    What an excellent place to let your imagination run wild here in the tunnels and caverns of, Goblin-town.
    This is the original N.E.S. game where you can post at your leisure without prompts or rounds or deadlines.
    I will start the Chapter with a sentence and leave the sentence with a...
    Someone else will finish my sentence and begin a new one, ending it with...etc. etc.

    Now some guidelines:
    ~ NO SPAMMING or SIGS, please.~

    ~ If two or more members simultaneously post, the first post will be used.~
    ~Please wait at least 1 post before posting again~

    ...Yeti. He was 10 feet 8 inches tall and and about five from hip to hip. He lived in a cave in the great south of the world. In the Dark Lands of the south, he lived. It is said that if he walked out his back door he was in front of Ekkaia, the encircling sea. Now this Yeti was a very old Yeti. He had seen Tom Bombadil come from the outer walls, he had seen Manwe and Melko fight on the Isle of Almaren. Now this yeti knew a...

    ...They found a bird playing in one of their snow forts. They were happy someone else was getting use out of their things, and joined in the fun. Soon all the mountain-side was full of Bears, Badgers, Snakes, Skin-changers, Birds, Dragons, and every other living thing imaginable. (Except humans.) But one day, a human came along, hiking up the mountain-side. He was amazed at the sight of every animal working and playing together. He decided to tell his friend about this amazing sight, and so headed back down the mountain. He told his friends to follow him up Mount Ligizkariz and see the sight for themselves. (Because they did not believe him.) When they saw the animals, they burst out, "...

    ...But the animals could understand English, and so they fled. But before they did this they carefully lifted the snow forts and so started their journey with a heavy burden. But they made good speed, and so when the men came back with their guns they found the place deserted. They took up the trail though, because one of them was a ranger of the North. They saw the prints were many and fresh, and that encouraged them. Suddenly, one of Arathorn's (as he called himself) friends yelled out, "I see them! I see them! Follow me!!!" He ran as quick as he could, and soon overtook the animals. He shot a bird and it crashed to the ground. Arathorn then took his gun and aimed. BOOOM! His gun sounded as...

The young boys, however, determined to prove themselves, gathered together a few provisions, and one of the eldest, Halbarad, became a legend in years to come by stealing the rifle of Arathorn himself. However, just as he was sneaking out of the chieftain's dwelling...

    he slipped right onto his arse in a soupie, slushie mix of chicken poo and snow. Leaves a right proper stain, it does. Ick. One of the other lads came rushing around the corner just then, determined to see what was taking so long, when he saw his friend sitting in the snow, the rifle beside him.
    "Well, whatter you doin' down there? You think this is a right nice time for a plop in the snow? Gimme that," he said reaching for the rifle.
    "No!" refused the other boy. He righted himself, ignoring his freezing wet butt. "I stole it, so it's my gun by rights!"
    The two began tussling over the gun, when the chicken whose poo now saturated the first boy's pants came back around clucking...

    ...mad! I will eat you too if you don't shape up!"
    The boys stared in amazement as the chicken flew away into the twilight. "We had better run home as quick as we can!" Said the first boy, "Or we'll be in big dog doo!"
    "Not we, ​you!" argued the other boy stupidly, "You'll be in big dog doo as it is, but I ain't getten in none tonight!" They went back and forth for so long, that there parents assumed that they had been eaten by an orc. Finally, the friends stormed blindly away, in such a rage, that they ran right passed their houses, and didn't even realize where they were. Suddenly boy #1 ran smack into boy #2! "You monster!" He cried, "When I get that gun back, I'll make you squeak!" With that he grew wings, and flew singing into the trees...

What a strange dream, he thought, as he jumped out of his bed and hurried to dress; for it was cold and he wanted to catch his father before he left to join the other woodsmen who were meeting to discuss the Orc situation in Wilderland. If he was lucky maybe he would be allowed to go. The thought of killing orcs made him.....

    ...excited. He was about to grab his bow off the wall, (because the chicken in his dream had scared him off using a gun), when he heard an orc scream. He dashed out of the room in his bath robe. He found a battle going on outside, and he was in complete terror. He had never seen an orc before, and now he wished he had not been so absurd. As he was racing back inside, he felt an iron grip seize him. He froze. The next thing he knew, he was being dragged out of a hole. Then, he doubly froze, for he saw...

And as his eyes traveled up the crooked arm, he gaped in horror at the grotesque head that sat upon the shoulders of the orc. Moving only his eyes (the rest of him frozen in fright), he saw another orc sitting on a wild.......

