It's been done before, but I think it's time for a community story.
Let's see if we can pull off a decent story.
It could be practice for us all if a TeamComp comes to fruitition!
Add a paragraph or a page and let's write an epic!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The nameless one collapses at the peak of the hill, running from the village which exiled him.
Angry voices still chased him on the wind, the haunting glow of waving torches lighting the scene he fled.
Rest was not a luxury he could afford...

I just lack any idea of where to take the story from that intro, that's all.

Wow. I was only saying why I hadn't written anything when I checked it before. I thought about it but hadn't been able to come up with anything.

And I really don't feel like coming up with an intro after being called stupid and careless.

Thanks for that.

No, this isn't a *SMACKING" thread.
I meant you no offence.
Please accept my humble boot-kissing apologies.
What I was hoping to imply was that if you had a good idea to start a story off, you should post it.
Again, I'm sorry for offending you.

Suddenly he was aware that he was not alone. Standing over him was a tall slender woman in a deep red dress and with a long hooded cape hanging down behind her.

"Hello Sigmund, it is good to see you" she greeted him, for she knew who he was and why he was being driven from his home.

“Yea, verily,” quoth Sigmund. “But how could you have seen me?”

“It is difficult,” replied the Slender Lady, “to not see an elephant.”

Sigmund pouted and picked at the grass with his trunk, for this was the very reason his village had cast him out. Although he could afford neither moments of pause nor of self-reproach, the elephant had lost all hope of ever living in peace with the people in Yellow.

But the Slender Lady broke his morose reverie, asking, “Sigmund, have ye heard of the Curse of Grobmar?”

Said Sigmund, “I’ll never forget…”

His mind wracked with tumultuous torment, the moment that Sigmund's life took a dramatic turn for the worse felt like only yesterday to him.

In fact, all of two days had passed since the unfortunate quadruped's path had intertwined with that of Grobmar the Wise yet Morally Misguided, the last surviving member of a foul, malevolent race known only as the Fiendish, and the most feared being in all Abscondia.

With vivid rememberances coursing through his mind like hot pyroclastic flow, Sigmund couldn't help but recall that fateful night...
