The Shaikha of Castel Rouge has demanded the skulls of her enemies once more!

This is a challenge for skulls/skull themed projects in any medium (modern or period), to be presented in war court at Gimli. These projects will be on display in the hall until feast on Saturday (you can add your project in the morning if you don’t make war court). There will be a populace vote and also the Shaikh and Shaikha’s choice.
