Wars of the Roses: Bardic Competition

Announcing the Bardic competition for the Wars of the Roses!

The Wars of the Roses were a 30 year conflict fought over who had the legitimate claim to the throne of England.

In the Medieval period, no less than our present day, the people’s belief in the legitimacy of their ruler was crucial to maintaining peace and prosperity.

Your challenge is to bring to the competition a piece on the topic of legitimacy: how it is conveyed, earned, created, or projected (or not), and why that matters (or doesn’t) in the outcome of the story you are telling.

In service,
Drake Oranwood, Baronial Bard, Concordia of the Snows
