Coronation of Signy and Cuan

The Temptation of Atlantia: Virtue

March 31 – April 2, 2017

As we prepare to celebrate the Coronation of our new monarchs Atlantia’s fate lies in the balance.  The eight Vices and their Agents have awoken and have begun corrupting our populace. The eight Virtues are responding quickly to protect our fair kingdom.  His Majesty Cuan has declared HIS PRIDE AND HIS FAITH in Atlantia and her people to Virtuous.  However, Temptation questions the nature of Atlantian Pride and challenges that it is in truth a Vice.

Only you, the people of Atlantia, can secure Atlantia’s fate.

Are you a Force for Vice or an Acolyte of Virtue?

Come and declare your allegiance!

Everyone who attends the event will be provided an opportunity to be either an Acolyte of Virtue or a Force for Vice.

Temptation has devised a points system to determine whether Atlantia falls to Vice or emerges triumphant and Virtuous.  Temptation’s points system is as mysterious as the points at any good wizarding school.

The Virtues

Marshal Activities

On the List Fields

   

Friday night: There will be both heavy and rapier torchlight round robin tournaments.

Saturday: There will be two tournaments, 1 on 1 and a three-man team, in each discipline.  

Each Vice or Virtue will field at least one three man team and have at least one individual fighter in the singles tournament.  There are no restrictions on the number of three man teams or on how many individuals a Vice or Virtue can field in the tournaments.  

Tournaments will be run Bedford points style allowing everyone to fight as much as they wish.  Fighters are encouraged to fight in multiple tournaments.  Time permitting; the day will culminate in a Grand Melee.  

Live Weapons

The archery range will be open all day.  Everyone (archer or not) is encouraged to shoot.  Temptation has declared that for every hit on a target representing a particular Virtue or Vice a point will be deducted from that Virtue or Vice’s total points.  The more arrows you land on another’s target, the fewer points the enemy will have!  

Sunday: The field will be open until 1PM for fighter practice and unit fighting scenarios.   

Bardic

There will be not one, but two (that's right, two!) Bardic competitions at Coronation. The bardic competitions are designed such that the bards themselves will unknowingly select the best virtue or vice. During each competition, the entrants will conceal their team alliances (except for the winner, who must declare his or her team at the conclusion of the competition). In this way, the quality of the vice or virtue, and not team alliance, will surely prevail.

Friday Night Bardic Competition and Bardic Circle

The Friday night competition will be held around a bardic circle. Come perform your favorite piece, or sit in the audience and be entertained! Each entrant in the competition should bring their best song, story or poem related to (at least) one of the Virtues or Vices of Atlantia. The performance does not need to correspond to the entrant's chosen team. Those competing will decide the winner, by voting for the best (on theme) performance. Each performance should be no longer than 5 minutes. It is recommended that the competitors carefully guard their team alliance, because those bards who have succumbed to vice will almost certainly not vote for a virtue laden, vice hating bard who represents everything in the world that oppresses their desire to lead a carefree life of lust, gluttony and greed. After a winner is chosen, he or she will declare their allegiance to Vice or Virtue and earn their chosen team a point towards the overall event tally. The bardic fun will continue as an open bardic circle following the competition, until all of team virtue is off to bed, and all of team vice is inebriated (or until the autocrat tells us to stop).

Saturday Afternoon Vice and Virtue Bardic Bearpit

On Saturday afternoon, there will be a Bardic Bearpit Competition. Bring your bardic weapons of vice and virtue (songs, stories and poems) and prepare to do battle with your fellow bards! Will your songs of inebriation, immorality and indiscretion win the day for Team Vice? Or will your stories of patience, purity and persistence loosen the grip of Vice on our Kingdom and win the victory for Team Virtue?

The bearpit will consist of head to head bardic combat. The winner of each bout will then answer the challenge of the next competitor. In addition to points for winning each bout, bonus points will be awarded for original compositions, period pieces, and/or vice/virtue-themed pieces. Don't forget your Bard book, as the bearpit format can leave you scrambling for some long-forgotten song that you never thought you'd sing again! The bard with the most points will win the day and earn a point for their chosen team.

Each performance should be no longer than 5 minutes, including any introduction. Your fellow competitors will vote for the winner of each bout, therefore it might be best to conceal your allegiances during the competition, because do-gooder virtuous competitors are highly unlikely to knowingly vote for those who champion the pleasures of vice. This competition will be sexy and entertaining. The bards will pleasure the ears of their audience! Come perform for your chosen vice or virtue!

Vice or Virtue Illuminated Blank Competition

hosted by Helene Isabelle de Soleure

This competition has three potential winners. Each entry has to declare for either side: Vice or Virtue. The populace gets to vote for their favorite out of the two categories. The most votes in each category wins the “Best of Vice” or “Best of Virtue”. An overall winner will be decided by a panel of judges out of ALL entries and will be awarded the point towards the final count of the event.

For the overall (judged) portion of the competition, points will be awarded based on originality and imagination, documentation of historical plausibility of the design, and the cohesiveness of the overall look of the scroll. The idea is not to reproduce the look of any illuminated page, but to make an original design/layout by using elements and designs from documentable sources. More points are awarded if the scroll has an overall cohesive appearance (e.g. all elements are documentable to within half a century in a specific locale).

By approval of the scribe, these blanks might be used as award scrolls for the event's other competitions. Please, state your preference on your documentation.


Scrivener Royal Competition

Part of being the Scrivener Royal is working with illuminated blanks of a style that demand calligraphy you are not familiar with. With pre-painted blanks, all is left is the calligraphy. It may be that the recipient's persona or your available blank needs a hand different from your most used one.

In consultation with Their Highnesses the following is the competition for Scrivener Royal: CALLIGRAPHY.

RULES

The standardized judging sheet for calligraphy will be used. http://moas.atlantia.sca.org/judging/callig.htm

Documentation will not be judged but you may include it with your entry. The winner of the Scrivener Royal competition will be invested in the evening court of the new King and Queen.

Contact me via my "Geffrei Maudeleyne" Face Book page for quickest response. Artist@Geffrei.com gets checked about once per evening.

The Scrivener Royal job description from Kingdom Law
