> UPDATE [ at 4-2011 ] :
Welcome ! :)
This fun writing game started out here as very simple 'Three word story'.

Later I expanded it to 'Five word story', and it soon proved more popular with all our witty creative writers.

> It is now '20 word story' [ an experimental version ]

Please write from 3 up to 20 words in your reply/post.
20 is just a rough maximum.

Read our most recent posts for good examples, and more flexible rules and guidelines changes.
--
Eventually, I will include all our latest format details and help into this starting post.

You do not have to be a regular poster in here. Just post when you feel like it.
The fun-tale will continue onwards...
Please join in and have some creative fun ? :)

[ below are the old 3 word rules.
they give you a simple example of turns and gameplay in here.
But our latest posts [ with more words ] allow us to interact in a far better and detailed fun storyline. ]

-[[ 'Three word story'
is a fun word GAME in which a story is built up by multiple posters, who ONLY use 3 words each turn/post.

It is a common favourite of forum gamers, since it is easy to explain and play in a linear, structured fashion.
[ A simple example of gameplay goes as follows:
A tall man...
... walked into a...
... car and it...
... was very painful... ]

The game 'story' will ofcourse probably be very weird, whacky, and just light fun.
Please join in and have some fun with us ? :) ]]-

OK. I will get us started, with this below...

I would vanish into the new Sunrise glaring."

Money and muscle, that's what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money won't do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the money in the world won't enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has money he may not be able to get away with it.
--Robert E. Howard to Harold Preece, ca. June 1928--
