MetaFour

A tabletop improvised story RPG based around the idea of metaphors vs. reality. Play as a character of your invention with a friend or friends, and interpret a list of prompts as real events or beautiful metaphors with the help of random chance in an absurdist real-time collaborative story jam.

Excerpt: 

Now that your character is made... we’ll get into how this works. You’re going to go ahead to the list of prompts. BUT! Here’s the important thing. Make sure you can only see ONE PROMPT AT A TIME. Like, scroll only to one at a time, or if you’re one of those analog people, make sure paper is covering the other prompts. This is a high-trust activity, this thing you and I have.

GO TO THE PROMPTS PAGES, BUT ENSURE THAT YOU CAN ONLY SEE ONE AT A TIME USING PAPER OR SCROLLING. DON’T BE A DICK.
