Anyone who was a contributor in a previous project or who wants to follow the Exquisite Corpse Dungeon project is invited to check it out:

Mastodon isn't the most popular option for +exiles (and I don't even know if that's the best hashtag) But I'm looking to link with more of those folks who have set up over here.
