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.
Storyteller is a horror game that invites 3-8 players to craft stories of monsters and their unsuspecting victims. Rules-lite and stat-less, Storyteller is intended to be easy to learn and easy to conclude after play sessions. It’s not GM-less, but it is explicitly collaborative in a way that most traditional RPGs are not. Rather than evoking the feeling of telling spooky stories around the fire at summer camp, Storyteller could easily be played around a real campfire, by actual campers and counselors.
A note from Jen: want a little inspiration? Of course you do. My “favorite horror story” is a seven year old Reddit NoSleep thread about unsettling happenings in National Parks. Oh yeah, and did you know a bunch of episodes of the old kids’ show Are You Afraid of the Dark are available on YouTube?
