    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
    "Stranger In A Van"
  2. The chick in the van was a stranger to you. But when a hot chick drives up and tells you "Get in - your life is in danger!" your libido kind of takes over. Or it did last night, anyways. And look where that led. Now you don't know where you are, and neither does she. It's looking to be a long drive home.....
  3. While saving a mysterious stranger from certain doom, Stan was doomed himself. His life is now bound to the stranger's unmarked van...he can never stray from it's side. The moment he does, he dies. Stan doesn't want to die...but he doesn't want to live eternity alone. During his never ending days he longs for company...Having a sweet-tooth, one thing Stan loved about the van was that it came stocked with candy. Offering pieces to strangers in an effort to ease his loneliness, Stan has unexpectedly turned himself into a lifelong suspect on the run...will he ever be free of his curse? Only time will tell...
  4. A genius boy around the age of twelve is kidnapped by the government. He is trapped inside a van that appears normal on the outside, only to realize that this van controls the entire city. The government explains to him how the city is now in danger as a terrorist threatens to destroy it. There are a few problems. This terrorist might be the stranger who kidnapped him and is working from inside the government and he's been injected by a government test known the inhuman serum. Meaning, this person has more than brains. Can this young boy save the fate of his city or will he be swayed into the side of evil?
