    Default Build a Story, five words at a time

    We will now be writing a fantasy short story! Feel free to talk about anything you wish, but you may only add five words to the story per post! This was inspired by the "Letter to the Giant" thread!

    The Greatest Threads Of GiantITP (in my opinion):
    A story of the exact wrong way to run a campaign.

    A ridiculous campaign.
    Weird dreams.
