Or a reverse Mad Libs where the judges give 5 random words and the writers come up with a ten sentence story with 5 blanks that we have to guess where the random words fit.
Creative insanity.

Nice! It's been ages since my last round of Sbil Dam!

So, a 4-way tie for first place? Or does a certain contest organizer have to take the unenviable step of breaking a tie? I think the close vote shows what a great variety there was. Thanks for some great reads, everyone who submitted!

Absolutely awesome reads all around! And with Cheerio's constructive critiques and the enthusiasm abounding about...it's been great.

So who won?? Will there be a Write OFF? Will this be like a RIFF OFF? Will there be singing and possible dancing? I vote 'yes' of course, but then someone around here may want to lead this into a BARDtastic contest and that'd be a whole new challenge and series of threads. And I'm not looking at anyone in particular. At all.

So, where do we go from here?

Write off or Riff off?
Try Bardic Challenge Supreme?
Nay, haiku I say!

Here's a D&D themed word jumble mini-game, while we wait for the contest results. Answers are in the spoiler below.

Instructions: Unscramble the italicized word to complete the clue.

1) His guildmates mocked the young thief for his inadequate genitlas.
2) The feast got much juicier when the artificer offered the chef her magic braest.
3) The orcish marauders fell back before the monk's flurry of siht.
4) When his rage subsided, the barbarian realized he had strained his pensi.
