    I've always been a fan of Neil Gaiman for interesting premises (his storytelling sometimes comes up a little short). Stealing some ideas from him:

    ++The "Old Gods" (Norse, Babylonian, Greek/Roman, Inuit, Egyptian, etc) are still around, but have fallen from power and are forced to take "mundane" jobs. Illustrate one of these gods in their new life (stolen from the Novel "American Gods")

    ++Illustrate the short story "Chivalry" (The idea is very simple: A late-middle-aged widow finds the Holy Grail in an Oxfam shop and decides it will look perfect on her mantle. All is well until Sir Galahad turns up on her doorstep, hoping to complete his quest in her modest living room)

    ++"The Sweeper of Dreams"-- This one is short enough I'll just type it out:

    "After all the dreaming is over, after you wake, and leave the world of madness and glory for the mundane day-lit daily grind, through the wreckage of your abandoned fancies walks the sweeper of dreams.
    Who knows what he was when he was alive? Or if, for that matter, he ever was alive. He certainly will not answer your questions. The sweeper talks little, in his gruff gray voice, and when he does speak it is mostly about the weather and the prospects, victories and defeats of certain sports teams. He despises everyone who is not him.
    Just as you wake he comes to you, and he sweeps up kingdoms and castles, and angels and owls, mountains and oceans. He sweeps up the lust and love and the lovers, the sages who are not butterflies, the flowers of meat, the running of deer and the sinking of the Lusitania. He sweeps up everything you left behind in your dreams, the life you wore, the eyes through which you gazed, the examination paper you were never able to find. One by one he sweeps them away: the sharp-toother woman who sank her teeth into your face; the nuns in the woods; the dead arm that broke through the tepid water of the bath; the scarlet worms that crawled in your chest when you opened your shirt.
    He will sweep it up-- everything you left behind when you woke. And then he will burn it, to leave the stage fresh for your dreams tomorrow.
    Treat him well, if you see him. Be polite with him. Ask him no questions. Applaud his teams' victories, commiserate with him over their losses, agree with him about the weather. Give him the respect he feels he is due.
    For there are people he no longer visits, the sweeper of dreams, with his hand-rolled cigarettes and his dragon tattoo.
    You've seen them. They have mouths that twitch, and eyes that stare, and they babble and they mewl and they whimper. Some of them walk the cities in ragged clothes, their belongings under their arms. Others of their number are locked in the dark, in places where they can no longer harm themselves or others. They are not mad, or rather, the loss of their samity is the lesser of their problems. It is worse than madness. They will tell you, if you let them: they are the ones who live, each day, in the wreckage of their dreams.
    And if the sweeper of dreams leaves you, he will never come back."

    Man and his shadow or the man and his runaway shadow. There is a book about this story when shadow ran from the man and become more successful and suggested him to become her shadow, I think, even shadow number two. Eugene Schwarz is the author of the story.

    Kian3001, Looks like we might get our long awaited duel afterall.


    I'd love to see this event get some kind of coverage. By ImagineFX or something. This is too epic to go under the radar. Cheers to the finest creative community on the net. And Cheers to you, Cody for setting all of this up for everyone.

    hey, I just realized something Cody (yeah, I'm slow on the draw sometimes). When you ask 271 people to toss some ideas around, you get no place, fast. So I, as Ilaekae said already, will sit back and patiently await the new topic to emerge from the Juggernaut of Thunderdome. I encourage others to follow our example.

    i can't get the damn "enter the tomb" topic outta my head.
    just think about it: either a mournful funeral cortege,or a pompous one,or just a hero entering the cave,or big dwarfen halls with lotsa sarcophages,or zombies runnin around or...you get the idea.
    sorry,i'm just ramblin...i guess i'll sit back aswell.

    It helped churn some ideas for me, I've got a topic idea in mind that might be pretty cool. Thanks for the ideas everyone, but you can all shut the hell up now.

    Fuck the prize. If i slaughtered the better part of THIS community that would be more of a reward enough.

    (that being said, if i DO win i'd very much like a free tuition. )

    Cody, if you think coverage would be a decent idea, I'd be more than happy to try to send out a few e-mails to places. You've got quite a burden as it is.

    This tournament is already far far more epic than the CGTalk challenges, in my opinion. More personal.

    My pm's are all wacky, I cleared out a bunch of room and still am getting full inbox errors. Can anyone help a brotha out?

    And what's all this talk of prizes? The workshop tuition was an unexpected gift from the Manley which was fantastic, but don't expect any prizes to come your way. Maybe some will turn up, maybe they won't Does it matter?
