The Falcon Banner has posted a new item, 'Bardic College "Big Damn Stick" Competition Requirements. <http://falconbanner.gladiusinfractus.com/?p=1173>' From Lord Janos: ------------------------------ The competition will be held at Bardic Bedlam. I don’t have the dates handy.* (Ed. note: September 26th at Puddleford)* The requirements are: Original song, story, or poem. Any theme you like. By ‘original’ I mean: written for this contest. You can have done it around the campfire a couple of times, sure, but definitely not entered in a competition before. In other words, Dorcas could not use Compact between Horse and Man (and I know she won’t mind me using her as a random example). After some thought, I am going to go ahead and open it up to past holders of the BDS. Filks are allowed, but please announce it as such; fully original pieces will have an edge. Pieces will be judged on creativity/appeal, technical aspects (musical composition for a song, rhythm and meter/rhyme or alliteration for a poem, or story construction and mechanics for a story), and performance. Documentation is not required, but if you want to supply a written copy of the work, or information about the style, then feel free. Feel free to do a brief introduction as well.
