I am a warrior seeking peace and an end to bloodshed. I am on a pilgrimage to the Temple of No Gods in the distant City of Gulls. My pilgrimage has brought me to the Sundered Land, inhabited by multiple enemies, desiring nothing more than to end my quest. My goal is to pass safely through and continue my pilgrimage.
You, my friends online, play the world. Your goal is to see me to my doom or safely on my way, developing the world through description and imagination.
A modification of the game The Sundered Land by Lumpley Games, this game will be run a bit differently to try and fit well within a Storium game. This is hopefully going to be an interesting journey to see what sort of story we can tell with very limited resources.
~ You will be creating deities that are the creators/rulers of these lands. You can be a god, goddess, demon, or perhaps just a king. Either way, these lands obey your word without question.
~ You will be developing your land/deity through your posts. Perhaps you can’t stand the land next to you and want it burned down, perhaps your sister goddess is out of your reach and you only wish to speak with her once more. The land’s deities are aware and can speak to one another, but can only interact through your creatures and the pilgrim.
~ You are NOT allowed to control the pilgrim - you can only describe what is going on around him/her.
~This game is not entirely about winning. This game is an exploration in narrative and what happens when players are building a world, not the narrator.
~Feel free to create new cards as you’d like. These are only beginning suggestions to get you into the idea of the game. They are all pending my approval, however, and I will give feedback if they are not in the idea of the game. If possible, please add artwork so we can have an idea of what you are going for with your card.
~If you want to bestow something upon the pilgrim, you may use your wilds to do so. Assets will also be used like this in the game.
~When submitting your character, please add some sort of avatar. Whether it’s an abstract idea of your deity or an actual picture of an animal/object/human/whatever, as long as it is up there so we know who we are dealing with.
~Also, so this is not entirely one-sided, when you submit your character, please leave in the notes to the narrator something you’d like my character to have. Whether it’s an item, a trait, a flaw, whatever, please leave it in there. You can suggest multiple and I will try and make something feasible based on everyone’s suggestions :)
~The game is marked as NSFW since this game may take us outside of safe work things. It may not even go that far, but putting it there as a precaution.
~This is my first time narrating a game like this, so please, bear with me. It’ll be a new experience for all that I hope we can all sit down and enjoy writing for :)
