PROTAGONIST • 2017rpg

Anders Östman • no link

Find 2 friends to play with. 
Pick a role each. 
The PROTAGONIST says who they are and what their goal is. 
Play to find out what happens. 

The game is narrated out of the perspective of the PROTAGONIST. They describe themselves, the scene and what is in it, but each description must be followed by a question, answered by the BEAST or GUARDIAN. 
    If both have an answer - failure fulfills the BEAST’s answer and success fulfills the GUARDIAN’s. 

When the PROTAGONIST has 0 remaining dice, switch roles to one you’ve not yet played this session. The game ends when the last PROTAGONIST has 0 dice or reached The GOAL.

GUARDIAN or BEAST cannot both use their powers on the same roll.
