I apologize for not posting here during the reign about the Winter Reign Crafting Series competitions. I posted regularly on FB, but many of you correctly look here for formal information.
The intention this reign was to start a series similar to the Tournament series, but instead promote the development of Arts and Sciences judging and crafting at the Dragonmaster level. As there was minimal precedent, this was a starting point, hopefully you found it satisfying and it will continue in some form for future reigns. I am sure there is much room for improvement and change. We had several crafters enter, experienced judges helping the less experienced, and a wonderfully informative Panel Discussion.
In the issue of transparency, I am posting the excel spreadsheet that documents the scoring and bracketing we used for the WMCSIV. If you see things you would change or improve, please step up and participate in the next series.
