Graphis - World of Arts and Crafts

Graphis - World of Arts and Crafts


[Need people!] This game is based on radical constructivism. All posts have to contain visual elements, self made of course.

886 readers have visited Graphis - World of Arts and Crafts since Lerke created it.



You wake up on a planet that is not empty. You start with nothing but your clothes, a bag with things you need in order to take care of yourself.
What you discover is up to you. If you want me or anyone else to intervene you give us a sign (f.e. INTERVENTION REQUIRED (person)).

You are one of many souls that were trapped in another dimension. By accident you have returned into the material world. There has been a dangerous event, there is a background story that will be revealed throughout the game.

I will try to force interactions now and then through storytelling.

There will be a lot of mapping in the game, places will be discovered, designed and illustrated.

Please present your character using these settings: APPEARANCE, SKILL, CHARACTER, PERSONALITY, MAIN GOAL.

This setting decides, whether you are a monster, berserk, fairy or freakin' plant.

Can you change people moods? Do you find things easily or know when people are lying? In the beginning you have one special skill.

Your character can become very complex, but in the beginning, what is the one word that describes his, her or it's personality? Clown, brain, looser, joker, teacher?

What were you trained for?

What is the most important goal of your character? Fame, happiness and fun are common rules. Try being creative.

Please use your own material. In the game you may partially refer to the real world, analogies can be fun.

A PROOF or evidence can be anything visual. A photo, poem, film, text, drawing etc.

LEVELING (suggestion)
With five posts you can get one level up. This may lead to a change of place or character.

[need people!] Graphis - World of Arts and Crafts

ch-ch-check it out

"Graphis - World of Arts and Crafts"

I would like to invite you to a new kind of role play, where most of the storytelling is based on comics, photographs, sketches, whatever you'd like to produce. It wouldn't have to be perfect. As long as you can create something a little more complex than stick figures, it's going to be awesome.
To me it would be quite a fortunate start here, possibly meeting interesting people, since I don't speak perfect English and there isn't such a thing as 'role play gateway' for the German language. Not that I know of.

Anyway, I'm open for suggestions, questions and I hope we can build something beautiful together.
