Come witness and/or participate in the selection of the next Bard of the Mists while eating a delicious Mediterranean feast. Bards from all over the Principality will compete to become the next Bard of the Mists, and the feast will be cooked by James MacAllister and Mische Nadler and their merry minions. The menu will be posted to sca-west and also to the Principality website once it is finalized.

Competitors will be required to present five pieces:

  1. A period work. Documentation should be brief, hut convincing.
  2. A work of your own creation in a period style. Documentation should be brief but convincing.
  3. Bards Challenge - A piece of your own creation on the topic of War. You can he for it, against it, or anywhere in between.
  4. What I do best - A work that you feel best shows off your talent and what you can bring to the job of Bard of the Mists. This piece need not be composed by the entrant.
  5. The famous Three Words / Fifteen Minutes challenge.
Competitors should notify the current Bard in advance if possible, but last minute entrants are welcome. "Auditors" (entrants not competing for the post) may or may not be allowed, depending on how many competitors there are.
