So there's a longer thing I've been meaning to kick my ass into writing for ages, but I just haven't had the drive to do anything longer than the occasional Battle Board post. I had an idea for an experiment that might help me warm up; a forum adventure in the style of the older ones on the SourceForge forums that got me into M:TG-themed character and lore building in the first place. Whether or not this works out, I still hope it'll be interesting for everyone to at least try.
The story ahead, however, has not yet been planned; it will be based off of and inspired by the material you provide. As you all commit your input and I, in turn, am left to put together a narrative from the twists and turns, what will (hopefully) result is an experience that's engaging both for the player to participate in and for me to flex my creative muscles with.
The first prompt is simple: post your protagonist, a legendary creature or a planeswalker. What everyone's doing together, and where they'll be headed, will depend on what inspiration the motley crew will give me. In a week or so, the prompt will change, no new players will be able to enter, and you'll be doing the actual adventure part; responding to the challenges of my prompts with actions from your characters in the form of card designs and a bit of writing. These will, in turn, shape the next part. Note that I will be writing the actions and reactions of your characters somewhat for the narrative that I present; I will try my best to stay in the spirit and character of your protagonists, but if you think I've gone out of character, do let me know.
Let me know if there are any questions, and I hope you'll give this thing a try!
