The organizers of the Ice Dragon Arts & Sciences competition are proud to announce the Pent website is live! We worked around the clock this winter to get you the information you need ahead of time. Anyone interested in participating should take a little look-see, especially since we plan to have the different judging criteria available beforehand as well. The Material Culture judging criteria is already available here – it is our intention to have all forms available straight from the Pent website in the next week or two.
No more talking, take me to the Pent site NOW, please!
Have you heard of the Pent but are not quite sure what it is? The Pentathlon, often shortened to the Pent, has been around since the second Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon. First started as a local Arts & Sciences competition it quickly grew to a competition with Kingdom impact. But don’t let that intimidate you! This competition is for young and old, for the beginner and the accomplished, and even for the competing, and the artisan more interested in Display. There will be a dedicated Display table, as well as a Misfit table, for those projects that didn’t quite do what they were supposed to do… as we all knows happens to the best of us!
The Pent truly has something for everyone! And there might even be the opportunity for a little Viking Raiding, as traditionally the Barony of the Rhydderich Hael pitches in to donate gifts for each category winner! Now that would be something to look forward to after a busy day of shopping, spectating, fighting, and perusing your fellow artisan Pent entries.
The Pent organizers wish you a productive winter season, and look forward to your project entries. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Pent Coordinator at IDPentGuy AT gmail DOT com.
