Battle of the Bards
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:28:54 AM »
Roliver Thynd, proprietor of the Silver Taproom in Essembra, puts the word out that a bardic festival and contest is to be held at his establishment at the turn of the month. Bards and those with performance training are especially encouraged to enter, though anyone may have a go if they feel brave enough to take the stage.

The prize is yet to be announced, but rumour has it that it'll be a very special thing indeed. And, of course, fame and fortune come with the victory - perhaps even gaining the notice of the War-Chancellor.



OOC: This is looking likely to be held on Saturday March 31st at 7pm BST (British Summer Time/UTC+1), however this is quite flexible (within the UK timezone) so we can shift it earlier or later if that suits the majority.

Please register your interest by posting below and let me know if you'll be sending a competitor or just coming to enjoy the show (you don't have to be established to enter!). Audience members are absolutely welcome and I'm hoping we'll get a good turnout to cheer the PC bards on :)

Edit: I'm a doofus and thought daylight savings changes were happening AFTER this event but it turns out the clocks change this weekend. Please be aware that London time next week is different from London time at time of posting.

Please double check your time conversions. I'll post in the discord with notice several hours & 1 hour before the event begins just incase that helps!

I'd go with Nasiha but I literally can't do weekends. Friday (30th) around the same time would be much more doable.

Oof, sounds like whether we do Friday or Saturday someone's going to miss out this time :(

I'd like to have a character perform, but can only really do Saturday although that's subject to change.

Itís looking like Saturday is better than Friday for the majority. Anyone else with input?

If Saturday, I'll be there in some spectating capacity.

This site may help: http://everytimezone.com/

But I often just ask Google to convert times for me.
