I'd be also up for playing. I can also mod, if nobody else felt up to it.

I think at this point it's easier to say when am I not up for playing. I should probably be signed up by default.

I hesitate to mod because of my mild technological incompetence which has hindered past PTs that I tried to run. However, I can also give it another shot and do my share of modding if everyone wants to play.

Argh! With all the werewolf madness I missed the reveal!

Seriously, Lommy, what was with that opening sentence?! Also I have to admit, because both you and Legate have mentioned it, I traced that horse!

I think Nog's warrior rodent is brilliant but poor Shadowfax. From a king among horses to, well, a rat.

It took me so many reads of G55's sentence to understand why Form's picture had a ruler in it ...

Lommy I adore your picture but you definitely started a nudity trend - this is meant to be a family friendly forum!

Greenie I am deeply concerned about what has happened to you over lockdown. Any other odd scenes around your house you'd like to share?

Overall a great Paper Telephone! Thank you for modding, Lommy, and I would absolutely be up for another round.

You'll have to wait until the next round! (I'm definitely in for another one, whoever is modding!) Seriously though, I saw that sentence and went, a horse and a naked hobbit, no way am I going to be able to draw that.

There were some really impressive pieces this time, especially Lommy, Pitchwife and Baranduin's gorgeous pictures. Legate's long-suffering David and Rune's armed to the teeth -pun also caused giggles.

I missed out on the last round, but I'd be interested in signing up if another round starts up again soon.

All right-y, so is there anybody who would like to mod? If not, I can take it upon myself.

I didn't actually take a look at the finished game until now, even though Brandy told me it was done ages ago. What a great round!

Also, you can't blame any nudity on me! I was only describing the picture!

Legate, I think you're modding this one. I would volunteer, but I am rather a luddite these days, and there's no way I'd be able to do all the stuff required to get pictures on the Downs.

Very well! So, thus far, we have:

Lommy
Rune
Nogrod
G55
Kath
Hui
Greenie
Brinn
Rikae

TGEW, should I read your post as a sign-up as well?

Did I overlook anyone?

And Eönwë mentioned just before the last PT that he missed the sign-up - are you up for this one?

Otherwise, we already have a respectable number, so we could start this up soon. But I am certainly open for sign-ups (and we can take new people in even after it's started, provided it isn't too far). We'll be doing doubles, obviously...

All right, I randomised the list of so-far-confirmed sign-ups and the situation looks like this:

Legate- write
Brinn - draw
Rune - write
Eönwë - draw
Rikae - write
Pitch - draw

G55 - write
Kath - draw
Greenie - write
Hui - draw
Lommy - write
BG - draw
Nogrod - write
TGEW - draw

Brinn - write
Rune - draw
Eönwë - write
Rikae - draw
Pitch - write
G55 - draw
Kath - write
Greenie - draw
Hui - write
Lommy - draw
BG - write
Nogrod - draw
TGEW-write

If nobody has any last-minute remarks or objections to their order in the line-up, I will come up with a sentence and then we can slowly start.

I don't look at the Downs for a week and I miss Paper Telephone. I was volunteering to play, but as it's been a few days, I don't know if I'm too late now.

Nope, you're just at the right time and spot - I will fill you in. Splendid! Now we have a balanced complement

And for the record, we're soon one-quarter through...
