Once upon a time in a land of magic, monsters, myths and mayhem…
The world is run by the chaotic and shape-shifting dragons; elves live in the forests alongside dryads, satyrs and centaurs; trolls lurk under bridges; humans ride unicorns and slay giants; wizards can bend the very fabric of reality (sometimes) and witches turn men to frogs.
This is Enchantland. You begin your story on a murky spring day in the humble and rainy town of Generia, a very generic fantasy town. Are you an elf travelling to the cities for the first time or a human who grew up in the muddy streets? Or perhaps you are a shape changed dragon off to seek your own fortune, or a wizard seeking knowledge and magic?
Enchantland is looking for another player! If you enjoy puns and silliness, read through the scenes we have and come join the fun!
Hi! I’ll be your narrator here in Enchantland, I hope you have fun playing and writing with me! As you can probably glean from the name, this story isn’t trying to take itself too seriously! I do, however, have just a few ground rules that I think will help you decide if this story is right for you!
1) I expect everyone to actually read the narrative and respond to any direct interactions narrator characters have with your character. If your character asks a narrator character a question during a regular move, end your move there so I have a chance to respond.
2) I can’t keep the story moving if you don’t play cards on the obstacles. Winning the challenges is how you get control! Remember, narrator characters in the scene are watching your every move, so an impression can be made on them towards completing the challenge even when interacting with other player characters. Strength and Weakness cards help you reveal character traits; Subplot cards reveal back story and motivations; Goal cards can be further motivation for your character and Assets are items that can help with challenges too, but these aren’t the way to win control of the story!
3) Please don’t write for other people’s characters without expressed permission in the commentaries (so everyone can see its okay) or I will ask for revisions. Don’t write for narrator characters unless you have both won their challenge and you have control of the story! If you don’t have control, you can’t write narrator characters. Leave them for me.
4) Lastly, when you have won control of the story I expect you to take control! Use the parameters set for the outcomes on the obstacle cards and the cards you used to win control, and just go wild! As the narrator I don’t want to have complete control. The more creative you are, the more it challenges me to step up! That being said, if your move makes no sense within the setting and scene, I’ll ask for revisions.
When you make your characters feel free to come up with your own cards! I’ve provided some visual references on the pre-made cards that really, I think, set the tone I’m going for here. I’ll try to check the game twice a day, but lets all be respectful of each others real lives and commitments that might draw us away from Storium. Anyway, that’s all I have to say really! Who’s ready to play?
