A few months back I stumbled across a really neat website/game for people who enjoy storytelling. It's called Storium. I joined immediately. It's not free, but it's pretty cheap. So far I'm in two beginner stories, a sci-fi adventure where I'm playing a friendly android who's trying to make his way in the world, and a fantasy one where I'm a young, naive magician trying to help out a small village I've stumbled across that's dealing with a plague.
It's really fun. After I get good at it, I'm going to start some stories of my own. I'd love to see you there, too.
