Conlang Exquisite Corpse
Conlang Exquisite Corpse was conceived of by Pete Bleackley. The rules are as follows.
- You will receive a sentence in a conlang and the information you need to translate it. (Jim Henry proposes calling this the qorpse.)
- After translating it, write a sentence that follows on from it in your own conlang, and send that, and the relevant information needed to interpret it, to your successor. Do not send on the sentence you received.
- Send a copy of all your materials to the game master
Here are the results.
