The Story Game

Post by Toz76 on Sun Jul 12, 2015 12:37 pm

Also sometimes called "Three Word Story Revolution".

In this game, we post a story, a paragraph or two at a time.

_______
Once upon a time, in the land of Cordann on the island of Magykka, a young boy named Heph was hard at work. He was an apprentice blacksmith, and was already showing great skill.

"why would you do that?"

"Because I know what you really do with the money collected every Sunday, and you are going to pay!"

The minister was terrified... He had been busted!

Heph fled the demons in terror. He shouted a warning: "Minister Pokyrah is attacking me!"

Soon, the townsfolk were chasing Pokyrah down. He hid in his manor on the banks of the River Eb and summoned more demons.

On the other side of town, Heph escaped only by...

Heph climbed on the Wazalka's back, and the two flew to the safety of the southern forest.

But in the forest, Heph realized he had not thought it through. He was now stranded in the forest with a hungry Wazalka, and he had no food for himself. All he had was the hammer he had attacked Pokyrah with, but it was strictly industrial and no good against a Wazalka.

So he ran.

But far away, on the other side of the island, the dark lord Elmo (an ancient Magykan name meaning "Bringer of death"), was planning to counqer Cordann, but needed a blacksmith to make weapons for his army. So he sent a goblin spy, Dravini, to kidnap one...

Meanwhile, Heph ran into Pokyrah on his way to work. In reality, he was a nice man, if somewhat superstitious. When Heph told him about the dream, Pokyrah gasped.

"That dream is a bad omen. It means...

That an evil force will be coming forth soon."  He said ominously.

"How will we know when the force is coming"

"There are twenty five signs that will signal the arrival of the evil."

Bewildered, Heph asked "what are they!"  Pokyrah cleared his throat

1. "First, all over town windows will shatter, yet no one will cast stones upon them"
2." Next, the call of the raven shall be heard, yet no birds will be in town"
3. "A fireplace will light, without anyone using flint or tinder
4. "The river will freeze solid, yet it is 75 degrees"
5. "Pigs will fly"
6. the eldest son of the seventh son will have his skin turn green
7. The seventh son of the eldest son will have his skin turn blue
8. A creature shall be born that will walk on four legs in the morning, 2 legs in the afternoon and three legs at night
9. A cow shall jump over the moon
10. The dog will laugh
11. The dish will run with the spoon
12. A mysterious stranger will enter town, asking only for rest and water
13. He will leave the next day
14. Locusts will ravage our crops for 3 days, yet when they are done, more crops will sprout
15. A horseman will ride through town, holding a torch
16. The sky itself will catch fire for 30 seconds... Yet no harm will befall anyone, even the birds
17) water will burn
18) all men in town will sleepwalk
19) a mysterious ringing will be heard through town, yet no source found
20) a leader will fall
21) another wil rise
22) a dove shall be seen With a raven
23) a pig will go to market
24) a riddle will appear in the river
25) 500 hours of darkness will cover the land

(I'm really bored right now, lol)

"500 hours?!" Heph exclaimed.
"Well it's actually 473 hours, but we say 500 to make it sound more dramatic."

But Heph wasn't so sure.  "There's no way that true."  He said

Meanwhile, very far away, an evil sounding voice said "let the extremely long ritual begin!"

Suddenly, all over town, windows shattered.

"I was right!" Said Pokyrah, as an unseen raven crowed.

Heph and Pokyrah ran to the blacksmith shop. Heph's fellow apprentice, Nikko, yelled, "Who lit that fire? And where's all the flint gone?"

"We have to get you out of here, fast." Said Pokyrah. "These evil forces want you, hence the dream. If we leave the town, we can spare the townsfolk from the worst of it."

"But how will you get out?" Asked Nikko. "Have you forgotten the river that surrounds the entire town? You can't just walk over it!"

Heph glanced at the thermometer. It was 72 degrees and rising steadily. "Actually, we can."

Heph looked outside as the river began to freeze.  But then, a look of triumph was on his face.

"Wait, the ritual will fail; no one in this town has seven sons!"  He realized

"I think we're supposed to worry about flying pigs now". Pokyrah pointed out

On the other side of the river were the southern forests. Heph and Pokyrah walked for days, but they couldn't see the sky.

