bored ghost is an actual play audio series of collaborative storytelling focused narrative over game play. While you the audience are the bored ghosts: spirits in the ether and wordless observers of this theatre of the mind, you are not passive. Instead, much like an immersive theatre experience, you exist inside the world of the story and have the agency to explore and follow the characters you find most interesting. What you experience of the story is up to you.
Ghosts are not always silent: they can shout through the ether and make their presence felt. For while the characters, worlds and their stories explored in bored ghost are constructs, your experience of those characters and the moments you spend in their world are real. Our shared stories are both ephemeral and lasting, for they exist both in the digital ether and in your memories.
The bored ghost players are akin to spirits themselves as they take on forms spun out of ethereal shadows, creating and inhabiting characters for you to experience before slipping out of those forms to return to the shapeless ether once more.
