What is Scribe & Dagger and how does it work?
Scribe & Dagger is a project that can be best described as collaborative storytelling via games. It’s something Ben and I are working on together.
It started as a way to not go mad during lockdown and is still going and hopefully it will culminate in a story we can share with you.
The way it works is essentially that we play a collection of D&D campaigns (normally run by Ben) which I then take and write up into a story. Eventually we hope to share these via podcast/audiobook or some other suitable means.
Now it’s important to note a few things:
- We do not play in any Wizards of the Coast setting and you won’t get a story or game that has the feel of their world. Everything that is Wizards belongs to them but we mostly only use the mechanics of the game as a way of structuring our stories, creating an element of randomness and unpredictability or challenge, and or organising what we are doing.
- The world, characters, races and even some spells and mechanics are either our own invention (e.g. some races) or something we’ve given our own spin on (e.g. spells, mechanics).
- Our focus is on telling a good story (and not going mad during quarantine) and to transform this story we have come up with together into something we can share with all of you (and hopefully entertain you with).
What started out as a way to entertain and cheer ourselves up during these mad few years is evolving in to something we want to share with you to hopefully entertain and cheer you up also. So if you like the sound of mad adventures, wizards, magic, friendship, battles and brawls then keep an eye out for our stories and join us in our adventures.
Onwards! To adventure!
