    This weekend the Traveling Bards Night that is presented by the PGoH (Purple Guardians of Honor) revisited the New Port Theater in Malas. The subject of the evening was “Swords and Sorcery” and all the contestants came prepared with interesting tales to share. Kate Hawkings [RFP] chatted with the audience while waiting for the appointed start time to arrive, and there was also a running joke about a evil hat.. ok a VERY evil hat, from those gathered to listen to the nights bards.

    When 9 PM EST rolled around Kate checked the sign in book and stated that there would be four participants in this bards night Lord James [Rose], Lord Scarst [PGoH], Va'lis Razele and Kaylor McKairin.

    First up was Lord James who told a story of the last battle of the Magi War! He was followed by Lord Scarst who told a story about the beginning of the old Battle Mages. Then it was Va’lis Razeles turn who told with much joy his tale about earlier in the evening and how he, as part of the Shadowlord faction, helped slay Clainin the mage. Many in the crowd were stunned by this news and refused to clap for him when he was done with his boastful tale. Next up was Kaylor McKairin who a tale of personal history full of violence and passion. In a surprise Eban whom had arrived late asked to be allowed to share a tale with everyone. It was not hard to see he was very inebriated as he stumbled his way up on the stage and started a most confusing tale that everyone had trouble following. Before he could finish his story he passed out in front of everyone and had to be carried off the stage and to his seat.

    The three volunteer judges Bob, Keiko and Rameses left shortly after this to make their decision, and soon returned. Bob announced that Kaylor McKairin had take third place. Keiko in her own special way declared James the second place winner. Then Rameses took and informed the waiting crowd that Va'lis Razele was the first place winner, and shocked most of the people gathered. Many once again refused to clap for one of the murders of Clainin, a few grumbles were heard in the room, and a few even walked out of the hall in protest.

    Most thanked the host for a nice evening and left as soon as they could to reflect on the evenings events.

    A word from one of the judges (me).

    It was a very, very difficult judging for me. Heck...now that I think about it, that was the very first time I've ever been a judge in any event. So, yeah, I did feel a lot of pressure. I did enjoy all the stories told...especially seeing the um...sot enter the stage. *snickers*

    I won't say who all voted who in terms of first, second or third place. But I will say that I made my choice based on the "edge of your seat" and the running theme of the evening. The first place holder did a good job at reciting the tale. Regardless if he is a cold blooded killer that needs to be hunted down, oh. *ahem* sorry, got carried away for a moment. ;) He did a good job at giving the story. And I would add an informative one at that. Sadly I missed the event by thirty minutes as I was helping a friend build an entertainment center on the other side of town. :sad4: I would have liked to have been there. So, the feedback of the event was quite helpful.

    Anyhow, I have to wonder...with what happened at that event...I wonder if Odric is now laying in wait to kill Melissa. If you don't know who Odric is, you should take a look here: Ramuz Don't think he is going to let someone take credit for what happened. Perhaps...Perhaps Lord Casca is??? Hmm, I better not say anymore. ;)
