Communities in the Fifth World take many forms. When you play The Fifth World tabletop roleplaying game, you play either a single tale or an ongoing saga — in either case, the story centers on one, specific community. All of your main characters belong to this community. Each community has a territory made up of the places that it holds dear. Communities understand themselves, first and foremost, as the web of relationships that connect their members, the places in their territory, and the other communities (human and otherwise) that neighbor them.

At the beginning of any tale, you must have a looming question about this community. If you don’t have one, come up with one as a group.
