The Player and the Pentacle - Pre-Order Kindle Edition Now!
Folklore is a genre that at its heart, is all about intimacy and immediacy. It’s not about looking outside ourselves, rather, it's about looking within. By encouraging players to take part in the ever-growing world of folklore, we can connect them to ideas that previously, they may have never before considered, helping them to empathize with people and causes they’ve opposed, ignored or been oblivious to in the past.
In his premier book, Narrative Designer and Transmedia storyteller Nick Jones shares his personal narrative design model, developed through PhD research in collaboration with other experts in the field.
The Player and the Pentacle offers a new way of considering world building in your games, but more importantly, how to create a player character that your audience can, in Nick’s words: cohabitate with. When implemented, this “cohabitation” will lead to greater levels of player immersion, and increased longevity for your creative IP.
