The latest RPG I’m playing isn’t a tabletop game with 600+ pages of rules. Oh, not at all – I’m playing Tweet RPG.
It’s a game played (appropriately enough) on Twitter. The rules for character creation and game play are explained in a few paragraphs. The players vote on the course of action the hero will take at a given point in the story. The choice with the most votes is the action the hero takes. There are a few other kinds of votes as well, but they really are very simple.
I’ve followed @tw33t_rpg for a few months now, but this is the first opportunity I’ve had to join in on a game. I’m also honored to be the creator of the first character to play in this game: Douglas McMichaels, law enforcement officer of America’s Wild West. The gameplay started just this morning, and you can join in any time.
Take a look at the link below to see the 83 characters people created, and have a look around the site for the rules of the game. And, please, if you are interested, join us!
