Storium is a recently funded Kickstarter now in beta. I'll quote text from their site to illustrate its function:

Storium is a web-based online game that you play with friends. It works by turning writing into a multiplayer game. With just your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you can choose from a library of imaginary worlds to play in, or build your own. You create your story’s characters and decide what happens to them. You can tell any kind of story with Storium. The only limit is your imagination.

Storium uses familiar game concepts inspired by card games, role-playing games, video games, and more. In each Storium game, one player is the narrator, and everyone else takes on the role of a character in the story. The narrator creates dramatic challenges for the other players to overcome. In doing so, they move the story forward in a new direction. Everyone gets their turn at telling the story.

As we PBeM/PbP and Roll20 questions are on topic, I figured to get a ruling out of the way whether questions about Storium (or the worlds in Storium) are on-topic, as I figure it will come up.

Definitely!

We already have several questions, and none of them have had a thought towards closure. It's an RPG site and system that lines up with table top/PbP RPGs very well. It's the same audience.

The chat regulars even have a few games going on.

Yes

While Storium doesn't bill itself as a traditional "RPG" in my experience as a Storium user/player its similarities to existing systems like Fate make it a good fit for our site. The experience of playing Storium is very much one of playing an RPG. We've already had a few questions which I believe worked well for our format and seem to be well received enough that I believe Storium should be allowed on the site.

    \$\begingroup\$ As a sidenote: No matter what they bill themselves as, Storium is most definitely an RPG. I mean, the second paragraph quoted above can be used as a definition of RPG. \$\endgroup\$ – MrLemon Jul 14 '14 at 8:51
