A lone warrior approaches, lagging tiredly through the haze and dust of the battle field. All is still behind him, yet he fears there will arise new dangers from the black mists of his horrible foes… the green room.

Tired of only feeling empowered to fight once a month, on that fateful review day, and after braving the war alone for years with little conquest to show for his efforts; he reluctantly, at long last, casts his banner down amongst those who call themselves the Knights of the Green Room. “Perhaps,” says he, “There is strength in numbers. I will join their cause, though I may still wander off in solitude, disquieted by the apparent madness of these few who fight against overwhelming odds and monsters at hand.”

So there he took his oath, and swore by the code of arms to uphold those duties allotted to him. “I will not rest, nor lay down my sword, until there no longer stands any work with less than two reviews. Long live the fellowship!”


Spoiler! :
In other words… I join. Also:

”please use and edit the same post you announced your first 10 reviews in. Just keep a running list, and make new posts when you reach new badges.


Then why on earth are there 26 pages of posts!?!?!
No more countin' dollars... we'll be countin' stars.

Plot updates, we have new knights joining all the time, little posts that are notifications of our review list updates so that Hannah can get to them, news updates, Hannah notifying us of new knights, the list goes on and on.

If we didn't list our reviews all in the same place, we'd have a whole lot more than twenty-six pages in the topic!

Ah yes, sorry. About this:

That would be Knight Eloquent, actually.

Knight Teen finds that she rather enjoys going off on her own, and does so yet again, driving her comrades in arms mindless with worry. She returns within a few days, tired, hungry, and triumphant.

Knights of the Green Room

Upon retiring to her tent, she decides to go through all of her trophies from past battles. When she does so, she discovers this :

work.php?id=103176http://www.youngwriterssociety.com/posting.php?mode=smilies&f=12

She had previously bestowed a GR review on BlackNether12, entitling her to a Fellows-in-Arms.

Furthermore, she has placed wounded/slain ten monsters from the same nest.

Well Squire Lyrical (or is it Squire Rebel?) may I just say welcome to our ranks. Once you have completed and listed (with the links to the review) ten green room reviews, then Knight Hannah will conducted your knighting ceremony.

I'm very sorry for the delay, my Knights! I seem to have gotten the ends of my trousers stuck in a briar patch just outside the field on the way in.
BUT I AM HERE NOW, and that's what counts, right?

So, as I pull the thorns from the rips in my pants, bring your usual penchant for celebration and welcome warmly a new member to our ranks, who fought with honor and knowledge and earned the right to be knighted over a week ago. Man, it was one tough briar.

Knight Eloquent

In addition, all of @HomeschooledTeen 's contributions have been noted and rewarded.

And welcome to the force, Squire Lyrical/Rebel, whichever you choose! I look forward to seeing your first ten reviews and then knighting you!

Now, the Knights stand outside the gates of the Castle, swords and helmets and horses shining, and look up at what feels like crumbling ruins. Ivy smudges the entire front facade.

When the Knights walk tentatively through the impressive front gate, they find the inside no better. Rugs are chewed threw by mice, who sit on top of dining tables like they own the place. Pictures and mirrors have all toppled from their hangers and lay scattered on the stone floor. Beds have rotted. Chandeliers have rusted. There are puddles of old rain water in several corners.

In short, it's no place that's fit to live.

Of course, for Knights with such love for literature as the Knights of the Green Room have, they're more concerned with the fact that it appears someone has burned down the library.

What is a headquarters without a library? the Knights cry.

And so, to rectify this terrible situation, the Knights are sponsoring a contest.

In order to receive the new Main Mission Badge for this mission, you must participate in providing each contest entry with a total of three reviews from active Knights. You should review the pieces regardless of whether it's still in the Green Room, but remember that only REAL Green Room Reviews count toward your total.

In addition, should any Knights enter the contest and win, they will receive a special Scribe badge as mentioned in the contest thread.


I will be keeping track of all contest entries and provided reviews in this thread, Knights.

WHEN YOU PROVIDE A CONTEST REVIEW, please claim it as such. You can say something as simple as

"This is one of the three reviews you'll get from a Knight of the Green Room!"

or make it fancy.


Let's fight with loyalty, knowledge, and determination. As always.

You know it is strange because I am always left out when someone lists the knights of the green room.
There seems to be nothing written here. :shock:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