At last, they emerged from the forest into the barren land of the minotaurs. At that moment, they saw a flying pig.

"What?" Asked Heph. "How is this possible? We were in there for days, we should be further along."

"Part of the legend states that you must see each sign before the next can happen. I shall now blindfold you for your own good."

Back in the town, Dravini had found a suitable blacksmith: Nikko...

"wait, you don't want me... Besides, you can't take me yet... The ritual isn't done!"

Dravini thought about his next move very carefully... So much so Nikko had enough time to alert The captain of the town guard, Caretius, of this new threat.

Caretius took Nikko to a safe place (the old, crumbling footbridge), and went after Dravini. But the goblin was craftier then he'd anticipated, and he was soon on a wild goose chase.

Meanwhile, on the southern part of the island, the Tolkienesque stereotypical noble archer wood-elves were discussing the signs. Two junior elves, Eduardo (gasp! A real name) and Kokar, where listening in when suddenly, they heard: "If the chosen one dies before the beginning of the twenty-fifth sign, perhaps we can yet save the world from the terrible monster that is Elmo."

The two elves were complete opposites (Eduardo was quite and intellectual, Kokar was... not), but they both agreed that they could not let the chosen one die. So they set off to find him.

It took much searching, but in the name of plot acceleration, eventually the wood elves found Heph and Pokyrah.

"You are the ones called Heph and Pokyrah. We have been looking for you" Eduardo stated.

"You need not fear us. We are on your side." Kokar followed up with.

Heph was so relieved, he removed his blindfold.

To his amazement, Eduardo suddenly turned green and Kokar turned blue."

Heph just cut to the chase "one, will this wear off? And two, how many brothers do each of you have?"

The group decided to hide in a cave and seek shelter for the night, hopefully avoiding babies along the way.

Little did they know that many Minotaurs had taken up residence in the cave too...

"In the event we don't get out of this alive, I just want you to know I lied; eventually our skin colors will return to normal, and we only have six brothers each; our fathers had six brothers each too." One of the elves informed

But they did breathe a sigh of relief "well, at least all of us are male; there's no way any of us could birth a creature that walks on four legs in the morning, 2 legs in the afternoon and there legs at night."

"Yes, that's true." Pokyrah said. "But what could this creature be?" The elves said. Regretfully they hadn't heard the narrator say "babies"
Heph thought about it "I know! It's a tiger-gorilla hybrid with an extendable third leg!" The others just stared at him.

"Think about it; in tiger mode it's four legged, but in gorilla mode it's two legged. Then while in gorilla mode, it can bring out its extendable third leg."

The others stared at him "THAT IS THE MOST ABSURD THING WE HAVE EVER HEARD!!!" All three screamed together

"Do you have any ideas?" Heph replied. So they began to think.

Luckily, since the narrator didn't want to see them go insane, he told them that it was a riddle the Sphinx had asked many years ago. The answer? M-

Suddenly the Minotaurs charged out and took them by surprise.

A long battle took place... Where the minotaurs ere eventually chased off.

At last, the narrator said "the answer is man."

Heph thought "wait a second, thousands of babies are born everyday! Could the sign refer to the birth of a specific baby?"

"Yes, Vladimir Titanica. It is said that one day someone will rule the world, and since I'm the narrator, I know that it will be him. He will wage wars that will eventually destroy the earth, but during that time, will make people believe that he is a peace lover. Now I must leave; I've said to much already." So the narrator left.

"Well we can relax; until that sign happens the remaining 19 or so cannot take place." Pokyrah assured Heph

And they all sighed with relief

Meanwhile, in the far-off land of Chakalaka, Drilnag Drolnag the farmer was (surprisingly( farming, when he suddenly saw in the sky a peculiar metal object. It landed in a cornfield, and three people in fancy blue armor stepped out.

"Excuse me, what year is this?" Asked one of the men.

"I dunno. 'Snot my job to keep track of the year. Who're you?"

"We're time travelers, sent to kill one Susanna Titanaca before her baby is born so the future remains safe and happy."

"Mitch, you weren't supposed to tell him that! It could cause a paradox!"

The three argued as they got back in and flew off. Drilnag shrugged and went back to work.

Heph and Co were hungry. They had to fight the minatours for food, and a baby minotaur they called "Minos would follow them around, asking for food by grunting. Eventually, they made a plan.
