So I am hoping we can do it at Dragonsspine's champion event this summer
So now that I am done what next??
Well naturally I want to corrupt those close to home and after talking to Her Excellency Mary about how much I learned from the dragonsspine quest we brainstormed on how we could introduce it to Caerthe and open it up to get more people involved.
So I created a new yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scaquest/
I am planning on holding a 1/2 hour class at crossroads where I will explain the goals of the quest and go into the categories. I hope to have a good group of folks excited and ready to start the quest shortly there after.
Eventually I would love to have a Chair person run the quest under the office of the baronial minister of the arts and sciences but I would really like that chair person be someone who has finished the quest so they understand the wants and needs of the folks undertaking the quest so that is a plan for the future.
I am also thinking of some sort of belt favor to show those who have started the quest and when you finish you receive another favor with charms showing which categories you have done. then your old questing favor can be passed down to the new questing giving them a bit of history but again this is in the works
So here is hoping that the quest takes off in Caerthe!!!

I'm getting a bit pissed about it in truth... I've waited about 6 months for an answer to this. I'm about to say "forget it (I'm watching my language)" and do a one page write up on my habitat or everyday life and call it done.... then if the heraldry thing ever comes thru I will be 1 over the # of categories I need.... I'll tell you this lack of support and communication is beyond killing me... no wonder the rest of the group that started this never did any of it... it's been over managed to death and no one is willing to to step up and run the darn thing.... Arggg I'm just venting. I'm all for someone having a life but what I hate is that we all are scared to death of sharing our opinions for fear we will be black balled heck I have probably blown my chance at awards and recognition just by writing this but what can I say I'm upset. I shouldn't have to wait 6 months for an answer on something that was in the "works" over a year ago!
ok I feel better next step write the 1 page non judged page

As for my clothing entry I recieved an average score of 34.933 or 69.86% yes I missed the 35 score by .07 points now many folks think I should just round it up and call it good but considering the lack of support and such I doubt the great powers that be would give it to me and to prevent any challenges I might get I must re enter this and pray for a 70% score....
Now as a side note- there is a reason I don't enter caerthe's A&S and sadly today confirmed my reasoning's tho since I stepped up as caerthes A&S minister it is now my job to attempt to fix the issues I have so much trouble with.....
Kingdom A&S is by far the most intense A&S I have ever entered. As I am yet to try my luck with an inter kingdom competition at a war. I have never in the 10 years I have been in this kingdom entered a kingdom level event. I am scarred to death!!! I thought some of the judging today was a bit rough- It is a common train of thought that if you score an average of a 30% score with an item at kingdom that this is a huge success!! how am I going to get a 70% at this event??
I would like to also add sadly that many of my judging forms were returned with no comments at all.... so I have no idea what those judges liked or disliked....
(or maybe this was some form of initiation for the incoming A&S minister.....hmmmm)
so I'm feeling a bit down since I thought the clothing item was the stronger of my two quest entries at this event and will only give a heavy hearted - 2 more categories left to do...
ugghhh this is so depressing...... I hope a good nights sleep will help me see the light and find some motivation to redo the clothing stuff and I hope I survive my first kingdom A&S event
