Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Diana, May 25, 2011.


    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
    The Duchess and the Mask
  2. Centuri, a man known as the eternal stranger, his only possessions are the clothes on his back and a strange mask, half black and half white. When he comes to the castle of a Duchess, will he upset the the order of things? After all, what kind of man can be an eternal stranger?
  3. Sitting at her vanity, staring into a bland expression, she wonders how this all came to be. This was the only way, the only release she has anymore. Days have become gray and dull, always the same, always tiring and depessing. A slender hand passes over a black mask, dark as night. Laugher could be heard beyond the door, the clinging of glasses and the squeals of young mistresses as the masters shower their necks with kisses. With a swift simple movement she stood and placed the mask over her eyes, her nearly see-threw gown flowing around her as she made it to the door. If day could not satify her...then she would play in the night.
  4. As a duchess from a very high ranked family, Gwen must do as she's told, when she's told. She must never act unladylike and must marry a foul, poor excuse for a gentleman. One day, while retreating to her favorite attic hideout, she stumbles upon a beautiful and intricately decorated masquerade mask. The moment she touches it to her face, she transforms into a masked vigilante! As if her life couldn't take more of a turn for the exciting, she, as the Masked Duchess, meets a charming, yet lowly classed young man and falls madly in love. Now she's torn between her duty and her heart's desires.
  5. The Duchess and the Mask. Bounty hunters with shitty names. Vilgilantes who have no loyalty to anyone, but themes selves. Exhibitionists who have been highly trained. These two have been making a name for themselves all of the Golden Trails, but this small town sheriff ain't naive enough fall for rumours. They're coming my way, but I know what they are. Ain't nothing but two old haunts who know how to play ijits with empty gestures. Time to get the salt and the holy water ready. Been a long time since I fought both a banshee and a Vampire, but it's all in the day's work for Tucker Taint, Sheriff of Helltown.
