I think a Summer Shopping quest would be cool ... come up with your best urban setting shops!
It's not that I don't understand what you're saying.  It's that I don't *agree* with what you're saying.

Muro once did his "What the Heck is That?!" challenge, where he provided an unusual image and everyone had to write up a sub on it. Something like that again would be pretty cool. It would be a fun twist on the "Graphic Required" challenge idea.

I quattro it.  Quarter it. Fourth it? :up:
Let's say I'm all for that.

Wow, that is a large quick reply box.

OK, thought of a challenge as I stalled with the picture.

How about I choose ten interesting words and they have to be used in the quest?

....and I won't use "llama" as one of them.

Got the idea from here: http://www.creativecopychallenge.com/

I agree, but to me that set of words they have on the post look too well-related to be all that difficult :P

Or use 10 random posts from the Free Word Association thread.
Chosen of Aktagarti – Divine Synod Guild – Level 1
Might: 2 | Agility: 3 | Wits: 4 | Charm: 3 | Spirit: 4 | Power: 2

The old man, grey-haired, braid hanging down.
He is clothed in faded brown robes.
His craggy face is turned up, bathed in moonlight;
He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

This is certainly an interesting quest. Sadly, it's not a simple, inspirational theme that easily conjures ideas. The mish-mash of usually unrelated words does nothing to inspire me. I'd like to participate, but I don't think I can make anything sensical out of the selected words. Also: Why are they all nouns? (or at the lest, words typically used as nouns) / I would have preferred some interesting adjectives or verbs, like the archaic word challenge. But I'm just nit picking. Good luck, Questors.
