Opening Ulysses is part RPG, part MOOC, and all about exploring the possibilities of Ulysses, combining imagination with reading and understanding the text itself.
You don't have to be an expert to play (though experts are welcome, too).
We plan to have new role-playing threads, based on each of the episodes (in order) at a pace of about one per month. Readers new to Ulysses are encouraged to read along with us.

Yes, well, I am . . . present as it were for questioning. Ask me.
Feel free to ask Mr Bloom any questions you may have and, if you wish, to slip into his character to answer.

So Mr Bloom, what are your top 5 favourite organ meats?
I like a thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, and most of all, I like grilled mutton kidneys which give to the palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.
If you would let me add a number six, fried hencods’ roes are fine as well.
So Mr Bloom, you seem concerned with the insides of things? But not their outsides?
Outsides are fine, too. Only how it works. I want to see. Inside.

How do you feel about the way I told your story?
*as Bloom* I must admit I am still trying, attempting to read it.
