Plot Challenge:  Embarrassing Position

This can include being stuck up in a tree, wedged in a too-tight space, and similar embarrassing ways someone can get stuck. The character should require rescuing.

Bonus points: It’s so embarrassing that the antagonist rescues him or her.

Character Challenge:  Spoiling for a Fight

 One of your characters is in a really bad mood and is spoiling for a fight. Get them into a situation where they bite off more than they can chew in terms of verbal debate and arguments.

Bonus: Pick the quietest character to be the victor of the argument.

Conflict Challenge:  In Fighting

Your characters have things to do, but they are too busy bickering amongst themselves to get it done. Pursue how their delaying to bicker impacts their ultimate goals.

Fun & Games: For Pony!

One of your characters utters a silly war cry. Like, “For pony!” This war cry should evoke startled confusion from any who hear him or her.
