I would like to try an experiment with you all: If you are familiar with the concept of the "Exquisite Corpse" it is used as a means of storytelling. It begins with a premise (sentence or image) that evolves into a completed work. This particular purpose is to identify the story-tellers (yes for selfish reasons), and to also get a sense of whether there are any writers as well as RPers. I will be linking this on Facebook as well, so there may be some cross-pollination. The rules: Please remember this is an evolving story based in the realm of Sosaria. Some may take some time to post their responses. So if someone gets their post in before yours, please adapt accordingly. If you can, please keep your responses/contributions less than 5 sentences. If at all possible, please use character names and lore from within the story itself. Of course, place names and locations should be consistent with the current world. Your first sentence: "As pets go, this one didn't seem to fit into a nice neat category."
