The Banthram Edit
1 page story,
a Goodly Knight
a good, if gulible Knight meets a huge, magical beast that asks him to 'stay his hand' and proceeds to Monstersplain it's curse.
kisses are involved
the Knight is devoured.
a flashback reveals the true nature (and very specific wording) of the Banthram's Curse.
this one is one of the reasons I intend to run a tabletop RPG set in the 'Oglafverse'
