For those of you who have not partaken of the joy that is Sandman:
This is "the oldest game" practiced by gods, mortals and Endless since the beginning of time; what you do is you choose a form, and two adjectives to go with it "I am bull, snake-crushing, heavy-footed", and your opponent then chooses a form to defeat that "I am anthrax, butcher-bacterium, warm-life slaying"

Rules are:

1. No undue escalation (e.g., "I'm a spider" - "Hah! I'm a nuclear holocaust")
2. No undue hesitation (answer as quickly as you can)
3. No lack of imagination
4. Quote the form you're answering to. Do not fight a beaten form!

Give it a try!



I'll start it off:

I am the Ocean, vast, engulfing.
