To prepare for writing a movie script, today our group wrote stories using story dice: wooden dice with different symbols or characters on them (for example: witch, troll, thunderstorm, castle, princess, hourglass, star, …).

The director walked away and after one hour they got what they wanted. In the last night, a very stormy night, they made the magic hourglass to turn the time back. But before they finished it, the director came and took them to the death room. After they got executed the prison burned down, so that nobody ever can finish the magic hourglass.
