Game Night Competition

serpentstar is holding a competition on his LJ for a copy of Jonny Nexus' Game Night fantasy novel (I've read and it's good fun).

Here's what Ian says:
"To win a copy of Game Night, write a drabble, below, in the comments section. The theme is roleplaying game comedy. A drabble is a short story that's precisely 100 words long. The writer of the best drabble, as judged by Jonny Nexus himself, will win a signed copy of Game Night. You have one week from today (so, till midnight GMT on 5 Feb 2010) to write your drabble & submit it to the comments on this entry."

Go here to enter the competition.

I've already got a copy of the book but I wrote something anyway, although it's slightly tangential to the requirements of the competition:

King Conan looked down from the Eagle Throne, his brow furrowed.
‘What is it this time?’ he asked his fawning vizier.
‘A delegation of Zingarans, eager to parlay.’
‘Send them in,’ said the King, waving his hand dismissively - a hand that had strangled snake-gods, climbed the Mountains of Forever, fondled dusky maidens on the altars of evil temples, now reduced to waving at courtiers. The Zingarans approached. On a signal from their leader, two women threw themselves to the ground and set off a terrible wailing.
‘Why?’ thought Conan, ‘why did I ever mention the lamentations of the women?’
