Aprilius is soon upon us, and by the time it departs, we must have chosen a new genre for the coming Joust.

Winter is on its way out, the crocuses are blooming, and the time has come to sharpen our quills for the next round. As always, we vote on a new genre, hear the bragging of those who dare not enter, listen to the mighty crowing of others, then by the Kalends of October submit our pieces for the Voting Scroll.

The genres are:

Poetry (rhyming)
Historic fiction (Sepia Joust VII)
Fantasy IIII
Poetry (prose)
Science Fiction (Sepia Joust IV)
Comedy/Parody (Sepia Joust V)
Criminal (in old days) (Sepia Joust VI)
Romantic / Romantic Adventure
Documentary
Advisory
Horror (Sepia Joust III)
Thriller
Brief History (Sepia Joust I)
Diary / Journal (Sepia Joust II)

Place your votes. The sooner we decide on a genre, the more time we will have to prepare a fitting piece.

Ok, so just trying to decide on what to vote for.

Now could i get a tad bit of explanation on the categories of Documentary and Advisory? Like is it kind of like our history articles for the Documentary category?

Advisory is, to me, Gameplay advice or similar, while documentary is a running narrative of a (current) event or news-type article.

However, if you all decide differently, or have different ideas, let them be heard.

Terikel, are the texts in the advisory section supposed to be just plain gameplay advice texts, or article-like texts with accompanying pictures?

BTW, regarding the Joust genre, I'm between Poetry(prose) and Advisory...

Beats me. The category/genre was added several years ago by popular acclaim.

Make of it what you want. I am thinking it would be a sort of article for the site, though.

I also vote for Fantasy although I don't know how much time I'll have to write a new story, so I may submit one I did a while back for it.

I shall ride the tide and vote Fantasy as well. I actually have an idea for historical fantasy that's been brewing in my head for a long time, but have yet to commit to paper (or rather Word document). I may submit a sample of it for this Joust if my choice should carry the day.

I too shall cast my vote for Fantasy.

There, the nail in the coffin. Unanimous even.


Submissions will open in September. That gives anyone wishing to enter ample time to put together a good tale.

For those needing a bit of direction-
Fantasy entails elements fo the following: magic, mythical races such as elves and dwarves, legendary events, and frikking dragons!

So, Fantasy it is then... Fortunately, I finish school in June (after the Panhellenics), so I hope I can finally enter the Joust (as well as finish my unfinished story).

Under a week.

I have been spending much time traveling the provinces of Tamriel, gathering more experiences upon which to spin tales.

My tale shall rock thy world.

Maybe.

Yours was an awesome write, Gen'ral. I'm already a fan of your "The King's Own" and its world, and this was very much a tasty sidedish from the same banquet of Arbatrosian action.

Just frikkin awesome!
