Current Bardic Champion

Minister Art & Sciences

  • Minister of Arts & Sciences

    Lord Hoshikawa Takakage (He/Him)

    Arts and Sciences are just what they sound like. The line between what is an "art" and what is a "science" is often blurred, hence one person organizes workshops in both areas, and helps people find others to help them in specific areas of interest.
