What's your dream?
Every story in Dreamchaser is uniquely yours. A memory and an experience that only you, and those lucky enough to play with you, will know. Together, you create a dream to achieve, the characters to pursue that dream, and the moments you want to experience along the way. Set milestones for your characters to dictate what they need to grow. More importantly, set milestones to dictate want you want to experience in the game. Players play characters but also act as an audience in this "choose your adventure" game. Help chisel out your fellow player characters by observing out how they act and learning their intentions. Point it out and watch them evolve. Each story is a tale about growth and learning to belief in yourself. As your character's belief grows, you will find that the universe conspires to connect each of us with our dream. Will you be bold enough to pursue it? Play your part, pursue a dream, and believe!
This is our story
You are not alone in this. Dreamchaser plays best with three or four players. Together, pitch ideas for what you want to achieve in a game. Aim for something fun, something epic, or something personal. Make it an experience! Players play the most crucial or compelling roles. Tie your personal milestones together to create a road map to our goal, the dream. Players are rewarded for accomplishing their milestones as well as those of their friends, as each one brings you closer to the final goal. Help your friends by pointing out how they play their characters and watch their characters improve. Provide a framework for the Game Master to work with and the setting to adhere to, not the other way around. Create a destiny together and achieve it!
