    Default Fantasy Title Chain Game

    This is a game I used to play with friends in school, only it was with movie or song titles. Basically, you get a title of a fantasy novel or story, then you choose a word in the title and give another title with the same word in it. You can't use the same word twice in a row (unless the previous title consists of only one word). Compound words may be broken up, plural forms may be made singular and vice versa. No prepositions can be used, words like and, of, or, or the. Basically, any word in the title that isn't capitalized. To make new moves easier, it would help if the word you were repeating was CAPITALIZED in your new title so players know which word they can't use.

    Let me give an example of a few rounds. Say we started with this title;

    Sword of Truth

    You could use either 'sword' or 'truth'. Let's use sword and play;

    SWORD of Shannara

    Since 'sword' is capitalized that leaves us with 'Shannara'. So let's play;

    Elfstones of SHANNARA

    'Elfstones' is a compound word, so we can break it up and use either 'elf' or 'stones'. Also, we could change to the plural or singular forms, changing 'elf' to 'elves' or 'stones' to 'stone'.

    That should be enough of an example. Also, it's easy to cheat at this game and look on Amazon or some other site, but it's better if you rely simply rely on memory. I'm sure most of us have read a lot of fantasy in our day. And if you want to make a brief comment about the novel or story you pick, that won't hurt anything. Just make sure it's not easily confused with the title. I'll start the official chain off with the first novel I read based on Dungeons & Dragons;

    Saga of Old City

    Okay, seriously, what?

    ...I dismissed that possibility as being too unlikely even for Xihirli. Obviously I underestimated his level of Stupid Evil. :P

    The SPEAR of Destiny Part One: Black Sun Reich

    I know it's pretty gauche to respond to one's own post, but I didn't want the thread to disappear. Couldn't think of a fantasy title off hand. But I'd heard of the spear of destiny and assumed there must be a spear of destiny book. Checked amazon and there WAS a series about steampunk, occult Nazis. So just a reminder, the next answer should contain either 'destiny' or 'black' or 'sun' or 'reich'.
