Mid-Realm Bardic Madness XIX: Bardic By the Numbers - Primus to Extremus

"God may not play dice with the universe,
but something strange is going on with the prime numbers."

- Paul Erdos

Greetings and welcome are bid to all Bards, Troubadors, Trouveres, Minstrels, Minnesingers, Jongleurs,

This year's Bardic Madness will take place on November 18th, 2017 in the Barony of Rivenstar (Lafayette, IN).
Many thanks go to all of them for their hospitality in helping the bardic community out this year.

Math is odd.  1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19… and so forth. This is the start of the never ending sequence of prime numbers – those that are evenly divisible only by themselves and one. Centuries of mathematical effort have gone into determining a formula for identifying all the primes - to no avail.  (Hmmm...  perhaps those mathematicians missed that 'Prime' is a homonym?) 
This year we celebrate the weird world of many quirky primes.
