2020 Game of the Year (Indie Groundbreakers Award)
Companions’ Tale is a map-making storytelling game where you tell the tale of an epic hero, righting wrongs and saving kingdoms. The hero acts, and leaves others to tell the tale. You are those others: the hero’s closest companions. Whose version of the heroic tale will become canon, and whose will be a footnote to history?
Players use evocative world-building rules, a deck of inspirational themes and art, and a series of rotating roles for shared storytelling. Together, you’ll build the history and culture of the realm, fill in a rich and changing map, and reveal your companions’ tales.
Each game results in a new story, with new themes and companions. With eleven additional variants, there are even more ways to take the game in new directions.
