    Grand Tournament
    Welcome Summoners!


    Today it is time for a new event as part of our wonderful Anniversary Celebrations!
    Since we have already noticed that there are many artists playing the game, we've decided to see how creative you guys can be with words! Time to put down the pencils and pick up the pens... Again! Can you come up with some good puns? Are you witty enough? Can you write something creative?

    It is time for a SECOND long awaited writing contest!

    For this contest you'll have to write a Poem about your favorite EU-Exclusive Unit(s)! Seeing that these contests surround our beloved (and sometimes not so beloved) Brave Fontier RPG's second Anniversary, we thought it would be a great idea to look back at all the different Exclusives our server has been introduced to over the past two years.

    What do we want you to write?

    Something funny, punny, witty, ... You can also choose to go for a more serious mood! We just want you to be creative! A poem about Heinrich's luscious manes (I actually had to google the spelling of that word '._.), a haiku describing the sadness that befell Magena when she found out her family had been slaughtered... The choice is completely yours! However it is important that your entry is original and completely yours! That's because we're looking for creativity and fairness with this little contest.

    Important: Keep your poem short! There is another contest going on where you can write big stories instead, but this contest requires you to create a short poem! Find the other contest over here (http://forum.bravefrontier-rpg.com/...ament-writing-contest-lore-fanfiction.108206/)

    Rules:
    • The contest is open for entries until 22:00 CEST 27-6-2016
    • Only 1 entry per Summoner allowed
    • You need to enter your Ingame Name & Summoner ID in your post
    • Once you've made your entry you cannot edit that post or we'll see it as cheating!
    • Be creative and think out of the box! ^^
    • You are allowed to write in English only to be eligible! However, if you wish to write in another language, you have to put an English translation below your piece to enter in the competition.
    How will the winners be chosen?
    • When the deadline has been reached, all players will be able to vote for their favorite entries! Out of all the votes, the most popular 3 entries will receive a fantastic reward! When voting, pick your personal TOP 3 Entries, and make sure to leave your User ID so we can enter your name in the Lottery! Details about how to vote will be communicated later.
    • All voters for the Top 3 Community Picks will automatically be entered in a lottery! More information about this near the end of the contest!
    Rewards:
    • First Place: 1 Zodiacs Unit of Choice, 3 Gems, 1 Mystery Frog, 1 Trident Key, 1 Imp Arton - And TWO points on the Grand Leaderboard!
    • Second Place: 2 Gems, 1 Mystery Frog, 1 Trident Key, 1 Burst Emperor - And ONE point on the Grand Leaderboard!
    • Third Place: 1 Gem, 1 Mystery Frog, 1 Trident Key, 1 Golden God - And ONE point on the Grand Leaderboard!

    ^^ Have a good time, and make something beautiful out of your entry!

    Good luck, Summoners!

    You may be interested... And there's another writing contest (in prose), check it out !
    But @Gholayat , does the English translation of the poem has to rhyme ? In the engish translation you cannot have the same number of syllabe, or the same "melody", "music" in the poem, which is very important... Poetry is in my opinion impossible to translate, so do we have to make the poem in french and put a translation in english for understanding, or should we do the poem directly in english (with rhymes and everything) ? It's hard to write in english for some people...

    The answers to Sir Poulpator interest me very much. I could easily be understand by english's people, but I'm not sure I could write a good poem if it's not in my language. But if needed, I could try.

    It most likely will not rhyme, but it is the solution I chose to allow people to submit entries in languages other than English. The judging will be done by players and English is the language most people can speak on the forum. So translating to English will ofcourse mean part of your rhyme will be lost in the translation, but it is this or only allowing English. That is the limitation attached to making an international writing contest unfortunately. The reason why this contest did not happen months ago is the constant struggle to find a solution to the language barrier, and frankly... there is no perfect solution. Trust me, I went over all possible solutions and this is the best one. That is also why the rules are not going to change.

    So everyone, I wish you good luck and do your best! :) The rewards are worth it!

    Hello guys, Im not by any means a poet, but I thought Id give this a shot. :P I hope you guys enjoy it...

