**__Bard-Off Set Up__**
Contestants must use song scrolls that they’ve made themselves to be eligible for prizes. This does not mean it needs to be an original song just that you coded the score you want to use. All scrolls must have the contestant’s name as the composer and visible chords. Song scrolls are now checked across the in-game bard board and elsewhere after the contest as copied songs are not allowed. MML code will never be distributed without permission of composer! Prizes will be given out after scrolls are approved. Freeplay songs (not made by you, but you wanna play anyway) can be played as intermission between contest performances!
**Prize Distribution: Bard-off (no category/all jam/all solo)**
+ First Prize: NX Prize, Tuning kit, Instrument, Band pet, Instrument dye,
2m gold, composition item, judge spot
+ Second Prize: NX Prize, Tuning kit, Instrument, Band pet, Instrument dye,
1m gold, composition item
+ Third Prize: Instrument dye, 500k gold
+ Runners up: Instrument dye, 200k gold
**Pet, instrument and instrument dye prizes can be chosen from a pool**
If there is one person in a given category, the “no category” placement will be used
Participants are encouraged to ask for critique or explanation of why their song is ranked where it is if curious.
