Give it a Test Drive! Have fun! Feel free to do some character banter or back and forth, to see how the games are run. Anyone can chime in, playing a character or the role of the Storyteller/GM. Only rule is that none of this actually happens to your character...just an opportunity for finding your character's voice.
There was a palpable buzz outside of the elegant Stewart Regency Hotel. The entry way of the lavish historical trademark had been adorned with plush red carpet, velvet red ropes and rich silver poles. White silken tapestries dressed up the antique appeal of the nearly one hundred year old, twenty-story, Victorian style establishment. Camera crews and reporters were gathered outside, in an organized sort of chaos as each rehearsed their lines, for the entertainment section, of the various media that they were there to represent.
The invitations that most of the guests received had been a mystery. They didn't know why they were invited or who was inviting them. Personalities and apprehensions ebbed throughout the crowd as they entered the hotel and the opportunity that the letter of invitation had hinted at.
Miguel clutched at his invitation, his hands shaking slightly in anticipation. It had only been a few years since his sister's death and a few months since his mother followed, broken by the man she had loved, the man who had turned into a monster in her eyes. Life had been hard after his father's fall from grace, and his family had paid, dearly, for his father's sins. His sister had broken first, committing suicide because she had found out that she, like her father, had abilities beyond the normal ken. She could read minds, and she feared that would make her a killer. She was partly right, only it was her own life she took. Miguel wondered idly how long before he cracked under the strain. The strain of being different, being a monster.
The morose young man was distracted from his internal reverie by a soft clearing of someone's throat. The line had ceased to move while he was lost in thought and he suddenly realized it had stopped because it was his turn to pass through security.
He took a slight step forward, the zipper of his overcoat clicked softly against the polished silver stand as he handed over his now wrinkled invitation. "Miguel Jones." he said, his voice sounding far away, as if coming from the opposite end of a long echoing hallway.
The security guard gave him a quick once over, his eyes registering the slightly disheveled black hair, the bangs that hung in the young man's eyes were clearly long past needing trimmed. The grey suit, under the long over coat was rumpled, as if it had been sitting in a hamper for days before being hastily thrown on. The black shoes had scuffs that were deep enough to show the leather underneath the dye. He shook his head slightly in distaste. The invitation was legit and the name matched the guest list, so he had nothing to say, though his expression showed he was clearly displeased with letting the young man through the doors.
Miguel swallowed nervously, aware of the guard's scrutiny and distaste at his appearance. He almost turned and ran from the disapproving look, but the guard bowed his head slightly, handed the invitation back to Miguel and waved him through. Miguel sighed softly, his breath trembling as he passed through the doors into the hotel's posh lobby. One obstacle down, only several thousand to go.
- Your turn.
Testing the editor. This is only a test. If this were not a test, this would be more poignant and funny.
People here can be funny?
Lets see if I can spell. This is a tets.
No :< Maybe if I clear my cache.
That worked now I get some nice underlining, although SCAYT does not think that tets could possibly equal test. Nor does it know its own acronym.
China: Very interesting on it not giving test as an option. I thought it was funny that it didn't know it's own acronym, I guess they didn't figure that people would be typing about it. AND I'm glad that clearing your cache fixed it. It also has no love for my '...' that I love to use so much.
So, it works like this, then?
You got it. :) ...and then, for actual games with a game taxonomy, the updates will show up on the "My Games" page. Each GM and player are subscribed to the games that they're playing in or want to lurk in.
Interesting. Uwee hee hee!
The evil clown sat within the pilot's seat of his magical mecha. The flames behind him rose higher, as he filled his nostrils with the smell of the smoke. Ah, now this is final fantasy.
The pink elephant in the room exclaimed, "Don't look at me!"
The entire room proceeded to look at the pink elephant.
How interesting. What a concept. Let's see how well this works.
Just checking if this works:
Nope! I guess not.
