Roleplay: Bouvet Island
A collaborative game run on AlternateHistory.com. Each day, more new people, objects, and what-have-you are brought to the island to spend a year together. As the game is run by various combinations of History, Video Game, Cartoon, Comic, and Anime nerds, it is quite insane. The first one is here, the second one here, and the third and current one here. Please note that they are viewable only to members of the site.
