The crown prince Astaraveyn of Valdor has been murdered in the midst of peace talks with the Wood Elves of Lustara. All signs point to his crown-seeking uncle, Duke Duvane of Valantia, but no hard evidence has been found.The prince’s body and the high priest and physician Estran Kuala have both gone missing since the murder and rumors of dark magic have started to fly. Has the prince come back from the dead? And if he has, can he stop the looming war and his uncle in time?
Your role will be as an adventurer, brought–of your own will or not–to a mysterious cave in the woods. You’ve been hand-picked by the prince’s advisers to go on a quest to retrieve the Armor Everlasting, rumored to have the power to bring the dead back to life. It rests in the lair of the Dread Golem King Rostafan, who has lived within it, immortal, for centuries. If you succeed in your quest, you may save the prince, with all the rewards that may bring.
Twice Born is a slower game (a move or two a week) designed for experienced writers. Character development is equally important as action, so keep this in mind when you submit. Feel free (if not encouraged) to create your own cards. Backstory is strongly preferred (with whom and why do you align yourself in this political standoff? what do you hope to gain from the prince if he lives? etc.), but not required.
