From the introduction:
With this booklet, Treasures & Traps becomes a storytelling game set in the realm of Arb, a humorous fable and fantasy world. Here, everyone has a chance to add to the plot! Up to four players are in the role of Lead Characters who are called to a heroic—if not a totally whacked out—quest. One other player will be the Story Master, who plays the role of narrator, director, supporting cast, and every secondary character in the story. The Story Master is working with the Leads to experience the tale that unfolds.
The Treasures & Traps cards are used as prompts to move the story forward and add creative spark, as well as to help determine the chance of success in the wild world of Arb. This addition to the world of Treasures & Traps is ideal for those learning role-playing games, those with limited time, or as a creativity prompt to evolve a story concept. So grab your Treasures & Traps cards, some friends, and a wild imagination, because everything else needed to enjoy an adventure is provided within!
