It's December! Let's forget about the many ills of this particularly tumultuous year by drinking ourselves silly with the alcoholic beverages of our choice. If you're a teetotaler, don't worry. Just playing this game will make you want to reach for a pint to wash down the nonsense we're about to collectively produce as a forum.
Christmas Poem is back after five years of absence! This is the game where we all put our airy noggins together to write the best festive poem possible before year's end.
- I will begin with a pre-written line. Members will then add to the poem by contributing one line at a time.
- That means wait for at least one more member to post before you come back with an additional line.
- Each line needs to rhyme at least once. The objective is for every line in the poem to have at least one subsequent line that rhymes. For example:
- Member A contributes with: "Oh, the weather outside is frightful"
- IF the above line has yet to rhyme, Member B MUST follow up with something like "But the fire is so delightful."
- ONLY THEN can Member A or Member C proceed with a non-rhyming line, e.g. "And since we've no place to go"
- Try and make sure the rhyming at least sounds phonetically plausible. It doesn't have to be perfect, but don't stretch it too far. Use this if it helps.
- As with our standard writing events hosted by yours truly, let's keep our lines related to Final Fantasy or Final Fantasy Forums in some way.
- The lines need to logically connect in some way. For example:
- Member A: "Vivi reluctantly removed his hat for all to see"
- Member B: "Garnet screamed at the sight and started to flee."
- This game will end at midnight on the dot on 28 December GMT, which would be 1am CET on the 28th, 7pm EST on the 27th, 4pm PT on the 27th etc.
- I will keep a tally of how many lines are posted per member.
- The more lines you contribute, the more EXP you acquire at the end!
- Extra EXP if after the time limit is up your last line is the very final line of the poem!
Now for the poem!
