It’s the opening day of the 2014 Joust and Realms Faire. The trumpets are blaring, the crowds are cheering, the hooves of the horses hammer like drums. Huzzah!
1. Every knight can be cheered for all five days. To find the special words that score points for the knight you’re rooting for, visit the knight:Lady Margaret ~ The Black Queen ~ Dame TF Walsh ~ Ninja Knight ~ Sir Dragonstone ~ Lady Esta ~ Sir Smitty ~ Sir Mist
2. Each cheerer may leave a comment 3x a day. Any comments beyond that will not count in scoring points for the knight. A cheerer may cheer for different knights, but still only 3x.
3. Comments will be cut off each day at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
4. The joust ends at 10:00 p.m. November 14th. All joust winners – cheerers, the champion knight – will be announced here on November 19th. Prizes up for grab daily will change. Daily winners will be picked via Random.org.
Today’s Featured Knights:
Sir Mist hails from the land of mists, that elusive place from which all stories and writers are born. Ooo! He must wield some mighty magic.
A big Grammercy, (thanks) goes to Mary today for accepting my offer to participate in the 2014 jousting tournament. Below you will find a small discussion of the many feats capable by my honourable knight, Sir Mist and links to my published works. Also there is a peak at a new dystopian, sci-fi novel I am working on, which I hope to release in the latter half of next year,
Also, make sure you use any of the highlighted words among this text in your comments, to help Sir Mist gain points in the joust and as a gift for taking part in this tournament, just by leaving your comments on M. Pax’s site, one person will be chosen by the mighty Mary to be given one ebook copy of both my published works.
The mighty Sir Mist is known to have a weakness for the ladies, a damsel in distress he is unable to ignore and will go out of his way to appease their dilemma.
Rumour has suggested he has influence over the elements, as many a time in the jousting arena, a strange brown coloured mist has been known to spread from the thickets, causing his opponents distress and giving him an advantage!
No one really knows whether Sir Mist fights for the side of the righteous or if deep in his heart of hearts he is truly an evil soul.
There are also whispers among the peasants that Sir Mist is not from this world, but has ventured here from the stars. Surely the rumours cannot be true? Could it be possible?
No one knows the true answer. All that is known is this dark knight is a mighty opponent who can call upon the elements to gain power to his advantage. To be able to watch his mighty feats in person, one would be mesmerised by his courage and amazed by his abilities to succeed.
The might of mist doesn’t seem to daunt Ninja Knight. It’s hard to see him out there. He and his charger move in a blur.
Ninja Knight says:
Why should you cheer for me as a knight? Let me list my knightly feats…
Wrote three books that became award-winning, best-sellers (And I only wanted to write one)
Founded the Insecure Writer’s Support Group
Co-Host the A to Z Challenge
Created a Ninja army and a mass of Ninja clones
Rocking guitarist (So is Mini-Alex)
Almost reached the end of NetFlix (That is a knightly feat, isn’t it?)
And I tamed the heart of a Dragon! (That would be Father Dragon Al)
Now, who’s your Knight?
(Since Ninja Knight forgot to post his magical words, I’ll post them here: Ninja Knight, enow (means: enough), and CassaStar. He earns points for these words used in the comments.)
Mist versus Blur! Huzzah!