    Beyond the reach of men's desire
    beyond the cowards, fools and knaves
    to forge a king that all admire
    a treasure waits beneath the waves

    on moonlit nights, so goes the story
    amidst the songs of nightingales
    pearl crusted hands safeguard the glory
    the shinging blade of hoary tales

    In silent slumber deep below
    further even than starlight
    amidst the depths that burn aglow
    a maiden rests all clad in white

    She holds a promise to her chest
    that only she can ever make
    to he who may surpass her test
    and from her grasp this power take

    this test may not be heard or spoken
    in men's hearts the answer lies
    but once its passed, her smile awoken
    aloft the waves she'll hold the prize

    Be not a coward, thief or liar
    only the truthful can succeed
    If peace and justice you desire
    to you her gift she will concede

    So should you hear a nightingale
    and see your shadow by the moon
    and
    Viviane's test you do not fail
    Excalibur shall be your boon.

    Vargas is red,
    Selena is blue,
    open the gates,
    and carf'lly walk through

    When this world full of dangers and monsters appears,
    you should preapare yourself and fight against your fears.

    Equip your runes and show them your skills,
    with units like Arthur (*) and go for the kill.

    But be 'ware of the mightiest unit of all,
    if you'll face Mandragora it will be your fall.

    All hail allmighty Mandragora that is,
    with his minions like Memetes :memetes: or mighty Ziz! :ZIZ:

    That night you wanted to sleep besides me again;
    There was a storm, and you were scared like a child,
    And your eyes, your face, full of anguish and pain
    Reminded me when you for the first time smiled.


    I caressed your long hair, pressed your head against my chest;
    For a while I did not feel hate, only sweet
    Thoughts, and hopes, and a dream too long suppressed,
    And fear of never feeling again your heat.


    “Fair mother, how do you know I will not die?
    I hear Death’s whispers, and She has my father’s face;
    She told me to hug you and tell my goodbye
    For her scythe has my name, and this time won’t grace”.


    “You won’t fall!” I cried, knowing it was untruth;
    Now you rest silent (maybe just half asleep?)
    As water washes your wounds; I watch the youth
    I gave birth to, and death so eagerly reapt.

    “Mordred here rests, by his father Arthur slain”;
    The only ones to weep are my eyes, and the rain.

    NeoAvalon's Almighty

    He was chosen through victory
    He was a mystery
    He was the King of joy
    He was daddy's beloved boy

    One would lead the Kingdom

    One would seek for freedom
    One carries Excalibur's glance
    One carries the destructive lance

    "I am the almighty !"

    "I am the almighty !"
    "I will fight for NeoAvalon greatness !"
    "I will fight for NeoAvalon greatness !"
    He was known as Arthur
    He was know as Mordred

    Here's my entry for the poetry contest ! It's a bit long, but it's still poetry.
    The poem has been written directly in English, I hope there's not to much misspellings.
    I didn't have many idea for the title, so I have chosen the most important word of the poem.
    It's based on an exclusive unit that everyone love, or hate, but still covet...

    Fate
    No one could know where I come from,
    No one could know what I'll become,
    When I will cross the golden door.
    But it's, for us, a huge honor.
    Like my sisters, we're all alike,
    Nothing in me that you can't like.
    Sometime the Gods call one of us,
    She disappear through the strange gate.
    No one wonder, no one discuss,
    Because we know this is our fate.

    This is my turn, I am ready.
    The shiny light is warm and fresh.
    As I proceed I feel so free,
    A thrill travels trough my whole flesh.
    To accomplish my destiny
    Is my mission, I can't regress !

    There were no Gods, he was alone
    The Summoner who made me come.
    He looked at me, made me his own.
    Tiny and green, under my crown,
    I was shivering, under his look.

    It's not written in any book
    The real fate of the others,
    What happened to my sisters.
    No great rewards nor glorious life
    Awaited us beyond this path.
    Not bound to serve, but to be used,
    In sacrifice, I will be fused.

    I am nothing but just a tool,
    I am a slave used by a fool.

    The ritual slowly begin,
    My blood boiling under my skin.
    No one will know what I have seen,
    Nor remember that I have been.
    I watch the Summoner, insane :
    "Come on, you feel Normal again ? "
