Words and labels define how you perceive the world. They are the keystone to understanding the difference between you and I. Parselings takes place in a world like our own, but with a simple difference – to some creatures, words have power. Parsecytes, swarms of ravenous ink-like parasitic organisms, have emerged into the world causing irreversible changes to society and our ecosystem.
You will step into the role of a human being infected by one of these parasites. At a glance, the infected are almost physically indiscernible from most other humans, save for the labels on their skin and the ink mixed into their blood. However, when brought together in groups, these individuals can be greater than the sum of their parts. The infected hosts can use their tattoos to form phrases to sculpt the world to their desires. How will you and your companions use this power?
