The young heir to the kingdom has wandered of into the woods. Along with them is a group of wizards' familiars to keep them safe. But there's nefarious forces at play in those woods. Will the child stay safe? That's where players find themselves in Familiar Tales, a new story crafting game coming from Plaid Hat Games.
From the announcement:
Sinister forces have cast down the royal family of a far-off kingdom, and now the future of the royal line rests entirely upon a wee infant. Her only protectors are a band of wizard’s familiars who have disappeared into the wilderness with their young charge. A sorcerous usurper’s fl hand stretches wide across the land — how can simple familiars save a child from such evil?
Familiar Tales is an exciting narrative game where players take on the roles of a wizard’s familiars, entrusted with saving and raising a displaced princess. They must keep her safe from the evil forces that would see her dead, but when it comes to children, it is not enough to merely survive! The familiars know that every choice they make will affect the young one in their care. If they are victorious and the throne is reclaimed, what kind of woman will sit upon it?
