As many of you know, I'm rather strange. I draw inspiration and ideas from everywhere, from everything I do. So, naturally, when I'm taking an improvisation class, I'm going to pluck an idea or two from there.
So, my latest idea comes to me from a storytelling game we played. As soon as I heard of it, my first thought was, 'Hey, this'd work really, really well on Elliquiy." So, surprise of surprises, here I am, throwing myself to the wolves once more, and creating a new game idea.
The idea's rather simple: I don't come up with an idea. We do. Effectively, this would be a game of round-robin story-telling... we gather together a group of players, who take turns adding to the story. No pre-set plot, no pre-set characters... just whatever anyone feels like adding.
Of course, there'd be rules and guidelines; not just anyone can step in and post! We'd agree, beforehand, to some basic guidelines and rules for the game; sexual level/content, general setting of the story, personalities of characters... just to maintain consistency. If a new player felt like joining, they'd have to agree to be bound by the same guidelines... but outside that, it could lead to a very wide-sweeping, fascinating story.
I'll admit, it's mostly an experiment. The story we told in class started fairly well, and the ending tied it all together... but some people decided to steal the story, and throw any semblance of a plot to the wind, though, overall, the good 'writers' outnumbered the bad, and the story was quite solid. I'd love to see something like that with the quality of writers we have here on E... I know this will, if nothing else, prove interesting.
