Temptation or Salvation? The conflict between vice and virtue is ever-present yet mostly silent. Not this time! We invite you to join us for a contest – a battle, if you will – for the souls of the innocents!
Saturday will include:
Classes, tournament, arts & sciences competition, a silent auction, feast, and a masquerade (specifics to come later) – all during a day-long contest.
Psychomachia – The Contest
Attendees will be allowed to pick a token at random (from a feast and not-feast selection). Event staff will be keeping a tally of who is a vice and who is a virtue.
White tokens are “innocent” tokens. If you’re up for the challenge, take one and allow yourself to be “tempted” or “saved” by our lead vices and virtues!
Points are obtained by fighting, attending classes, entering the A&S competition (bonus points for winning), tempting or saving an innocent, and for volunteering aid. Whichever side with the most points by the end of the day will win a prize. (Innocents receive a prize for their ‘bravery’ in playing along.) The winning side will be announced during the masquerade.
Traveler’s Fare will be provided!
Arts and Sciences Competition:
SCA Life, General, and a special event themed category (“Pscyhomachia”) will be open for entries. The winner will be decided by populace vote.
Classes: (will be updated as determined)
