From the Introduction:
You and your companions have traveled across long distances
and faced many trials to come to this point, in the hope that you
will be heard by the one person who can grant you what you need.
Now you stand at the gate to the Monarch’s throne room, seeking
entrance and an audience.
All that stands in your way is the Gate Guard, who extends their
hand and demands that you leave your weapons at the door.
At the Monarch’s Gate is a single-session, GM-lite storytelling game that can be
played in the space of two to three hours. You will tell the histories of the
weapons you carry as you surrender them, one by one, before entering the
presence of a powerful ruler. Use a combination of dice and Tarot cards to build
your reputation while revealing your true intentions—or keeping them hidden.
