Topic Subject: Sepia Joust VI- Whodunnit? Discussion Thread
posted 16 September 2012 04:02 EDT (US)   
The Sixth Sepia Joust is hereby opened. There will be two scrolls initially opened, this one and the Submissions Scroll.

Please note that the Submissions Scroll is reserved for the Submissions. Only the Submissions. Nothing but the Submissions. Solely the Submissions. I think that is clear now.

ALL OTHER comments, praise, cajoling, complaining, honoring, etc are to be placed on this scroll. Only this Scroll. Nowhere but on this Scroll. Solely on this scroll. I think that is clear now.

So... begin!

My entry will probably be going up on Sunday, Tuesday at the latest.

Who else has the intestinal fortitude and courage to enter the Joust?

It might not have been mentioned earlier but the Submissions Scroll have a definite shelf-life.

It is most likely this one will close in two weeks- around the end of the first week of October.

Extensions are available for those who absolutely need them.

I'd like to wish good luck to anyone who takes part in the Joust. I'll read all the stories and take part into voting, but I don't have enough time to write or post a tale. BTW, when will your story be posted Terikel. It's already Monday...

Maybe tomorrow, maybe later, but definitely before closing.

I dislike being the first one to post. I will do so if needed, but I would rather not 'scare' away any potential challengers with the beauty of my tale.

(I do so love being modest)

So, what happens if you're the sole contestant, Terikel?

Then I win.

It will be a cheap victory, and a waste of a good story (I could have written something like Hamish was lynched for his awful singing, but the judge declared that 'self defense' after hearing testimony that the man could not carry a note), but a victory none the less.

I'd rather earn it, to be honest.

I am thinking of putting my entrant off until Friday.

(I don't want to scare off any potential challengers.)

In that case I could give it a go this weekend, just to make it more difficult for you, Terikel, if no one else pops in. However, I don't put my finger on it...

Unfortunately, I have two tests on Monday so I won't be able to write a story...

Submissions stay open for another two weeks.

Study first (and good luck!), write later, if you can.

There may well be other entrants- back in April/May there were a few others who said they would. Now we see if they spoke true, or were likewise hindered in fulfilling their pledges.

An excellent story, Terikel, worthy of the Joust! Excellent choice of time period and characters, BTW.

An excellent story indeed and a shame that it seems to go unchallenged.
I'm glad Hamish didn't end up singing that awful song though!

Submissions will stay open until 13 October.

If you plan to enter, do it soon.

Or at least say so. An extension will be granted for those needing a week more time.

Two days.

Anyone got the balls to put up a challenger? Or shall this tale win by default?

A shame. It is a good one, even if I say so myself (well, others said it too)

Submissions closed.

Sadly, only one entrant- me.

On the other hand, voting will be simple this time.

Boo! called the giant.

The people fled.

The giant smiled. One word, and victory...

The victor of the Sepia Joust VI is Terikel Grayhair.
