Didn't Gil offer his help? It might be worth a try asking him if he is still of that opinion...

And if not, I don't want to wait weeks...

I'll make a final decision by, say, Friday, and then move on or post up.

I guess you're the one affected by it, so I'll take that as permission.

Let's get this train-wreck a-rollin'!


A party of drunken Hobbits thrashed their way through the Old Forest in search of sandwiches. Instead they found Tom Bombadil, naked and dancing with the Barrow Wight. The song they sang went like this…

Taking this message back home, it was over-heard by Lommy. She almost exploded with horror and amusement. She hurried off to the nearest public toilets to paint this on the walls…

Fighter pilot, Oddwen, spotted this and so deliberately crashed her plane into the ground – the debris made an interesting pattern…

This song was heard by Laurinquë who rushed home to tell her deaf flat mate about it through the medium of paint.

Loslote dropped her ice cream thanks to the marching Ents. Her anger was so great that she used the spilled ice cream to make this picture…

This shout reverberated so loudly that it smashed the glass house belonging to Legate. He managed to sweep up the debris into an interesting pattern…

The undercover super hero, Aganzir, heard all of this and decided to expose the Mayor’s failings by painting the sky to look like this…

The achedemics were unimpressed. Especially satansaloser2005, who demanded the paper be removed. So intent was she that she rearranged the whole university she worked in to look like this…

Hidden in the clutter of said mantelpiece was Eonwe. With agility that would embarrass an elephant, he hopped to the telephone and then broke it apart before rearranging it into this pattern…

Volo, the phone operator, almost spilled his tea all over the control panel. He avoided doing so by shoving an ent into a wood chipper. The chippings flew out of the window and made this pattern in the air.

Durelin, being old and crotchety, was annoyed by all this singing and wanted the neighbourhood to return to sanity. The best way seemed to be turning all the gardens into pictures that looked like this…

Tree lover and local crazy person, TheGreatElvenWarrior, returned from battle at just the time when this statement was being splashed across the news. She was so upset that she called upon all the ents to gather together and trample the city into this shape…

Prison guard, Blind Guardian, was amused by all of this shouting and decided to share her feelings with the world. So, she went to the high court and painted this in a judge’s backside…

Nogrod was the court artist. He drew many things. When he heard Laurinque say this stuff he chopped his own nose off and made it explode, creating this picture on the table…

Rune was in that audience and was not pleased with what he heard. Indeed, he was so offended that he took hold of the nearest child and chiselled this image into their face…

Sea captain wilwarin538 took the message, read it and then laughed until the whole ship sank. The pattern it left in the water looked strangely like this…

Thumbs up

Beregond was a member of BI-5, the international espionage agency based in the Barrow Downs, and when he heard this report, he fired all of his staff and sent this picture to all new media simultaneously…

Said person was Galadriel55. She was more than a little annoyed by this disruption to her sleeping cycle, as she liked to ride her bike while asleep. Waking up, she crashed into a wall and left this pattern…

The shock of the message brought everyone to their knees. Then, as the silence returned, the people rose and blinked in the new light. Another Paper Telephone had ended.

Anyone up for another round?

I am willing to mod the next round, unless someone else is just dying to do it.

In which case, go die and then I can mod, you silly.

Bahahaha!

Oddie, Lauri, Begerond - I love your pictures.

Di, Mnemo, ed, Pitch, Eönwë - I love your sentences.

Sally, I really like your use of the phantom.

And I should probably tell you that I couldn't be irritated with Lommy anymore (because of a household chore argument) after seeing her picture.

I wants moar Paper Telephone.

Another great episode has been completed... I can't wait for 2014!

Great stuff by everyone, but I'll mention a few:
I love Greenie's cloned Gollums
Aganzir's drawing is creeeeepy!
Nogrod's passerine Gollums, lol..
Also loved Galadriel's "balancing" Marx.

Rune's interpretation made me laugh!
Sally's really changed things up at the end.

So that's where Aladdin came from! But I still don't get the green eggs...

Absolutely hilarious!

I'm definitely up for the next PT...

Edit: wow, I am slow! Beregond's remark about 2014 just got to me (like 10 minutes after reading it)! And now I can't stop laughing!

Yeah, I couldn't figure out where Sally saw some of those things in the picture, but a little creativity makes things interesting.

I love how Hookbill turned from Hookbill to Hunchback back to Hookbill again.

For whoever mods the next game, I'm in. I've got a shiny new scanner for even faster pictures!

Aganzir has multiple versions of that painting in her room. As the night deepens, their tiny "Om nom nom"s become louder and louder.

Game ONE, main game

Aganzir
satansaloser2005
Beregond
Galadriel55
TheGreatElvenWarrior
Pitchwife
Legate
Hooketybill
Aganzir
Rune
Thinlomien

OK with playing Mega Super Ultra Über Game:

Game TWO, quick game, simultaneous with the first game.

Pitchwife
Galadriel55
Legate
Aganzir
satansaloser2005

Am I correct in assuming you all desire to play again?

What do you all think of me trying to run two games at once, with the same players? You would get to draw for one game and write for the other. I could stagger them so you're not getting both at once. It would certainly be quicker than a double game with many players.

I could even run a second game with fewer people (while doubling?) or something if you feel up to it.

Hm, my pic and TGEW's sentence seem to be missing. ???

But that detracts little from the mind-blowing effect of the whole thing. So many great pictures here, it's really hard to pick favourites! I especially like Agan's Goya-troll, BG's and wilwa's collages and Diamond's green delirium, but Oddwen's Tevildo-Attack is beyond awesome. Hell hath no fury like a cat written out of the legendarium, obviously.

Anyway, I'm in for the next round.

I don't mind being in just one game, or being in both. Whatever works out best. (Great idea, by the way!) But either way, I want to try writing a sentence this time!

Great stuff, and yea, count me in for the next game.

I think running two simultaneously is not a big deal, if the Mod can manage it (and not mix up two games together), of course it's very likely one of the games will eventually become faster than the other - but that's actually better, so that we aren't "overstuffed" when the horror is revealed. The only thing is hoping that it won't come to a player drawing/writing two things at the same time, but that will anyway depend on luck and on how much the two PTs' lengths spread...

I don't think that will be a problem. There's always an opportunity to switch places with someone in the list, unless you're the last one in both games.

Oh, I guess I should sign up for this, too!

The two at once might be difficult to manage and you'll have to be REALLY careful.

If we can keep several going around a room of (mostly) drunk people, this might not be too bad.

Any emails or PMs I send will be clearly marked GAME ONE and GAME TWO, and will have everyone label their replies to me likewise.

I'll give say, a week before we start, unless we get a stampede.

I agree, it is fascinating how there can be an unspoken consensus about what you associate with certain downers, in Hookbill's case people agree that he reminds them of what can best be described as a deform lunatic.

How anybody could mistake me for Karl Marx, is beyond me though.

It helps me sleep.

I'm in for both games. I don't think it will be too difficult as long as our dear Oddwen is careful (as we all know she is ).

Oddwen, I would like to note that I also wanted to participate in both of the games (unless there are some people who haven't been playing lately and would like to get their space, in that case, if there was too many of us, I am fine with just one game).

Alrighty then! Everything looking good here? Anyone need to be moved or do they have schedule issues?

Would anyone like to join the short game if Legate doesn't want to draw twice in such a short space?

I don't mind, but if somebody comes and wants to draw instead of me, I don't object either.

So where is Pitchwives picture? It goes right on to Loslote's.
