Games about Discworld books

Postby CrysaniaMajere » Thu Jan 07, 2010 6:28 pm

I played a little but mostly followed the NewYearQuiz , and I really like this sort of games...
Yesterday wasn't particularly a nice day so I started playing with pen and paper as I did when I was younger... I admit I enjoyed writing little stories using songs titles, that kind of game... so having nothing better to cheer me up I started a little story with clues to TP-related-book-titles, not only novels... so now that it's done I thought I could just write it here, and if anyone wants to play will be wellcome to try :D
It can be for everyone, not only for those who had read all the books because it refers to the titles.

Please, don't be too hard on me, remember I was having quite a bad day :oops: just something to help me pass the time without thinking to other reality-related-things.. :oops:

here it goes, it can be read like a little story but every sentence refers to a different book-title (it can be related to the whole title, to a word of the title, or maybe inspired by a title :wink: )

1 we are not born to live alone in a cage,
2 you think it's bizarre, me saying that we were born to live together
3 and to protect each other?
4 I don't, and I tell you: walk everywhere, look in every corner
5 search everywhere for a love so deep
6 visit any place you like
7 see the whole world if you think it's necessary
8 ask the old and the wise
9 but even after 1, noone, 100.000
10 you will find that I'm right
11 so let's not waste a second
12 of our lives with trivial, material matters,
13 because you know you won't live forever;
14 so lift your head up and look at the bright night
15 where a falling star is coming down,
16 and listen only to the sound of my voice.
17 I've been unexpectedly happy as in a fairytale
18 I've been alone as a survivor, I've been greatly admired
19 I've known incredible friends and learn many things
20 I've seen children being spoiled and treated with too much attention
21 I've seen powerful people giving orders
22 to a large number of others who had to obey
23 I've felt the desire to run away, outside this bounderies
24 far far away from this known places
25 but it was not my home, not my country
26 it was no more where I could live, there was no life there for me
27 nothing, and nobody, was really real,
28 because I have no power alone, there's nothing I can do.
29 I looked for you but I couldn't find you
30 and I felt lost. You had stolen my heart
31 and left me to cry my eyes out in pain
32 so loud that when you said "I'll be back" your words were lost to me.
33 You're not such a devil person
34 you will never curse me to a boring wasted life.
35 I was craving for your love, a hunger that made me mad.
36 We had a fight and it was only my fault
37 but you forgave me. You said you loved me.you said nothing could break my charm on you
38 and that you would have been by my side at all hours.
39 I felt so happy and so light I could hardly keep to the ground.
40 we got married on December 21st,
41 in front of our parents,
42 a nice ceremony everybody liked.
43 it's wonderful how our lives shine so bright now that you're mine and I'm yours

Now, fortunately tomorrow I won't be here so I can hide myself until saturday.. :oops:

OK Tony. We'll use your list as the deifinitive list.

I'm sure of

3 = Guards Guards
18 = Last Hero
20 = Small Gods

I'm pretty sure of

5 = Diggers
10 = The Truth
27 = Unseen Academicals
32 = Thud
39 = Hatful of Sky

And DJ's Wintersmith for 40

I'm not sure about your

Thief of time
Mort
Jingo

Check out my list and anything you're sure about add it to your definitive list.

There have only been 37 DW books so I think 27 is Dark Side of the Sun or Death's Domain map. 7 is either the Globe or the map of DW.

why not? :lol: so now you've got 33 and 40 right.

Pooh was right in being sure about 3, 5, 10, 18, 20, and 40.
He also had 2, 8, 11,12,15,21,22,30,41,43 right, but NOT 27,32,39.

Tony had: 2,13,34,43.
