This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

So what's this "Venice Chronicles" business?

So I read this blog entry and, somewhat curious, I checked out the game's website -- but having visited it, I'm not sure what exactly is going on.  Anyone know or want to fill me in?

I don't know a ton about it, but I've been scanning Malcolm's blog and reading his livejournal since he's been working on it. It seems to be a kind of RPG that focuses on romantic themes and stories rather than what we think of as "traditional" themes like killing things and taking their stuff. The intent is definitely not facilitating cybersex though.
The Pernicious Light, or The Wreckers of Sword Island;
A Goblin's Progress, or Of Cannons and Canons;
An Oration on the Dignity of Tash, or On the Elves and Their Lies
