    Two warriors brave enough to step up to the Xena challenge! For you @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha, a very serious Xena quote but one I think will work with your cast of amazing characters very well

    And for you @Tarsier, some sage words of advice about survival from the Battle Queen...

    For the lovely Jane Austen Challenge from @Mira Jade I have my fic: The Source of Happiness.

    And I am so excited to see more signups for the Iroh quote challenge! [face_dancing]

    @ViariSkywalker Your quote is about the pride, shame, and what constitutes true humility: "Pride is not the opposite of shame but its source. True humility is the only antidote to shame."

    @earlybird-obi-wan Quote number 4 is a profound reminder of the wisdom people can find by being open-minded: "It's important to draw wisdom from many different places. If we take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale."

    And now for something different….
    The Story Cube Challenge
    I have three sets of Rory’s Story Cube dice: regular, actions and voyages. If you would like to participate, select a set or choose one die from each set, and I will roll three dice for you and post an image in this thread that looks something like this:
    [​IMG]

    Your challenge is to use the three elements you receive in a story. You are free to interpret the images as you like. For example the second image could be a foot, footprint or walking. The image of the die could be used as a literal dice game, any game of chance, or the concept of luck. Be creative, have fun and May the dice be with you! :D

    May I try one dice from each set, please? [face_batting]

    I wasn't going to take any prompts this time around because it's pretty pointless these days. But this is such a cool idea and my wanderlusting little heart can't resist words like 'voyages'. [face_love]

    So if you don't mind, would you please roll the Voyages dice for me? Thanks so much!

    @Raissa Baiard For your very clever and creative Cube Challenge, could I have a roll with one from the voyages set and two from the regulars? Thank you:)

    Great to see Uncle Iroh's gentle wisdom inspiring a lovely and uplifting story about hope@};-

    I have updated the challenge index with a link to it, and I must say that my heart melted reading the story, but I will be posting a review with everything that I loved about it soon[face_love]

    I’m really looking forward to seeing how you interpret that last die, because that is one whose meaning has me puzzled [face_laugh]

    I was wondering if you'd have another musical roulette for us, @Pandora [face_mischief]

    #5 for me, please!

    @ViariSkywalker : I was wondering if you'd have another musical roulette for us, @Pandora [face_mischief]

    As soon as I saw the mini-games were open again, it was a done deal. (I just needed some time to choose between three different ideas, and the skeleton picked this one.) I like to think I'm reliable in this department.

    And #5 is yours! You have received "Le Coucou in E minor" by Louis-Claude Daquin.
