Brothers and sisters! Gauntleteers and brethren of B&C! I bring you the FINAL CHALLENGE. There are but a handful of members who are still in with a chance of gaining the coveted IRON GAUNTLET. These intrepid fellows have braved four challenges prior to this, over many months. I do not doubt that many who began the IRON GAUNTLET way back in March have burnt out or otherwise succumbed to the vagaries of procrastination, memory and plain old lack of time and inclination.
We have a clutch of brothers who have their eyes on the prize - the right to call themselves bearers of the IRON GAUNTLET. It is a privilege that only one person in the past has been honoured with, the fact that we will see several earn this accolade is nothing short of something worth celebrating!
The series of challenges, begun with this year's Liberalia Martiale, will be slated to end - thanks to slightly iffy scheduling on my part over the year - around Christmas.
As usual, this last challenge will be open to everyone, not just the final few Gaunleteers that have survived 2017. As such, if any member would like to participate in this fifth challenge, all they need to do is make a vow:
I, <your name>, of the <Chapter/Warband/Regiment name> take up your Challenge. I vow, before my brothers and sisters of the B&C to complete THE FINAL CHALLENGE and submit it to the Liber before the deadline. I vow to support my fellow challengers to the best of my ability. May the Emperor/the Dark Gods/Brother Argos himself curse me if I fail.
The Final Challenge
* Bronze: Write a story about your organisation that is between 1000 and 1999 words in length;

Good luck and have fun. And remember, with three months available, I will be a teeny bit disappointed if our Final Few don't attempt a gold rank...
