The Fifth World


If you meet with a more-or-less stable group of friends regularly, you can continue the story of your family in the Fifth World, even over several generations. We call this sort of ongoing, intergenerational story a saga.

Getting the same group of people together on a regular basis can pose challenges, but in a saga each player will likely develop a cast of characters at once. This creates a shifting spotlight, so if one or two of your friends can’t make it for a session, you should have no trouble continuing on with a story that focuses on the characters played by the people who can make it.
