Storyteller A Campfire Narrative Game - Engels
Camping! S'mores! Spooky stories! Being too scared to go pee at 3 am in the deep abyss that consumes the forest each night when the terrors arise and feast upon those who stray too far from the glowing embers of the dying fire.
STORYTELLER is an ad-lib campfire narrative game of monsters, horror and mystery. Create engaging stories in the wilderness with just camping equipment.
Play can happen either in Game Mode as a traditional roleplaying game, or in Story Mode, to tell an interactive story to an audience.
Set-up involves filling out a Story Prompt that consists of eight fill-in-the-blanks. Players can optionally fill out a Character Profile to define individual characters. This rulebook provides a myriad of options for each, or you can come up with your own.
Once you have played several times, you can sit around the campfire with nothing but your imagination and camping equipment to tell tall tales together. Narrating is easy enough that everyone can take a turn.
STORYTELLER is designed as a horror game that depicts gruesome scenes, violence against adults, children, and animals, and explores dark places in the human psyche. Before play, talk with your group about anything that would be too uncomfortable.
The X-Card is a mechanic to signal when someone is uncomfortable. At the campfire, this can be a stone that is held up, throwing an acorn into the fire, or placing both hands on their head.
Talk with your players about what your signal will be. If at any time someone uses an X-Card, simply fade to black and move on. No questions asked. After the story, remember to check on the health of someone who has played an X-Card.
Parents:Please review the contents of this book. While this is an excellent game to play with teenagers, some options are not appropriate for all age levels. This game is designed for ages 13+ but it can be adapted for any age group.
