The Gifted and the Dreamers of Dreams

Postby Matthew Notch » Sat Aug 03, 2013 6:12 am

Enclosure is coming.


Enclosure is made up of two different games running simultaneously. This game is very narrative-based, and somewhat open-ended. There is a specific goal, and the ultimate destiny of all the characters has been determined, but specific details only emerge over time. However, you'll soon find that your fate is interwoven with the other characters in this world—and possibly with more than that. All I need from you, at this time, is a character name and occupation. The era is modern-day, and the city is large enough that no one knows each other just yet. There is no map here, only your imagination to guide you in your quest. Please note that you cannot play this game if you already have a character in this game.

Good luck!

One more thing: as details are revealed over the course of the overarching story, they will be logged in a separate "Read Me" thread. I'm looking for great RPers for this one! Let's see what you got.

Dammit Notch. It's like you somehow know I have a weakness for cool names. I was gonna swear off forum games. I really was. Especially after I learned that they had a the bizarre ability to make me disappear. But Nooooo. You had to go make something that looks awesome and drag me back in. Well, fine. Have it your way. I'm in.

Shoot. I'm not sure how much time I'll have for playing, but this looks intriguing.

I'm in. I'll be Russel Copperfield, third cousin once removed of the famous magician David Copperfield. Also a stage magician, but nowhere near as good.

Also, curse you for only letting us sign up for one.

I'm so torn. I want to play both games. This one I think I'm more suited for, and I have even thought if just the right modern-day character... but warriors and weapons and stats sounds like the kind of RPG I've always wanted to play ever since I found out what D&D was all about. I'm not sure I'll have the time necessary for either one, but this one certainly looks like it's encouraging larger posts.

What to do?

Okay, I'm game. Lawrence Olivi-lay, professional lepidopterist by day, amateur gigolo by night.

[Edit: Lawrence's back story is mostly that he's not very good at either of his jobs. He tends to try and catch a lot of butterflies that are actually cats, for example, and is thus often seen nursing various wounds. Actual butterflies frequently overpower him, and he is being actively stalked by a particularly veangeful Monarch, which he has named Stan. As a gigolo, well, he's not very good at all; the combination of a physique like a spaghetti noodle's, a fashion sense that would make Liberacci look like a plain Jane, and a less-than-ideal grasp on exactly what the gigolo job entails means that he hasn't had a customer in months, bringing his total count of customers up to one. His current moniker is actually a stage-name he started using while working as an unsuccessful exotic dancer--a job he quit because he got tired of having a g-string filled with pennies.)

It's always in the last place you look for it, unless you're the kind of person who keeps looking for it after you've found it.

I will be Jim Tiberius, the lonely young artist with social difficulties who spends his time weaving tales of strange worlds, and trying desperately to figure out what to do with his hands at a party. Should I fiddle with my phone? Oh god I forgot my phone. What if my car doesn't start? Oh god, the girl I like is looking at me. Oh god oh god shit shit shit.

Things are looking good! Don't forget to specify your character's name and occupation. Back story is encouraged. Keep in mind that plot points will be introduced, and your character may be doing things you hadn't anticipated during those times. Be prepared to be flexible! But I promise I'll try and stay true to your character, and once we get going I might even run it past you before I post it. In any event, carry on!

Hey, this looks kind of cool! The other game looks like it would be too tough for me, but I like to write, so I'll sign up here if that's okay with you guys.

Okay, I'll be... Morton! I'll be a graphics designer at a Kinko's/FedEx. My wife just left me and my kids have disowned me because I'm not going anywhere or doing anything with my life. It's my dream to bring my family back together.

Does that sound okay?
