Slight explanation beforehand: I read panzer-attack's session reports for a Pendragon chronicle he's running. On the night I started this chain, between this particular report and his own profile, I had inspiration for the first sentence....

Soundtrack for this Chain here:

EPYC 15, Chain H

swmabie started with the opening line of that classic monologue:
In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit.

remus went for the group photo instead of the flashback shot:


Urza47 recognized one of them, at least:
Mr. T and three other men discuss the possibility of starting a wrestling organization.

tickmanfan left out Templeton Peck (maybe he couldn't decide which to draw?):


Emile has experience with other sorts of pros, apparently:
With Dirk Benedict sulking in his trailer and holding up production - AGAIN - the rest of the A-Team cast dream of the more stable and lucrative world of professional team fence-building in the glamorous Woodworkers and Wirestringers Association.

puckhead does a very literal translation of that:


Reish Galuta introduces the next two elements to take off:
While Faceman was serving his 8th day in the makeshift trailer prision for the crime of cutting off the arms from the rest of the team, Hannibal considered what the A-Team's chances of winning the protest-sign-relay-hurdle race would have been had they still had arms.

yohanleafheart hits the curve-ball for a solid homer:


AnakinOU tells it like it is:
Locked away in his mobile-home jail, with a smiley face in a neighboring cell, Hannibal Lector could only fantasize about stopping the A-Team.

SybotCB apparently is too young to have seen '80s TV shows, but at least he's watched good movies:


& baditude brings us back to where we started, with someone on the inside dreaming of getting out:
In the prison train, Mr. Happy could only smile while Mr. A obsessed over ways to stop the pick and roll.

Much thanks to Jim Patching for the muse, and everyone who participated for the great laughs along the way.

These drawings are great... I only wish there was a way to thumb the interpretive sentences individually.

I do too. I got to thinking about it, and decided to split the "session report" earnings (those that I got from the Geekmodders) between everyone; seems like the fairest thing to do. I went back and did the same for 14G as well. It wasn't much - 2.31 for this one, 2.3 for the other, for an average of .21 a person - but they deserve it (more than I do, at any rate).

I love how it went from "The A-Team" (implied) to just "Mr. T", then back to "The A-Team".

Did anyone else notice that both of Faceman's cells have exactly 8 tally marks?

It was a short-lived meme. puckhead put it on there (as Emile was no more descriptive than "again"), Reish picked up on it, and Sol squeezed it in there. After that it was lost to the wayside.

I personally loved how the wrestling ring became a fence, then picket signs, and then simply "stopping" first the A-Team and then the Pick & Roll.

Oh, that would have been fine. Maybe even better...

I like to use lines that can be done multiple ways. I'd much rather a line get hijacked early and go off to parts unknown (a la 14-J) than stay in the same neighborhood (a la 10-B). Not that there's anything wrong with those other sorts of chains; the Cookie Monster/Potato Head chain was classic, as was Hottubbing Snowman (the aforementioned 10-B). But I get more enjoyment derailing something, or having it derailed by someone else, than anything else. I call that the "epyc moment." In this chain, there were several small "epyc moments" - fence-building? Hannibal Lector? - but nothing huge. But, again, nothing wrong with that. It apparently worked for this chain.

Why not make a new post for each sentence/picture? Same thing to follow as stringing them after each other in the same post, really...

Because the one doing the posting isn't the one who wrote the sentence. Basically, you'd be giving me thumbs because you liked so&so's sentence.

If there were some way to transfer thumbs, sure; and I could always give them whatever GG their sentence "earned." (I already gave them a share of the session report GG.)
