Haven't finished/started my #threeforged entry and am considering one of the following:

* writing a 1500 word retroclone
* writing just a setting
* writing an RPG in Toki Pona (http://tokipona.org)
* forgetting about it

I'm getting tempted again to run a Torchbearer long game on Saturday. There's so much fun stuff I would hate to miss, but I've also had more fun running Torchbearer than any other game. Would anyone like to switch off GMing with me part-way through it?

While I'm kind of into the idea of playing Torchbearer, I'm more into the idea of getting to see Clinton.

Anybody out there know of a situation where a builder put a secret room in a building and the building's owners didn't know about it? Looking for any dirt on architects or builders with a secret agenda.

The builder who built my house put in a back door. Luckily I'm a security expert and found it before it could be exploited.

This unbound theme is pretty inspirational. I have an idea. The specifics of it I'm keeping close to my chest because I am always embarrassed of things I make, but the core idea is that players would play the last people of one group being displaced by another group. The form of the game is an oral story -- written down for the competition -- that a mother of the displaced group tells to a member of the dominant group. At one point, the mother says, "I will tell you about my sons and daughters. Perhaps your sons and daughters will tell their story some day."

This is the hook, the RPG at the center of this. You, members of the dominant group, will retell stories about the last of these people. (When I say you, I mean the players. The characters are members of the displaced group.) It has been easy to introduce the characters, as I can tell the stories of all six children. What I'm struggling with is how to describe game mechanics. It seems jarring for this storytelling mother to say, "Now you know of my children. To tell their stories, you will need two dice, one black and one white." That is pretty ridiculous. 

What would you do? I'm thinking of introducing another narrator, a member of the dominant group in the future, who could say, "We play this game to honor these defeated heroes. We tell what could have been. To do this, we take two dice..."

Advice welcome!

Sounds awesome. Maybe use key phrases to underpin the challenge mechanic? For example, other players could ask questions, or challenge by saying things like "are you sure that's how it happened?" and/or offering a different account. Resolution could be based on voting on who gave the best/most interesting account of what happened.
