Tactical vs Narrative Storytelling

Each RPG has a feel and tone when it comes to how its rules play into the way the story is told. D&D, White Wolf, 7th Sea, and Mouse Guard all have very different takes on what a challenge is, how you can overcome it, and what the results are to the story. Some of these systems focus heavily on the narrative, and allow for a broad interpretation of how the rules play out, whereas others strive to describe in detail the interactions and consequences of each action. This week Sara and Rob explore the in’s and out’s of Tactical and Narrative styles of Storytelling.
