The following is the text of the initial email sent out to prospective players:
Subject: Cosmic Edit
Hello, everyone, this is an invitation to play a new game that I have created. It's an online game that is part storytelling and part role-playing that really has no precedent, as far as I know and as such is hard to describe. It will involve much creativity. The game is called Cosmic. I don't want to give too much away about the story because I am planning a little something surprise at the beginning. It will be played on a Wikipedia-type site that I made, the link to which is here: http://cosmic.wikia.com/wiki/Cosmic_Wiki
As I said, the nature of this project makes it hard to describe in detail, but let's just say it will be epic. If you are interested, create a character. This character can be anyone you want but must be realistic. The character is a human from Earth in the present day, June 2009. No stats or anything are necessary at this point. Just create an interesting character from modern Earth. You can determine their skills, job, friends, likes, date of birth, background, history, whatever you'd like. The character can live wherever you one on Earth. They don't even need to be able to speak English. Go into as much or as little detail as you wish and then make a page for that character on the Wiki.
If you don't feel like playing, that is fine, the game will work with as little as three or as many as all of you. To get in at the beginning, confirm to me that you wish to do so through email and create a character by one week from now, midnight on June 9th. For that is when the game begins. Of course, you can leave anytime, but if you don't feel like joining right now and then change your mind once the game gets underway, the entrance must make sense storywise. So it's easiest to start at the beginning. Oh, one more thing, you should probably only join if you're able to post at least twice a week on average. But we can make the pacing as fast or as slow as it turns out is convenient. Additional guidelines and instructions are on the site.
It will be legendary.
