So, a few threads down, there is a discussion about games as inspiration for writing. The conversation resonated with me because I use ideas, events, themes, and plot points from my gaming experiences to influence my writing all the time. In particular, as somebody mentioned, Microscope is great. Archipelago II, has generated some of my favorite fictional experiences of all time. In fact . . . I wrote a novella derived in part from stories in those two games. (It's called Wizard with a Gold Tooth
. I'd be honored if some of you would check it out.)
If anyone else has written stories that have their seeds at the gaming table, I'd love to check them out! So, please feel free to post stuff in this thread.
And, if you read my story, thank you in advance! I hope you like it.
