sufficient display room during the event and largesse transport afterward can be arranged.
