Now that Pendleton Ward has brought his animated fantasy series Adventure Time to the small screen it’s hard to imagine a world without Finn and Jake protecting the Candy Kingdom from the likes of Lemongrab and the Ice King, and fans of the show know episodes often play out like a kid oriented version of an RPG like Dungeons & Dragons.
Therefore it should come as no surprise that Pendleton Ward often plays, and runs, his own RPG sessions, and his initial idea for Adventure Time came from the fact that "Ward and his friends don't game as much as they'd like."
What is surprising, however, is that his latest RPG is being played out via Twitter, and the general public is invited to play along.
Here's how it works:
Go to the Quest Attack Twitter, and fire off some commands. If Ward likes what he sees, he’ll draw the results.
Oh, did we mention you have to write it out “text adventure” style, as in “Use sword on gnome”? It’s that kind of game. Ward can “pause” the game whenever he feels like it, but users have to unpause to keep moving forward.
