Ok, thanks for letting us know. In the "worst" case you may need to adapt the end of your chapter to the beginning of the next chapter. ;)

Sign me up please. I'll post chapter four of the story as soon as I find a picture.

First Natiions of North America, 6 player, terminator, automatic, flat rate, chained.



Image

“Several knights traveled through the forest on the eve of the new moon. The hags swear the princess rode in the midst of them, her hands tied together, and a scarf tied round her eyes.” Tears filled Anna’s eyes. “The hags followed them for a day and a night and know where they have hidden her. It is a small cave halfway up Dragon’s Fire Mountain.”

The Knight said, “If she is so close we can soon rescue her.”

Anna shook her head. “They have gotten aid from the Sorceress Choldrin who has placed a Spell of Protection around the cave. No one can enter or leave the cave. The hags can prepare a Potion of Unbinding to free the Princess, but …” Tears trickled down Anna’s cheeks like small streams of water in a meadow.

The ranger stepped forward and took Anna’s hands in his. “But what, fair lady? I am at your service; tell me what I must do.”

“They do not have all the items required for the spell.”

“Then we shall gather them.” He wiped away her tears with one finger. “No more tears, we shall do this for the Princess and the King.”

Anna’s lip trembled. “I fear you are her only hope. And there is not much time. The potion must be prepared on the eve of the full moon and used the following night. Everything must be gathered by then.”

The Knight stepped forward and placed one hand on the hilt of his sword. “I swear by all that is holy that we shall return here with all that is needed.”

One of the hags stepped forward. Wrinkles lined her face, coarse gray hair hung over her shoulders and dark eyes stared at him beneath sagging eyelids. A scar zig-zagged down her cheek. “Brave words, Knight, but we trust no man. We will keep Anna here as a token of your allegiance.”

The Ranger stepped forward, one hand on his sword, but the Knight swung his arm across his friend’s chest and held him back. “Then tell us what you need so we might begin our journey while it is still light.”

“An acorn from the Oak of Midgard. Seven drops of water from the Pool of Lindax. A scale from the back of a dragon. And nine strands of hair from the Goddess Amazzony.” She pointed at the door. “Go. Now. Do not return unless you complete your quest.”

With a single nod of his head at Anna, he gripped his friend’s shoulder. “We shall return before the eve of the full moon.”

Image

Outside the hut he pressed one finger against his lips and shook his head. In silence they mounted their horses. He led the way beneath the swaying branches of towering trees. Small animals scurried beneath shrubs while birds sang overhead. A breeze scattered leaves and sunlight filtered through the trees dropping pools of golden light on the narrow trail. More than an hour passed before the Knight spoke. “Where shall we begin? The oak is the furthest away and guarded by an ogre. A terrible monster lives beside the pool. The dragon sleeps by day and flies at night, and most assuredly breathes fire. And the Goddess can weave spells of magic to ensnare any man’s heart.”

“Let us sleep this night near the crossroads and in the morning make our decision.”

“We must be wary, if the Sorceress hears of our quest she will send many creatures to stop us.”

The ranger said, “Like that one?”

When he peered over his shoulder the Knight saw a troll.

CYOT: Damsel in Distress [Voting]

Postby Lindax on Sun Aug 22, 2010 1:20 pm

----
Voting for the "Best" Chapter.

As you probably know, there is a General Achievement Medal up for grabs for whoever wrote the "Best" Chapter of our Damsel in Distress story, which will be decided by voting.

Since many entries do not comply with the requirements in the 1st post (no images provided or not provided in the proper format, too little, too much text, etc.) I decided to come up with a system where the entries that did comply with the requirements already get votes:


  • If you wrote a chapter you already get 1 vote.
  • If you wrote a chapter and provided one or more images you already get 2 votes.
  • If your entry complies completely with the requirements you already get 3 votes.

This way the people who follow the rules get recognized, but everybody gets to enter in the vote. This also means that when you vote for the "best" chapter, you don't need to look at the entry following the rules or not, you can simply judge every chapter on other merits, such as:

  • Originality and imagination
  • How it is written
  • How it fits in with the rest of the story
  • How it is connected to the map and setting chosen by the writer

Reading the whole story, I also realize that it is not easy to choose merely one chapter. So, you can vote for 2 chapters. Your first choice gets 2 votes, your second choice gets 1 vote. If you decide to vote for only one chapter it will count as 1 vote.

Since I am in the tournament myself, amazzony will collect the votes by PM. Please send her a PM with the subject:
Damsel Votes. Votes posted in this thread will NOT count! The voting will be anonymous.

You cannot vote for your own chapter. Nor for chapter 8 by bkwill and chapter 24 by colton24.

Trying to get others to vote for your chapter will result in disqualification of this "best" chapter contest.

It takes a while to read the whole story a few times, so voting will be open until midnight of May 31.

Since I cannot write anymore of the story I do not know who or what may lie beside the Pool of Lindax. You? Another? A horrible creature that defies description? Only as we turn the pages shall the truth be revealed.

Struck with instant fear and caught off-guard, the Knight and Ranger fled on foot, racing through the thick forested area. The adrenaline carrying them along as deer, they made their way toward the morning sun in the east. Panting heavily the knight looks back, “Hold on, hold on, we are alone,” and both men fell to the floor of the forested kingdom they had ridden through not even twelve hours earlier. “That Troll, I have seen that troll before, but can not place him,” the Ranger whispers. The Knight looked over, “What the hell do you mean you have seen him before? Hell I do not even know what a troll is.”

The men re-gathered their composure and set off down the path, each man in deep thought as only footsteps and the occasional murmur from the Ranger broke the silence. It was not long before they exited the forest unto an open meadow filled with the morning dew on open fields of green as the sunlight fell upon their faces. Thankful to be out, each smiled at each other but the relief was for but for a moment as sudden fear came upon the Ranger’s face. “What is it?” the Knight urgently inquires. “That was no troll we saw,” replied Ranger. Growing ever more nervous, “Than what or who was it Ranger? “That was the Prince of Midian who sought for years permission to court the Princess and yet was always denied by the King who had better taste. And Anna, you saw the clothing she was arrayed in, we both were taken back, but did you notice the cross weave loops at the fringes of her garments? Yes Sir Knight they point directly to the customs of the Midian peoples.” The Knight torn between common sense and his lust for this beautiful vessel called Anna urges Ranger to speak on. “The acorn, the seven drops of water from the pool Lindax, the dragon scale, do you not see the symbolism each of these requests bear? The Knight intensely listened on as the Ranger calculated in his mind the meaning of these things. “The acorn is the prince of Midian, who seeks to grow into an oak, who is the King over us. The seven drops communicate that in seven years will he turn the kingdom over and the dragon scale represents the ones to whom the kingdom will be transferred to.” “Well who would that be?” eagerly questioned the Knight.

Ranger’s voice fading away, “I am not sure.” “But I get the feeling when the prince of Midian was denied entry into the kingdom through marriage that his plan was unintentionally thwarted and that now they have sought a second course of action in taking the Princess away to use her to accomplish their goals.”

The Knight stands up before the Ranger, “What course of action do we take from here?”
