This is not an article for the trope (already covered in RoundRobin); this page is for actually ''writing'' one. An exquisite corpse is a work in which multiple authors take turns contributing to it (a more comprehensive definition of "exquisite corpse" is provided [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exquisite_corpse on the Other Wiki]]). Here are the rules:

# We will start with [[Corpse/SmallWorldsChapterOne Chapter One]]. Each chapter has to be written by a different troper than the one before. No troper may add multiple chapters in a row.
# If a troper does not like the way the story is going, he can create an [[AlternateHistory Alternate Branch]] of the story, but it has to follow all rules which apply to the exquisite corpse.
# Illustrations can be provided by those who can draw.
# Some semblance of continuity, please.
# No complaining.
# A chapter can only be tweaked by the person that wrote it, and only until the next chapter is created.
# New rules [[{{Calvinball}} can be added at any time.]]