    ...But the boy remembered something. He had brought with his bath robe a mace. Suddenly, regaining his strength and melting, he leaped out of the grip of the surprised orc, and swung his mace. He did not know that that mace was made for the slaying of orcs, and it caught on fire when he split the first orc. It brought vigor to him, and he slew everything in sight. He treaded back to his house an told his tale. He was naturally a tall tale teller, but this made the villagers laugh so hard, that even Manw upon Taniquetil could hear them. He was...

    "Get down from there," he screamed. "You'll burn up the ship."
    "No I won't old fool," he yelled back. He kept getting higher and higher.

    Manw sat in silent thought for two months. Then he slowly lifted his head, "Hey you guys!" He called to the two Vanyar sweeping the diamond dust, "Com'n over here! I'v got somethin' to tell ya'!" They hurried over to him. "Please go down into a, and tell the folks down there to please be quite. Also, there in for a surprise: I had a vision that somebody and his friend are going to the sun. Well, those people are the two kids. So please let them know, thanks!"

    ..an eagle was flying by and heard Manw speaking to the two diamond-dust sweepers and decided to take the message to a as well. This eagle's name was, Quidnunc, and he was a very on the go type of eagle; flying far and wide, using his excellent eyesight to spot peoples lips moving and then zooming in to hear what they had to say. He found this activity more amusing than soaring proud and high in the wide blue...

    ...sky. One day, while he was aimlessly flying about above Middle-earth, Quidnunc looked down and spied two Orcs fighting in the Dimrill Dale. Curious, he swooped down out of the sky and landed on an old tree stump to heard what was said. At first he could hear only grunting and snarling. Then in the midst of the noise he caught the word "Elf". He strained his ears and began to listen more attentively...

    ...fatty! "Aww, come now, that's enough," the other Orc grunted. "It's the best we're going to get, unless you feel like raiding the eyries." At this the eagle began to listen more attentively. "It's no use trying to snatch an Elf from Lrien," the Orc continued. "They keep a close watch there, curse them!" He spat with disgust. "Our raids would go well if you actually pitched in," the other Orc snapped. "You never do your share of the job, you lazy maggot!"...

    ... , and on they went, squabbling with each other. Quidnunc raised an eyebrow (do birds have eyebrows?). Even though he was an inquisitive eagle, he had no nose for this type of nonsensical prattle. 'Ca ca', he called. Raid eyries!? Catch an eagle!? Eat and Eagle!? Why an Orc would have to grow.....

    "Fat!" With that he swooped down and ate the Orcs before they could even see him coming. But suddenly, the sky grew exceedingly dark, and then a lighting bolt tore through the heavy air. "Looks like a storms brewing," Thought the eagle. "I had better get out of here!" But even as he spoke another lighting flash rent the air in which he flew, nearly taring his wings apart. Crying out a terrible cry, Quidnunc leapt up with astounding speed and disappeared in the distance, even as another bolt deafened him...

    Mount Doom, where they espied two hobbits struggling on the mountainside. That's odd, thought Fidnunc, What are two hobbits doing way out here? But he didn't have time for this. And besides, Quidnunc seemed to be rather irritated that he had simply dragged him here without any explanation. The two hobbits were going to have to figure this out on their own while he dealt with his brother. Unless...

    ...He could slip away. No, he could not slip away unnoticed. So he wheeled round and flew straight towards Fidnunc. He was so caught off guard that he was bulled over in an instant. As he crashed towards the earth he put forth his strength and landed as soft as he could've wished. Meanwhile, Quidnunc had watched his brother fall, and then he had flown down to the rescue of the two hobbits. To his surprise and horror, he found that they were actually not hobbits, but Nazgl. They were ridding fast on their black horses, and would soon be to the top, in Orodruin. The eagle suddenly put forth his strength and landed as softly as he could've wished. But all was not well. The Nazgl had been alerted by the brushing of his feet and the flap of his wings. Letting out a dreadful streak they turned round with strange agility, and plunged down the mountain-side towards where the eagle was nested. "Feast on his flesh!" They shouted, and charged. At that moment three more Nazgl could be seen galloping over Gorgorath. The eagle lifted his wings and tried to fly away, but the Nazgl put forth their strength and he toppled over to earth.
    Fidnunc in the meantime had heard the terrible screech of the lairi, and come swooping down to his brothers aid. (He was kind, and helped even when he had thrown him to the ground.) He put forth all of his strength, and dove down upon them. Then, the battle began...

    ..as beaks and hooves thudded on the ground; bird and wraith colliding. The stench of the Nazgl and their steads (they were dead after all - the Nazgl not their steeds, duh) was enough to knock the feathers off any bird, even proud birds of prey such as Fidnunc and Quidnunc. But regardless, up they flew and down they dove; talons opened, claws glinting sharp in the sun, and a high scream that....

