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" comparable in many respects to the board game Diplomacy. NESes operate through a system of rules and customs that vary in complexity; inexperienced participants may suffer hostility from more senior players (possibly because unlike Forum Games, NESing contributes to postcount).
