How to Play TriadCity
The TriadCity Players' Guide
Etiquette: use the 'afk' command
If you're going to be away from your keyboard for any length of time,
command. This lets other characters know that you're not there to
ask, or page, so that they don't sit wait for you to respond.
In TriadCity, it's considered
very rude to leave your keyboard without
setting the afk flag. Please do.

"Burroughs's zone, or interzone, is a vast, ramshackle structure in which all the world's architectural styles are are fused and all its races and cultures mingle .... Sometimes it is located in Latin America or North Africa, sometimes (as in The Ticket That Exploded, 1962) on another planet, sometimes (as in Cities of the Red Night,, 1981) in a lost civilization of the distant past. By contrast, Alasdair Gray's zone (in Lanark, 1981), a space of paradox modeled on the Wonderland and Looking-glass worlds of the Alice books, has been displaced to the ambiguous no man's land between cities .... Pynchon's zone is paradignmatic for the heterotopian space of postmodernist writing .... Here ... a large number of fragmentary possible worlds coexist in an impossible space which is associated with occupied Germany, but which is in fact located nowhere but in the written text itself." — Brian McHale, Postmodernist Fiction ( info)
