A word about our Bardic Championship competition, from our current
Lady Gwynafel Farleigh:
Hello Gentle Populace!
Lords and Ladies, Yule is once again upon us, and as such, my
Bardic Champion of Hartwood is coming to an end. This means there
must be a
Competition to see who can take the position from me!
I call upon all that would challenge me to attend this great event
forward your Filks to inspire the populace to vote for you!
What is a Filk you ask? A Filk is an old tradition of taking a
and put your OWN words to it.
An example is Row, Row, Row your boat. New words: Chop, chop, chop
foe….. you get the idea.
1. The tune must be one that is recognizable.
2. You must perform at least 3 verses
3. It must have the word Hartwood in it.
Do you think you can take the Bardic Candle from me? I DARE you to
I hope to see you there! Please contact me at email@example.com by November
