This year, my plan is to use my own prompts and my own drawing method (which will have nothing to do with ink.)

Prompts will be generated by rolling 3 random story dice every day. I have 36 unique six-sided dice, so it means loads of possibilities. I'll take a picture and post it first thing in the morning, around 7:00-9:00 UTC+2.

Feel free to share the rolls and use them in any way you want :) Just follow this thread or the hashtag if you find them useful.

@dokoissho Which stories? For now, I’m simply posting my dice rolls so anyone can use them, but besides my own Toki Pona stuff, I don’t know if there’s anything else being produced by these prompts.

@ice that would be a shame. ppl on merveilles should try to do a different one. I'll try one when I get chance.


@ice great colors! just a quick note: sama is the prep in the first example, not tawa, so "mi tawa sama akesi." also, with sitelen sitelen, I belive you only put things inside of things when they are preps, so the following things would go after. other than that, I love your sitelen sitelen.


@lipamanka Glad you like my experiments! That's right, for some reason I keep mixing up the order. Sometimes I still have a hard time with this simple logic, thanks for pointing this out :)

Regarding sitelen sitelen, I think putting things inside "tawa" may come from a stylistic choice from the author of the live renderer, which I often use for reference. I should probably stop using it.


@ice I'm no expert in sitelen sitelen, but it makes the most sense to put tawa's prepositional object inside of it, which in your examples it has none. (unless you talk about the monsi sinpin, in which case I would actually add a lon)


@lipamanka I guess I've been carried away by my usual interest for symmetry and I didn't think about this :)

a, mi ken ala ken pali e toki ni?
ooh, can i give this a try?

@jTemili Sure! Feel free to use this as prompts for Toki Pona or whatever inspire you. I post these dice rolls for everyone :)

mi pana e mun tawa jan lawa

I gave a star to a police officer,
but they need both of their hands to work.

If the participant swimmer is incapable of performing, they don't get anything for participating.

@jTemili ni li pona! ken mute la, mi sitelen lawa e ijo pimeja mute.

toki Inli 

@ice the second part reads like "ilo li ike sina lon ma pi ilo nanpa"
to fix that, i'd make the "li" capsule include both the "ilo" and the "lon ma", the order would be clear then

toki Inli 

@jTemili That's right! Or maybe "sina" and "li ike" should be swapped. Thanks for pointing this out :)

@ice sina kama sona e tawa musi la, o musi, taso o pakala ala e poki mi
