Think of your favourite story, it might be a TV series or book or comic. Now imagine that you've created a character in the story. As the writer of that character you can affect the story and choose what happens next.

But remember, the story isn't decided. There will be other players who are each writing about their characters in the same story. The story might not go the way you thought it would, the direction is constantly changing!

You can create your own game with your own story, or you can join one that already exists.
