A&S 50 Challenge

Greetings unto the Dragon's Embroidery Guild from Jahanrabanu Vivana,

I would like to bring to your attention a challenge that has issued
forth from our cousins across the ocean. It is a challenge that I
know we are capable of meeting. First I must thank Lady Katerina von
Danzig for bringing this challenge to my attention!

Lady Albreda Aylese of the Mountain Freehold in the East Kingdom has
issued forth this challenge to all Knowne World Artisans. She has
challenged us to undertake the making of 50 things by the Society's
50th Anniversary (2015 by current reckoning). She has made known
three approaches the Depth Challenge, which is to simply make 50
things from your favorite art or science. The Breadth Challenge to
complete 50 things from a variety of arts and sciences. Finally, the
Persona Challenge to undertake 50 things that your Persona would
have done/made. There is also an option for a group to complete the
challenge together. If we wanted the guild could participate
together, or we can participate individually. Any Guild specific
challenge projects can be completed for this challenge as well!

50 may seem like a daunting number, but can definitely be
accomplished in the time allowed. Your challenge items must be made
between 1 May 2007 and 1 May 2015, that's 8 years! Surely we all
complete 6-7 projects each year. If you are looking to push yourself
in a particular area or to learn new arts this is a way to
accomplish that goal!

Those who are interested in more information may consult the A&S
Challenge home page <http://artsandsciences50.org/index.html>. I
would encourage everyone who will be participating in the challenge
to join the Blog community <http://artsandsciences50.blogspot.com/>
and make yourselves known! I will singing up to coordinate efforts
here in Insulae Draconis and hope the news will spread to the
Kingdom. I would ask one of the guild members to volunteer to
coordinate the efforts on the Kingdom level. If you are in ID please
let me know if you are planning to participate, as I would like to
keep a list of all participating artisans for the ID A&S Reports. I
hope that many will join me in this quest, so that we may support
each other in our adventure.

YIS,
Jahanara
