Please thank Nattick, Grin, Geryon, Staria and the AM Daily, citizens of Djelibeybi, Fole and the Illuminated Teapot, and Ixtlan of the Tanglefoot Trading Company for the lovely monetary donations!

Also thank Nut, Frazyl, and Dextar for donating some prizes, too! Without them... I would probably be in a bigger mess than I am now :p"

Performances

The performances presented at the trials are recorded here per category in the order presented at the trials.

Mocking competition

Every witch was invited to perform a mock which would inspire the mocked to greater efforts.

Almarna's godbothering mock

Elementalist Almarna Tiaam squints critically at Minister Adyton Veridicus.

Elementalist Almarna Tiaam puts the evil eye on Minister Adyton Veridicus.

Elementalist Almarna Tiaam loudly says: You call that godbothering, Adyton?  You call yourselves Godbotherers? I'm surprised we are not standing in the middle of a thunderstorm right now, with lighting coming down left, right and center! That is not godbothering. It's much more likely to offend the gods! You really have to be more devout and reverential if you don't want to end up as a smoking pile.

Minister Adyton Veridicus looks determined to try harder.

Dirka's watching mock

Dirka squints critically at Black Caya HikosaSan.

Dirka puts the evil eye on Black Caya HikosaSan.

Dirka loudly exclaims with a D'reg accent: You call that watching, Caya?  That is not watching. Our Sssld watches things very carefully, unlike you. You may as well blunder around with your eyes closed for all the watching you did. Sergeant Detritus could be in front of you pounding you with his giant rocky fists and you wouldn't even notice because you are that bad at watching!

Black Caya HikosaSan looks determined to try harder.

Dirka's dodging mock

Dirka loudly exclaims with a D'reg accent: You call that dodging, Caya?  That's about as dodgy as Nanny Ogg trying to dodge a pint of scumble! That's getting right in the way of sharp things that is! You're supposed to dodge out of the way you daft bugger!

Black Caya HikosaSan looks determined to try harder.

Frazyl's watching mock

Literate Frazyl squints critically at Unlucky Charlie.

Literate Frazyl puts the evil eye on Unlucky Charlie.

Literate Frazyl loudly exclaims: You call that watching, Unlucky Charlie?  That watching is just awful. What, you think you're all safe and sound standing there like a blind bug about to be squished by a giant hand? You can't even begin to see the fangs of the tiny invisible demons making two thirds of the people in Howondaland die horribly from internal injury, and that's only halfway across the disc! Why, even Susan Sto Helit would right now have finished a long while ago counting the spots on their impossibly sharp claws (861 756 159 158 billions) and gotten a good way through beating the invasion by the Auditors of Reality! Awww, don't cry Charlie, it'll only make your sight worse. Alright, I'll give you a hint: keep your eyes open and ooooo watch out for that huge hand-shaped thing heading right for you!

Unlucky Charlie looks determined to try harder.

Frazyl's abjuring mock

Literate Frazyl loudly asks: You call that abjuring, Unlucky Charlie?  Are you trying to *help* me curse you? No? Are you sure? Then make your abjuring do a better job protecting you! I know that's a lot to ask but if you let anyone just waltz through you with impunity you'll be scryed, charmed, burned, choked, animated, convoked, bound, enchanted, evoked, earthed, banished, channelled, soaked, summoned, cursed and more before you know what hit you! Why, even Rincewind was better than you at abjuring and the only way he managed to survive so long is to constantly run away from anything and everything and you know how mangy and miserable that left him? Do you really want to endure that too or do you think you can bear to work a *little* bit on yourself?

Unlucky Charlie looks determined to try harder.

Tricks freestyle 1-2 stages

This category allows witches to submit short tricks for all to see.

The shorter trick length allows wet hennes to enter more easily without being outstaged.

Magdalena's My Storm Dragon

You gaze into the crystal ball and see:

Magdalena whistles a strange melodic dirge, each note hanging in the electric air.
Magdalena holds out her hand as an enchanting blue dragon dives from the sky and shoots by her, lightning bolts crackling from her fingertips to his body.
She smiles, electricity crackling in her eyes.

