Event details

The Sun fades, the Chill comes, and we long for a cozy fire to sit around for warmth and cheer.  What better way to spend the frigid day than a day of story, song, poetry, and more?

Winter Nights will once again be online.  Other than that, it will be the same as it ever was.  Rounds of performances, then pairing up with other bards to challenge them and yourself.  Winter Nights is a competition, but also a chance to grow and improve as a performer
The format is as follows:

Round 1:  A showcase of your best work, as long as it meets one of the EK Standing Challenges and is no longer than 7 min.

Round 2 & 3:  The competitors will be paired off.  Each pair will discuss what they can and cannot do as far as performances.  Then the performers will "challenge" their counterparts to meet an agreed-upon challenge.  As with Round 1, maximum time limit of 7 minutes.

After Round 3, the winners will be announced.  There are 2 prizes.  The grand prize winner from the East Kingdom (Resides in the East Kingdom) will be bestowed the Armband as well as a gift card and the Grand prize winner from out of kingdom will be presented a giftcard. 

Following the competition, we will have an Open Bardic Circle.
