    At nine o'clock Eastern time (9:00 PM EST) on Saturday, March 14, Traveling Bard's Night will be hosted by Kate Hawkings at the recently-constructed New Port Theater. 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).
    * All stories must adhere to the theme: "Vanity/Pride."

    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.

    In addition, a note from Kate Hawkings:
    "Dress your best, the best dressed guest in New Port will be awarded 10k *Blaze clothing may not apply* Judging will take place by Miss Kate Hawkings."

    This is New Port Theater's debut. Its coordinates are 13. 42'S 2. 19'W in Malas, and gates will be run from New Haven starting at approximately 8:30 to give people time to come sign up. Keep an eye out for runes dropped around New Haven as well. See you there!

    *Bumps* because I fully support new establishments for the shard!

    I may not be able to make it tonight due to Comcast causing me lag lockups.

    I went through the gate, grabbed a rune to come back from the vendor to bring the rest of my guild but the rune is blocked. Oh well, hope it went well and maybe we'll catch ya next time.

    The winners were...

    1. Talmek
    2. James
    3. Rameses

    Good job, guys, and thank you to all who participated and attended!

    Oh no. D: That's no good. We'll have to have people park the mounts elsewhere in the future.

    Was great fun! All of the performers' stories were very well done. I got to be a judge *Cera Silversteed* and it wasn't easy. It was a tough decision and difficult to choose only 3.

    Anyway, here's a picture I took with all the performers and audience.
    *Sorry I can't seem to get it any larger*

    Talmek and Izznet I beleive were the winners of Kate's little fashion contest. I think Bob could have won except his apron was blaze...

    I was late because i decided to go out to eat at the last minute, so i wasn't aware of some sort of fashion show.

    heh. I admit I forgot about the blaze rule. But that Vampire look was great! Nice job Talmek. And the stories/poems were better than I had expected *smiles*

    Haha, I think she would have picked you if your apron was a different color... Like maybe, I dunno, royal purple would have been good :p

    *Smacks head* Doh! Good point. hehe.

    I wonder if anyone even hovered their mouse over the apron to see who made it? ;) I've had that apron for years now.

    Talmek, with that tux on...do you carry a golden crossbow in a hidden pocket, and kill people in one shot?
