The character is created starting from 5 Key Phrases representing his Arts : knowledge that he has acquired and in which he has trained using time. These Key phrases can be noted on the card of your character by defining which is the phrase that most distinguishes him and the topics in which he is a teacher, a good connoisseur or of whom he is a beginner.
Luke is a farmer who has devoted his time to piloting space ships with a group of rebels who oppose the imperial system. He has trained in the use of mystical arts and combat with lightsabers with a hermit.
For the character of Luke we will define the Key phrases:
"I try to pilot along the route of this star map"
"Target under target, space ship ready to shoot ... Fire!"
"You will not escape the slash of my sword ... On guard!"
"A Disciple of Mystical Arts can talk to you with a lot of wisdom to be able to convince you ..."
"Taking care of this plant I will try to give it new life"
The Key phrases must indicate a clear action and report any objects that are necessary to the action you are going to take (eg a sword master can exclaim "Now I will hit with the fury of my sword!").
Once used the same Key Sentence CAN NOT be repeated before before at least 3 game turns.
The Key Sentence must be plausible in the context and in the dialogue in which it is used, respecting the climate of the scene and the sense of dialogue.
Once the Keyword has been declared, the player can describe the direct consequence of using the pronounced Key Phrase.
Luke finds himself having to escape a trap from one of the Imperial Guards.
Luca (the player who moves Luke) chooses to use the Key phrase "You will not escape the sword of my sword ... On guard!" and as a consequence he describes "with my slash I hit and knock my opponent to the ground." in this way he can escape to his spaceship. Once there he uses the phrase "I try to pilot along the route of this star chart" to get to safety via the spacecraft.
It can be very convenient to write each Key Sentence on a playing card or a sheet to put in front of if rotating 90 degrees after the phrase has been used is at the beginning of each game turn: in this way it will be easier to keep present the Key Phrases available and the number of shifts necessary so that they can be reused.
Each character has at his disposal 5 states of health : Prestante (initial state), tried, painful, dying and defeated. When he suffers damage, he "loses" a state of health, coming to the last state of health is defeated and then forced to leave the scene. Through appropriate treatment interpreted at stake the state of health can be recovered one degree at a time.
Weapons and tools within the game are used to activate Key Phrases. They can be annotated on the card of your character or more conveniently represented with playing cards. Each object requires an action to be put, removed or moved .
Once the characters are prepared, they sit around the table and the Magister introduces the initial scene in which the characters will move. The order of play begins and ends with the Magister following the players clockwise. The Magister in his turn is responsible for describing the game scene and interpreting any "extras" in the story.
During his turn each player has at his disposal three actions that he can use to move his character, move the objects around him or in the inventory and use the key phrases to change the story.
In case of generic tests that are not part of an Art available to the character, the Magister can make a "Fate test" : a simple question is asked and a 10 die is rolled. If the die result is equal to or less than 5 the answer to the question will be positive, otherwise negative.The Magister can increase or decrease the difficulty of proof of a value for each factor in favor or disfavour of the question asked.
The game ends with the resolution of the story in a happy ending or with the defeat of the main characters.
