Willkommen! Ich schreibe mein Blog! Ich schreibe, Ich arbeite Ich spiele, Ich schlafe, weiderholung! I hope that’s at least marginally correct. I’m learning some new words, which is always a good thing. I’m not entirely confident when it comes to person though, and I only know present tense verbs. Anyway, I also just picked up a compilation of all five Hitchhiker’s novels for a penny (plus shipping and handling of course), which I’m rather proud of. Admittedly, I have absolutely no reason to be proud about that, but I’ve decided to be anyway. So, today’s plot challenge is a basic one. I’m going to give you a setting and a few characters, and you’re going to give me story plots that use them.

Your Setting: A south American esque fantasy nation. This is a bronze age nation based on either the Aztecs, the Olmecs, or the Mayans (your choice) in which magic, gods, etc are all real (although, that’s kind of implied when I say ‘fantasy’).

Your Characters:

Tlatahua: Tlatahua is the clan’s best cook. He’s a wizard in the kitchen (possibly literally). He is a kind-hearted person who does his best to take care of everyone in the tribe. He’s actually pretty good at it. Oh, and he killed a god this one time… with a wooden spoon… it’s a thing…

Qaxactlan: The god that Tlatahua killed, who may or may not actually be dead. Either way, he’s not particularly happy with Tlatahua. Qaxactlan was a god of rubbish, rot, and disease. Tlatahua caught him poisoning the clan’s food stores. The rest is history.

Xitik: Xitik is the lead hunter of another tribe. His tribe lives nearby and they often work together with Tlatahua’s tribe.

Shatalun: Shatalun is Xitik’s wife. She’s one of the tribe’s shoulder-women (think female shaman/doctor) and is generally one of the scariest people you’re ever likely to meet. She wears a necklace of jaguar teeth. No one’s really sure if Xitik actually gave it to her…

Xuklu: Xuklu is Qaxactlan’s sibling. He/she can be either gender, depending on the situation, but beyond switching genders Xuklu’s shape-shifting is restricted to minor changes in skin tone and facial appearance. Xuklu is a god/goddess of deception, trickery, and general mischief.
