intermediate, advanced" in its competitions, both at Kingdom and
sometimes at branch level. This helps equalize the playing field, as all
levels are judged separately and/or on their own merit within that level.
With persona--you might consider a skill that persona would have known
and/or the making of something that would have been some part of that
persona' material culture.
"Haven't tried before"--perhaps re-define it as a new skill for the
entrant but something their persona would have known about or done. You
could do an "old skill/new skill" based around persona.
Just some random thought,
