Chain Writing Game v3: Episode 7

Kerrie Ann Salsac’s Chain Writing Game continues in week 3. The game where each participant adds a piece of the story. This week, Jenna awakes in the forest, naked and covered in blood. What happened? What will happen? It’s all up to us who play the game to imagine what comes next!

Episode 7

Jenna felt warmer in Jamie’s cave before a fire and wearing deer skins. “What is this?”

“An alternate dimension. An Arena. We’re like gladiators who live or die for some sicko’s amusement.”

“Ooookay.” She showed her tatoo. “I mean this.”

“Nanotech signalling circuit. Live long enough, it’s how they pull you out. This is my third trip.”

She stared numbly. “That T-Rex was real.”

“The Dromaeosaurs are worse.”


“Killer chickens from Hell.”

“God. Can it get worse?”

“Yeah, if the Wolfen find you.”

“You mean werewolves?”

“I mean the reverse. Huge wolves shapeshifting into humans.

Jenna started to cry.

For those unfamiliar with Dromaeosaurs (Killer Chickens from Hell), here’s a little video including a Hadrosaur, their natural prey.


About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    So glad I checked before uploading mine. I’ll wait a bit now. At least we have a reason why they are there now. And you didn’t kill anyone 😉

    Great addon

    Wow what an explanation!
    What other weird and crazy monsters wonder this dimension? This is going to be so much fun to create 😀


  3. JackieP says:

    Oh man. I’m even scared now! haha! I will have to think on things for a bit before adding my two cents.


    • EagleAye says:

      Hehe. This is definitely a scary place. I think somebody needs to add in a love interest for Jenna. I have an idea for that, but I’ll wait and see if somebody else wants to add one.


  4. J. Milburn says:

    YES! ‘Alternate dimension reality show death match’ is a phrase not used nearly enough 😀 Amazing addition!


    • EagleAye says:

      Yep. A scifi “Most Dangerous Game” is something that could get really interesting. Noe the trick is, how to survive it? There’s plenty of stuff that want to eat them. Thanks much, J!


  5. Ah! A game unfolds. Reminds me of The Manhattan Hunt Club by John Saul. Forgotten immates trapped in the tunnels under Manhattan for the hunting pleasure of the rich and powerful.


    • EagleAye says:

      Oh interesting. I was thinking of “The Most Dangerous Game.” by Richard Connell. That story sounds like an interesting variation of mine. This one will be better than either, though. We’ve got a T-Rex on the loose!


  6. Joe Owens says:

    Maybe they can hitch a saddle on the beast. It looks as if it is unable to turn enough to threaten someone behind its head. Three times through, either this guy is slick or she is a glutton for punishment.


  7. EagleAye says:

    Trick is…getting the saddle on. I’ve already got a lot of this mapped out in my head. I imagine that, like the Gladiators of old, survivors are whisked away to an inescapable prison. Perhaps an artificial habitat in orbit around a planet. There, they are treated like royalty and pampered with the finest food, drink, and earthly delights. They might receive advanced survival training too. But Jenna has something special about her that even she doesn’t know about. It will help her escape where all others failed.

    Of course, all this could change in a blink. This is a community writing experience. Someone could add something that would change all that. It’s part of the fun of CWG. The story changes in unexpected ways constantly.


  8. Just came back to watch the video you imbedded. Jenna is toast against those Dromaeosaurs. Funny that you mention the Hadrosaur. The Hadrosaurus is a town near where I live’s claim to fame. The first was discovered in Haddonfield NJ and is now a major exhibit at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia.
