Silmaril Chapter I: Many Paper Telephones

Quote:
Bilbo wished Gandalf would enter his hole as he used to, uninvited.
Frodo woke and found himself lying in Galadriel55.


At first he thought he had slept late, after a long unpleasant sally that still hovered on the edge of memory.
Quote:
Bilbo has trouble deciding who should come to his party and contemplates if Gandalf will show up even without an invite.
Or perhaps he had been Kitanna?


But the ceiling looked strange; it was flat, and it had dark Hookbills richly carved.
Quote:
Gandalf liked to show up uninvited to parties. So when Bilbo had the audacity to actually INVITE him to one, the wizard was reduced to childish taunts to express his bubbling rage.
He lay a little while longer looking at patches of Legate on the wall...

...and listening to the sound of an Algae.
Quote:
Professional gate-crasher Saruman is offended when he gets an actual invitation to Bilbo's birthday party.
'Where am I, and what is the time?' he said aloud to the Oddwen.


'In the Lommy of Elrond, and it is ten o'clock in the morning,' said a voice.
Quote:
Saruman was shocked, yet not unprepared, when he received an invitation to Robin Smallhood's infamous masquerade.
'It is the morning of Nogrod the twenty-fourth, if you want to know.'


'Gandalf!' cried Frodo, sitting up. There was the old wizard, sitting in an Eönwë by the open window.
Quote:
Saruman of Many Colours comes face-to-face with some of the horrifying consequences of cloning himself.
'Yes,' he said, 'I am here. And you are lucky to be here, too, after all the absurd Runes you have done since you left home.'

Frodo lay down again. He felt too comfortable and peaceful to argue, and in any case he did not think he would get the better of a TGEW.
Quote:
Dumbledore harasses Saruman into letting him wear the White Wizard's clothes.
He was fully awake now, and the memory of his Volo was returning...

Two of the Istari smoked too much pipe-weed.

Quote:
Gandalf discusses his plans for getting into Dol Guldur with Radagast, but Radagast is too busy thinking about the eating habits of fluffy bunnies.
While he was thinking of all these things and trying in vain to bring his Hookbill down to his arriving in Rivendell...

...there was a long silence, broken only by the soft puffs of Gandalf's pipe, as he blew white Legate-rings out of the window.
Quote:
The Istari mused: does eating the Witch-King count as vegetarian?
'Where's Sam?' Frodo asked at length. 'And are the others all sally?'


'Yes, they are all safe and sound,' answered Gandalf. 'Sam was here until I sent him off to get some Oddwen, about half an hour ago.'
Quote:
The five wizards are upset that the Burger King of the Nazgul was sorted into Gryffindor, yet their desires for beef divide them.
'What happened at the Lommy?' said Frodo. 'It all seemed so dim, somehow; and still does.'

There may have been nothing wrong with Lord Nazgűl's Last Big Mac Supper as such, but the Istari did think his open support of Catalan independence went quite over the top.

Many elements of the PT really blew my mind.

I was especially fond of Lommy and Volo's drawings, but I thought almost all of the drawings had a bit of brilliance.

I love how Oddwen's drawing style is similar to my own, I also enjoyed that she found a way to include Gryffindor.

It says a lot about Nogrod that he got 'Catalan independence movement' from a two coloured scarf.

Eonwe's sentence gave me the giggles!

But Legate's Gandalf will give me nightmares!!

I giggled at all of it, especially at the memories of Legate's Gandalf, Volo's "flash" of brilliance, Nogrod's middle wizard and Lommy's response to my sentence. Well done, all!

Thank you to aganzir for modding and for the images conjured up by your connecting narration.

This had so many great drawings, and also this time especially the sentences made an impact, some quite innovative things in there! My absolutely favourite twist is the Catalan Independance Movement And of the pictures, both the Last Suppers by Lommy and Eönwë, and also Rune's Saruman and the googly-eyed clone behind him is an incredible work of art! Wow! I also like a lot Greenie's (I like how the Wizards are thinking of wheels and rabbits and mushrooms), Volo's and Nogrod's (what kind of psychedelia is that?) creative art. And special thumbs up to sally for the original image of Witch-King.

And, of course, thanks to Aganzir for putting it all together and most of all, keeping it swift and flowing! I'd say this is a trend we should keep in the future as well.

I skimmed the results yesterday in a sleep meds induced and fever powered pseudocoma while having difficulty to string two sentences into a coherent narrative and was freaked out by Agan-gets-things-done-zir's story, seriously, I shuddered.
Thanks an excellent first sentence and I'm proud of continuing the innuendo - it must be in the air I and Agan breathe in this suburb unofficially called Fairy Land. (It's probably just as well that I didn't draw the first picture.)

