Just a quick note from me to tell you all how awesome you are and that this crazy StoryCube journey would not be as much fun without all of you.

We started from humble beginnings and it just blows me away to see how far we have come with our simple concept. What is more rewarding for me and the entire team is the incredible fans and the uploaded videos, songs, raps, illustrations and solo performance epic saga’s that you guys produce.

Each and every one of you are an inspiration to me and our team and we cannot wait to see where this Storytelling ride takes us next...

Ross is a talented comic illustrator who uses Rory's Story Cubes ® as inspiration in creating his artworks. Using Rory's Story Cubes ® : Batman Ross created these intricate, beautifully detailed scenes.

The Guys at Yogscast have dedicated a few of their videos to Rory’s Story Cubes ® and they are hilarious. We love the way they develop their stories, having them lead by particular movie genres and themes. Their stories are a classic example of how random stories can be created using StoryCubes.

Rachel and Heinze decided to do something completely different for their creative process. It’s not based on something ‘funny’ we thought up in advance, but it’s based on a dice roll with RORY’s Storycubes ® ! Rachel said “I have to say: it was a lot of fun not knowing what the comic would be about in advance. To be precise, it was so much fun that I’ll make another one. That might also have to do with the fact that this comic doesn’t really have an ending, yet.”

I n the autumn of 1979, Doctor Who was approaching the end of an era. Tom Baker, who had become, by this time, the definitive Doctor, was thinking of moving on after five years in the role. Behind the scenes, things had already changed.

Producer Graham Williams, disliked by many fans because of his introduction of zany humour and robot dog K9 to the show, was working on his last story, as was script editor Douglas Adams who, off the back of his radio show The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, was about to become very famous.

Britain was also changing. Margaret Thatcher had been elected Prime Minister in May and the country looked towards free enterprise and a fight against unionisation. Oddly,...

LATE one night, so the story goes, a great doctor, who lived near Lough Neagh, was awoke by the sound of a carriage driving up to his door, followed by a loud ring. Hastily throwing on his clothes, the doctor ran down, when he saw a little sprite of a page standing at the carriage door, and a grand gentleman inside.

“Oh, doctor, make haste and come with me,” exclaimed the gentleman. “Lose no time, for a great lady has been taken ill, and she will have no one to attend her but you. So come along with me at once in the carriage!”

On this the doctor ran up again to finish his dressing, and to put up all that might be wanted, and was down again in a moment.

“Now quick,” said the gentleman, “you are an excellent good fellow. Sit down here beside me, and do not be alarmed at anything you may see.”

So on they drove like mad and when they came to the ferry, the doctor thought they would wake up the ferryman and take the boat. But no! In they plunged, carriage and horses, and all, and were at the other side in no time without a drop of water touching them.

Now the doctor began to suspect the company he was in, but he held his peace, and they went on up Shane’s Hill till they stopped at a long, low, black house, which they entered, and passed along a narrow dark passage, groping their way, till, all at once, a bright light lit up the walls, and with some attendants having opened a door, the doctor found himself in a gorgeous chamber all hung with silk and gold. And on a silken couch lay a beautiful lady, who exclaimed with the most friendly greeting:

And on a silken couch lay a beautiful lady, who exclaimed with the most friendly greeting:

Once upon a time, many years ago when our grandfathers were little children—there was a doctor; and his name was Dolittle—John Dolittle, M.D. "M.D." means that he was a proper doctor and knew a whole lot.

He lived in a little town called, Puddleby–on–the–Marsh. All the folks, young and old, knew him well by sight. And whenever he walked down the street in his high hat everyone would say, "There goes the Doctor!—He's a clever man." And the dogs and the children would all run up and follow behind him; and even the crows that lived in the church–tower would caw and nod their heads.

The house he lived in, on the edge of the town, was quite small; but his garden was very large and had a wide lawn and stone seats and weeping–willows hanging over. His sister, Sarah Dolittle, was housekeeper for him; but the Doctor looked after the garden himself.

He was very fond of animals and kept many kinds of pets. Besides the gold–fish in the pond at the bottom of his garden, he had rabbits in the pantry, white mice in his piano, a squirrel in the linen closet and a hedgehog in the cellar. He had a cow with a calf too, and an old lame horse–twenty–five years of age—and chickens, and pigeons, and two lambs, and many other animals. But his favorite pets were Dab–Dab the duck, Jip the dog, Gub–Gub the baby pig, Polynesia the parrot, and the owl Too–Too.

His sister used to grumble about all these animals and said they made the house untidy. And one day when an old lady with rheumatism came to see the Doctor, she sat on the hedgehog who was sleeping on the sofa and never came to see him any more, but drove every Saturday all the way to Oxenthorpe, another town ten miles off, to see a different doctor.

"John, how can you expect sick people to come and see you when you keep all these animals in the house? It's a fine doctor would have his parlor full of hedgehogs and mice! That's the fourth personage these animals have driven away. Squire Jenkins and the Parson say they wouldn't come near your house again—no matter how sick they are. We are getting poorer every day. If you go on like this, none of the best people will have you for a doctor."
