Welcome to the Playground, an out-of-character space where you can test out Wiki formatting, discuss the game, and amuse yourselves with terrible puns/memes/ship names. The GMs will not be moderating this page, and nothing written here should be considered IC knowledge. Have fun!

first! ;)

“The bear of doom of fire is wrought.
His golden eyes with ire are fraught.
His blazing gaze ignites the skies and burns the earth with mercy naught.
His roar like thunder rocks the land.
O Doombear!
Give me your command.
Provide for me, your devotee, and lend to me your guiding hand.

Give in thy soul to mighty bear.
Discard thy woes.
Of naught beware!
For doom he brings to all his foes, and to his enemies, despair,
But those who to the bear comply,
O Mighty Bear, up in the sky!
From doom and death they will be spared and live in peace until they die.”
—Mister Bridge

Whoever learned their lesson from previous games and didn't give players general edit access to the entire playground namespace is a big meanie, and not at all in the spirit of me making random bits of “malware” to use on the GMs or something I dunno I hadn't thought this far ahead

GM note - listen, we're just happy the GMs can now edit the playground page

It's almost like the person writing the notes for the new Wiki software was one of the miscreants involved in playgroundception ;)
