    At seven o'clock Eastern time (7:00 PM EST) on Saturday, April 4th, Traveling Bard's Night will be hosted by the United Pirates once again at the Jolly Roger Inn. The event is sponsored by PGoH. The rules of bard's night are simple:

    * Leave your conflicts at the door and bring your stories with you.
    * No harsh obscenities are to be used in your stories.
    * There will be a time limit (usually five minutes, but subject to change due to the number of storytellers).
    * This week something a little different. Improvisation. Each storyteller will be given 3 minutes to come up with a story based on 3 random objects or words.

    The top three will win cash prizes and will be given an invitation to the champions event at a later date.

    The prize will be divided as follows: 500,000 gold crowns for first place; 325,000 gold crowns for second; and 175,000 gold crowns for third. Judging will take place by three crowd members chosen at random, who will decide on the winners.

    The Jolly Roger Inn's coordinates are 169o 32'S 21o 35' E in Trammel, and gates will be run from New Haven starting at approximately 6:30 to give people time to come sign up. See you there!

    Ugh but then that'd mean I'd have to go to their black market after.

    Why would I ever want to do a thing like that?

    Maybe I will go murder some puppies and then tell a story about it so I can win first place. Or maybe a story about how I beat up this two year old that was looking at me funny. heh

    Thanks to the stinkin pirates for hosting.

    People are still mad at me for killing Clainin?

    Clainin dead = Casca weakened = Win Win!

    Alright... the topic isn't set. It's a random thing. Nobody knows what items/words will be picked. You'll have three minutes to come up with a story and about five minutes to tell it. Time limits will be strictly enforced due to the Black Market event starting up an hour afterwards.

    You want to go to the Black Market event to see how Aneirin sticks his foot in it this time, of course!

    The time limits will be VERY strictly enforced on this one, but if delays happen, I'll move the whole kit'n'kaboodle to the black market.

    I'm actually not going to be home this evening for any of this. I hope everyone has a good time.

    I only wish I could have gotten a screen shot of when I shouted for the "Guards!" when a giant serpent appeared at the gates of the Black Market, and EM Cernunnos, along with 2 or 3 others raced to the door to slay the beast.

    After all...it isn't every day that an EM responds to the plea for help in killing a monster.

    ****Tips hat to EM Cernunnos****
