Today, I want to look at forum RP, where people post on forums or forum-like sites in character.

Streaming Podcast tonight: Storybricks

We had a request to talk about Storybricks on the streaming podcast, so we’ll do that tonight. We’ll be starting around 8 PM Eastern and going for about hours as we talk about Storybricks while playing a game. We’ll likely be playing Minecraft, which seems appropriate for talking about Storybricks! :)

Watch it at: https://twitch.tv/Maulgrim

I’ve been bad about linking prior Streaming podcasts, so let me embed some of the ones from recent weeks below the break.

Why Storybricks failed
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 11:42 PM

After a week of talking a bit about the promise and a little behind the scenes, I wanted to look at the reason why all this talk is reminiscing instead of excitement about what we’re doing. Storybricks is no longer around and I wanted to dig a bit into the reasons for this.

Let’s take a look at why something that had promise withered on the vine.

Layers of the Storybricks setting
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 11:12 PM

I explained the concept of the original Storybricks setting yesterday with floating islands and a big bad with a world full of layers. Today I wanted to explain a bit about those layers and how they would work in my vision.

The basic Storybricks setting
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 10:58 PM

So what would the initial Storybricks game have looked like if we had created it? My job was to lead the creation of the setting. While others were worrying about how to model a character’s emotions and behaviors, I was thinking about how to showcase this in a world that people would play in.

So let’s take a look at what I was thinking as I was building a world from scratch.

How Storybricks would work

Building on yesterday’s post, let’s look at how Storybricks could have worked. I’ll go into a little bit of the design philosophy as well as some of the initial design we had about an original IP to showcase the Storybricks AI technology.

I figure it’s been a couple years and some people might find this interesting enough. Of course, time dims memories so bear with me.
