Good evening, afternoon, or whatever time it happens to be there, ladies and gents! I happen to be Andy, who happens to be a freelance web designer, musician, writer, and whatnot.

Roman Catholic, student of tabletop gaming, and someday soon I'll have my own designs in the field!

A Twitter Thought

So, just as an aside, I had an interesting idea to utilize Twitter. As some or possibly all of you know, Twitter is an online service which lets you broadcast 140-character "tweets" of information. It's like micro-blogging. This limit lends to all sorts of creativity in tweets, and so...

While reading a tweet from Steven Jackson Games, under its "#hook" tag, I was struck by how it encapsulated an entire setting, in just a few characters. "Now, you ain't never been out this far west before, but you're pretty sure Comanches don't normally ride bears and breathe fire. -Fox" Which in turn inspired me.

So, here's my suggestion to you. If you're on Twitter, make some one-tweet settings. Using the tag "onetweetsetting" before it, type out a brief characterization of a fantasy/scifi, etc., setting. Make a few. And spread the word, see what creativity we can get flowing!
