    Default Haiku encounters

    Rules:

    Post a five syllable response to resolve an encounter described by the previous player, then post the first two lines of a haiku (5 syllables then 7 syllables) describing a new encounter for the next player to resolve.

    Haiku encounter one:

    Night time, you're on watch
    Goblins leap out from the trees!
