Ten Words.

Penny Arcade has sponsored a contest. Ten Word Stories.

My entries:

“What can it hurt?” Fizzwidget chirped happily. Fiery explosions followed.

Twenty-five triumphantly trounced Illidan. I guess they were prepared.

Brooding, icy Northrend waits for gallant adventures with new hairdos.

Elegance of dots and curses reduced to shadow bolt spam.

Sylvanus, dread queen, in Northrend takes Arthas, dread king. Checkmate.

  1. I agree about the misspelling.. But a Banshee Queen can still be a dread queen. Same thing with Arathas. Though I agree that “Banshee” and “Lich” might have been better word choices than “dread”. I wanted to draw the parallel between the two lore figures. Calling them out individually makes them different. Referring to them both as “dread” makes them the same. I wanted them to “feel” like the same to help with the chess analogy. (also I couldn’t quite get Sylvans to be the black queen and Arathas to be the white king..or vice versa it just didn’t work)

    🙂
