This “story’s” main purpose is to show you the site-functionality for a story written in Adventure-Mode.
I will write one sequel and also show off some possibilities on how you could use the site.
This is in no way a complete overview and I am excited to see what you will create out of the base functionality.
You can use this story and its contents to see how “Bookmarks”, “Steps”, “Favourites” and the interplay between walked and charted paths work. You can even write dummy comments or Story-Blocks here to get a hang of the site before you start your real story.
For this adventurous story, let’s have an example hero called Sir Batington. He travelled for some time and it is already afternoon when he reaches his destination: Example Town. He searches for an epic quest because he is bored as hell. After entering the town, where should he go first: an inn, a bar, the castle, or the church?
And with that example above I have already shown you a way of using this teaser text for your story. You could talk about what you plan to do or what you want to achieve with this story. You could also set up rules or explain how someone could join this story if you have set the writing rights only to specific people (“Closed Group”).
I would recommend you to always set up a basic scene like above so people know where to start from. In contrast to mine, I would propose to give a little bit more love for the details.
How does the town look? Is it prosperous or desolated? How is it build? Is everything wooden, made out of stone or are some other materials in there too? What is the general attitude of the people in this town? Are they friendly and open to strangers; or rather reserved or even hostile?
Give your collaborators enough content to pick up from.
