Lexicon: The Makers Conspiracy

 

The Story

 

Good evening friends,

 

You are all investigative journalists, quit or driven from your job after the Protocols. At great risk but for the greater good, you have taken it upon yourselves to uncover the *real* truth about the origins of the Makers Conspiracy, from the January Manifestos to Pieretti's speech on the night of the Containment Orders.

 

Good night, and good luck.

E.L.

 

The Game

The Lexicon RPG is an experiment in collaborative world building. It's a game in the sense that players work within defined rules to accomplish their objective, and it's role-playing in that one of those rules asks them to approach the task of the game via an adopted persona.

 

Beginning from a prompt or "rabbit-hole", the players flesh out an intricately connected story universe by writing entries on key facets of that universe: people, places, events, concepts. The central project of lexicon is to force the player-storytellers to interact in unexpected ways with the unfolding story and with each other while in the process creating an incredibly rich and detailed world out of whole cloth.

 

The Lexicon RPG was first proposed by Neel Krishnaswami (original rules) and has intellectual roots in the Electronic Labyrinth and Milorad Pavic's lexical novel, Dictionary of the Khazars.
