Hello everyone interested in playing a game of Lexicon,

I now have a wiki up at lex1.lilfluff.com for the game to take place on. Right now it's the absolute bare bones (literally installed, given a title, and an admin account created) but more is coming, and quite soon. Three cheers for dokuwiki, once my ISPs nameservers finally believed the subdomain existed I was able to do the basic setup in bare minutes.

So now we just need a final roll call of who is interested in playing and whether we want to go with the default default rules or variant rules. The Rule of X looks like a good optional rule to pull in.

Note: To avoid wikivandals the server isn't set up to allow open registration. Accounts will be created for those who are participating.

So Thursday I asked if anyone would be interested in a game of Lexicon. Three people have responded so I think we've got enough to start (but more are welcome to jump in!). Just a few questions first...

  • Lexicon looks like it works best with a wiki... and I just noticed that the wiki hosting service I have an account on no longer provides free non-education wikis.

    • I don't mind people recovering operating costs and making a profit but seriously, $50 for the lowest cost plan?

    • Wikia brings my browser to its knees if I have Javascript on so it's not my first or second choice for an alternate wiki host.

    • Anyone have a suggested service? I could potentially set up a wiki on a subdomain of lilfluff.com, but that would likely delay things.

  • Lexicon starts off with only a broadly brushed theme, but I don't see any reason not to ask what general categories people are interested in. So what do you think, should this be a fantasy world? Science fiction? Previously unknown past?

    • ...Something else?

  • Shall we go for the baseline Lexicon or would you like to bring in one of the alternate rules?

I've found myself wanting to do a Lexicon game recently, is there anyone else who would like to give it a go?

Title: Rhett's newsgroup posts
Fandom/'verse: Fenspace, what's Fenspace (TL:DR for those not following the link), sometime around 2006 a mysterious substance called handwavium is invented/discovered. Handwavium is liquid plot-device powered by intent, belief, and memes. Paint some on a car and you can get a flying car. Or a car that transforms into a bipedal humanoid vehicle. Or a car with wacky Inspector Gadget type equipment.
Summary: College student Rhett fell asleep mid-handwavium experiment and woke up to discover he'd accidentally dosed himself and was now a short and young looking catboy. These are a few newsgroup posts he made in the weeks afterwards.
Warnings/Triggers: Ought to be safe

Note: Mostly unedited. Inspired by other bits of writing I have for Rhett, but none of this is determined to be canon yet.

Hello out there, your friendly new Earthbound feline biomod here. I had no idea that newsgroups were still a thing or that there was a whole fen hierarchy.

The good news, apparently the local authorities are tired of playing hunt the biomod. The bad news, the paperwork. Oh lord the paperwork.Continues under the cut, click here to read. )

The following document is typed from a scanned copy in the Family Archives. Oral History interviews suggest it was most likely written in August of 1961. Before the year ended this handwritten list of proposed rules was rewritten into a contract (since lost, anyone who believes they have found a copy please contact the librarian!) and then in April of 1962 into the Manlow Farm Contract – the earliest ancestor of the current Family Charter.

Mrs. Toler,

I am pleased to report that since my prior letter Miss Mika's participation in class has been much improved. She had been reporting to class on time and listened to instruction. Miss Mika's performance in the recent gymnastics unit was impressive and I would be pleased to see her in next term's gymnastics class. You may wish to discuss the possibility of an Academy gymnastics scholarship as I believe she could earn one if she continues to put in the same effort shown recently in General Physical Education.

I am less confident about her desire to enroll in introductory swordsmanship. click to continue reading... )
