I told myself I'd do a series of three rolls and then pick one, sort of like what @tebakutis did. Ended up with:
  • Comic
  • Pirate
  • Dungeon
  • Magic Dagger
  • Superstitious
  • Leprechaun
  • Goat Cheese

So, @m3mnoch, does this sound like a theme which will interest you much?

20% ;D
Anyway, I have a feeling you rolled as many times as needed to end up with Comic :P

Feel free to re-roll. And again. And once again if it's still not working while writing 8)

Felt a bit silly to keep re-rolling until you get something good, thought it would be more of a fun thing to take what comes first.

Not that it matters I'm a poop writer anyway :P so i'll make it work.

This theme is exciting and wonderful, so happy to have been one of its parents.  Thanks to all who worked on the practicalities to make it happen. Will save rolling up for special treat later in the day. ;D

I'm sitting in an airport waiting on our second flight, so was happy to get this fixed for you guys (killing time here) :)

if you don't like the boxes, you just click refresh on your browser.  it'll mark the current options gray and fill in the textbox with forum code.

i'll add a "refresh" button.

I'm very happy with my second roll, already have the bones of a story going. Great excuse to write some Urban Fantasy for once!
