Welcome to Glossolalia! Social Entropy's go-to hotspot for play-by-post roleplaying, colored text, and labial digits since 2009. Here at Glossolalia, we care about you, the customer, and we strive to provide you with the highest quality, most compelling material for your PbP needs. Whether you're a fan of gritty pulp, high-flying science fiction, psychedelic fantasy, or giant robots, we believe you'll find something here to enjoy.

Our catalog currently includes five games, from a variety of talents:

Derelicte.png
From: @Speed Racer
System: "Speed Says"
Speed Racer's epic tale of pirates sailing the sands of a ruined, dry world has been captivating and humiliating its players for nearly a year now. Set on a dried out Earth long after a mysterious apocalyptic event, it follows the crews of two ships as the search out... something, I'll be honest, I kind of got lost. Its unforgiving nature, and harsh environment provide a crisp, warm experience, with a hint of salt.
Accepting Players: Probably!
Creating a Character:
Come up with a cool idea for some kinda salty sailor. Then, give him or her three [Talents] and three [Flaws]. More importantly though, give the character a neat personality and backstory. The plot of Derelict is heavily driven by the characters, because Speed is too lazy to come up with his own plots it helps to foster a sense of collaborative storytelling. So having your character be interesting is far more important than specifying what they're good or bad at!

Your stat sheet should be formatted like:

[Character Name]
[Talent] [Talent] [Talent]
[Flaw] [Flaw] [Flaw]

Also, if you play Derelict you get to contribute to its worldbuilding! If you have a neat idea about how some part of this hideous Frankenstein of a setting should work, then post it! It will become "canon," presuming it doesn't contradict anything that someone's already come up with and pending Speed's approval.


Resonancee.png
From: @Stilts
System: Proto-[%]
Stilts' Resonance is a delightful combination of classic science fiction and high-flying martial arts. Set in the far future, it focuses on a group of Resonant Monks as they track down their brothers and sisters after a catastrophic invasion of the Monastery-Planet Callisto. Its mix of science and mysticism give it a light, airy feel, that I, personally, really appreciate.
Accepting Players: Possibly!
Creating a Character:
Every player in Resonance takes on the role of a novice monk of the Temple of the Harmonic Mind. Because you have only started your journey, you haven't fully developed any skills yet. Your stat line should look like this:

[Group] [Character Name] 0
[??? (???)] [???] [???]
[I: Harmonic Mind Gi]

As the game progresses, Traits will be announced that any player can take and add to their statline. These traits are permanent and cannot be gotten rid of once you take them.

[??? (???)]] refers to your character's fighting style. In the parentheses goes the element that your character can manipulate through martial arts. After acquiring an element, I will determine an appropriate name to fill in the other set of ???, giving a label to the way you conduct yourself in battle.

The number next to your name represents your character's current Ki Points. You earn Ki Points from roleplaying like a boss, and can spend them to increase your chances on things.

The third line is your inventory, where important items your character owns are listed. Everyone starts with a Harmonic Mind Gi, which protects you from lethal damage. You can also start with any weapon you like, as long as it's martial-arty.

Wanderere.png
From: @DJP3710
System: Modded Proto-[%]
DJP's anachronistic blend of fantasy, magic, and elemental spirit-power became a quick favorite among his players. To be honest, I've kind of totally lost track of what it's about, but I assure you it's really quite good, and you should try it some time.
Accepting Players: Maybe?



Titane.png
From: @Dichotomy
System: TITAN Custom
Dichotomy has recently started his own game, a heady blend of giant robots and giant robots. Its set in a time of giant robots, featuring men and women who pilot giant robots against monsters and other giant robots. Its giant robots, purple text, and giant robots give it a giant robot texture, and a faint cucumber aftertaste.
Accepting Players: No.


Finally, we have DarkRED, my latest game.
DarkRedB.png
From: @DE?AD
System: [%] BETA Code
Directly following the events of SlateGray, DarkRED is set within The City - the only stable society within the rolling white mists of the Haze, watched over by the mysterious and ancient HEX tower. Players take on the roll of any character they can imagine, banding together into teams to vie for control of the city, go on missions, or explore the ever-shifting reality beyond the city walls. Be a criminal. Be a hero. Be whatever you'd like. In DarkRED the adventure is up to YOU!
Accepting Players: Yes!
Creating a Character: Rules for Character Creation can be found in the Documentation. Character Statline can be found below.
[Name] [Team and ID Code] A: [ ] [ ] [ ]

    Well, time to wrap things up. It's been a good run.

    Time to put the chairs on the tables, I guess.

    It was a good run.

    And that's how Anti killed the Gloss thread.

