Puddleglum New Years Resolutions:

1. Improve on my fricasseed frog and eel pie recipes.
2. Enter a beauty contest, after all, I am a handsome chap.
3. Attend the annual Great Snow Dance (although some calamity will befall Narnia while I'm there, I shouldn't wonder)

Default King Rilian, son of King Caspian X

I, King Rilian of Narnia, do resolve to live by this code of conduct, starting this year, and shall continue in it forevermore.

1. I will not be deceived by the beauty of women, and choose a female companion based on her heart and love for Aslan.
2. I will not sit in chairs made of silver.
3. I will be vigilant and not give place to witchcraft within Narnia's borders.
4. I will not wear black armor.
5. My shield will always bear the symbol of Aslan.
6. I will visit my grandfather, Ramandu, at least once a year.
7. I will see that the swords of my soldiers are always sharp enough to destroy a silver chair incase the need were ever to arise.

Ooops! I have made too many, so have revised the list as follows:

I, Prince Corin of Archenland, no longer first in line to the throne since it was discovered that I have an older twin brother (hooray!) make the following new year resolutions:

I shall not sneak off to explore strange, foreign cities, whilst there as a guest, especially when in the care of Narnian royalty.

I shall come and go by means of the door, not through windows, roofs etc.,

I shall not start fights with the local inhabitants of the city, even though they deserved it for insulting Queen Susan, nor shall I start fights with the city watch.

I shall not allow people to think I'm my elder brother Prince, one day to be king, Cor, although it's hilarious to see the chaos and mayhem this causes!

I shall not participate in mortal combat against the Calormenes, or anyone else, when father, King Lune of Archenland, forbids it, nor shall I cause injury to anyone appointed to keep me out of trouble.

I shall not insult the leader of an invading army who is our prisoner, even if he does deserve it.

I shall not challenge him to a boxing match, even though I would very easily knock his block off!

I shall not mock him when he is trapped by his mail by a hook on the wall, although this was one of the funniest things I've ever seen, nor shall I laugh when he is turned into a donkey, nor when as an ass he kicks one of the guards, although this was absolutely hilarious!

I shall not use my boxing skills to knock Cor down, quite so often, although he asks for it by being so annoying! However, I shall practice boxing every day using Cor to practice my punches on! Er, sorry, not using Cor to practice my punches on!

Finally, I shall try and keep at least some of these resolutions longer than I managed to do so last year!

Sorry for the delay in setting up the judging for this contest.
I've had my hands full lately juggling transitions and new opportunities.

But things are a bit more manageable now, so I am temporarily closing this thread now while judges get back to me. Check back in a week or so for the results!

Default Congratulations all!

The judges' votes are now in, and they were impressed by the thought you put into your Narnian New Year Resolutions. You all are to be commended, including Inkspot, whose Lasaraleen's resolutions were not in the competition by her request.

Avvies have been awarded to the two entries that received the most points, 1st Place to Corin Thunderfist's Corin, and 2nd Place to Sir Tom's Prince Rilian.

P.S. Honorable mention goes to Firefly 77 for Puddleglum's resolutions. Two out of the six judges mentioned your entry was their favorite because of good ol' Puddleglum, although his scores were less than Corin's and Sir Tom's.
