In honor of the forum that I got this game from coming back up, I propose bringing back the game: The Thingy.

The rules are very simple: I have the thingy. You want the thingy. You must post what whatever it is you do to get the thingy. This can be as elaborate or as simple as you want. You cannot kill the thingy. If you name the thingy, you die, and anyone can pick the thingy up. Ready? GO!

I stroll past Zenoc, slipping my hand into his pocket and stealing the Thingy. Whistling nonchalantly, I amble away to a a nondescript place.

I disguise myself as Lostthyme, then stroll past the real Lostthyme and reenact her theft. I then amble away to a similarly nondescript place.

I am not fooled by the male in a wig, so I follow him and steal the Thingy while he is preoccupied with his disguise. I then dig a hole a rectangular hole in the ground, put the Thingy in a casket at the bottom, then fill the hole and put a tombstone at the head of my makeshift grave.

I inscribe the following phrase on the tombstone:

Here lies Frankfurt III
Died of the Curse of the Egyptian Gods
Whosoever exhumes this grave shall be cursed
And followed for the rest of his days
By the mummy of Tutankhamen

I walked far, climbed high and saw the world from high above.
but I could not forget the Thingy
I slept long and deep till seasons passed
and I dreamt of the Thingy


I walk in a forest. I used to know which forest it was. I used to know where the forest was. Now I cannot even remember on which continent I am. I woke up here, I think, but did I go to sleep here ? I do not know. I only know I am searching. Always searching. I know what I am searching. The Thingy. And it is close and I am coming closer.

I come by a grave, a fake grave. I am not scared by the description. Why should I ? A mummy is usually pretty bad at walking and Tutankhamen's must be falling apart by now. It is not going to follow me far. So I start digging. With my hands. Halfway the thought that it would be easier digging with that shovel the last person left behind reaches me and I dig on with a shovel. When I find the Thingy in the casket, I know there is no time to spare.

I put the Thingy in the Place That Is No Place. And I start finding my way out from the Place That Is No Place. It is a snaring, binding,trapping place.

Resting from trying to escape the Place That Is No Place, I check the internet( yeah there is internet even here) and laugh when I read Aaron's post. Once I was a noob like him. Once I couldn't recognize the real Thingy either. The Thingy is still here, behind me. When I turn around I see it, I sense it. The shiny Thingy not marked by its experiences....It is... more perfect then perfection.

The Place That Is Not is not the same place as The Place That Is No Place. Did he really think joining the Thingy hunt would be so easy? With thousands and thousands of fakes all over the place?

Only the Thingy hears my insane laughter.

Realizing that the thingy is in wrong hands once more, I fetch my huge backpack, a miner's lamp, a baseball bat and big mountain shoes in order to look for it.
When I finally find Luna's lair, I invite her for tea and proceed to empty my backpack on her rug, pretending the tea cups are somewhere in there. If they were, they're surely broken now, but Luna's scream probably has a lot more to do with the fact I just cluttered her No Place. As she looks down at the mess, I whack her head with my dad's lucky baseball bat. I then put all of the thingies in my backpack since I am not too sure which one is the Thingy yet. I then run out as quietly as possible.

I shine up my fake thingy and show it to allatwan. She believes the fake, so she starts searching to see if in fact it fell out of her backpack.
I then drop the fake thingy on her toe and use the real thingy (which i stole from the backpack) to turn her into Cho.

As Cho, I run around and look for other Rivenese guards to help me go to AaronAKAAtrus' hiding place to look the Thingy. However, it seems he has not hidden it yet...
Confused, I wonder what just happened.

That's what you think Aaron! You see, I preformed an inception on Zenoc to locate the Thingy, then planted the idea that he had the Thingy with him. As you may have guessed, I have the real Thingy. As for the imitation you have there, well... Enjoy the fire-works, I suppose.

Hey, no messing around with my dreams! They're weird enough without having you sticking a platypus where the gas pedal should be in the car.

