This is my prompt card for the January 2017 Dark Fantasy Bingo challenge at the AllBingo site.

I'm reaching out to friends and family to make Dark Fantasy suggestions for any word or phrase on the bingo card that strikes their fancy and I'll write at least 200 words of story based on their suggestion combined with the prompt word they chose. Prompts that have been spoken for will be turned Purple so it will be easy for everyone to keep track of whats already spoken for, and I will have all requested fills done by the end of the Challenge which is 1/31/2017.

200 words may not end up being a complete story in and of itself, but I'm using this exercise as a way to increase my writing capacity, so I'm making sure to set reasonable goals that I'm likely to reach rather than crashing and burning right out the gate!

I don't have any regular story series that I write which are dark fantasy, or any fandoms that I regularly write in, but suggestions can include those if anyone likes.

Lets have fun and make a Bingo!

Slavery: the reality, not the fantasy. When a society has slaves, that creates certain problems. Fantasy writing usually glosses over these. But what does it really do to a culture if sentient unicorns are chained to carts, if sentient dragons are hunted down and caged for use in spell components, if human prisoners of war are dragged off to serve their captors? It does more than just explain how the heck there are half-orcs when humans and orcs hate each other. Slavery, if taken at face value using historic examples, turns the darkness factor to 11.

Yay! I'm just paying it forward. Other folks gave me a hand when I was getting started. I like reading and writing, therefore I encourage people to do that.

My partner Doug was all asquee because one of his favorite bloggers quoted him recently.

This could go under "Spirits" or "Guide". Please go wherever your muse leads you.

In cultures that include totem entities or the equivalent, the totem entities often choose the people whom they imbue with their spirit. Some people are fortunate enough to know early which one they represent; others must go out and find it.

But what about those who are not chosen at all in life? Must they wander the world in death forever, or might they then find their totem and thereby find release from that fate?

Drabbles are great! The word from the Bingo card which jumped out for me was, "forgotten" ... in the kind of ways that are described in Vixy & Tony's song, "Erased".

Happy writing!

This could probably do an entire line [bottom right to top left]

Gothic Regency London, fog-shrouded, gripped in Egypt mania and something is stirring at the mummy unwapping party as the Old Gods & Goddesses rest in uneasy slumber.
