The theatre patrons held a collective breath as they watched the man pour ink over precious paintings and rare chess pieces. They say reality is stranger than fiction, and it proved to be true. Forget the play; the drama unfolding before them was much more exciting! (46 words)

theatre, chess piece, ink

The chess piece, a pawn, cheerfully rolled in the spilled ink and then, sprouting two very short legs, gleefully ran across the theatre floor, leaving tiny foot prints in her wake. [32 words]

This week's words are: inspiration, dice, secret

On a chilly night, several guild members shuffled secretively into a small room. After the preliminaries were over and they were seated, one person threw some dice from his pocket across the table. Another read the portents from a worn book, inspiring a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

inspiration, dice, secret

She came up with an inspirational idea of inventing a new dice that will change it's colors. It was nothing much but now she has something to give. So, she'll keep it as a secret before she gives it out to her brother on his fifth birthday as a surprise. ( 50 words )

Finding the gold dice in her father's things was the inspiration for her new career. Obviously, it was important; he had kept it hidden away in secret. The inscription of "Never again" on it only deepened the mystery. Nurse by choice, but now detective by need. Let the sleuthing commence! (50 words)

She needed some inspiration and decided to try her hand at divination. She threw three of her antique bone dice; the dots added up to sixteen and reduced to seven. Someone was going to tell her a secret! (38 words)

inspiration, dice, secret

The dice gathered in their secret hideaway. They wanted to come up with some surprises for the people who used them, and looked for inspiration amidst the memories of the oldest surviving members. (33 words)

Our first words for December!

maze, planet, message

She threw the dice and rolled the planet. Moving per the roll, she wandered into the maze. Attaining the center, she read the message therein. Oh no! It was the snark! [31 words]

No takers on that one? :mellow: What about these?

goal, mythology, switch

Her goal, as she saw it, was to switch what was regarded as mythology to being regarded as real. Dragons were real … and so were Nifflers. [27 words]

Popular mythology tells us that the goal of the hero is to be the savior. What if we were to switch that around and have the "hero" being the one causing the destruction and the perceived "villain"really be the good guy? Plot twist, for the win! (49 words)

Disproving mythology had never been his goal. He probed and scoffed, countered every argument with the devil's advocate and reality's cold truth. But he would gladly switch to believing in fairy tales and urban myths. Anything to prove that his love was still here, just hidden. (46 words)
