The Obelus Canon is a site-wide metaplot built on the premise that nearly every single individual instrumental in shaping human history on Valucre are descendants of four siblings: Davant, Nomalis, Ingsol, and Malark.
The aim of the Obelus Canon is threefold:
first, to explore genres that subvert the largely fantasy/adventure themes of Valucre such as sci-fi, superhero, speculative fiction, mystery, and psychological thriller.
second, to facilitate a long-term, interconnected, character-driven international plot involving as much of the original lore of Valucre as possible, giving these more depth through character actions and player contributions.
third, to create a hybrid roleplay-ARG experience through OOC and IC puzzles, riddles, codes and ciphers.
The Obelus Canon aims to be player-driven, with OBELUS in a facilitator role.
Integration of existing plots and lore into the Obelus Canon is encouraged.
Collaboration is key.
