Weekend Writing Challenge (9th, 10th, 11th)

Lost Possession Challenge


You can learn a lot from a character based off their possessions. Their likes, dislikes, hobbies, as well as their standard of living. They are the things they find that are worth keeping for one of a few reasons. Either that item was very expensive, it is very practical and frequently used, or it holds sentimental value to the character. But what would happen if you character lost an item of importance? For this weekend challenge, every character that signs up must lose possession of an item that they deem important in their lives; whether it is their Heirloom, an item they saved up a lot of money to acquire, something that took them a long time to make, or a gift given to them by someone every important to them. This can take place in one thread or over the course of several threads. And it is up to you whether they manage to recover their lost item or not.



Prizes will be granted to those that manage to write at least one thread that is 2,000 words in length on this topic. There will be bonuses granted for every 1,000 written words above the initial threshold. For those that manage to write 5,000 words in their threads relating to the loss of a possession, there will be a greater prize rewarded. For every 2,500 words written beyond the 5,000 words mark there will be a bonus granted.

Postby Belugnir on November 10th, 2018, 10:36 am

PC name: Einar Belugnir

Item that is to be lost: His trusty poleaxe, possibly his suit of armor as well.

Reason why those are important: Both have more or less kept him alive on multiple occasions and are probably the most worthwhile objects in his possesion.
(In retrospect, while he does loose the mentioned objects and has to work on getting himself new gear, Einar goes through a much more abstract crisis of loss in the threads below, and one that was just barely if at all related to the objects I intended to write about. Either way it was a fun challenge to write. Thanks Van.)

Thread/s:

A Fiend Slayer's Trinkets- 6426

Of Cinders and Silver- 3887
