  • Winter Ball Poetry & Music Contest: Fall into Winter - Deadline 1/10/21YRA

    All fellow denizens,


    In celebration of Winter Ball, Her Royal Majesty, His Highness and His Excellency, I am pleased to announce both a poetry and musical composition contest for those with an interest and talent in either.

    Poetry guidelines are as follows:
    • Your poem must celebrate the theme of Winter Ball: Fall into Winter (a transition of the seasons), our Royalty OR a mixture of both (bonus points for the latter)
    • It may be any style, but must be written in the common or Northern tongue, and may not be more than five stanzas long with four lines each (OOC: It shouldn't take half an hour to recite)
    • It must be suitable for delivery in front of the Winter Court (ie, no foul language, inappropriate innuendos, etc.)
    • Submissions must be turned in to myself by Freys, the 10th of the 1st moon, no later than midnight - you have about two weeks!
    • All submissions must be signed and dated

    Musical composition guidelines are as follows:
    • Your piece must celebrate the theme of Winter Ball: Fall into Winter (a transition of the seasons), our Royalty OR a mixture of both (bonus points for the latter)
    • It may be any style, but must not take longer than fifteen ticks to perform
    • It must be suitable for delivery in front of the Winter Court, namely if written words are involved
    • Your musical composition MAY contain lyrics, but they are not required. At times the music can sufficiently speak for itself.
    • Readiness to perform for me and a member of the Court of my choosing must be made known to me by the 10th of the 1st moon, no later than midnight - you have about two weeks!
    • You can arrange an appointment to be heard either in person or via courier. Please sign your scroll if you go that route.

    There will be one winner in each category, earning them the honor of performing at and participating in Winter Ball. In addition, each winner will receive a custom-designed garment crafted by the Clothiers in a custom hue along with 100 coins. Disclaimer: It is not guaranteed that a commoner will win as individuals of all ranks can enter and participate.

    Pull out all the stops and let your talent shine as we celebrate winter traditions, our home and each other!

        Congratulations to sera Nariseth, our single entrant, for winning the poetry portion of the contest. As no musical compositions were received, there are no winners in that category.
