Literary Contests in 19th Anni


Recommended Posts

I will endeavor to host at least one Improv Literary Session at either Fortune's Well or GoE at some time(s) announced each day of the anniversary - and could pop up any place or time if a crowd gathers.  Depending on how many people wish to play, I will offer some sort of literary competition, ranging from Hangman to Competitive Tale Spinning to Role=Play to group story telling to themed punning to improv poetry.  Winner of each such session will get 1 point for each opponent "vanquished".  Best total for the 19 days of the anniversary will get a wishpoint - other prizes will be awarded at my discretion (maybe more wp's if enough participate).

In addition, anyone may post a composition of any theme in this thread (or ask me to post it anonymously if you think that helps) and the winner by "up-votes minus down-votes" will get a wishpoint - again, I may award other prizes at my discretion.  Sharpen your pencils!

Current Scores and ranking for the daily events:

Invie 3 pts (hangman #2) +1 pt (Puns) --- Leading!
Chewett 3 pts (hangman #1)
Chriselnenepr 3 pts (Trivia)
Ivorak 3 pts (Avy Trivia)
Syrian 3 pts (puns)
Ledah 2 pts (Hangman #3)

{List will be updated periodically}

[24/04/23 21:35] Invie:Fine, and you?
[24/04/23 21:36] Fyrd Argentus:Each round, a theme is announced and we take turns making a pun. If you can't think of anything in-theme, or repeat one already used, you drop out that round.
