So I totally goofed and forgot to post the OF last week, but not this week! Tomorrow, a new era begins! As you might be aware, for the past year or so, I’ve been involved with a tabletop RPG campaign that I’ve been converting into a story and posting here on TAY. That campaign ended in December and, while I’m still working on pushing out the final chapters, I’ll be GMing a new campaign starting tomorrow. Sadly, I won’t be documenting that one on TAY, but it’ll be fun nonetheless. There’s just a certain excitement about the start of a new adventure!

Today’s topic is in a similar vein! What is your favorite opening and/or first level in a video game? Your favorite opening scene in a movie? Your favorite first chapter in a book? Your favorite first episode of a show or anime? Your favorite opening track on an album? Share below or Talk Amongst Yourselves about whatever you like!

Don’t forget to stop by our Discord Chatroom if you want to have more a more rapid-fire conversation with fellow TAYers! And, if you want to talk to an Admin or Author about something and don’t know how to reach them, you can look them up in our DirecTAYry.
