So, lemme break it down for ya sumdin' like dis:

I've been reading my greek Classics again.


One Comedy,
One Tragedy.

Starring members of the Chat forum, in the general context of Chat.

-We'll pick a general plot. Something SIMPLE. This isn't Drama study. It's the internet.
-Then we'll pick a protagonist, a support, and then a third, then fill in the blanks.

Then perform for 5 pages max, reaching a conclusion.

Sound good?

Well, perhaps if we start brainstorming firstly, a tragedy plot, more people may come around.

Tragedy. A bad thing has to happen. It doesn't get better by the end.

If we get enough, the play gets more interesting.

My first suggestion:

An Emo tries to gain acceptace from the forums, they threaten to kill themselves, and for a moment gains recognition, but alas, crushing blows come from an anti-hero. He (the emo) is banned, then promptly kills himself. Very Euripedean, if I say so myself.

Okay, but maybe we could sucker...errr....conscript some more help from the DT forums with some literary wit to help out. it's not like hte job is HARD. :P most forum members just need to be themselves...maybe in rhyme.

edit:
I could probably play the Koryphaios/moderate/play some gods for the play.

Setting: The Drowtales Forum

AristEmos - weary traveler - Gelorn
Kemistias - A citizen - Kembaru
Koryphaios - starsickle
Chorus - Alternating?
Kernistophos - an immortal god - starsickle (unless kern wants to play himself and has a good hold of Prose :) )
xxxx - A prosecutor - ???
xxx - A sympathizer - ???

SO...two roles open. anyone want to play? The more the merrier!

First, what does each one do?

I'm leaning more on the prosecutor. Btw, I'll probabbly only be able to post once a day.

prosecutor is the anti-hero that drives The Emo over the edsge, getting himself ultimately banned.

The sympathiser gets his hopes up.

I have not read any Greek tragic literature in quite some time, probably since "Antigone" in highschool. However! Since I have always been, and always will be an avid supported of well written and articulated play writting. *arches a brow* If it could be called an actual play, since it will be entirely textual. Though I guess plays are just text acted out by people. *wrinkles her nose* Alright, I'm in. Assuming you have not completely given up on the concept. *prods with a painstick*
