My original intention with this game was to buy two copies of the hardcover full color edition.. One for myself, and one for a friend who was a massive Lovecraft fan. However those plans changed with the death of that friend. So I only ended up buying a copy for myself. Along with two sets of dominos.
This game is unique in its examination and presentation. It is not the usual role playing game. It is a storytelling game. Defined in a way that puts all other storytelling games to shame. As it actually focuses on the structure for properly telling a story.
It doesn't call what you are doing an adventure or a campaign. It simply calls what you and the player are creating a Tale. And really that's what you are doing with it. The player and Narrator working together to create a Tale.
Don't let the small size of this book deceive you. It's absolutely packed with everything you need to start spinning tales of your own.
