Good morning internet, I'm Master Bryss. Welcome to my corner of the world, the Index Indicum. All of our operators are busy at the moment. Please select a tab based on why you've come to me.
- 1: You're here for Bryssverse
If you are reading this introduction, you have taken your first tentative step into what I call Bryssverse.
Bryssverse is a series of interlinking creative works that tell of the trials and tribulations of people bearing the surname Bryss, their associates, and those who document their exploits (like me!). The framing device for most of these adventures is a good old-fashioned Nuzlocke run, sometimes plain, sometimes with horrible rules. I'm also a big fan of what I call rum hakes (or just hakes), so hack runs are a big part of it too. It's... not very serious. At all. Except sometimes. But mostly not. But it is long-running and complex when taken as an overall picture!
When I'm not weaving the single most complicated narrative I can form, I also do the odd Let's Play, video run, audio run, roleplaying campaign set in a boarding school for petting zoo people... basically, pies. Many. Fingers? Also many. I like to do a bit of everything, so long as I keep innovating.
The Index is a repository for the entire Bryssverse in all its forms and contains (or will contain) links to all my creative projects.
From this landing post, you can (or will be able to) access the following locations:
The Index Novum Bryssi: The run index for the ReMastered Era of Bryssverse
The original Index Indicum: The run index for the Zeta Era of Bryssverse
The Oxford English Bryctionary: Confused by an in-joke? Welcome to the club but also read this I guess?
-Maybe some other ones who knows-
- 2: You're here for the single most popular thing I've ever done
If you're looking for the most popular thing I've ever done, that would be Pokemon Dark Violet: A Social Experiment, an ARG that ran in 2014 and 2018 based on a hack run I did. It's technically canon to Bryssverse but is entirely self-contained for reasons explained in the OP.
- 3: You're here for Let's Plays and plotless runs
Oh, a list of 'read this if you want something Bryss has done that isn't complicated!' I made one of those!
Alternatively, try The Dark Side and its sequel Smoke on the Water, which are basically self-contained aside from a few things. Smoke on the Water in particular has me trying to write a run using only the 1000 most common words of the English language, which is a challenge in and of itself, especially where proper nouns get involved.
I also do a podcast, appropriately titled Podcastlocke!, with my wife Escape and our friend NagsBags. There are plans to do multiple Seasons, but the link is to the first one, where we play two type monolockes of Black and White 2!
