Welcome to By Mice and Men, a story in many voices.

Join me in creating a fictional character in a real-time story of our collective design. Let us, in the words of Speed Levich, be "the authors of ourselves, co-authoring a gigantic Dostoevsky novel, starring clowns." You create your character: no magical powers or endless wealth, but you can have a checkered background, untapped skills, and social connections. You can even be yourself. I will manage the world, ensuring that you all have dilemmas to juggle and that your actions effect the other characters, and I will publish a public narrative. At least one of you will die. At least one of you will reap good fortune at another's expense. At least one of your plots will break the third wall.

The game has yet to begin, and I'm looking for more players. See the introduction for more information.
