As the forest home of the Stag is ever renewed by the sapling, so too are the Outlands enriched by those newly come to the practice of Art and Science. To that end, Yasamin Khatun, Patroness of the Arts, calls upon all artisans of humble station to seek a patron and to present themselves to vie for Her favour at Her Majesty’s Prize Tournament. Further, She charges both those who hold a Grant or Patent in their art and the members of the Order of the Rose to seek out and prepare such budding artisans, that they might come without fear to this noble display and company to show the fruits of their study.

Queen’s Prize Tournament is a celebration of beginning artisans in the Outlands. While Her Majesty will chose an entry upon which to bestow Her Prize, the purpose of QPT is to share the joy of one’s art with others. Entries will not be scored; comments will be available for those who wish feedback.

Please refer to the Kingdom Arts and Sciences page at for rules and regulations.

Documentation Requirement: Written documentation can be minimal, or can be as detailed as you like. When her majesty visit you to check out your entry, she will talk, and you can fill her in on what you think she should know. (Written documentation for this is mostly for the benefit of those who’d like feedback on it before kingdom A&S, and lets interested people know more about your entry. She actually enjoys reading extensive documentation, but she will very likely not have time to read anyone’s docs on site.)

Works in progress will be allowed to enter.
