Flash Fiction Challenge: Who The Fuck Is My D&D Character


Click this link:

Who The Fuck Is My D&D Character?

It is amazing.

You are going to click that link and you are going to use what you get there to write 1000 words of flash fiction. Now, some of you may not want to write fantasy or something so plainly D&D-esque, and that’s cool — I’d then suggest clicking it, taking the result and using it as inspiration. Borrow some part of it for your character. Adjust to the genre you so desire.

So, 1000 words.

Write it at your blog or online space.

Link to it here in the comments so we can all read.

Due by next Friday, the 16th, noon EST.

Oh, and welcome to the first flash fiction challenge of the year.

If this is your first time at Write Club:

YOU HAVE TO WRITE.

  1. I had that weird idea to combine my D&D character…
    A FUCKING GRAVE DWARF WIZARD FROM A FORGOTTEN ELVEN MONASTERY WHO DOESN’T BELIEVE IN HYGIENE
    with Mr. Chuck Wendig’s famous beard! Hehe.

    998 words. I think the story needs revision, but for now it’s the best I can do. Hehe.

    (Sorry for the “under construction” website)

  2. For the sombre tiefling druid from an unchartable isle afraid that the party will kill them if they try to leave, “Answering the Call”

    “The raven cocked her head and stared at the sleeping woman who’d summoned her…”

  3. As someone who is trying to branch out to new genres I’m equally delighted and pissed off by my character. A freindly gnome fighter from a maximum security prison whos just trying to get by.

    I honestly don’t know how this is going to work but I’m excited to try it out

  4. Hello, hello! *waves, hands out cookies, trips over over self, drops cookies everywhere, picks self up nonchalantly* Good to see y’all.

    My prompt was “A suspicious gnome wizard from a village without a tavern who always keeps their promises.” Haven’t written fantasy for a very long time, so this was fun!

    And the story:

    • Good one, Kat, but what’s the “Pathfinder Setting”? Sounds like something from heavy fantasy. JJ

      • It’s one of the campaign settings from tabletop RPGs. It’s very similar to Dungeons and Dragons – in fact it’s basically a spinning of DnD 3.5 – but it’s by a different company and it has a rather fleshed out system of gods, races, countries, stories, etc. Thanks for reading!

      • Awww, thanks for the kind words everyone!

        As for the Pathfinder Setting, it refers the to the tabletop RPG. Pathfinder is a spin off of Dungeons and Dragons 3.5, and it has it’s own setting with gods and races and countries. It’s basically where I got Gorum from.

  5. Whelp, after a year of lurking like a cat when you close the bathroom door, I’m finally taking off my water-wings, holding my nose and jumping into the pool of fiction shorter than 30,000 words.

    My prompt: snobby half-elf sorceress from a bustling city who deserted from the army.

  6. It’s my first time at Write Club, so I had to write. And I loved it! I’ve followed Chuck’s ravings for a while, but this year I’m finally getting into the flash fiction challenges.

    Here’s my story inspired by an old D&D campaign I played in and “Check this shit out, I’m going to be a fucking selfish tiefling monk from the Iceberg Sea who has had it up to here with everyone’s crap.”

    • Forgot to mention the prompt:
      YOU THINK YOUR CHARACTER IS COOL? MY CHARACTER IS A FUCKING
      SASSY DWARF BARD FROM A WEALTHY VINEYARD WHO FINDS IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SPEAK TO GIRLS

  7. I got “Irritable Half-elf paladin from the Pirate Infested Isles of Woe who once survived a Boiling Cauldron.” That was a lot of fun. And now I want to write more of it – just to see where it goes.

  8. Oh, thanks for the link! While not useful in a flash fiction sense (for me anywho) the random generator provided a most interesting background idea for a secondary character in the story I’m writing that’s (loosely, oh so very loosely) based on an old D&D character. The idea was: dragonborn mage that is petrified for two hundred years. That’s gonna have some serious psychological consequences.
