Come one come all! and sit around the fire!
Cool mead is on tap, and roasting spikes are available for your marshmallow needs.
Once you're all settled, please listen to five expert story tellers spin their tales.
Then choose, which is best! and the narrator(s) shall be showered in prizes...

Alas my poor slave-sister Kathryin is off looking for gems - otherwise she'd tell you quite the story....


Kaliphlin Story Time: Myths, Legends and Lore mini Challenge.

Go forth and build a story, or a snapshot of your story*. It maybe be about some long lost myth of the creation of Petrea. Or a Legend of your SigFig's rise to power. Or about the Lore of Kaliphlin guild.

It can be from eons ago, or just last week's Tavern crawl.


*must actually write a 50 words or more story.

Judges: Kaliphlin guild - via poll (I'll create a separate thread later)
Meh. Let's let's let anyone vote - Lest people say Mitgardia is more democratic than Kaliphlin!


Open: to anyone, including foreign guilds. Though good luck convincing the judges  :laugh:

Prizes:
Undisclosed number of battlepacks from Dex's personal stash (based on entries):

Thank you very much, Dextrus, for your hospitality, the evening was wonderful!
And now you even want to donate some archeological treasuries to me  :blush: . I will study the mummies carefully. And then probably bury them again?
And to all listeners, thank you for listening. I hope you will spread the Myth of Erezhi.
And to all story tellers, thanks a lotto you as well, I thoroughly enjoyed this evening full of wonders!

Yours,

Thanks Dextrus and the story tellers for a very entertaining evening, we have all learned much about our history and the present, and possibly ourselves.
Thanks especially to the listeners.  If any Mountain mummies are feeling the urge to join the Holy Order after hearing our tale, welcome all!

Sorry I didn't vote in time guys.  There was really nice work on the myths - although I'm surprised there weren't more entries (like I'm one to talk).  Thanks for sponsoring this contest SI-Mocs!  Very generous!

Mikel - I really like your tower - nice use of... whatever that round gray piece is.  I didn't see an individual post, hence the commenting here.

Thanks rogueang! The round gray pieces are Dark Bluish Gray Wheel 81.6 x 15 Motorcycle from the Clone Turbo Tank. I didn't post a thread for this yet as I am still not 100% satisfied with it... mostly the landscaping I think. Its one of those projects that I like the basic design elements but the details are not quite up to par so I keep tinkering with. It is my policy not to post a MOC until I am 100% satisfied with it but I wanted to do something for the Myth contest and that was what I had planned to use for the contest, I just wasn't able to complete it to my satisfaction within the time alotted. In fact it might make a reapearance (however with a few modifications or unmodifications) in Challenge 3 to once again support the story.
