Dragon Storm
Default The Bards of Taliesin [A Creative Writing Roleplay/Club Concept]   #1  
The light casts down from a full moon tonight, sprinkling silver through the damp pine trees. Foot tall ferns mixed with thorny bushes and off-colored honeysuckle vines surround a clearing. A mist rises from the forest soaking the coats of those who cross through with numbing water. In the clearing is a circle of half-eaten foam chairs, salvaged from the dump, and carved log-chairs. Scattered dirt, mixed and uneven a pit serves as a centerpiece to the array. Freshly chopped wood, covered in canvas to keep it dry, lies nearby. A lone dead tree, hollow, stands in the clearing, 100 years old, ten years dead, its last long limb shattering the silver moon to twilight shade. Within the deadfall, a secret a battered grenade of violet smoke, a hole drilled in and ignition removed, ready to sprinkle the colored potassium chlorate over a flame.

With soft crunches and the occasional complaint, a group of people pass through the bristles and thorns to the cleared ground. Quietly, one person takes off his backpack. Opening up a gathered assortment of small and long timber and dryer lint starter, he goes to the pit and sets up the fire. Taking the flint and steel, she strikes. Sparks shower once, twice, and a flame emerges from the starter. While she gradually builds the fire, a man with a binder of paper grabs the grenade. Using a spork, he scoops two handfuls out of the green thing, and returns it to its place. Giving one handful to the firestarter, the storyteller opens for the others.

Welcome to the first meeting of the Bards of Taliesin. We are gathered here in the dark of the woods tonight to honor the Muses and spirits of literature. Tonight, we open ourselves to the Great Unknown of these woods. In the name of constructive creativity, I bid you step into this fairy circle, and leave the impossible behind.

Both the storyteller and firestarter empty their hands into the flame, creating a white flash and a plume of smoke. They then sit on a rock near the fire, waiting for others to join in.

What Is This?
The concept:
  • On a weekly or bi-weekly basis, on a weekend night someone either comes up with or tells a short story of legend/fantasy/supernatural/etc. (Retelling old legends are allowed, but "daily life/realistic fiction" is not so much - think what you would tell around the campfire)
  • That person submits their story in parts while others can comment or encourage it further - there is a limit of ~75-150 words per post. The idea is to create the feel of an oral tradition online.
  • In order to be the storyteller for the next "meeting" PM me
  • In the case of multiple applicants, I will ask you for a number between 1 and 10.
  • People are free to ask questions and comment, however they are not allowed to be mean or too pushy towards the storyteller - that kills the fun of the thing. If needed, I could create a critiquing section in the OOC.
  • Basic Trisphee rules apply, and walk-in's/new people are welcome anytime.
