Everyone loves a good story, some even like telling one. How good are you at telling one when other people participate, though? Join us for a fun-filled evening of shared story-telling and word-play mischief as we host the Gridania Story-Go-Round every month in Mih Khetto's Amphitheater.
How to Play
The edge of the stage Mih Khetto's Amphitheater is reserved for story-tellers. Players are asked to seat themselves closely to one another, beginning at Stage Left, leaving as small of gaps as possible to ensure there's plenty of space. Late or new arrivals that join in after the story has begun are asked to seat themselves at the far end of the line going toward Stage Right.
Play will proceed Stage Left to Stage Right in seated order, going all the way across. If we make it all the way across the stage, then play circles back to the host, then from Stage Left to Right in seated order once again.
The Hosting Story-teller begins our evening with two paragraphs (posts) of introduction. The person to their immediate left picks up where they left off, continuing for another two paragraphs (posts), so on and so forth down the line until everyone has had their turn. It cycles back to the Host and we begin the cycle anew! It continues on through the evening until the story reaches a satisfactory conclusion (decided by the Host) -- or everyone goes home. Whichever comes first.
We'll be using the Yell channel for story-tellers, so audience RP and idle story-tellers can engage in light roleplay via say and emote between story posts.
A Few Ground Rules
1.) Don't be disruptive to play. Killing off the main character, ending the world, or going off on really wild, unrelated tangents will result in the Host ret-conning your part of the story and you will be removed from the line-up of contributors. Getting up and moving farther down the line to contribute more to the story also falls under this rule.
2.) Please be attentive to your fellow story-tellers. Story-tellers who are marked AFK by the system at the start of their turn will be skipped. Given the server's propensity to eat posts, each story-teller will be given a MAXIMUM of 10 minutes to complete their two posts. Once that time limit is reached, we will continue on to the next story-teller regardless of where the story ended up.
3.) You are welcome to just listen. As noted, the stage area in the amphitheater is reserved for participants. Those who just want to listen in and not contribute to the story are welcome to sit anywhere else within earshot.
4.) Please leave your Personal/Company Storylines at home. This is intended to be a relaxing, fun evening for folks. While light, conversational roleplay is welcome bringing in Storylines that detract from the event are not. All we're asking for is a little bit of courtesy!
