One paragraph at a time.

Post by Lagg-ninja on Thu Nov 17, 2011 12:24 pm

So this idea spawned from the thread of the flying squids. A story to which we all shall contribute one paragraph at a time. So here are the rules

You must take the story where it was left off (a maximum time gap of a week)

you must not stop your paragraph in a way that makes it impossible to continue (retirement = bad)

Only write 1 paragraph of story and not insanely long (use your head)

be as immaginative as possible so long as it's linked.

So as long as it's linked to the previous paragraph you can be as immaginative as you can (squids evolving from pigs trying to flee from man is acceptable. Rhinoceros becoming dragons for the heck of it.... not ok)

So let's begin I'll give the innitial paragraph.
___________________________________________

It was a dark stormy night at the local tavern, a night dark as ink outside the windows, broken solely by the rain and seldom bolt of lightning. The Customers were drinking and gambling as per usual, nothing outside the ordinary but a single lone traveller sitting alone at the bar, holding in the travellers' pale hands a mug of hot cider to warm from the long travels, wearing a long cloak and hood, which were drenched as they could get, but the traveller's refused to take them off.

Then someone ripped his cloak off and there was silence for a few minutes. Then the mysterious guest spontaneously exploded and everyone died. the end :D

The well meaning barkeep approached the traveler. "good sir, if you would like to let your cloak dry for awhile, there is a spot by the fire over there where it can be hung to dry."

The traveler turned to the barkeep and said, "please, sir, you may call me-"

"-Skaelus. I have come here in order to investigate the recent.... Squid phenomenon."

The barkeeper froze, and with his back still turned, replied-

"You mean..the Wind Kraken?" with a shudder.

"That's right," Skaelus said with a nod. "I have come to shoot it out of the skies."

The barkeeper turned to Skaelus with a sigh. "You don't understand, good sir..the Wind kraken can slow your movements and avoid your arrows. In fact, it can even-

"-eat your hope! By the time you even get close enough to attack, your being will be filled with hopelessness. And when it comes time to fight, you will be so filled with fear that you can't even attack!! Now that you know you should leave! Go far away, and keep thoughts of the Wind Kraken out of your head!!"

Skaelus was quiet for a minute and then replied, "-

"-I believe I can handle myself and the Wind Kraken, thanks." Skaelus drained the rest of the hot cider in a gulp and dropped the cup to the counter. "Now," Skaelus said, pulling out a small pouch of coins and holding it out to the barkeep. "is there a spare room here I can use for the night?"

The barkeep looked from the pouch to the traveler and said, "-

(More or less made this to say I'm moving it to Forum Games because it's like the 'Never Ending Story'. Just FYI)

"Mm?" She grunted.

"Hjyldnirr, could you... be so kind.. as to show this gentleman to his room?" The barkeep asked slightly nervously, holding out an iron key on a large ring.

She simply grunted again, and took the keys, motioning for Skaelus to follow. As they reached the stairs...

half way up he stairs out of nowhere wild squid blocked their path, its tentacles flailing viciously, the world seemed to slow down, and Skaelus found himself at the bottom of the stairs again, sword raised high he rushed to where this squid was, but, it was too late and it had ascended to the heavens, with a grunt of disappointment he turned round and headed.....

(Impossible, that would imply that the squid could fly through the ceiling of a cramped building.)

Skaelus tripped and fell, and his gear fell all over the stairs- his trusty bow and arrows, an iron sword for emergencies, and a mysterious box that contained his secret weapon in a dangerous situation. As he saw the box fell, he cringed fearfully, but seeing that the box did not react to falling, he hastily put all of his gear away again.

Hjyldnirr grunted impatiently, and led Skaelus to his room, where he rested for the night. The next day...

(the squid could have magical powers such as being able to phase through objects Faelar. Please leave the choice of if something is acceptable or not to me, Thanks for trying to help though.

We'll carry on with faelar's version as it does seem more interesting than a fight against a flying squid in stairs)

Skaelus awoke to see a beautiful morning. He took out a book in his bag that he had brought specifically for this job. It was a very old and dusty chronicle is ancient beasts, and he was glad it didn't fall out of his bag when he tripped. He flipped through the pages until he came to the page titled 'Wind Kraken'. He started to read and found out that all that the Barkeep had said was true. Luckily that was the extent of it's powers, and Skaelus was confident that he had sufficient strength to slay these mighty beasts. And on the offchance that he failed, he only had to wait a few days until his friend would join him, the mighty-

(if the book is old the creature more than likely has a different name, and would probably have an actual name rather than something of a nickname like wind kraken.)

-the mighty Paeses, a great and noble sword fighter. Skaelus had not seen his friend Paesus for many years, but by chance they came into contact only a few weeks ago and arranged to meet in the tavern to find and eradicate the Wind Kraken together.

As Skaelus walked over to his bedside cabinet to put down his book, the door burst open, and a rather battered Barkeep practically fell into the room. Breathing heavily, he said -

"Mister Skaelus, sir, there is...someone that wants to see you," covering a black eye with one of his hands.

Skaelus rolled his eyes. He knew that his friend Paeses was always picking a fight, even when it wasn't necessary. To add to the man's quirkiness, Paeses always fought battles with a very odd choice of weaponry- an oversized shovel. He headed downstairs to see his friend bellowing challenges for a bar fight.

Spotting Skaelus arriving from upstairs, Paeses-

"Paeses, you probably shouldn't have broken the floorboards like that. You seem to forget your own strength.."

Paeses looked down and noticed the damage he had dealt. "aww, man, now we REALLY have to kill that kraken for the whole town's sake, or I'm gonna have to pay for that."

"Allright, well, based on what I know, the Wind Kraken should be located at the Mountain of Storms," Skaelus said. "We'd better get going."

And so the two heroes set off. Along the way...

-"Oh damn, it's the Mountain of Souls... the difference between that at the Mountain of Storms is so small. The dark fog, similar shape... the only thing that's different between them is that one's constantly got rain pouring down it and the other has dark souls floating all around it. From a distance, they both look the same!"

Paeses looked much closer, and pointed at a pointy rock.

"Skaelus! It's the Rock of Uncertainty!"

"Is it? I'm not sure... I thought the Rock of Uncertainty was a bit... smaller... no, bigger.... D'you think that's the Mountain of Souls up there, or the Mountain of Storms?" Skaelus replied.

After a moment's silence, Paeses spoke. "Well, shouldn't we-

"-Consult the Rock of Uncertainty to find the direction of the mountain? honestly, I'm not really sure."

Skaelus nodded. he went up to the rock, which, in some stories, is very small, and in other stories, very large. Regardless of size, he picked up the rock and tossed it a couple feet in the air.

The rock pointed to the west- or was it east?

"Oh, dang crap it all," Skaelus said.

They decided to head...

-The Rock of Uncertainty has had it's typo fixed- or has it? Who can be sure?-
