Aaron Bell

The professor

Professor Bell’s favorite game has always been chess. When he was young, he and his siblings would play all the time. As he grew older a lot of the people around him stopped playing, but he’s never stopped. Now he applies the rules of chess to every day life.

After the disappearance of his brightest student, it’s become clear that someone’s breaking the rules and he’d very much like to know who’s breaking them, and why they’re being broken.

Essence Deck

Play style

The Essence attribute deck is made of up of events, actions and the unchanging elements of life. The creatures of the dark forest, the unmovable mountain, or the simple virus.

It plays by a very specific set of rules, and your opponent will be playing by those rules as well. Will the card your opponent draws next turn be their card, or will it be yours? You’ll be the one to decide.

What is an ARG?

An ARG (Alternate Reality Game) is an interactive networked narrative that uses the real world as a platform and employs multi-media storytelling to deliver a story that may be altered by a community of players’ actions.

How does that break down with Dinn? Simple, each card is a puzzle or part of a puzzle.

Solve the puzzle and it will eventually lead you to a reward, and another chapter in the story.

From there, you’re welcome to share it with the community, or keep it a secret until the next person comes along!

How do I play the ARG?

Playing is simple. Simply find any Dinn card, and take a close look. Is there something in the art? In the code? In the name? If there is, do some digging and you might find yourself on a website where one of our characters has left something for you.

Do I need to buy cards to play?

No, you don’t need to own any Dinn cards to play the ARG. However, having the cards can help you as you hunt for clues, they are not necessary.