Right, Nyrunia has the Thingy. Where's the one place that she would never expect me to look?

Of course, she's always putting things in random places...
...This could take a while.

I somehow locate the Thingy by following Zenoc. I see it stashed away, and I snatch it up before he notices.

I put the Thingy inside a bag.
I put the bag inside a box.
I put the box inside a bigger box.
I put the bigger box inside a safe.
I put the safe inside a crate.
I put the crate in the trunk of a car.
I put the car on a boat.
I put the boat at the bottom of the ocean.

My plan is perfect.

With a metal detector, I search for the boat.
With giant pliars, I bring out the car.
By telling it to pull the emergency opening lever, I get the crate out of the trunk of the car.
I break the crate to get the safe.
I use my disguise to fool the safe.
I pull the box out of the box.
I bring the bag out of the box.
I dump the Thingy out of the bag.

I take the Thingy and tie it to a dog
Which is chased by a brave cat
Which is eaten by a giant rat
That lives in the house that Jack built.

EPIC!

I hunt down the dog, take the thingy, and eat it.
Beat that!

I cut open your stomach, and feed the Thingy to a whark.
I believe the correct term is "What Now?!"

Oooh, a challenge! :D

I replace the icing on Allatwan's celebratory cake with a laxative enhanced substitute, and lock all the toilet doors except for the one I have diverted into a portable sanitation unit. Industrial strength contact adhesive ensures that once the cubicle is entered the door isn't opening again in a hurry, and after making good my escape I take advice from the Evil Overlord list and secure the now aseptic Thingy in my safe deposit box ;)

Edit: and Nyrunia posted whilst I was writing that. So...

I introduce the whark to a pack of *VERY* hungry Goliath Tigerfish (a bigger cousin of the piranha) and let nature take it's course. Thankfully the fish don't have a taste for thingys, and leave it behind for me to pocket as they depart back to the Congo, and I still take the advice of the Evil Overlord list and secure the now aseptic Thingy in my safe deposit box ;)

(note: this is a Goliath Tigerfish!)

I am a corrupt banker. I use my key to the box to take the thingy.
I place the thingy in... well if i told you you'd be able to find it. ;) I leave the finding to you. :braces:

I steal the Thingy from your back pocket, and fly my Tardis to Mars.

Greetings, human


I am pleased by this bountiful reward that has been bequeathed to us. I take over the mind of Gloa to write this notation, telling you how I take the Thingy from your pitiful devices and move it to the vault of things your race cannot comprehend. Face the seven trials of endurance, and the nine trials of beauty, and the eighteen trials of arithmetic... and you may see the vault. You will not be able to go in, for it is incomprehensible and would overwhelm your feeble minds. The trials are just there because I am a jerk.


Oh yeah, and I did mention we can mind control, right?

Oh boy. I think this sounds like a job for Mystress, actually. I haven't seen her in a while, though, so instead I convince the Russian space program of the very real Martian threat, and then suggest that they just blow the planet up. Convinced of the need to protect their country from little green men, they happily do so. Because of the Thingy's unique atomic structure (it is made of Stuff, after all), it's easy to find it among the debris, and bring it back to Earth.

Well, since it is located on "Earth" and I live also on "Earth", I simply find it at my feet and hide it in my cheeks like a squirrel. It is small after all.

After AaronAKAAtrus accidentally swallows the Thingy and passes it in the grass like the squirrel he is, I accidentally step on the Thingy (because as with my current URU journeys, I rarely pay attention to things right in front of me) and it squishes up between my toes.. Ewww!

I'm ~so~ NOT touching the Thingy now... Can someone come and pick this Thingy out of my toes..? Please?

I come and carefully pick the Thingy up between two nasty cheap Boye knitting needles. I wash it with the garden hose and then again with soap, throw the needles away, and tuck the Thingy into my knitting bag.
