    At nine eastern time (9:00 PM EST), we'll host the Traveling Bard's Night at the Knights Rest. The event is sponsored by the 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 used in your stories.
    * There will be a time limit (usually five minutes, but may be changed due to the amount of storytellers).
    * All stories adhere to the theme: Change
    * 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.

    I suppose it could be nice if you actually mentioned where the Knight's Rest is.

    And where people will be gating from if the 30 second walk from Yew gate is too much.

    Yeah... that's what I get for rushing to post it. Sorry about that. The Knight's Rest is in Yew Trammel just a little ways southeast of the moongate. We'll have someone gating from Luna starting at about 8:30.

    I'm no storyteller, but I might drop in to listen.

    The Knight's Rest is in the first clearing south of the Yew trammel moongate. From what I hear they will be gating from Luna bank. I will try to find an old map of the area.

    Vallend's out sick. He won't be able to make it. Someone one else is going to have to fill in.
