TIME PASSES, CARRYING the city forward into a world of war and gluten-free diets.

The bookstore at the intersection of Lincoln and New Hope, formerly Lincoln and 8th, is under new management. Its outer veneer gleams like a start-up, all rounded corners and flat design. It’s called something different now, something new-age and pretentious, like Last Quill & Testament or Once Written, Twice Shy or even, perhaps, Helvetica. Everyone just calls it The Bookstore, same as they always have. Upon the heavy glass door, nestled beneath an overgrowth of flyers, a rustic sign reads: OPEN.

Inside, there are no shallow trappings of modernity, no endorsements for yoga or artisan toast. The interior of the bookstore is sunbeams and dust, is muffled footsteps on weathered hardwood, is pages upon pages, well-loved and well-turned. The woman behind the counter bears more piercings and less birthdays than her predecessor, but it’s with the same tender reverence that she adjusts each title in the window to face the sun.

Time passes. The city changes. The bookstore changes, too, but mostly it stays the same.

"So what you're saying is, I'm your brand of heroin?" I teased, trying to lighten the mood.

He smiled swiftly, seeming to appreciate my effort. "Yes, you are exactly my brand of heroin."
SAMPLE PLAYER

About three things I was absolutely positive. First, this is a ROLE PM. Second, there is a part of this PM-and I didn’t know how long that part might be-that CONTAINS RELEVANT INFORMATION ABOUT PLAYERS' ROLES. And third, this is unconditionally and irrevocably not an actual in-game PM.
