Yes, thank you. Hello and welcome, all, to the Mistral Jamboree Poetry Contest!

I am your host, Swiatla. I am proud and excited to open this year's contest. This event is a wonderful opportunity to hear from poets all across the land.

As the poets prepare themselves, let's meet the judges and review the rules.

The spotlight changes to the judge's table, illuminating three dragons. Each waves or gently bows in response to the crowd's attention. A cacophony of whistles is heard; a Wind Flight sound of appreciation. I think.. yes, a cowbell is heard among them.. Swiatla covers his mouth with a chuckle.

Now, now. Hold onto your enthusiasm. We're just meeting the judges, you haven't even seen our prizes yet! We'll get to those in a moment. For now it is my pleasure to introduce our judges...

First among our judges is the lovely Paintminion!:
A poet of wispy gusts, she is open minded. She is not a fan of Rap or Gore, but enjoys juggling words and wants all the poets here today to know how proud she is of all of you. It takes courage to present your work to the sky. Share and have a fun time!


Secondly, we have the regal Layz!:
Layz loves nothing more than fantastic wording and noble syntax, with a dash of whimsy and word play! She may seem haughty and snobbish at times, but she truly enjoys hearing all the lovely poems presented! Be daringly creative! Let your imagination flourish! As they say, the sky's the limit.


Finally, our last judge, the suave Scrivello!:
Scrivello is very excited to be here, but even more excited to be able to hear all of your fantastic entries! They really enjoy poems on the positive side, but all other poems are just as good! As long as you have something interesting, enjoyable, and a touch "windy", they will love it!

Ahem, sorry that was awful. Do I get a prize for worst poem?



Paintminion laughs and answers: "No! But tell them what they can win!"

Now are we ready to hear some poetry?

Cheers, applause, whistle, bells, laughs, and roars! My, what a noise dragons can make!

I will take that as a, "yes!" Poets, Judges, Audience: Have fun! Let's begin with poet Number 1...

March 30 ~~

The judges suddenly put their heads together, whispers and laughter is all that can be heard, when suddenly Paintminion gestures for Swiatla to come over and whispers in Swiatla's ear.

Swiatla jumps back up on stage and gestures for silence...

The judges would like to award the bravery and efforts of our First Poet! @Toothless, we present to you an Iron Chest, a Blue Warrior Haori, and 2 Wisp Fruit.*

Thank you for stepping up to be first on stage!


*used at Swipp's stand

An assisting dragon comes out from backstage with a scroll and hands it to Swiatla. He reads it and thanks the dragon.

Looks like we had two contestants enter at about the same time, but someone had a little stage fright. That being said, as host I'd like to award an Iron Chest and 2 Wisp Fruits to @BeingOfNature 's Galapagos as well! We look forward to all poems to come!

I'd also like to make a reminder to review the rules! We ask that all poems have a title, are at least 4 lines, and that you ping our judges and host. Thank you.


We LOVE that people are getting into it and role playing! However, that is NOT a requirement to enter a poem.

This just in! Our first prize package is now complete! The winning poet will welcome this little fellow into his/her/their lair:

March 31

The judges converse among themselves reviewing the entries. They nod in agreement before calling over Swiatla. After a moment of talking and a few scratches on a scroll he returns to the MIC.

Attention everyone! We've heard some great poems so far. The judges would like to make an important clarification. Each individual may enter a only single poem. We appreciate your creativity and willingness to share your writing, but please no collections. Poems entered prior to this clarification will be exempt since the rules were unclear.

We would also like to add that if you have a question or questions, feel free to ask.

Thank you!
