Drawn to the stars, we looked above. We gathered round and shared tales - tales of heroism and love, invention and trickery. We now come together again to tell new stories. We look to the stars and trace lines between them, carving out shapes. New characters, adventures, and betrayals come to life. The Teller pulls us close through words, and tells a new story.


Told by Starlight is a no prep, GM-less game for 2-6 players. It is about drawing constellations and telling the tales behind them. Using a standard deck of playing cards to generate themes and prompts, you will create an entire mythology, and all the characters within. Make a physical star chart and fill it with constellations as you tell tales. Use character archetypes inspired by genuine mythology to drive the drama in your stories as you create a pantheon with the people at your table.
