The Fifth World

Roleplaying Game

Encounters

The game plays out in a series of rounds, in which you and your friends take turns setting encounters between your character and someone else — the Other. From encounter to encounter your role will shift. Sometimes you’ll play your character, and sometimes you’ll play the Other. Sometimes you’ll act as the audience, and sometimes you’ll answer questions and establish the truth about the world and the story. Throughout, you’ll use ritual phrases to affect the story.
