Create a Character, Select a Class, an Area and Tell us Your Story!
Board games are all about creating unique experiences for the people who play them. Everyone has gone through some epic, funny or even frustrating moments when playing a board game or an RPG. Afterwards, these come into stories that we can share some night at the “Inn”.
Without further ado, we would like to introduce our new section, “Stories of the Inn”.
In the “Land of Board Game Stories”, the common ground where everyone can enjoy themselves playing all kind of board games and drinking their favorite beverages, is the legendary “DragonPhoenix Inn”! This is where the Innkeeper witnesses everything always pays attention to your stories and always has some of his own to share with you.
In this section, you can share your own personal story of a gaming experience. Some may have made you laugh, get a game under your radar or teach you a valuable lesson about gaming and respecting the people you play with. Others might be just a narration of heroic deeds, weird situations or maybe from when the world ended!
Let’s take a brief look at the available story categories:
- Epic: The moment that gives you the chills when recalling it. Being either slaying the Dragon with your last roll or sacrificing yourself for your teammates with a cool pose. Etc.
- Funny: A funny moment, event or a game that resulted in everyone across the table laughing etc.
- Boring: A gameplay that was just boring, plain etc.
- Disappointing: Your hype was strong in this one but it ended disappointing you or a certain player behavior etc.
- Frustrating: A game that wouldn`t end, endless downtime or just everyone focuses their attacks on you! etc.
- Intense: When you have some extra VP’s up on your sleeve or getting ready for that winning roll and your heart is about to explode! etc.
- Irritating: This gameplay or player actions just gets on your nerve! etc.
- Weird: Just a weird gaming experience, surprise us!
- Horror: An experience that gave you the chills! Either from the game’s theme or thanks to your sweet opponents. Etc.
- Fantasy: Brave knights with magical swords, evil wizards, dragons, princesses in need of rescue and the occasional ghoul and goblin all fall under this category.
- Sci-Fi: Spacefaring vessels, multi-limbed aliens, blasters and tractor beams paired with the deadly or cynical serving android fit perfectly in a futuristic universe.
- Horror: Supernatural or mundane this stories will frighten, disgust and freeze the blood of even the most hardened reader, from the terrors that lurk in the city sewers to the killing rampage of a serial killer.
- Cyberpunk: Hackers, Phreakers and other fringe elements pitted against the corrupted Mega-Corps both in the real world and in the realm of Cyber-space.
- Post Apocalyptic: The End is not just near , it has come and passed and now we’re left to deal with the leftovers. Society as we know it has collapsed and what’s left of Humanity fights for survival.
- Humor and Satire: Bad things are funny when they happen to someone else and sometimes humor is what we need to get through a rough day so give a good laugh by getting your character a few nasty surprises.
