    Let's get back on this. It's not even close to finished. We've only got about a month left.

    • Anyone is allowed to contribute a story for a character, as long as it follows the rules, correct? I'll get started right away if that's the case.

    • Just submitted my story.

    • Before I go writing, can somebody explain the mechanics of the die? .-.

      Does the holder decide what aspect they want to enhance? Or does the side it land on determine that? If so, what would be purpose of having a number in the first place? Does it scale from best (6) to worst (1) case scenario? And are there more facets to explore? Can we just make them up (goes back to first question) or get specific? Why can't it be dice so I don't confuse die for actually dying? c:

      If this was all laid out prior, I apologize. Last thing I want is to write something and it not fit the established lore, though. .-.

      Dies are weeeeiiirrrd. c:

      Read the majority of them. Most are self-contained apart from a few references needed to establish continuity, and the ritual with the die is vague at best.

      There's no way to tell which are and are not self-contained without reading them all, though. Mind, admins will clean up any inconsistencies if your story does contradict previous entries, but it's nice on the writer's part to do that themselves.

      The die is six-sided and by now all six sides have established "fates" associated with them--broad ones like "Discovery," "Fortune," "Health," etc. which leave a lot of room for play by the author. As a collaboration, there's a lot of intentional vagueness in order to leave room for this play, so that new authors can add to the lore. What's been established about the "ritual" is that, generally, a mysterious businessman sort of being usually approaches the victim and offers them a chance to change their life. They sign their name on a list and roll the die, and usually, their wish is corrupted in some unforeseen way.

      A lot of the technicalities are also discussed on the article's Talk Page, so read that and post there if you still have questions. If something hasn't been decided yet, you're generally free to make the decision yourself.

      Alright, that explains a lot. Thanks. So has the fourth been decided yet? I know Power was implied to be, and I think I'll use that in my story if that's fine.

      ... Is it? ;p

      And I'll make sure to take the talk page's contents into consideration, yeah.

    • Yes, 4 is "Power."

    • I intend to add to it, I promise. Just trying to find a concept that works. I have never written well when it comes to fitting a story into a set plot line. As soon as I can find something that is scary and relates to dice, I'll post into the thread.

    • I already have a brand new character that has a basis of this! Wow, this came at the right time!

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. This project is turning out great. I love the historical parts of it too. I'll add another part before Halloween

    • what are the restrictions? Also What is this

    • Can someone put the link so I can help?

        Loading editor
    • The link is in the first post. At which all of the rules, as well as the nature of the project, are clearly outlined.

        Loading editor
    • Since some people are apparently blind (I'm being blunt because there is no reason not to have seen the link and this is the second time I've created a linked thread where people have said "WHERE'S DA LINK?!"), I've blown up the size of the link. It should be CLEARLY VISIBLE NOW.

      Are we allowed to contribute more than twice?

      Yes. There's just a wait - after you write a section, two others must write one before you write another.
