Random dice roll : 5 : The twist is that one of the main characters is actually a robot/golem/created being.

Inspiration

I get inspiration from a lot of places and there are probably many sources of faded inspiration that I'm not consciously aware of but definitely have play in what comes out. But, I did want to list some of the things that inspired me to develop the initial idea that then just blossomed after I started writing. First, I support a lot of itch.io bundles for various causes and have way more games from there that I can ever hope to possible play. I tend to read all the games premises and recently I bought the Reproductive Rights Bundle which coincided with the start of this Story contest. After rolling random, I was perusing all these games I downloaded and two games wiggled into my thoughts. One was Singles&Returns - Talking to Strangers on a Bus. I took some bus rules and the idea of a bus trip from here. The other was The Creation , a solo game about being an abandoned Golem and the village is coming to destroy. I've played neither. Lastly, I took fanstastic or maybe weird locations from games like Troika, Electric Bastionlands, Beyond Glittering Sands, Van Wizard, etc, along with some Fae inspiration from past game-play.

Anyway, I hope you all have fun reading it.

A story I wrote already, then edited in half. I hope you like it. Feel free to wiki the monk character - the historical note at the beginning is true. Apologies for the lack of inclusion of all the themes.
