First, all of the entries were brilliant premises! The choice here was not easy. But ultimately, I chose the one that would be the most amusing to write for anyone that wants to join in the fun. So...
Congratulations to @btcnoodle, the author of the winning logline in Round 1!
This is their logline (and the prompt for Round 2):
Imagining this taking place in present day tickles me to no end, since it's generally common knowledge that the gold rush ended well over a century ago. Meaning something comical must have happened to cause him to miss that vital detail. Now, I'm not sure if @btcnoodle intended it that way, but that was my first reaction when I read it and I found it pleasantly amusing, so I hope they don't mind. ^_^;
Now, on to Round 2!
For which @btcnoodle gets to guest-judge if they wish.
Based on the promt above, write an opening to this story that ends with a cliffhanger and two choices for how the character should proceed.
The limit is 100 words, including the choices.
Example from previous post:
He awakes to the sound of a loud crash outside his bedroom door. And errie silence follows. He decides to:
Option One: Investigate.
Option Two: Hide.
Again, you'll want to create something more compelling than that. But still, mind the word limit. Note, the words "Option One" and "Option Two" won't be counted, but the contents of those options will.
How To Enter:
Write your entry (100 words max) as a direct reply to this post.

The logline has been added to the SteemIF Twinery-powered page, and it now awaits the first entry in the story. ^_^
