The Adventures of Victoria and Balthazar: An experiment in viral story telling

Someone turned me on to this little micro-wiki editor, TiddlyWiki. When i started playing with it i saw that it could be a really neat device for an idea i had for a story. The editor and story all live inside this html file. Download it (that's a save page as action), open it in a browser, like firefox, and notice the links on the right hand side of the page. Click on The Adventures of Victoria and Balthazar and start having fun. If you feel so inclined, add or change some of the entries and pass it on to a friend or two -- but please also forward or cc me what you've done. Oh, to edit you can sign with the user name VictoriaNBalthazar.

i shouldn't say anything more, but here's a hint: if you follow the last bold link of each "tiddler", starting from The Adventures ..., you'll find a narrative thread.
