This game is kind of like corrupt/misquote a wish in RPG form.
So, in this game you can choose to post 3 ways
If you put italic text on, you can be the narrator, and move the story in whatever direction you want. For example, you can make a person lose the lamp in between wishes, and have it go to someone else. You can create any setting you want, hell, if you don't like what is happening, you can just put "...and then they woke up."
You can be the genie, when you make a post as the genie, put your message in bold. The genie can grant, corrupt, and mishear wishes. If you mishear it, say what the genie thought he heard.
And finally, you can be a normal person. You can make wishes or try and get back the lamp when you lose it.
Anybody can play as any character.
Now to start the game:
In the deserts of ancient Egypt, a small excavation team digs up a dirty old lamp, one of them decides to send it back to their family at home, but before reaching it's destination, the box is opened by Joe Smith the mailman, who accidentally rubs the lamp, summoning the genie.
