“Style” of gaming which underlies setting development
Tuatha Shanachie Corrsorcha, (Gael: the Storytellers’ Clan of the Bright Crane), is an RPG Storytelling Circle founded along the DragonSpine. Gaming in TSC is based on the concept that RPGs are taking the magick of the traditional storyteller’s circle to a deeper level. Rather than passive audience members asking a storyteller to relate some tale of one of their favorite heroes, a group of storytellers comes together to share and weave the tales of their favorite characters with each other in the context of a larger Story. Gaming rules simply provide conventions to facilitate this process in a consistent and coherent fashion which allows all the storytellers to participate equally.
As a Story Guide I am seeking storytellers to join me in relating the tales of Panisadore, an emerging world of heroic fantasy utilizing the GURPS 4th ed. system. (This is a conversion of the setting from DnD 3.5 so some material may still reflect that.) Story concepts encompass the incorporation of a broad range of published variant material regarding character development as this is central to the storytelling style – there is much more emphasis on “role” than “roll."
