You spread your wings or fired your engines, and rode the gale from suns. Some of you came from worlds you had built, and others from ones they had conquered. Others still came from nothing, where they were nobody. Past lives don’t matter now; none of you know each other. All you have in common is that you seek the Name.
Here in this system sunflies whirr between worlds in unusual numbers, blind and curious. You were right, you thought: this is the place. You bent your flight downwards, to the fourth planet from the sun, and you fell.
Now you stand on this place, this Earth, and with an anticipatory shiver you begin your search.
You are creatures from distant planets. Please give details about the nature of your species in your bio, if they are relevant, but be aware that this game is intentionally low-tech; we are aiming for mysticism rather than science fiction. You seek a Name, though your opinions differ about whose Name it is. All you can agree on is that to find it will be to gain enormous power. To do so, and to survive here, you will have to work together - but in the end only one of you can claim the Name. Gain strength. Forge alliances. Deceive one another. Above all, be wary. You are not the only ones who have sensed the Name’s presence here. Nor are the inhabitants of Earth as clueless as they may appear.
Your name should be the title of your Nature card. You once had a real name, of course, but you have renounced it: nothing already named can take the Name for itself.
I’m looking for 4-7 writers whose style I think will fit well here, not for the first to apply. Last time I tried to start this game, several people dropped out before I sorted through applications, and I had to cancel. With that in mind, assuming there’s interest, I’ll be accepting/declining people on Thursday 29th January at the latest.