    ... a flying Umbar Corsair known as 'The Flying Dutchman' suddenly appeared over the party's heads. A pirate, pink of beard with a peg-ear and two chicken legs leaned over the spontaneously combusting side of the ship. "Yarr!" she cried, in a shrill high-piercing tone, "me be Spack Jarrow the pink! Fork up ye ducats and dance the waltz!"

    ...the ship exploded. The scouting party spurred their hoses once again, and rode away from the sight in a cloud of dust. When they reached the Morannon, they called for the Dark Lord, now no more, to open the gate for them. To their surprise it opened, and trillions of orcs, cave-trolls, wild-men, and many more came pouring out. But they stayed their ground. When the armies were all about them, the scouting party called in a loud voice, "Fly you fools!" and then ran to meet the onset. Suddenly in the distance, eagles loomed up, and...

Through their psychic powers, they could form protective bubbles around their body as they floated in mid-air, hurling rocks and other objects based on their whim. "Mew", they would gleefully utter, as they floated from cliff to cliff in the east. When the eagles flew east and met the Mewlips, they...

    ...were astounded. "I thought that Mewlips were nasty creatures! But they're actually cute?" They said. But the Mewlips gave no reply. They just kept floating on, right past them. But secretly, when they were far away, the eagles planned to follow them and learn more about them. So after a delicious breakfast the next morning they set out in pursuit of the 'Mewlips'; or so they thought...

But Helooker was happy. He had seen that his Title Wave of grass had really played the part he gave to it. One day, when he was strolling about, he thought of something. "Hullo?" he said to his body-guard who was extremely large. "Can you go send word to the Wild Wargs that I have some new land for them?" then he quickly added, "But remember! ONLY ONE ACRE! ALL THE REST IS MINE!" With that, he fell asleep. His big body-guard then hurried off towards the goblin-infested mountains, because he...

    ...HUGE troll. The body-guard was about to turn and flee back to his master, but at that moment the troll gave an enormous guffaw. The call froze the blood in the body-guard, and he fell over. Suddenly to his horror, he heard huge feet splashing in the water surrounding the island. To his surprise, as he leaped up, he saw the troll stamping across the far bank! "Yes!" he thought, and plucking up courage, he started down the bank. Then he saw...

Just then the lumpy-headed creature opened it's bleared eyes and croaked to it's green friend, "It should give the nassty thing a bitsy of it's red stuffs, yes, yes." Apparently taking this suggestion as an order, the green fellow leaped across the water towards the frightened body guard...

    And so is my good buddy:
    your spears they cannot harm us,
    your words they cannot charm us:
    and when at last we catch you
    we'll be sure to dispatch you," sang the Spuddy one, adding a "fissssh" for good measure.

    McSpud the wee green man cleared his throat and right on cue let rip with a surprisingly high voice that did his reputation no good at all:

    "Oh we are the fearsome spuds,
    Don't dare try and take our pud.
    Your glares they cannot scare us,
    Your smiles they cannot cheer us.
    We are wild and cruel and mean
    And sure to split your spleen!

    ..."That was easy." Then suddenly he burst into song:

    "Little mashed potatoes, they can't harm us;
    Crazy shining green men do nothing but fuss!
    And as they sing their cute little tunes;
    The big rocks come a'rolling and squash the little loons!
    Old Tomnoddy why do you cry?
    You can't can catch me though you try!"

    Of course he was thinking of Bilbo and his old song with the spiders at this point, because the creature reminded him very much of Gollum. But just as he finished his tune, a thing stranger than he could've imagined suddenly...

Apparently something that he had said in his song had revealed to him a way out of this dreadful place! Desperately he searched for a way to reach the door. But in the midst of his moving about he thought he heard a low creaking sound...

    ....from above. He looked closer and suddenly saw a small black insect fly down. It looked like a Gnat all in BlaCk and it was buzzing around the guard's head. As he looked closer, he saw that it had a human face. The guard swatted at it, alarmed, but could not hit it. He swatted one more time for good measure and hit the Gnat all in BlaCk. It fell to the ground, its letter C in BlaCk lying beside it. It cried out in a thin, itty-bitty, voice.
    'No master! No! Do not swat me! I will loose my letters and when I loose my letters, I die. Please, I will be your friend and protect you and stab anyone that hurts you!'
    The guard felt bad looking down on the ground at the small
    Gnat now all in Blak. He picked up the Gnat all in Blak and put him in his pocket, declaring.
    'I shall call you
    Gnat Blak and you shall be my friend and stay with me....

    The bodyguard lifted his foot and inspected his boot but he could not see any sign of