Dirka's Huggly Kittens

You gaze into the crystal ball and see:

Dirka watches as cute fuzzy spangly kittens wobble into the area, drinking freshly brewed beer, and huggle everybody lovingly.
Dirka applauds the kittens for their delightful spangly huggly performance.

Qiuyan's Brew A Plot

You gaze into the crystal ball and see:

As Qiuyan waves her hands, a tiny stage appears in the air! Three witches pop into existence; a thunderstorm brews around them. They look drenched. Silly witches! Meanwhile, a general hatches a plot to kill the king.
Qiuyan waves her hands about. The witches meet again, waving strange ingredients they intend to brew. Crazy hags! The king is murdered; the general reigns; the kingdom descends into darkness, tormented by guilt and suspicion!
Qiuyan's hands move even faster! The scenes flash by: armies gather; a forest besieges a castle; battle ensues! The evil general is killed! Peace is restored; the witches look glum. The actors take a bow. The tiny stage fades into nothingness. Phew!

Witch Trials 2010! There's still time!

Note #20 by Caya at Sun Feb 21 22:24:51 2010 [EST] on board witchesguild

Wotchers all! This is a repost since it is near scrolling off! This also includes the update about mocks! This is not limited to only skilled witches! Newbies can also participate!
Witch Trials are set for Saturday, February 27 at 21:00 GMT! They will be held in Lancre Town where Charlie hangs in his lonesome (awww). Here are the time conversions for some time zones:
Pacific time (ex: California) - 13:00 or 1:00PM on Saturday, Feb 27, 2010
EST (ex: New York, New Jersey) - 16:00 or 4:00PM on Saturday, Feb 27, 2010
GMT (ex: London) - 21:00 or 9:00PM on Saturday, Feb 27, 2010
Sydney, Australia - 8:00AM on Sunday, Feb 28, 2010
So! If you have an entry, please mudmail me by the 22th confirming you want to make something (give specific details of categories) and the 26th for the name of the trick/fruitbat and skill for mock with the rest of the details needed (see below). I can take last minute entries, but please don't force me to do so many last minute ones. :(
We have many amazing sponsors that I huggle lots and lots for not making me empty my bank account! Please thank Nattick, Grin, Geryon, Staria and the AM Daily, citizens of Djelibeybi, Fole and the Illuminated Teapot, and Ixtlan of the Tanglefoot Trading Company for the lovely monetary donations! Also thank Nut, Frazyl, and Dextar for donating some prizes, too!
This year's trials will be somewhat different from the previous trials. We will have 3 competitions!

Tricks (only 1 freestyle trick and 1 themed trick max!)

Freestyle 1-2 stages
Freestyle 3+ stages
Theme (any amount of stages)
---This year's theme is: Valentine's Day

Mocking Competition (2 mock submissions max!)

Freestyle (there were not enough submissions, so I changed the category)
Only rule is that you need to mock a valid skill. You can't just mock something like Caya-ing or something.

Best-Dressed Fruitbat

There are no categories and it will be freestyle. Even though it says best-dressed, it can also be what they are carrying, their name, etc. It is possible that a person will vote based on everything they see!
I am aware there are witches who believe in only having naked bats, but it is all for good fun! You can even submit your naked bat if you want! We shall just have a competition where people will vote for the bat they like the most (traditionalists can vote on traditional nakedness)!


Your name, the competition you are entering, and, depending on the competition:
Tricks: name of the trick, what category you are entering in, summary of what your trick is about
Mocks: what category, what skill you are mocking
Fruitbat: name of fruitbat
There may be changes in the competition due to how many we have that participates this year. Please stay tuned for updates! If this gives you any motivation, the plan is that first place will get at least 10 royals IN ADDITION to an item of choice! We will go by order of who wins to get the prizes. Also, applicants will still get a reward if they do not win!
