    This is the sign-up thread for an event which is to be held on Saturday 30th November at 2:30pm Eastern [7:30pm UK]. Registration will remain open for a couple of weeks. Details of event location, etc., will come later.

    The annual Miss Siege beauty pageant will be taking place at the end of the month where we'll once again find out who the most desirable lady on the shard is. Those who enter will be assessed in four different areas and she who finishes with the highest score will be crowned Miss Siege 2013. As always, we are using independent judges from off-shard to perform the assessments, and this year we have some senior members of the Stratics news agency as well as Sosaria's most famous cook. They will be using a split of 2d and EC clients.

    The contestants will be judged in the following categories, although should there be a high number of entries it may become necessary to have elimination after the first one or two rounds:

    Evening wear - Like all ladies, those on Siege will want to look as glamorous as possible when needed. Here the contestants will be judged on overall appearance in their finest clothing including coordination of colours and accessories.

    Talent show - One cannot rely solely on looks to survive here on Siege; every lady must be able to earn a living in some other way. Each contestant will be given two to three minutes [time to be decided once entry list is finalized] to demonstrate some talent, be it dancing, telling jokes, poetry, animal training, feats of magic, or whatever. Judges will be looking at the overall competence and originality of the display.

    Combat wear - Every lady on Siege must be able to defend herself when needed. Here the judges will be looking for those that can appear both fearsome and glamorous at the same time; Beauty and the Beast indeed.

    Personality - If all else fails, a lady can always try charming her way out of a sticky situation. Every contestant will be asked questions by the judges. Scores will be based on clarity of speech (that is spelling & punctuation, with allowances made if English is not a first language), humour and cheesiness of answers!

    Prizes for the event will once again be furnished by our main sponsor, Max Painfactor, Sosaria's largest cosmetics company, and will include a soulstone token for the winner.

    Entry Requirements:
    Characters must pre-register to enter. To do so, please post here with your character name and your current title (the area, place or institution that you will be representing). Acceptable titles are:

    * Your guild (e.g. Miss Arrr, Miss NEW2)

    * A player or NPC town which you live near, frequent or have some connection to (e.g. Miss Vesper, Miss Barter Town)

    * An area/dungeon/island that you live near, frequent or have some affinity for (e.g. Miss Despise, Miss Twisted Weald, Miss Marble Island).

    Titles must be unique, so you may not choose one which has already been taken.

    Good luck!

    Current entries

    Ariana Riverwind (Miss Umbra)
    Kattasrophe (Miss Luna)
    Talia (Miss Moonglow)

    I believe there is one problem that need to be handled, we do have 2 clients and if a lady use one client and the judge use the other, all her work for trying to look good is wasted. Maybe the ladies should be allowed to choose what client the judge should use when she is showing her stuff.

    Well two judges will be using the CC and two the EC. I guess the really ambitious beauty queen will try and style her outfits to look good, or at least reasonable, in both.

    Well just because humans are a little disadvantaged given they don't have a blue skin Hue and gargoyles have horns. I mean...are they all going to be on the same stage together? Disadvantaged and all?

    I guess I should have asked about orcs? I don't know if I would want my daughter next to an orc...that might be a little, shall we say, disgusting.

    This just in. In a strange turn of events, all of the judges are orcs.

    Oh yes, all races are welcome. The current Miss Siege is an elf and the previous year it was a human.

    No, I think that's all the ladies on Siege. Any of them would be an amazing choice.

    Yes, quite a disappointing response so far, but not unexpected considering how quiet the shard has been the last few weeks. Currently, the judges outnumber the contestants and that will have to be reversed if the event is to go ahead.

    Yes, quite sad.

    I will say this, however, had my mother and I not been so rudely purged from the guild GIL we would have partaken in this player run event.

    Take your revenge by signing up and snatch the Miss Siege title from a GIL member. ;)

    And to the rest. You don´t have to be a female IRL to sign up. A female character is enough. Just wanted to point that out...

    What if we were to put this off for a few weeks? My thinking is people might be gone for thanksgiving (I will be too, but I'm taking my laptop and I'll try to make it work) But perhaps holding it in a few weeks, people who are currently in school might be done for the semester and have play-time again. Just a suggestion :)

    Spiffykeen may have a good point ! I know that rl can get pretty busy between halloween and the first of the year... I could be way off - but it seems to me that the majority of Siege players (except for Kattasrophe of course) are older and see semester breaks only as a fond memory. January might be a better time for Siege people to have more time for a pageant... But what do I know...

    The talent show last year was jaw dropping.

    The event was amazing.

    My Sponsor was most helpful.

    Don't be shy....Apply!

    *chooses not to enroll this year due to r/l issues but will be in the audience....and can also help with Sponsorship if needed*

    Due to the number of entries not meeting my required minimum (that is, more than the number of judges), I regret to say that the Miss Siege pageant has now been cancelled for this year. I hear the suggestion for a postponement, but I think the central problem is the lack of population. Also, I do not wish to muck around the judges any more.

    I would like to thank those who entered, and any of those who did can come to Moonglow Lyceum at the previously appointed event time (Saturday, 2:30pm EST) in either their evening or combat outfit, and they will be awarded a soulstone token if said outfit meets with my approval.

    mhm.. It appears to me Hoffs that you have too many judges. There does appear to be interest in the Pageant since there is over 600 views to this thread. I would also like to point out that this thread as been on the first page for about a month. I hope you reconsider canceling and consider modifying. Best of Luck to you

    I would just like to say That I still think you should do the pagent as if any other year. All of us have worked hard on our clothes and Talents. And we feel it wouldnt be fair if we didnt get to have a chance to see what we can do. I honestly hope you will reconsider canceling. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Is the problem the population or the the holiday weekend? EM events seem to be well attended. I didn't enter because school and health is biting my hind side right now. Never know when I will feel like playing.
