The Storyboard
« on: May 28, 01, 04:23:16 pm CDT »

Back in the daze, when I ran a BBS, we had a forum called 'The StoryBoard'   Here's how it works.. someone starts a story with a two to ten sentence paragraph. The next person to come along writes two to ten more sentences continuing this storyline along.  Simple, right? it is, and it can be a whole lot of fun!  What I used to do is once the story was finished, I pulled it off and permanently placed it as a textfile in a seperate section.  We too can do that, but we need your creative input :)  so get to it!

There are rules, of course....  good thing there aren't many.

1:  Each story must have its own thread. if you're going to start a new story, post a new thread with the subject as the story name.

2:  No pornographic content! Please keep the porn contained in your own mind/bedroom/broom closet/sheep paddock/etc. to yourself and keep the stories clean.  (or you may mail your porn collection to me and i will, ahem, dispose of it properly. :D)

3: Don't use each other as cannon fodder. Don't attack other users, thats just not nice.

4: Keep to the story, do NOT post anything else that is not part of the story to the story's thread. Your post WILL be moderated if you do so.

5: HAVE FUN, or else.  :p

Cool idea. I love the Sandbox. The Sandbox rules. Is there any other place to be aside from the Sandbox.

*Looks at thread title*

Cool idea. I love the Storyboard. The Storyboard rules. Is there any other place to be aside from the Storyboard?

Great idea madmage . . .sounds like it could be a lot of fun.  I'll have to put my  brain in gear to join the fun, but what the heck.

Ya know, the only problem with the story thing is when someone doesn't read the last couple of posts and writes something out of order or that doesn't make sense. But other than that I love it!!!! :p

It doesn't always work, though. And to date, I haven't seen any that need correcting. At least as far as the Stories are concerned.

I think it needs a closing paragraph. Remember, though, that this is just the beginning of the story. Christian will be back again. I promise.

Yes ma'am. I know. I don't know what will happen next to Alex. That is the beauty of this. In some ways this is better than writing the whole story myself.

This is much better than writing the story by yourself! When you get stuck someone will come along and unstick you! This was a great idea Madmage!
