[Bards] A Question of Timing in Elfsea

Hi there,

The five minute limit doesn't bother me too much, although there are some 
really good pieces that simply couldn't be done in that time. I'm a little 
surprised a title bard competition for a large barony is only one round, 
but like Martha said, it's probably a time constraint thing.

BTW, when is Springfaire?
