    Cooperative Worldbuilding Challenge #1

    Mythology/Western/Invasion It's 1849 and the California Gold Rush is just kicking into high gear. But in this world, demigods walk among us, descendants of gods of various pantheons. Celtic, Norse, Greek, and Roman demigods have spread across European colonies, and many are popular and well-known throughout the expanding United States. Mythological heroes from indigenous tribes stand against the expanding Americans. Yoruba and Fon mythological figures from Africa have accompanied the people sold into slavery and assert themselves in the American South and explore westward. Chinese immigra
  3. It can still work! In my experience, if you're going to challenge yourself to work with a random set, you'll get more creative results if you stick to the initial set you got rather than randomizing until you get something you're comfortable with. Perhaps, "Lost World" and "Criminals"? Maybe there's a world that dangerous criminals are thrown into through some sort of mystical portal and left to die, and nobody knows what lies in wait for you on the other side. Perhaps the fear of this world has grown so great by word of mouth that the dangers inside could never actually compare. Perhaps

    Cooperative Worldbuilding Challenge #1

    Yeah, the easy answer would be "romance while a kaiju is attacking" which was why my brains slid right past it. I guess I just looked on the surface and didn't think of Kong or anything else. There are actually a lot of "kaiju/unexpected genre" stories out there, once I start to think about it. I mean Kipo is like kaiju/coming of age. The movie Colossal was kaiju/slice of life, and I know there are more anime variations than you could shake a fish at (Neon Genesis, Attack on Titan, etc.) I guess in my head I saw kaiju and went right to "Godzilla" and romance seemed like the one theme that
  5. You say Kaiju and romance don't seem related, but isn't that exactly what King Kong is? If you were to combine Kaiju and romance, it definitely feels like cheating to just say "romance while a kaiju is attacking" or anything along those lines... It also feels like cheating to just say "romance between kaiju" as well. But I suppose striking these simple answers makes it an interesting challenge. Thinking more on it, it kind of calls to mind a scenario almost like the arcade game Rampage in which normal people mutate into Kaiju. Perhaps the story could involve a soldier whose wife ends up

    Cooperative Worldbuilding Challenge #1

    I like to take two that don't seem related at all and mash them up. Like... kaiju romance. ...and now I feel like I have to make up a kaiju romance. What if we had a world threatened by monstrous kaiju, a world where humans (of course) made powerful, kaiju-sized mechs in which to battle these invading monsters. But one mech in particular isn't threatening. For some reason, the particular configuration chose for this mech doesn't frighten or enrage the kaiju like so many of the others do. This one sets off a romantic reaction. One kaiju in particular is intent on making this mech her own.
  7. Ohh I like the concept of Show Biz, actually. I suppose it's more of a plot than world-building per se, but perhaps you could explore a business-driven world of economic corruption? Oppressive city streets lined with neon lights and alcohol. Advertisements everywhere. The voices heard everywhere you go are the voices of those with the most money and influence who will buy and sell you without you ever even knowing. The story could follow a young girl, an idol innocent and naive to the cruel way this world of business and financing will treat her. She cares for her fans and is willing to d
  8. Here's the challenge. Let's cooperatively build a world, a new setting for a roleplay. I do this all the time as a creative exercise, but it's so much more fun to do with others. I find the practice of putting forth an idea, listening to how it inspires ideas in others, then having those ideas in turn inspire more of my own ideas, in this ever-snowballing process of cooperative creation to be fascinating, inspiring, and so much fun! Let's try it. I have a random generator to start out with a random ideas, but let me just toss a pile of words out and see who wants to select a few to use a

    I don't really think there is, but I would assume it would be easier to be more descriptive with lewd things when writing prompts that don't require word limits. Plus, this site isn't exactly SFW so nobody should complain if you happen to get carried away in the first place. XD Just sent in my submission! I'll say, it was hard to top the one that preceded me, that was a pretty good one there. But I'm proud of the work that I put in. Please feel free to leave any feed back on it! ^^

    Challenge 7: Ten Word Challenge

    CHOP! Axe met stump as the burly man slammed his axe down, chopping the stub of wood in half. Reaching his right arm to his forehead, we wiped off drops of sweat that began to accumulate on his brows. Autumn was here, and that meant that he had to prepare the firewood for the winter early. His hands, roughened up from years of physical labor and hunting, grasped onto the handle of his axe as he yanked it from the stump once more, then reaching out to another piece of heartwood, standing it on the stump for him to prepare another swing. His auburn eyes locked onto the wood, taking stea

    Challenge 7: Ten Word Challenge

    Sophie cursed and closed the window of her ongoing analysis. Something was wrong. None of the results made sense. She ran her hand through her silky brown hair and went through her lab notes again. Why were these results so different from the last time she had run her experiments? She had done everything exactly the same as she had done last time. She folded her arms on the table, placed her forehead onto them and emitted a long, frustrated sigh. At days like these she always wondered whether science was the right field for her and what had happened to all that passion that she used to ha

    I'm kind of in the same boat. The words inspired an idea and a start, but I didn't have time to finish. I'll probably turn something in late, too.

    Challenge 6: Smoke, Fog, and Haze

    How did it all began? What brought about this insanity? The whims of a single man condemned his entire tribe to servitude. Was it his fault though? His own judgment fogged by the illusions cast by a fleeting entity. It all started as a dream. A calling from a distant realm. A warm existences beckoning for his soul to reach out. Every time he woke up, the memory of each dream left him in a haze. At first he ignored it. He was a promised leader, a man in line to take the lead of his people, as small of a tribe as they were, they were the proud guardians of a celestial gate. A path between the so

    Voting for Challenge 5: Ten Word Challenge

    Even though I liked @PsychoSexual's story, I felt @Aura's plot was just a bit more creative I guess the only thing I disliked a bit was the whole virginity thing because I understand that this adds a certain thrill to the story but I think the plot was already good without that but that's just my opinion thanks for sharing your two stories with us guys!
