Welcome to Imythess, the border between dreams and reality. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Imythess is a creative writing board where you narrate the story of a character in the medieval land of Imythess, on the planet Chaon. Each topic is an opportunity for your character to interact with the world and its peoples by cooperatively writing pieces of a story with other members, one post at a time. We call this role-playing, because you assume the identity of your character as if it were your own.

In order to play, you must register an account for each character you would like to write about, and begin their tale by filling out their basic profile information: Race (human, elf, demon, etc.), class (warrior, mage, etc.), physical appearance, and any other personal details you would like to describe. You are also encouraged to come up with some background history information for what your character's life has been like up to the point at which their story in Imythess begins.

There is no approval process or application required to join, so long as you follow the rules then you are free to write whatever character details you choose. Registration is simple, fast, and completely free.

A Pound of Flesh


Irena as Hit-Girl


Ioann Gregori as Big Daddy

“Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have [removed]ed with? ...That's us.”

This topic is complete at 25 posts and approximately 11500 words.

Topic Summary

In their reunion topic after the events in Quarantine Camp #2, Irena tracks down Ioann to thank him for his kindness. She ends up being sent on a trivial run that involves breaking into a scorchliner and stealing paper. Ioann, in a fit of paternal guilt, decides to keep an eye on the errant errand-runner but accidentally attracts the attention of an ethereal Sentry. In a twist of illogic, he's drawn into that plane, where he encounters a terrifying being that has taken a keen interest in him. Meanwhile Irena encounters the demons of her past and narrowly avoids 'rescue' by these erstwhile siblings. After a bit of deus ex Stranger that wouldn't have been out of place in a Harry Potter sequel, Ioann and Irena confront the would-be brothers and sisters on Ioann's doorstep. They successfully channel their inner Walt Kowalski and scare them off. The thread ends with a job offered, then accepted.

While the topic is relatively short, the exploration of their reluctant, guilt-driven pseudo father-daughter relationship, deposition of highly important background lore, and elevation of the stakes of (at least) Ioann's ongoing narrative, as well as some damn fine writing by Irena, we'd like to collect for an Epic Initiative.

200 gold and 3 prize pool tickets to both of us. Thank you!
