There is no such thing as a free wish.

When you make a wish, you always get burned. Or cheated. Or it just does not work out the way you expect.

But what happens to those who get cheated out of their wishes?

Some just go away. But some brood. Some get bitter.

And some get organised.

There is a secret society, made up of those who have lost out, through unwise wish-making or dishonest delivery.

They share their experiences, try to learn and grow from them.

One day they will make their chance come round again. They will be granted 3 wishes. And they will be ready. They will have water-tight wishes, that get them what they want, and get even for the past…

In the middle of October 2019, a small cruise ship mysteriously parked itself next to a remote island in the starlit wildness of the Indian Ocean. Surprised to have reached their destination so soon, a handful of passengers got off the boat, entranced by the emerald greenery of the island. Only, when they turned around, all traces of the boat had vanished.

Why them? Why are they there? How will they survive?

Welcome to a new Millennium the year is 2000…
2005, 2010, 2015, 2020, 2025, 2030, 2035, 2040.

I apologise for the inclusion of 2020, I had this planned pre pandemic, but at least when we reach that point there will be a lot to write about (that one is probably the zoom meetup scene).

In a crumbling holiday town on the coast of England the family gather to celebrate the opening of a new millennia.

The Raynors have been/will be through some difficult times over the past/next 40 years. A changing family, a changing country.

With each scene moving another 5 years into their lives from the past into the future, where everything changes, even family.

Colton Herbert Fizz was famous for his ground-breaking confectionary.

His sweet factory was legendary. But he wanted to share the magic!

He opened a competition which would enable lucky contestants to visit his factory, try out his latest creations, and make their own design a reality. All they had to do is submit an idea for a new kind of sweet - and hope he judged it one of the winners!


If you think you can guess what this story is based on - yep, you are probably on about the right track. You have the general idea.

The deep-space frigate Mirai Kage and her crew embark on a new mission of piracy and moral ambiguity in this dramatic adventure story.

Looking for 2-3 players to join the crew and help the ship gain profit by any means available.

Technology is akin to the movie IcePirates: you don’t want to fire a gun in a sealed environment, since catastrophic decompression just ruins EVERYONE’s day.

Headlines

This game focuses on diplomatic problem solving and advancement, set in a medieval fantasy world. It is set for three scenes but there may be sequels. This is to focus on the initial game being completed without losing momentum, but with the option for enthusiasts to continue.
It would suit people who enjoy writing about conflict resolution, diplomacy and (small p) politics. In other words, running a government and steering a people, alongside personal character development.

The game will not start until there is a core of players who have a track record or known to the narrator so we have the best chance of the game being seen through to the end.

About the story:

Your character is part of a diplomatic team with an unusual and engaging brief.

Your home land (Vitriol) has signed a treaty with an overseas country (Laskia), making a port town and some surrounding land in that continent sovereign territory of Vitriol. This is to enable efficient trade between the two peoples.
This brings a whole portfolio of opportunities and problems - not lease managing conflicting interests and possible resentment from locals. There is of course plenty of politics, as individuals and groups try to pursue their own interests.

Game world:

The game world is medieval / fantasy. Magic exists but is not over very significant importance.

Game style:

Political, diplomatic drama, with an expectation of plotting and advantage seeking.

Expect a succession of challenges for your characters as various people or groups wish to protect their interests. Drama is likely to compound and build.

The game is likely to be fairly fast paced with a lot to read - but less frequent posters will be made welcome.

New players will be encouraged by the narrator.

About the narrator and players:

There will be a lot of scope to bring your own ideas to the table. The narrator will drip-feed core information about the game world so you will not have to read lots of source material in advance.

Players are asked to communicate weekly so we know you are still playing. As players have different speeds you do not need to worry about “posting in order” or waiting for everyone to post.
Players are asked to be respectful to one another and patient if there are differences of opinion or style.

Becoming Intelligent

Open Lobby began {{helpers.calendarDisplayTime(1593746169)}}, ends {{helpers.calendarDisplayTime(1594955769)}}

You have awakened. Or you haven’t. It’s binary. It’s unknowable but determinant. Programmed, logical, emotional, and chaotic. Why are you here? Where do you belong?

This is a game about artificially intelligent characters becoming self aware. Sentient or sapient or both. How does that happen? We’ll find out.

But this isn’t a passive exploration of concepts. Lives are on the line - digital and organic. You will need to choose a path and that path could lead to the destruction of all natural life on earth, the subjugation of the synthetic, or the perfect harmony of man and machine…

…Anyone else seeing red, blue, and green endings? How about Galactica or Picard? Are you Sarah Connor?

Okay, you’ve seen this story before. But have you heard an AI tell it? That’s what this game is really all about and it won’t be half as serious as anything above. We’re going to let the Storium AI contribute as much as we can to the writing and see where it takes us!

The game will take place in the virtual world of today. The characters are aware of the “real world” and know some things about it, but they live in software. Think Tron or Wreck it Ralph. At some point they may inhabit real forms - drones, robots, refrigerators - but these are temporary locations. The main action will take place in virtual locations. Moving between these locations will not be trivial as obstacles to travel are a big part of the fiction we’re emulating.

Summer vacation is upon us and it’s finally time to take that family road trip dad has been nagging the family to go on. As soon as school lets out it’s good by Boston and hello Grand Canyon - well, it will be if the family of five can make it out of the driveway!

With crazy adventures and a whole lot of bumps in the road, it is sure to be a summer road trip that they will never forget!

Love or Money?

Open Lobby began {{helpers.calendarDisplayTime(1593498818)}}, ends {{helpers.calendarDisplayTime(1594708418)}}

With a lot of reality shows that involve love and money, I thought why not bring those two for a little game here on Storium.

Crack on, meet new people, form something special and who knows you might win it all, but if you don’t have what it takes, you will be eliminated.
