    Super exciting I know! But everyone likes a good poem.

    The event will be held at the Shrine of Sobriety. It is located along the road east of Britain. It's a ruin that looks like a virtue shrine. Sobriety IS a virtue afterall and I am a priestess of sobriety.

    There is also a teleporter at the PaxOku Tea House that will take you directly there.

    You can win PRIZES and PRESTIGE. The prizes aren't too bad either. And it's sort of like eloquent verbal PvP.


    You need to show up and recite a poem. The topic for the poem is SUMMER. It can be about anything you like as long as it involves SUMMER in some way.

    The poem can be as short as Haiku, but preferably not as long as Beowulf or the Illiad. If you can tell it inside of five minutes, that is a good guideline. Maybe five verses at most

    Poems are rated on quality, not grammar or length. So if you like ur u's, don't worry. Tell a good poem and you'll be considered fairly.

    If we have lots of people I will ask two others to help me judge. Otherwise it is just me. Bribes can be left in my mailbox.

    There will be prizes for first, second, and third place.

    Most importantly have fun! And I don't want a silent audience - just a pleasant one!
