"Those who fail to reach this lofty summit forfeit their souls to the tournament supervisor, the Master of Souls, unless they can beat him personally in a match."

That was actually the title of one of my more recent spams. It seemed poetic in some way and partly like a MMORPG instruction sheet. It reminded me of this MS program about 10 years ago called, I think, "Creative Writer?" It was mainly for children, but had a useful tool called "Story Starters." It was a random phrase generator to help get a story started. Like you'd click the button, and some phrases would spin around, and you'd get something like:

[Don't crush] [that dwarf] [hand me] [the pliers!] [said the angry accountant.]
