It was the cover art that caught my attention for the Kickstarter pitch for Tale. I wasn’t the only one as the game has funded and, at the time of writing, has a week left on the clock to collect more pledges. You can follow the progress of the campaign here.
A pledge of 100 Norwegian Krone will get you the core rules as a PDF and an expansion called The Academy of Merelin. That’s about £9 or US $11.50.
If you want the core rules in paperback, then you need to increase your pledge to 500 NOK (about £45).
Tale is upfront about its inspiration. Tale came about thanks to creator Hans Olav and his brother enjoying Tremulus: a storytelling game of Lovecraftian horror. I think we see some of that in Tale’s art.
