Warning: this expansion needs the Core Game to be played.
The Kingkiller ChronicleTM, by Patrick Rothfuss, is a story within a story. Over the
course of The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear, a narrative unfolds as the protagonist tells the tale of his life. These books were a key source of inspiration for Call to Adventure, a game about character development and storytelling. So it’s fitting that the game’s first expansion takes you to the Four Corners, and gives you the chance to create a story in the world of Kvothe, Denna, Auri, and the Chandrian.
Call to Adventure: The Name of the Wind is your chance to become a Cealdish trader, an Edema Ruh trouper, or a Vintish noble. Perhaps you’ll survive the streets of Tarbean, attend The University, venture into the Fae, or earn your Pipes. For fans of the books, this is a chance to follow in Kvothe’s footsteps… or choose a different path. For anyone who loves heroic fantasy, this set includes new character options and introduces Naming, a system of magic driven by deep understanding.
How to Play?
Call to Adventure: The Name of the Wind does not change the core objective of the game. Your goal is still to become the hero with the greatest Destiny. This expansion includes new cards that change the game’s theme and setting to match the Heroic Fantasy world of the Kingkiller ChronicleTM. It also adds one new rule: Naming.
When failing a challenge, you can try to learn a Name. If you succeed, this new knowledge will help you in your future adventures concerned by the mastered element: Wind, Fire or Iron.
