A (Sample) Tabletop for Two Narrative Adventure
First, I want to say thank you to friends of the blog and you, our amazing readers, for sending in your thoughts about Journey to Vestige Lake and for your offers of support and encouragement! 💚

A Second Narrative Sample!
Based on some of the amazingly helpful feedback we’ve already received (you know who you are!), I wanted to share a second example of what future content from us could look like. This project is a little more fleshed out than Journey to Vestige Lake, though I imagined it as a series of either physical or digital letters that GMs would receive (or print off and share with their player) but the idea is to spark a campaign arc from the story pieces provided.
This narrative adventure is The Last Dragon of Sanctuary, and it’s actually set in Eldura, the world that came before Azuria.
I originally thought this story would be a novella, and there is a companion novella that coincides with this story, but for the time being, we’ll focus on it as a narrative adventure.
In its final form, The Last Dragon would be a series of eight sets of letters and documents that, at the end, set the PC and their GM on an adventure.

For the physical version of The Last Dragon, the pieces look like this:
Jonathan and I are both very tactile gamers, so something like this really appeals to us. And I can say, too, that he loves this story and the accompanying novella, Stormborn (which is forthcoming later this year).
But again, what matters most to us is creating content that you love and that you find helpful at your gaming table.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about The Last Dragon! Are you curious to see more? Would this help you as a Storyteller/GM set the stage for your player?
Players, would you like receiving these letters and embarking on an adventure from there? Let us know in the comments below or send me a message!
