Huh, this is fascinating! I really like that you allow the use of unusual skills like Animal Ken during the Middle phase of poem composition, that rule opens up a lot of interesting possibilities. 🤔 I definitely want to find a way to use this in the next game I run.

I kind of wonder: could I get your permission to include a link to this in my Motor City Breakdown setting, to simulate rap battles and freestyling? I bet these rules could also be useful in Viking chronicles where flyting happens, too.