    Oh, I just realised something! @Speed Racer

    I'm going out drinking tomorrow evening so I might stay for the entire Derelicte session.

    We are Derelictin' tomorrow, right?

    Going to spend the next few hours grinding out the flaws in Shade. By the end of tonight it should be ready to go.

  • DuxDux A host to DarknessRegistered User regular
    Also get to writing an update, De?ad.

    You lazy bum.

  • StiltsStilts Machinist "Don't forget to thank me if this works."Registered User regular
    Godammit, DE?AD.

    Of course, now that thread title is making me think it's the Renegade dialogue option for talking to the Turian councilor.

    "Ah yes, 'carbosilicates.' The immortal race of sentient, recycled biomaterial allegedly invading from another universe. We have dismissed that claim."

  • DE?ADDE?AD Registered User regular
    I'm doing homework, @Dux.

    I'll try to get one up this weekend, though.

    @Stilts I am, genuinely, trying to figure a way out of this for you guys.

    I'm not seeing any, so you guys are really gonna have to surprise me.

  • DuxDux A host to DarknessRegistered User regular
    Good luck with your homework, dude.

  • StiltsStilts Machinist "Don't forget to thank me if this works."Registered User regular
    I will put my thinking cap on and try to get a post out later tonight, if not sooner.

  • DE?ADDE?AD Registered User regular
    Thanks, @Dux. It's not going great. Honestly, I've been so distracted by Gloss this quarter that I've found my scriptwriting class to just be incredibly difficult to focus on.

    @Stilts Worst case scenario: your team will spend the first portion of the game in an insane asylum.

  • NeoTomaNeoToma Registered User regular
    If this goes to a courtroom scene can I be their lawyer?
    Gonna Phoenix Wright this shit.

    "so I got you plea bargin. A week in Carcer and speed's arm. It's a pretty good deal, I think we should take it."

  • StiltsStilts Machinist "Don't forget to thank me if this works."Registered User regular
    Oh, so I'll get to break out of imprisonment for the...fourth time?

    Yeah.

    Twice in Derelict, once in Titan and (probably) once in DarkRed.

    Well, at least you'll finally be able to get that Mad Science degree.

  • DuxDux A host to DarknessRegistered User regular
    Now I'm sort of hoping there's a mad scientist wing in the insane asylum.

    Ironically, it was built by a mad scientist.

    That makes me pretty tempted to just surrender, actually.

    Been using Pandora to increase my stock of electronica to use as background music for Resonance. Found at least two really nice ones so far.

    Also figured I look through the Tron Legacy remix soundtrack, cuz hey, the original is pretty damn good.

    Oh God why are so many of these songs either boring or awful? The Solar Sailor remix is decent, but the Glitch Mob Derezzed is the only one I actually like.

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    i hate pretty much every single song on the tron legacy remix album, especially the remix of derezzed

    Yeah, I know you despise that one.

    I dunno. I definitely love Daft Punk's very clean, crisp approach to electronica.

    But I also like how Glitch Mob makes it really dirty.

    I wouldn't want TGM's version to replace DP's, but I like it as an alternative style.

    I need to get a proper daft punk playlist arranged to help with homework time

    probably would be easier if I actually owned one of their albums

    but there's always youtube, I guess

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    electronica needs to be pure and pristine

    thus spake antimatter
    i hate justice and I don't really get why people compare them to daft punk
    i am confused, honestly

    honestly @Dubh

  • DubhDubh First of the Order The HollowsRegistered User regular
    I mentioned it because I figured you or someone else would have suggestions

    hell, the more the merrier

    I like mixing recommendations around

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    honestly, i'm the huuuuuuuuugest fan of Alive 2007, for their normal material
    Robot Rock/Oh Yeah, first song, pretty decent
    Touch It/Technologic is pretty aggressive
    Face To Face/Short Circuit is a fantastic track
    Superheroes/Human After All/Rock 'n Roll is my favorite from it

    Discovery, of course, has Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, One More Time, and Aerodynamic
    Digital Love and Something About Us are songs i'm fond of from Discovery as well

    Homework has Da Funk, Around The World, Indo Silver Club, Rock 'n Roll, Oh Yeah, Burnin, and Funk Ad, which is a sample of Da Funk backwards

    I don't like Human After All that much except for the title track, Technologic, and Robot Rock, the latter two were better off remixed in Alive 2007

    The Tron Legacy soundtrack is stunning
    The Son of Flynn, Rinzler, The Game Has Changed, End of Line, Derezzed, Fall, Disc Wars, C.L.U., the End Titles

    Rectifier is scary but an amazing piece of work, very intense


  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    (honestly, i love the entire tron legacy soundtrack except for Adagio For Tron, which makes me sad)
