Tableau Booklet Storysets 📖
Tableau Booklet Storysets 📖 supplement Tableau stories with additional rules and story Elements, but you’ll require a Tableau Playset or the Tableau Core Rules to play. Storysets 📖 also are easy to incorporate into most Belonging Outside Belonging style storygames, and are adaptable for use with many other styles of tabletop role-playing games.
Storysets 📖 don’t possess the same flexibility as a Tableau card-based Playset 🎞. Instead, they are designed for a similar style of play using small, card-sized Booklets easily printed on US Letter 8½’‘x11’‘ paper. To utilize a Storyset 📖 just unfold the Booklet to a particular Story 📖 Element page and have a storyteller Take Up that Booklet for control that Element just like they would a card with a Story 📖 Element.
Assembly: Print booklet, single-sided. Fold long way (11’’) with text out, then unfold. Fold short way (8-½’’) with text out, then unfold. Fold short sides ¼ and ¾ inward with text in. Cut center guide, stopping at the ¼ & ¾ folds—don’t cut to page‘s end. Refold as per image. Ensure cover is on front. Tighten creases.
