The Magic of #Twitterville

The creative writing exercise that is #Twitterville continues over Twitterville.org.

This week’s challenge is magic. In a fantasy city in a fantasy world, magic is going to play a significant role in the life of the inhabitants but can you create plot hooks and background material on the subject in just a 140 characters?

The heads of most players I know are full of ideas for cool magic items, creatures or abandon wizard’s towers where the owner has mysteriously vanished. Distilling these ideas down into Twitter sized messages is difficult but is a great way to keep the creative brain working. I find most of my ideas are improved by the process because it forces you to focus on what is important.