The Catalan and da Vinci stuff were also my favourite moments. Eönwë's picture should enter the post-modernist hall of fame.

I don't entirely get it how Legate came up with that sentence of his, but it's an excellent question. Also laughs at what I take to be a Firefly reference in your picture.

What's Noggie's phantasmagoria based on? Painting, album cover?

Kitanna's creative use of Bilbo's photo I enjoyed.

Good stuff! Moarz!

True story: there was a citizens movement in the 50s to name our suburb Fairyland. It didn't pass.

Are you implying I'm ever anything but prim and proper? I'm dismayed.

I must stress I'm really thankful that almost everyone respected the time limit in this game. It's not very much fun if the game drags and you're not able to tell when your turn comes up, and I bet it's stressful for the mod to engage for months at a time. I hope we can maintain this pace in the future as well. And remember - if you're busy, you can ask to be moved down the list even without a modly prompt!

This was brilliant! I loved all of it, but from Legate's sentence onwards I was giggling aloud. Lommy's picture? And Eonwe's? I also liked Rune's Saruman, and the way Gryffindor turns into the Catalan independence movement.

I just realized that Lommy's purple wizard looks like he's giving the WK the finger.

PS: and just for fun, cutting out everything except for the first and last sentence:

Bilbo wished Gandalf would enter his hole as he used to, uninvited.

The Great Dictator of Angmar indoctrinates the virtues of a free market to a band of dwarves.


Just... wow.

PPS: I'm in for the next game, whenever it will be, but I am away starting a week tomorrow and until August 10, so... whatever needs to happen to my spot on the list.

I only got to see this now... Hilarious!

As soon as it finally got to deviate from the original sentence it was just genius all along.

And like somebody already said, this time it was oftentimes the sentences that kind of pushed the story on towards new paths and which made one smile ever wider.

That said, extra kudos to Eönwë's and Lommy's rendering of the Last Supper, Algae's dreamy smoking wizards and Legate's wild cartoon on Gandalf's journeys...

And yes. Thanks to Aganzir for making us meet our deadlines. That is no small feat.

No no, I get that part - I don't get how we got a broom and a golden outfit on the WK in the first place! These things just make the PT way better than a RL Broken Telephone. There the context jut gets muddles because of mishearings, but here some weird additional detail can be picked up on and turned into a whole new burst of weirdness.

While it is fun, it isn't quite representative for the game. I find it rather impressive that Gandalf/Wizard(s) is a recurring element right until the last sentence.

That, in fact, is not really that impressive. Gandalf or Wizard(s) of any kind are kind of hard to confuse with anything. Even a Hobbit may get extrapolated for, say, Tom Bombadil or for some fat person, the only thing you can mix up Wizard with is exactly Dwarves, but even then it's pretty likely that had the PT continued, sooner or later the Dwarves would change into Wizards at some point. Gandalf, Gollum and Alien are the type of characters who are very difficult to get rid of.

Hellooooo is there going to be a reawakening extravaganza for Paper Telephone too? Any takers for modding? I don't trust myself to do it as I'd likely just take it in turns to get over-stressed about it and forget about it.

1420!

I'll be nice and mod for you bunch. It's not like I was doing anything else but sitting at the office all summer anyway.

List of players (will be shuffled before the game starts)

Greenie
Firefoot
Galadriel
Agan
Nogrod
Pitchwife
Legate
Sally
Kath
Hookbill


I think a couple of more players and we can get the ball rolling. Translation: sign ups still open and more than welcome.

Also because I mod we're doing doubles. If I could double participate myself I totally would, but I doubt it'd be fair. If I'm feeling creative though I will start the game with a picture...

Yes, anyone out there?

We need one more person to have a complete round. Let's start when that person turns up (and your moddess finds a sec to draw or photoshop a masterpiece) or on July 1st anyway. After that people I can still take two people if there are more enthusiasts, but only if there are two (not one).

Please keep an eye on your PMs (e-mail notifications are a good idea). I'm going to give people a bit more time than the last round since it's summer an I assume people may be busy, but if you don't write your sentence in 3 days or draw your picture in 5 days, I'm going to shuffle your turn. I also may harass you on Facebook or something, but I'd rather not use my energy on that. Also, keeping an eye on the list every now and then and letting me know in advance if you suspect you'll be too busy when it's your turn is appreciated.

Lommy - draw
Hookbill - write
Kath - draw
Nogrod - write
Sally - draw
Legate - write
Galadriel - draw
Pitchwife - write
Agan - draw
Firefoot - write
Greenie - draw
