Idea Garage Sale: Opening Line

We had two out-of-town members of the gaming group over last night so we could get an early start on gaming, so Idea Garage Sale today is simple before I dash out the door.

Here's a first line that popped into my head randomly, as happens once in awhile. Usually nothing happens, but sometimes you write "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit" and the question of what a hobbit is and why it lives in a hole in the ground comes back to eat at you and history is made. So here's one of mine.

"The worst of it was, Megrim wasn't even human."

The imagery I have about this line, oddly enough, involves Conestoga wagons and sibling rivalry. But run with it if you want.
