Why is this topic so difficult lol! I feel that some of my stories from the previous Rapid Fire Challenge would better fit in the hunted section. I'm working on something though. Hopefully I'll have it posted at the end of my shift today.

I'm having trouble as well - I think the previous RFC Prompt drained all my "hunter" stuff.

 

Just can't get any ideas!

Not super happy with this. I think I could do a lot better but I'm just throwing thoughts on paper right now. Anyway, enjoy!

I think Madness is well-written, Aothaine. The
Spoiler

POV is sufficiently descriptive, believable, and able to draw in readers like myself.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I'm trying to think of ways to write about something/someone being hunted without the typical running away troupe. I have another idea I'm working on right now just need to figure out how to put it to paper. But I really like this idea so I am welcoming the challenge.

 

Thank you for the kind words btwbiggrin.png

I'm kind of confused by the statement. Did the story not qualify as hunted? Maybe I didn't write it correctly. I was trying to...

Excellent work, Brother Lunkhead. Does it depict

or is it meant to be open to interpretation?
