Tonight we played Companions’ Tale by Laura Simpson. We told a tale of the conflict-filled land of Orselia, where the threat of dragon invasion hangs in the air and aspiring magicians seek enlightenment through transformation into undead mummies. Through the eyes of his companions, we learned of a mysterious Hero who would wield his magical power to defend us. But who is the Hero, really? It depends whether you’re talking to the entrepreneurial Mentor, the devoted Protege, the tale-spinning Bard, or the island-defending Outsider.
