...because they aren't listed in Kingdom Law, which was the source of
that list (as stated). Good catch, though. (To the same someone I
called out to earlier: when you edit "reoccurable" out of Kingdom
Law, would you also please add Kingdom Dance and Music Workshop to
the list of recurring events? Thanks.)

The only problem with that (that I realized *after* I suggested a
"Kingdom Bardic Workshop and Eisteddfod") is the one pointed out by
Alden: interference between the activities. Many of the people who
would make the best teachers would also make the best judges or
competitors. At least at Kingdom Dance and Music Workshop, it's
possible to schedule the tracks to minimize interference among them.
And there's no competition during the day; just a ball in the evening.
However, if there were enough bards supporting the event, then that
shouldn't be a major problem.
On the other hand, I'm imagining a "fighter's workshop" running
concurrent with Kingdom Warlord. The workshop would get squashed
flat. Everyone who you'd want to be in it, would be outside on the
Now, if we had some activity going on that didn't compete at all with
the bardic competition... in fact, maybe gave them a venue to which
to perform... like a dinner theater...
What if we held Eisteddfod in the middle of a feast hall filled with
revelers who were there to enjoy the competition?
