Description Edit | History

From the Introduction:

Monocle is a satirical game of funny accents, conspiracy theories, pretentious language, intrigue, outlandish claims, and having a good time.

It is set in a land where all the power rests in the hands of a select few, those fortunate enough to have a Monocle. The working class is oppressed and treated poorly by these tyrants, and –

I say there, good chap, don't you think this account is rather tendentious?

Errr, what's that now?

Really now, this is akin to calumny. Spare us all any tsuris from your recondite agenda and give us a propitious mention now and again, won't you?

I really have no idea what you saying at all.

Is sayink that you are supportink Great Revolution!

Now wait a minute, who are you?

An obstreperous, feckless, scrofulous cad with claims that, if they weren't risible, would be parlous indeed.

Is beink member of tyranny what is makink you such pretentious bastard, or are you beink this way on purpose?

Now listen here, uh, gentlemen, I'm trying to give the introduction to this game. I don't have time or space for this, whatever exactly this is.

Couscating! I was mentioning to my Amanuensis yesterday, which was rather pluvious you may recall, that these so-called 'Revolutionaries' really seem to find a quotidian casus belli. Wouldn't you agree?

Is tellink vicious lies, like always! Revoltink against the oppressors is sacred duty! Proletariats of the world...

...unite?

Da, comrade! Proletariats of the world are unitink even as we speakink!

You know, I don't think he actually knows what that means. His language is really quite guignol.

I'm not convinced you understand any of what you're saying. Do you just sit down and look up big words all day?

Why no, I am not so quiescent, though I am insouciant, it's true. Words are my métier. I will grant you eleemosynary and assume that was a failed attempt at jocose palaver.

Revolution is not beink stopped! Are broadcastink to whole world!

Actually, this is just the introduction to an RPG I am writing.

RP...G? Is conspiracy by out of touch elite to be enslavink the masses, yes?

Actually it's a game that people like to play, where they take on roles like –

Like Charades? Splendid! Did I ever tell you the time where I had to get my brother-in-law and second cousin to guess the Second battle of Saratoga?

Is goink on again.

  • Sigh* Well, I've run out of time, so I guess this will have to serve as my introduction.

Pip, pip! Time for tea and crumpets!

Sure, why not.
