The Five Word Story
« on: June 19, 2016, 08:01:44 PM »
Yeah, Steelhelm tried this with 3 words and it quickly tanked.  So I thought, "Let's do it again!"  This time with 5 words per entry.
For those who don't know, Five Word Story is basically a forum game where the members of a forum work together to write a story.
Most of the same rules:
  • Each person posts five words in a never-ending story.
  • However, each person can only use five words per post and they cannot go twice in a row. 
  • You must wait for at least 2 people to respond before posting another five words
  • If nobody has posted in 2 weeks after your post, you may go again
  • You may have multiple pairs of posts, but only 2 at a time.  This will prevent some nut from taking over the story, and running it into … never mind.
  • The person who goes next also copy/pastes all the words from before, bolding their own new five words. This is so we can read it all in one post instead of having to read dozens of small posts each time.

Story background:  Superhero in Paragon fighting crime and being tempted to go rogue.  Work in funny stories that you may have had playing CoH.  Put him on a team or task force or super group and use lots of banter.  Let's not kill him off.  If you want to kill off heroes start your own story.  Anyway, the hero's name is Frost-Zapper an Ice/Electricity Blaster trying to get to level 50 and have fun at the same time.

So let's start and hopefully have some fun with this!

a constant sentinel of justice
It takes a village to raise a child. And it takes a villain to explain the value of lunch money.
