Storyteller blogger

Sean Buvala, the director of Storyteller.net, has a blog of his own, called A Quarter for a Tale. Whether or not one is in the storytelling business, there is a lot one can learn from the guy. As a gamer and storyteller in his own right, Bede would probably be interested in Buvala's workshop on storytelling and gaming. Buvala probably knows about Universalis, a storytelling game that even non-gamers like myself can enjoy. For those of you who don't remember, here is the run-down of a Universalis game I played years ago that had the themes of Jane Austen mixed with science-fiction: Space and Spaceability. As we discovered, “It is a truth universally acknowledged that an advanced ape in possession of a large flotilla must be in want of a planet.”

Timothy-- It was a lot of fun! More fun, I suspect, than it is for the people attempting to read the summary.:)

And see, THIS is why we should be neighbors! You are so utterly clever! :)

Noodle: We should be neighbors.

What about me? Do I get to be a neighbour, too?

Timothy: Are you willing to move from Canada to the United States? :) Then again, everyone in the House of Glee is tempted to move to Canada. You and Violet would be fun neighbors, I am sure.
