You plan on enjoying a relaxing Caribbean vacation and are indulging in some cheesy, pirate-themed boat tour when a sudden storm knocks your boat off-course. You wake up on the beach of a strange island, awash in the light of stars that look nothing like the ones you expected to find.
Some ground rules before you start (courtesy of LovelessArachne):
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 That being said, we want to be as creative as possible. If you are playing a card on a challenge, please describe how your actions contribute to the resolution of the challenge – posts in this situation should be no less than 100 words.
4 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.
5 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 characters, feel free to come up with your own cards and ideas. My only other request is that you treat your fellow players with respect and understand that real life comes first. If there is a reason why you may be afk for a while, be sure to mention it in the comments to prevent your being harassed by other players.
