A couple of years ago, we did a glamour contest with a Steampunk Theme and invited participants to show off their glamour on stage in the Free Company basement. This time we're looking for the best Steampunk Screenshot you can create!

Do you have a hidden talent? Are you crying to have your inner thespian heard? Do you have a poem that is waiting to escape? Is your inner musician singing a song inside you? This is the time for you to shine!
On Saturday, January 30th, 2021 at 6:00pm EST we will be our annual The Black Waltz Talent Show! However, unlike other similarly named competitions, we will not have any red buzzers to intimidate or scare people from potentially performing!
The possibilities are endless as to what you can showcase as your "talent;" you can do whatever you like to try and impress the judges!
Here are some examples as to what you may consider doing:
"Performing" as a Bard
Reciting a Poem
Performing a Skit or monologue
Show-casing in-game fashion you put together
...or anything else you think worthy!
Originality: Was the piece an original piece created by the presenter?
Engagement: Was the audience engaged in the performance?
Presentation: How well the presenter was able to present their Talent.
One of the most recognizable fashion trends in the world is Steampunk. A couple of years ago we held a Glamour Contest on the stage in our Free Company Estate and it was a steaming success. This time, we want to take it one step further and allow our members to utilize screenshots and /gpose to take the perfect Steampunk Shot.
Steampunk is a retro-futuristic subgenre of science fiction that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. This genre is basically Victorian-era clothing meets steam-powered machinery.
Deadline for Screenshot Submission: January 31st, 2021 @ 11:59:59pm EST
Theme: Does the screenshot clearly represent the Steampunk Theme?
Style: How fashionable and original is the outfit? Unique? Well put together?
Screenshot Originality: Was the screenshot taken in a unique place? Does the place represent / enhance the screenshot?
Beginning on Sunday, May 3 and continuing every other Sunday from then on, we will be hosting a biweekly event where our Free Company Members can get to know each others' sense of humour and laugh with each other. During these events, the event coordinator will provide games from the "Jackbox Party Pack" series for participants to join and have fun. These games range from a variety of types including Trivia. This event started as an idea from one of our members, Jak! Now it is finally coming into fruition!
Note: We want you to be yourself! As such, some peoples' sense of humour may be more on the adult side, so we will be stamping this event with an 18+ disclaimer. However, if you are participating it should be noted dark humour / taboo subjects are not allowed in this event and the guidelines of Respect outlined in our Free Company Charter must be followed.
This event is meant to help get to know our community on a more humourous and fun level. To participate, you will need access to Discord (to view the game hosts' stream and participate), and an additional device with an internet browser available on it. A tablet, smartphone, computer, or PS4 browser all work for this!
How does it work?
After a game is chosen, the Game Host will Stream the game from their computer. Participants will then view the stream, and, using the website and code provided by the game, they will access their internet browsers and connect to the game. Whichever devices' browser is used to connect to the game will become the participant's buzzer / answer input device / score sheet.
Rules for each game are broadcast during the beginning of each game. Bringing wine, alcohol, or snacks is encourage! Please be ready to laugh!
