Do you ever wish a feast could come with marvelous ongoing bardic entertainment? This one will! Come gather in the feast hall to witness (or participate in) the battle of wits and words, of story and song that will determine who the next Bard of the Mists shall be. You won’t be bored!
As per tradition, the bardic competition shall be composed of five parts:
- A period piece (documentation should be brief but convincing)
- An original piece in a period style (documentation should be brief but convincing)
- Masterwork – a piece to highlight what you do best
- Bard’s Challenge: Original piece to inspire the populous to improve our society some way
- The famed Three Words Out of a Hat / Fifteen Minutes challenge
Depending on time and the number of competitors, auditors (those wishing to try their bardic skill without formally competing for the position of Bard) may be welcome. The populous is particularly encouraged to try their hands—or pens—at the 3 Words/ 15 Minutes challenge!
If you plan to compete, wish to audit or if you have any questions about the competition, please contact Derelei ingen Ferat, the current Bard of the Mists.
A marvelous feast will be crafted by Flidais Ni Eitigen. If you have any concerns regarding allergies, please contact her. Reservations for the feast are to be sent to the Autocrat, Aelf of Kingscrossing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
