Welcome to Mote! We are so happy you found us. We want you to start getting the most out of Mote right away, which is why we created this guide.
What is Mote?

Mote is in beta
Here’s what that means:
You must be 18 or older to play.
We think Mote has the potential to be fun for players and creators of all ages, but for now this is the safest way for us to operate Mote. We’re just two people working on a passion project, without lawyers or investors.
Not all features are available.
We are adding features to the beta all the time, but many are not available yet. Features may come and go, and the user interface may change.
Support is limited.
We aren’t able to provide full-time support for Mote, so it may take us a while to respond to your questions and problems.
Mote won’t always be free.
Our goal is to make Mote a product worth paying for, with affordable plans on par with other online entertainment services.
What you’ll need
A connection to the internet
Mote is real-time and collaboritive, which means you’ll need a reliable connection to the internet to play.
A desktop or laptop computer (recommended)
Mote involves a lot of reading, and a lot of typing. It’s easier to do these two things at the same time using a desktop or laptop computer.
While the platform works on mobile devices, it hasn’t been optimized for use on tablets or phones.
An up-to-date browser
Make sure the browser you’re using meets our requirements.
Telling your first story on Mote
Mote has been designed to be easy to play and fun to master. Playing on Mote is a lot like playing in a jazz band with your friends, except instead of music you’re using language, and instead of instruments you’re using your keyboard.
Telling your first story
Have fun and play pretend
Mote requires only a love of language and an imagination. Taking risks and courting mistakes is the only way to really learn how the system works. The more stories you tell, the more epic and involved they will become, until you’re effortlessly building immersive worlds and experiences out of text with your friends.
