Open to all forum members, even after it starts!
This month's prompt:
It's time to roll the dice, baby, and come up with a random setting and setup sourced from the roleplaying game Fiasco.
Using this online dice-roller (or real dice), roll to see which setting you'll be using:
01 - Alpha Complex (science fiction)
02 - Dragon Slayers (fantasy)
03 - Flyover (contemporary America)
04 - Heroes Of Pinnacle City (superheroes)
05 - Los Angeles, 1936 (film noir)
06 - Vegas, Baby (Vegas!)
Each setting linked above has a list of Relationships, Needs, Objects, and Places. Roll the dice twice for each category, once to determine the kind of Relationship, Need, Object, and Place, and once to determine the specifics.
Your blog post must use the rolled Setting, Relationship, Need, Object, and Place in some way. You can reroll if you can't make it work.
1. Using the dice roller, I roll a 2. That means my setting is Dragon Slayers.
2. Following the Dragon Slayers link, I roll for my Relationship. I get a 1, which means Family and Romance
3. I roll again to see what kind of Family and Romance. I roll a 3, which means Unrequited lovers.
4. I roll for my Needs. I get a 5, which means To Rule.
5. I roll again to see what kind of Rule and get a 4, which means To Rule...an army of undead.
6. I roll for my Location. I get a 5, which means From the Past.
7. I roll again to see what kind of location From the Past and get a 2, which means Military academy (massacred in a major war).
8. Finally, I roll for my Object. I get a 1, which means Weapons.
9. I roll one more time to see what kind of Weapons and get a 3, which means Big-ass iron warhammer.
So in this case, my blog entry would need to include:
-A fantasy setting
-Character(s) with an unrequited romance
-Someone who needs/wants to rule over an army of undead
-A military academy massacred and destroyed in a past war
-A big-ass iron warhammer
