About the adventure

It has been months since the High Queen has heard from her brother. Months since he left with his armies of centaurs and gryphons and talking badgers and one great white unicorn, off to stave off the northern giants. The rumblings on the borderlands were that the giants had united under some kind of king in red armor. So the High King had assembled his troops and rode off, kissing her on the cheek. "No more than a fortnight," he promised with a grin. Four and a half such fortnights later, and her brother Edmund and sister Susan still away to the south, High Queen Lucy has decided to find out what has befallen her eldest brother.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Bring focus and creativity! General knowledge of the works of C.S. Lewis or fantasy and fairy tale lore is encouraged but not necessary. Aim to play in a quiet spot, with a clear, well-working microphone.

What I provide

Players will receive concept art and lore, as well as gameplay details, safety information and character creation guides before the game begins. Digital character sheets and a dice roller will also be provided but always open to players bringing their own materials.

Gameplay details

My games are narrative based, with the action taking place in theater of the mind but with plenty of handouts and visual clues. Players can expect a document that outlines themes, genre, gameplay and safety, as well as a discussion about those elements during a session zero.

How will character creation work

Characters will be created together. They will all be the same mechanical power level but may have any level of narrative experience - old or young, beginner or veteran. Character concepts will be either fairy tale creatures or isekai'd children from our own world.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
