Well, it's finally that time. After about a year of soft development, the AOC (Architects of Creation) are off the ground and running with our first batch of Alpha-testers jumping right in. We have some obvious front-runners, and some laggers behind, but that's okay, because we need each and every type of individual playing to learn more about the game itself, and the way it should be played.
Maybe you don't know what the AOC is. That's unfortunate for you, but fortunate for me, because I get the joy of telling you! The AOC is just a simple game right now, nothing fancy, but it's an ARG set in RL, the setting is unique to the player, and the storyline is unique to the player, however, some things are universal.
For instance, every player has an agent, their link to the game, their coach and motivator, their partner in crime (or stopping it!), and each agent assigns one or more players missions and adventures, all leading up to campaigns. These missions and adventures are tailored towards the player's goals as they gain points for completing missions and accumulate experience, skills, and resources that lead them towards acquiring Real Life levels in real life classes, such as 'Builder', 'Yogi', 'Fighter', 'Ranger', 'Wizard', Alchemist', 'Warlord', and more. The class potential is limitless, and it's expected that no two players will be alike in class, lvl, and skill.
Another interesting feature of the AOC is that it is cross-platform. Missions can be found online, in your email, delivered by phone, text, carrier pigeon, or burned into the wood floor of your house (JK! We'd never do that to your house). While most of our members meet with their agents on Facebook, some meet in RL or over the phone to facilitate anonymity where it is desired, and encourage creative solutions for otherwise droll and mundane communication.
Sound interested? Well, we've got a player website set up and ready to host your char, and plenty of Agents waiting by the phones to help you build character and become heroic!
