(Being stuck in that completely unrelated thread about a wedding was
making things confusing. So here's a new thread.)

The Project continues to grow. Chum more than made good on his pledge...
he doubled it to 20 pies! We'll keep on collecting donations for several
more days. But WHAT WE REALLY NEED NOW are folks willing to commit to
being exhibitors. This is your big chance to be a contributing artist on
a history-making event! All the donations in the world won't get
hundreds of pies to the Meadow. We need volunteers.

To volunteer, send a message to:

puddleby_p...@mac.com

State how many pies you're volunteering to exhibit. Also mention if you
think you'll needs funds for storage of non-pie items. Include a working
return address.

And now for the List... 74 sponsors and counting:

Good work everyone, keep the donations coming! It brings a tear to this
thoom's bulbous eyes to see everyone pitching in and banding together
under such a noble cause. :~)

I wonder what it would cost to get the pieman to bring his pies over the
the exhibit area, so that we don't have to carry them. I'd gladly pay an
extra 5 coins for a pie sold right on the Bard Field.

In reality, we won't be able to buy that many. There have already been
costs incurred for bank fees and Koppi announcements. Depending on how
much empty pack space exhibitors have, a significant amount of money may
need to be shelled out for storage fees. We'll probably burn a few pies
perfecting a revolutionary Automated Rapid Exhibition spell, as well.

But it's a big pile of pies, no question.

Prue.

Having our art supplies delivered would be handy. Having them delivered
to the Bard Field would be less handy, since the exhibition is being
held in the Meadow.

I second that motion!

It would save us all a lot of time if we were able to get the pies while
in the bard field, rather than having to run all the way to town.

Though, I don't suppose Lob Dertart would be able to take terribly many
there either. Maybe he can get someone to pull a cart full of them to
the Bards field? Hopefully the Bards won't mind..

You're right! The events of the day ARE taking place in the meadow. I
guess that means that a certain event that won't have catering this time
either, won't have music this time either, either.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Who's the townsfellow that we'd have to bribe to bring his wares? Does
he get along with that Elendil guy who's already set up shop there?

The day of the Puddleby Pie Project exhibition is just about upon us!

We've had a number of new contributers, including a new Diamond
Sponsor... Janus! Thanks to all.

And a very special exile gave what few coins he had to the Project... my
nephew, and Sleipnir's very own son... DESTROYER OF WORLDS! Bless that
beautiful, beautiful boy.

Exhibit distribution will commence about 4 puddlehours before the
exhibition time. That'd be around 11AM, PDT by the Emperor's clock. The
distribution point is currently secret... the Project has received
unconfirmed threats to disrupt distribution. If you want to be a
contributing artist, just get to town. Instructions will be released
over sunstone. You need not be a sponsor to receive art supplies.

Sadly, Sleipnir delivers his regrets that his wedding party will be
unable to assist in exhibit transportation. Alas.

For any who are interested, a simple Rapid Pie Exhibition spell is
available at:

<http://homepage.mac.com/puddleby_pie_project/pieSpell>

To use it, simply type "/pie <number> <name>" where <number> is the
number of pies you'd like to exhibit, and <name> is the name of the
exile you'd like to exhibit them to. This will treat the exile to an
artistic explosion of pie art, at the rate of about 4 exhibits per
second. Make sure you put a space between <number> and <name>. "/pie ?"
will remind you of these instructions.

We'll continue to accept donations of coins to be used for the Puddleby
Pie Project Legal Defense Fund. There's bound to be a letigious art
hater or two.

Yours,
Prue

Well, the Puddleby Pie Project went off without a hitch. Unless you
count a massive ether explosion at the end as a "hitch". We choose to
view it as cosmic applause for the greatest cooperative art orgy in the
history of the world.

Babajaga and Sleipnir served as stunning mixed pie media sculptures.
Prue was also the canvas for the work of several contributing artists.
(And don't think we'll forget it!) Sor offered an unexpected entry not
in pie form... his inspired and inspiring "Dead Scarmis and Swamp Feral
with Chain". Experts suggest that this last bit of creative genius was
to blame for the big explosion. Most everybody else blames Malkor.

Visionstones of the event will be made available soon. IF YOU HAVE
VISIONSTONES YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE, SEND THEM TO:

<puddleby_p...@mac.com>

And now for more exciting news... In the words of HGM, "It's not over
yet."

That's right! The Puddleby Pie Project is the event that keeps on...
eventing. We had a little money left over from the pie fund. With some
added coins generously donated by the ever-charitable Sisters of
Benevolence, we've arranged for a CASH PRIZE and a space in the main
hall of the Puddleby Museum of Exile Art. To what end, you ask?...

We are pleased to announce:

THE PUDDLEBY PIE PROJECT COMMEMORATIVE ART CONTEST

Here's the skinny...

WHAT IS THE CONTEST?: The winning entrant will submit the best piece of
original art memorializing the spirit of the great Puddleby Pie Project
exhibition. Deciding what that means is left as an exercise for contest
entrants.

WHO CAN ENTER?: The contest is open to all exiles.

WHAT DOES THE WINNER GET?: The winner will receive their choice of A)
3000 coins, or B) A really super 21 pie salute. They also get to have
their work displayed in the Museum for the rest of time.

WHAT IS SECOND PRIZE?: People laughing and pointing at you.

WHO PICKS THE WINNER?: The winning entry will be chosen by a vote of the
official Puddleby Pie Project sponsors. Votes will be weighted based on
sponsorship level. Diamond Sponsors will get 5 votes each. Platinum
Sponsors get 4. Gold 3. Silver 2. All the rest get 1 vote. Anonymous
sponsors, if we have their names, will get to vote just like everybody
else. In the event of a tie, the Sisters of Benevolence will take the
cash prize and go on a nice vacation.

WHEN DOES THE CONTEST END?: Dunno. Later.

HOW BIG SHOULD MY SUBMISSION BE?: Prue thinks submission in any form is
just dandy. But that's not what you wanted to know. We are waiting for
word from Musea on the dimensions of the space. We'll let you know as
soon as we can.

CAN I ENTER MORE THAN ONE PIECE?: Sure. Why the heck not?

WHERE DO I SEND SUBMISSIONS?: Send all submissions or inquiries to
<puddleby_p...@mac.com>.

That is all.

Yours,
Prue

UPDATE: Ideally, contest submissions should fit in a 150 x 150 pixel
space. Submissions that don't fit in a 175 x 175 space get displayed on
Junko's heap. Artists should use the System Palette for all colors.

Yours,
Prue.
