Plot challenges are designed to help you think quick and be inspired. We often play this game in the cbox, shouting out random words or phrases and see what ideas first pop in to people's heads.

To Participate: THINK FAST. Don't waste any time. The first idea(s) that comes to mind, write it down and post it!

NOTE: If you decide to borrow someone's concept for a roleplay, make sure you give credit.

Challenge Phrase:
A Tinker's Damn

Broken parts, meant for some purpose long forgotten, forged and welded together for a new purpose in the event of a disaster. A mechanic beast, called Cerberus now prowls its town- no longer the guardian, but the villain of this tale. Now, you have to go up against the tinker's damned beast, and take it down to save your people. Can you do it?

Explicit Escritoire

I read this as "A Tinker's Damned" and wrote my short plot based upon that. Apologies if it doesn't count!

Jennifer, a Master Tinker for the Dominion forces, is caught delivering her war machines to the Kydarian Conclave. Fierce rivals for years, the Conclave and Dominion have been at a tide of war with Jennifer's war machines. With the battle tipped in the favor of the Dominion, Jennifer was able to see the true light of the forces she supports. Seeing the darkness at the heart of her own peoples military, she decides to help the Conclave wage war against them. Unfortunately, having been found out, she is set for assassination.

Jennifer will have to fight her way out of the Dominion strong point, surprisingly with the help of a Conclave agent, and a long time friend.
