The Never Ending Stories Forum is the host forum for Never-Ending Stories (NES). Originally located in Civ3 - Stories & Tales, the forum was moved to its own location in Other Games.

Never-Ending Stories originated as posters' alternate interpretation of history. They have since evolved into narrative games and political strategy simulations, "essentially a simulation of the real life world"[1] comparable in many respects to the board game Diplomacy[2]. NESes operate through a system of rules and customs that vary in complexity; inexperienced participants may suffer hostility from more senior players[3] (possibly because unlike Forum Games, NESing contributes to postcount).

DRAW Your Own Story's frequent exhibition of political power plays have led some to compare it with NESes, most infamously in the doomed Draw Your Own Nes.
