[WES] Mists Bardic

Feasting season is upon us and now is the time that we join in warm company to listen to poem and song as we bear witness to the competition for the next Bard of the Mists.

The site will open at 11:00 to the general populace for set up with competitions beginning at 2:00 pm.

The competition this time will consist of the same traditional five rounds:

  • First: A period piece.
  • Second: A piece in a period style.
  • Third: Bard’s Choice – This year, the challenge I put forth is “To Make a Toast”. Use your creativity and your talents to craft a toast for any person(s) or group that you wish.
  • Fourth: Your Masterwork – Please perform a piece that you have written that displays your talent at its best.
  • Fifth: Draw three words out of a hat and compose a piece in fifteen minutes.

If you have any questions regarding the competitions or wish to declare your intent to compete, please contact the Bard of the Mists, Mdm Ghislaine d’Auxerre at mdmghislaine@yahoo.com

A grand feast of spectacles in the theme of the Greek Myths will be crafted for you by the able hands of Dame Rose de LeMans.

If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies please contact the cook, Dame Rose, directly at rose@santiagosmagic.com
