Since the invention of written language, people have written stories. Since before even then, people have told them. From the times immemorial to the time of today, there have been people who make the stories, and those who tell them. Anyone can do either, but there are two kinds of these people with special abilities: Truepens, and their counterparts, Silvertongues. Truepens are authors and storywriters who weave such vibrant, elaborate tales, they seem real. Silvertoungues are people with magnificent voices, and the skill to tell stories so well they become real. Any book, any story, any legend told by a Silvertongue comes to life, not just in the imagination, but I the world around them. Why do people see bigfoot? A Silvertounge spoke of it. Same thing with mythical beings like the Loch Ness monster and Unicorns. The same with the villains and monsters in darker tales as well. Murderers, assassins, people who want to take over or even destroy the world, all exist because a Silvertongue spoke of them. When the tale of a Truepen and the voice of a Silvertounge come together, it can create a tale so real, so magnificent, the events unfold in the story exactly as they would in the book. This is how many tales came true, it brought the rise and fall of many a civilization. The world's greatest weapons lay right under our noses- and may not even realize it themselves. You can be a Truepen, Silvertongue, or story character, or have one of each. No limit on the number of characters you can have, just as long as you can keep track of them all. Usual rules apply, etc., etc.
