Telling stories isn’t easy. It takes a lot of time to finely craft a plot, see through the details of supporting characters, and make sure it all works together. Then you’ve got Fate, who has to make up the stories for everybody. That’s the toughest job of all. And she could use a break for a while. As such, she’s partitioned out her work onto the Muses. So now they must create the story for everything in creation. But the Muses are a jealous group, not wanting another’s batch of stories to be better than theirs. So while working to write their own lores, they are sabotaging their opponent’s. That’s the story behind Lore: Fate’s Challenge, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players take on the role of one of the Muses. The object is to collect together Lore and Sigil cards that match (either symbols or colors or something between them) in order to create a story for them. You have to watch out, though, as opponents can play Curses on you, which can keep you from advancing a story you’re working on. You can get rid of those via Purify cards, though. The rules for the game are rather simple, but offer a bit of strategic depth, depending on how you choose to advance the Lore of the characters.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re about halfway to their goal with still 18 days left on the clock.
