A Lexicon game is a storytelling game designed specifically designed to be as collaborative and accessible as possible.
A game set on a space station would involve you;
Writing 100-200 words describing an event, location or character. In the course of your writing you may mention Space Commander Thrall or the Mess room.
After the initial posts are written, another round begins, where players expand an element of the world.* Someone might want to flesh out Commander Thrall in their own 100 words. They might then include references to the Sheliak War. the cycle can then be repeated.*
No one is compelled to stay between rounds, you’re just writing what you want and anyone can pop in and write their own article whenever the urge takes them.
