modern-prophetWell, it’s Monday again, and that means it’s time for another Story Challenge! Oh, I should let you know that I have more miniatures (from the Godslayer line put out by Megalith Games) that I’m going to be putting up at some point in the next couple of months. Anyway, let’s get straight into the exercise today. You’ve done this kind of story challenge before, but it is fairly complicated. I’m going to give you a series of criteria including genre, theme, some character archtypes, etc. Your job is to write a story that includes all of the features required in the challenge. If you intend to post it here, please keep it short. However, the complexity of this challenge often requires a longer story.

Theme: Religious Persecution

Genre: Modern Fiction, Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction

Setting: A very large city (think New York City, Mexico City, Paris, or Beijing)

Character Archetypes:

1) A ‘mad’ ascetic prophet

2) A super-intelligent turtle

3) A quantum physicist

4) Harry, the hard-ware store owner


1) An ancient religious text

2) A ‘staff of power’

3) A finger bone… possibly from a long dead religious figure… possibly not
