I apologise if someone has asked this, but if we're feeling greedy and insane, is it frowned upon to roll multiple times so that say a Wizard/Royal Heir storms a Castle by a Lake with his Magic Sword to find the Wand, where they are confronted by the Evil Leprechaun Wizard who plays on their Greed and Naivety to escape with all the Goat Cheese in a massive explosion?

I don't know what the rules should be, but I'm very tempted to say just go with it... although don't forget it should also match the genre ;) That might work for comic, for example, but not so much for epic/grimdark.

First roll, and i'm going with it.
Paranormal romance
Thief
Lake
Magic dagger
Superstitious
Their Mother
Cake
I know just what to call it. 'Love resides in Cake and Daggers'
How do cakes and daggers have a mother? I will work that out! Flour and Iron maybe? I don't even know anymore.

Upon reflection, I think @Rukaio_Alter should be required to choose some other genre than humor.

Such as... Humorous Grimdark, Ridiculous Paranormal, Only-sort-of-Epic.........

This sounds like a really interesting challenge. When I got my results all I could think of was Hyrule Castle from Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, lol. I don't know why, though.

Urban
Royal heir
Castle
Talking Sword
Stingy
Evil witch/wizard
(I choose wizard)
Massive explosion

I can make this work. :D

Nah please, don't tweet mine. I'm not keen to have anyone doing the same story based thing. I guess the purpose here is that it's very unlikely we have the same end stories, thanks to probabilities... But based on the same "rolls" it'd be much harder to be original. I want my witch story to remain my own, if you don't mind.

Oh of course. No problem at all.

Same for anyone else if they don't want it out there.
