-Every Tuesday, players meet in a room at Worcester college. These meetings represent the monthly meetings of like-minded conspiracy theorists on the Virtual Reality [[freenet|#CLASSIFIED#]] chatroom; players represent a small group of people who have gained access to #CLASSIFIED# either via contacts or via their [[organisations|Organisation]]. It's definitely not the real world, but it's close enough that you should have no trouble recognizing it.+Every Tuesday, players meet in the [[location|Morley Fletcher room of Worcester College]] . These meetings represent the monthly meetings of like-minded conspiracy theorists on the Virtual Reality [[freenet|#CLASSIFIED#]] chatroom; players represent a small group of people who have gained access to #CLASSIFIED# either via contacts or via their [[organisations|Organisation]]. It's definitely not the real world, but it's close enough that you should have no trouble recognizing it.
During these meetings, players meet with other conspiracy theorists from around the world, exchange news, discuss current events and make alliances, hoping that the people they trust are not lying or worse.. The GMs will be on hand, usually playing NPCs, to offer help, advice, information and to keep the game running smoothly.

-Alternatively, turning to fiction is often a good idea. If you’re trying to think of ideas you might like to play with, it often helps to check out books and movies based on conspiracy theories and near-future dystopias – though factual knowledge is by no means a necessity; most of what you already know about the real world can be warped and twisted to seem like a conspiracy, or you can take inspiration from the [[:conspiracy:conspiracy|conspiracies]] listed on this site!+Alternatively, turning to fiction is often a good idea.
