Pheon is innovative in that the narrative of the game will be written as it is played. The game is set in Terra Tectus, a virtual world in which two warring factions, Staves and Knaves, struggle to restore balance after the intrusion of Seers, people from the real world. Players will interact with scripted characters, and each player's performance will help shape the storyline. To begin, individual players and teams must first determine whether they are Staves or Knaves, then complete various missions focused on the museum's art collections, exhibitions and programs to earn points and propel the game. Missions exist on three levels-Neophyte, Acolyte and Lamplight Council-through which players must advance, reaching the final stage in which elite players "write" missions for those at lower levels. The ultimate goal is to attain the pheon, which promises to restore balance to Terra Tectus.
