The Eolian Reel

By:

Beware the Dance of Destruction!

The madcap minstrel Tyrall first performed this frenetic dance tune before the court of Duke Faenkund, a performance that literally brought down the house.  The minstrel’s unearthly music somehow called forth the frenzied tempest spirit Pavanus, which leveled the palace.  Hundreds died.

Since that disaster, arrogant bards and sorcerers have occasionally attempted the wild tune, believing they could tame the destructive storm spirit.  To date, all anyone has achieved is to rain destruction upon themselves.

The challenge I was given was to produce a complete submission, using 75 words or less. It comes to 75 words, not counting the summary or title.

It works! You get the what, when, how, and why, and even the after effects. Herein lies a legend and a challenge for a bard PC!

And since so many citadellians deride endless epics ;) well, here you go!

+.5 for challenge format.

It has the mythical, legend-like qualities that I have always loved. This mythicalness, I think, is what fantasy is about; its about living in a world of legends.

Rural Mystery

       By: Murometz

The PCs are making their way from village to village across a rural hinterland, when they spot a weird sign along a farmstead's fence, with an arrow pointing to the actual farmstead.

"CRAZY DANCING HOES!!"

If they investigate, a rather sedate local farmer, explains to them that for a mere two coppers, they can witness the show for themselves.

The show involves six ordinary, animated hoes "dancing" on a makeshift stage, as the farmer accompanies them by slapping his thighs to keep the beat, and playing on his flute.

If asked how the trick is accomplished the farmer demurs, not wanting to share his "secret".

"If you can get Old Man Purkiss to tell you how he gets his cows to spout poetry, I'll tell you how I make my hoes dance."

In reality, this minor encounter can lead to the PCs discovering that some localized, magical effect is active in the area. All kinds weird phenomena seem to occur in these parts.

Perhaps the PCs have finally found the ley-line of mana energy that they have been searching for! The party's wizard gets excited.
