Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 18

They headed east across the top of Europe rather than cut back through Arabia. Kamal figured that his new companions would be too obviously recognised as ‘crusaders’ in his homeland.

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 17

Kamal was disorientated by his experience and wandered for days amid the markets of Paris. Death was everywhere: the plague had returned. Corpses lay in the streets. He was at turns horrified and numbed. Eventually he found himself in a park of some sort. At one time it had been a thing of beauty tended […]

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 16

Kamal found himself beside a canal outside of Paris. He blinked and tried to orient himself. He felt dizzy and out-of-body.

As my tools for developing new directions in freeform story games have evolved I’ve continued to look for richer outcomes with simpler mechanisms. Looking back I see that the last version of my variable result table was quite a complex one that […]

It popped back into my head as I was reviewing the next candidates for solo story telling exercises. As I read through those epic events questions started to arise in my mind. What happened next?
