Let The Game Begin!

Most of us like playing a game now and then. Storium - The Storytelling Game

Some of us would rather play games than go to work.

It’s been said Life is a Game

It’s believed Stories began around our ancestors’ campfires

Well, I’m a writer and I’m always looking for ways to encourage folks who also might want to be writers.

And, I’ve found a delightful way to help people write stories by playing a game!

I wrote about it recently in two articles:

Storium — The Online Storytelling Game

Games, Life, and Storytelling

Now, I’ve created a game in Storium and I’m looking for players

“Tilly”, my Best Friend, has already joined in, and I need 8 more folks before I begin the story.

I’m the Narrator and all the other players are Main Characters

I’ll show you the Synopsis for my first storytelling-game in a bit but I should mention that Storium is in Beta and should be released to the public by November.

If you’re already a writer (or, you want to play some games that could help you become a writer), you can create and play-out story ideas with others by donating as little as $10 to the Storium Kickstarter project :-)

Now! I present the storytelling game I’ve just created (and, you don’t need to pay money to play):

Forging The Future - A Storytelling Game

Here’s my Synopsis:

April 15, 2099 — It’s time to create an additional Home for humans.

Starship Morna, with her 95 crew members, is ready to leave Earth-orbit.

Earth’s remaining inhabitants pause—-in their exertions to finalize the restoration of civilization—-to send their farewell messages to Morna’s crew via the InterMeshWeb.

Future messages to and from Morna will be few and far between because of the incredible distance she’ll travel

Morna might return to Earth, if the first leg of the mission succeeds—-voyage to Earth’s nearest neighboring system, Alpha/Beta Centauri.

The crew will attempt to establish a colony on the planet Centauri A—orbiting the Centauri double-star-system in a “figure-eight”.

A ColonySeed Hub has already been successfully landed on Centauri A and is located in an area with lush vegetation and water.

All crew members have been trained in all conceivable necessary functions.

Estimated duration of first leg of mission: eight years.

Preliminary time estimate to establish Colony: one year.

Second leg of mission—-Earth-return of up to half the crew: Optional.

The settlers will defer any considerations of implementing a particular form of government until Consultations can be completed with a convocation of all National representatives on Earth in communication with the Centauri A Colony.

Naturally, due to the lengthy signal-time between the Colony and Earth, it is to be expected that the Colonists will experiment with various Administrative Procedures.


To join my game and create your own character, you don’t have to pay any money—just send me an email: :-)
