The Mentor will tell you that the Hero learned sorcery when they visited the High Hills together, in lands where maps are scarcely drawn.
The Lover will tell you that the Hero actually grew up in the High Hills, and knew by heart the solemn and slow songs of its people.

Companion's Tale is a story and mapmaking game. In it, players take on the roles of Companions and tell the story of the Hero. The Hero is never actually played, but is viewed only through the opinionated lenses of the Companions that the Players control.
Over the course of a prologue, 3 acts and an epilogue, a world will be created and a story will be told... but whose narrative will last? Will all of them?
Companion's Tale is a game that was on Kickstarter a year and a half ago or so and I just got my copy. Upon reading it, I realized it would translate quite nicely to a PbP format, so I want to try it out!
