(Begins 1 March)
They lived in plenty and not for want,among the cars they plied their wiles.Safe and fed, rarely away they jaunt,they have never experienced the wilds.
But came the day when the slave didn’t come,the beginning of things going wrong.What’s that sinking feeling in their tum,when all they knew stopped coming along?
The community cats at the car park colony lived a charmed life. The feeding station never ran out of food or water. They inspected parked cars, solicit scritches, and spent their days napping in the sunshine.
Without warning, it ended. The cars stopped coming. Their food slave did not return to replenish their feeding station. They were running out of food.
The bravest among them venture out of the car park, and into the small commercial centre, but there were no humans to be found. For the first time, the cats must leave their colony and enter the urban jungle if they expect to survive.
There’s always a catch, I’m sure you’ll see,This narrator’s game is for those who dare.Cat’s out of the bag, your tale will betold in pantun, pantoum or syair.
It is a tale as old as time.
You join a game. The premise sounds interesting. Perhaps a friend or a secret crush is in it. Perhaps none of your usual co-writers are in it. Maybe the narrator was insistent that they will only start once they have x number of players, and you were feeling charitable at that moment.
It is a tune as old as song.
The game is off to a roaring start. Everyone is exploring their new characters, establishing their character’s role in the story, figuring out the other characters (and other players).
And then - record scratch - it is over.
The next person to move, does not move (They move in all their other games, though). Someone promises a move “soon” but “soon” is an abstract concept. Someone logs off and never comes back. Nobody responds to “gentle reminders”. Someone gently reminds you that people have lives too and we all should be kinder to each other. Whatever hopes and dreams you had when starting the game runs dry. A free user retires for a new and hopefully more active game, and you start eyeing the ‘retire’ button yourself. The narrator starts two new games.
The story never ends. In fact, it barely even begun.
Welcome to RESET, where we turn Storium’s biggest problem into a concept. ;)
