palmer_kun: (I'm Writing)
I've recently discovered the collabarative writing game called Lexicon.

Lexicon is a game where players, in the role of scholars in a fictional setting, are collaboratively writing an encyclopaedia. There are twenty-six turns in a game of Lexicon, with each corresponding to a letter of the alphabet.

The player whose turn it is must then write an encyclopaedia entry on a topic beginning with that letter. If undefined topics exist for that letter, they have to pick one of those; otherwise, they can make up one of their own. The entry must link to at least one previous entry (if any exist) and two undefined entries that begin with later letters (unless there's at least one undefined entry for every letter left in the game, in which case no new entries may be created).

Overall, the game can be fairly well described as a blend of role-playing, world-building and creative writing. It runs smoothest as a wiki, but could also be played on a Livejournal community.

(This entry pretty much is ripping [livejournal.com profile] active_apathy off directly. It's even the same poll she posted. So if you happened to vote on it over there already, that's why you can't vote here. Same poll, different voting booth, so to speak)

In case you haven't realized, I'm looking for players. To that end...
