Quest-Giver Chron Challenge



  • A challenge in two parts

    PART I

    Challenge: write a quest.

    Guidelines:

    • It SHOULD set up some kind of problem.

    • It MUST be at least one sentence.

    • It MAY include blanks to be filled in.

    • It MAY be written as narration.

    • It SHOULD be posted EITHER in this thread OR as a new chronicles thread.

    • It SHOULD be posted by the end of June.

    PART II

    Challenge: write a chronicle that follows from one of the quests from Part I.

    Guidelines:

    • It MUST start with the quest in a {quote} block.

    • It MUST fill in all blanks from the quest.

    • It MUST have more words than the quest.

    • It MAY complete the quest.

    • It SHOULD be posted EITHER in the quest’s thread OR as a new chronicles thread.

    • It SHOULD be posted by the end of August.

    NOTES

    Pictures are cool too. They’re worth 1000 words, or a single sentence, for the purpose of word- and sentence-count requirements.

    MUST, SHOULD, and MAY are used as per RFC 2119.

    PART I EXAMPLES

    Quote

    Menelaus burst out of the alchemy lab, his eyebrows singed. “___________, there’s been an accident! You have to help!”

    Quote

    Negotiate wine contract.

    (P.S. These are also valid quests that you can use)

    PART II EXAMPLES

    Quote

    Quote

    Menelaus burst out of the alchemy lab, his eyebrows singed. “PlayerName, there’s been an accident! You have to help!”

    PlayerName smiled and pulled a magic wand out of her satchel. “Don’t worry, this will solve all your problems.” She uncapped it and touched it to Menelaus’s forehead, where his eyebrows had been. “It’s called a Sharpie.”

    Quote

    Quote

    Negotiate wine contract.

    “…I shall return you to your own land, as I promised. Thank you again.”

    Alaric waved his hands before Bellerophon, but nothing happened.

    “Do my powers still fail me?” Alaric asked. “Or is there unfinished business you must attend to before you depart?”

    “You know what,” Bellerophon said, “I think there is.
    “I’m gonna negotiate me a wine contract.”

    (…etc…)



  • I attempted this challenge back in June but it looks like I never linked it from this thread.
