Covidor the Corrupt's Terrible Tower of Thaumaturgy
A downloadable game
Once upon a time, you and Covidor the Cordial were BFFs. But it’s been a minute… Now you’ve heard they go by Covidor the Corrupt, reigning terror from their Tower of Thaumaturgy! You’re determined to find out what happened to your BFF and somehow put a stop to their evil deeds!
Covidor the Corrupt is a short one page roleplaying game designed to be played while hanging out at parties or game conventions. I like to call it a lobby game, as it's great to play in the lobby, seeing old friends and meeting new people!
Players create a simple character and then find someone to be their narrator as they climb the Terrible Tower of Thaumaturgy in search of their old BFF Covidor, who has sadly turned to evil. Each level of the tower only takes a few minutes to play and after every level you seek a new person to be your narrator.
While it's possible to just play this yourself, press-ganging your friends as narrators, it's more fun to take turns narrating and playing. You can print up several copies, handing them out so everyone can play their own version of the story. Even though the starting scenario is the same, everyone's story will turn out different due to the details of their character and the mixture of narrators.
The game requires a minimum of 5 people as each player will require 4 different narrators to get through the 4 levels of the tower. You can play it quickly switching narrators or casually over time as you hang out and socialize. For larger groups and conventions, it can be played virally by handing out copies and narrating the story for everyone who narrates for you!
- 5 or more people
- Enough printed copies of the game to go around
- A pen or pencil
- A coin to flip (or other win/lose mechanics like Roshambo can be used)
Credit: This game's mechanic of pulling in friend's as narrators was inspired by Vincent Baker's The Wizard's Grimore.
