In April 2011, Mike Mearls did something cool with his “Legends and Lore” column. He intentionally misused the weekly poll software. Instead of asking “do you like the ideas in this column?” he asked “You stand at an intersection, with passages heading to the north, south, east, and west. Which way do you go?”
His crowd-sourced, poll-administered D&D game only lasted a few months, but it was a great idea. From now on, I propose that a play-by-poll D&D game be called a “Mearls”. I wrote some Mearls software, and I’ll be running a game this week (and maybe beyond).
D&D isn’t D&D unless it’s open-ended. Therefore, in this Mearls, there will be no pre-written choices. If you have an idea, you can suggest it. If people like it, they will vote for it. You can change your vote any time.
As the DM, I’ll advance the game two or three times each day. Join the game to get alerts!
