My first game, The Scenario.
"The Scenario is a roleplaying game focusing on normal individuals, their interactions and the present, however absurd that present becomes."
2700 words approx. I would like to use big words like 'Kafkaesque' and 'Absurdist' to describe play, but I'll leave that to your judgment.
However, I'm filled with childish enthusiasm for it so you'll forgive me if I post it here for your discerning pleasure. Its faults and obvious plagiarisms are many and, if you're not too busy, I encourage you to tell me about them. Most importantly, I think you'll enjoy reading it.
Morning all! I wrote my second game last night.
The Wanderer.Black-on-White Googledocs version.
“A long time ago there was a wilderland both terrible and lonely where the beasts and devils of this world lay in wait to devour the flesh of men and mock their folly.”
“The Wanderer” is a simple roleplaying game invoking the conventions of the Sword & Sorcery fantasy subgenre but adding a few modern twists. The players jointly narrate the adventures of a single protagonist as he travels through a land of both heartbreaking beauty and deadly adversity. “The Wilderland is a Place of Devils. Built on the bones of countless slaves, the palace-fortresses of the devils lie isolated about this place, trapped by some forgotten misfortune. Decadent and wicked, the devils live in prideful, smoke-blind luxury as self-proclaimed sultans and sorcerer-kings. Armies of spirits and orb-like watchers patrol their nations, forever warring and spying on one another and those who dare trespass.“
I get no points for originality, but if you have the time to read (2700 words) and appreciate storytelling mechanics and the Sword & Sorcery genre I'd kill for some feedback.
