BATTLE OF THE BARDS - Heat 1
IT'S TIME TO FACE THE MUSIC! VOTING IS NOW OPEN! This is the first of five heats for EN World's brand new song competition, BATTLE OF THE BARDS. Throughout October, more than twenty singers and songwriters submitted songs about RPGs. YOU will decide who wins the prize - an animated music video of their own!
Each of the five heats will last for one week. You are encouraged to vote, share the videos, and get your friends to vote. It's simple: the highest number of votes wins. The winners of the five heats will then battle it out in the BATTLE OF THE BARDS FINAL in December.
So, without further ado, here are the contestants in the first heat. Good luck! Feel free to comment on the entries, below.

I've made it halfway through until youtube puked out on all the videos on the page.
I am impressed that Morrus' crew took the time to wrap each song with an intro and animated framing. Nice touch.
I've got my current vote in mind, but I need to finish watching the last 2 vids.

Yeah I'm in love with that song. Will add it to our RPG song collection.

I actually blogged about the recording process for "I Put My Low Stat" here:

My friend Karen sent me the link to the Battle of the Bards because I've been writing songs about my friends' D&D games for about 12 years now. And I have just released a CD of them. So it seemed like a beautiful example of synchronicity.
Also, the Muse campaign I've been running using D&D 3.5 has just hit a point where the players (Having reached 9th level) have decided they want to go somewhere very different in my campaign world than I expected.
It's pretty cool they've decided they want to liberate their colonies from the empire. Unfortunately, the empire has up to now only existed as 'that place beyond the mountains.' So, now I get to create and empire.
I've been having a bit of writers' block. I'm hoping reading the discussion board will help.
Some folks lurk for awhile before siging up. It's cool that you jumped into the contest, and stayed for the discussion.
