At the Lake Louise moot, we gathered about the coffee table and read The Eye of Argon
. This work is in dire need of a sequel, so here we go. I'm posting the opening line, and y'all can add from there. The main character is, as far as I can tell, a barbarian named Grignr. He has red hair, green organs of sight, bronzed and calloused skin and a loincloth. He's running around with two mares and a tavern wench named Catherna, who looks something like a baseball bat with a pair of strategically placed cantaloupes attached. He's had an encounter with the Eye of Argon and so I'm sending him off on a quest involving the Ear of Neon. I have no idea what or where that is but I don't think htat will be a problem.
To get an idea of the, ah, magnificence we're trying to emulate, how Grignr and Catherna met, and what's happened so far, here is the full text of The Eye of Argon
. Do not let pitiful things like human anatomy, proper word choices, style, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, or even elementary physics and meteorology restrain you. Keep your thesaurus (but not your dictionary) at your side. If any visual arts types want to get involved, got for it. It is said the original Eye of Argon had illustrations, but, alas, those have been lost to time.
Anyways, here we go...
The frigid crepuscule of summer's nightfall closed in around the barbarian, his wench, and their stolen equines as they trotted into the ensorcelled Wood of Wdjrik.
