Daring princesses, conflicted warriors, lonely conjurers, and greedy dragons await you in this tome. These fantasy prompts range from lighthearted to grimdark.

Inside you'll find prompts like...

• It was an ordinary board meeting until someone drew a pentagram in the center of the table.

• His blow caught me off balance, and the next thing I knew I was on my back with his sword at my throat.

"Any last words?" he asked.

• Every night, you hear the call of a train whistle in the distance. The only thing is… you don't live near train tracks.

• A mermaid's kiss enables a human soldier to breathe underwater.

Designed as a journal edition. That means each prompt has been given its own page, leaving you room to jot notes and brainstorm below.
