Campfire and Queen
All of you have a reason for running away from court and the Queen. Some of you are on the run from an arranged marriage, some of you hate your old life and want to start anew, some of you just have a wanderlust. You are gathered around a campfire to tell stories to help pass the evening away but what will those stories reveal about you and the question that everyone will eventually faceÖ would you protect the Queen?
Campfire and Queen is a storytelling freeform inspired by the card game For the Queen (Evil Hat Productions). You are from a high magic fantasy Kingdom with a matriarchal monarchy. All of you have lived at court with the Queen but have now run away and are in disguise, travelling with a merchant caravan to your next destination. This is the first big caravan of the season as the mountain pass has been closed for three months so this is the first time you have been able to leave the court. You look around the campfire and several people here seem familiar, but you donít know where from. Maybe it is your imagination playing tricks on you. The Merchant invites everyone to tell a couple of stories to help pass the time and you have decided to join in.
The game will run over two nights and a day. During the first night everyone will tell a story based on story seeds that will be on your character sheet. There will then be the day period where characters can discuss the stories, maybe answer a question from their character sheet and try to work out where they know the other characters from. There will then be the next night where another story can be told but this one can be from a seed from your character sheet or any other story that characters want to tell. The game will end with The Merchant announcing that the kingdom and the Queen are under attack and your character will have to decide: will you go back to save her?
Character sheets are short and will contain information about your past life and why you are running and where you are going to. They will also contain a few questions that you may want to answer during the game and use as interaction prompts. They will also contain story seeds that you may want to use during the game to tell your campfire stories. I will also provide a mythology for the world that you could use to inform your story telling
