Description Edit | History

Subtitle: Historias de la Sociedad de Cuentacuentos

From the publisher's website:

¿Son los cuentos sólo cuentos, o visiones de una realidad aún mayor? ¿Podría ser que todo lo narrado en las historias de antaño esconda una verdad terrible y maravillosa al mismo tiempo? ¿Quieres creer, o dejarás de lado los hechos de los que has sido testigo?

Seres de cuento, criaturas de leyenda y objetos mágicos están entre nosotros. Y tú vas a su encuentro. La Sociedad de Cuentacuentos necesita damas y caballeros de inusual talento para que les ayuden a encarar esa parte de la realidad que la gente común no se atreve a vislumbrar. Cuando se apaga la luz de gas, ¿quién te mira desde las sombras...?

Fábulas es un juego de rol para dos o más jugadores que recrea las aventuras de la Sociedad de Cuentacuentos, osados investigadores y sabios estudiosos de lo irreal y lo mítico, mayormente ignorado por la Humanidad pero transmitido popularmente como supersticiones arcaicas o cuentos de niños.

Trabajando en secreto tras su mascarada de editorial de cuentos y folklore, los agentes de la Sociedad investigan en las sombras del mundo mortal sucesos de índole extraña buscando rastros de actividad sobrenatural, para aprender y mediar en el caso de que sea posible. O para combatir el fuego con el fuego, si no queda otra alternativa.

Ambientado el siglo XIX, Fábulas sitúa a los jugadores entre el gris sucio del mundo real y el brillo cegador de la originalidad irreal de criaturas y ambientes propios de los cuentos de hadas. Pero al contrario que en la mayoría de los cuentos, no siempre hay un final feliz.

Basado en el sistema Fudge.

English translation from the author:

Fables: exploits of the Storytellers Society

Are fables just fables, or views of a greater reality? Could it be that anything narrated in the stories of old hid a terrible and marvellous truth, at the same time? Do you want to believe, or will you ignore the events you've witnessed?

Fairy tales beings, legendary creatures and magic objects are amongst us. And you look for them purposefully. The Storytellers Society needs ladies and gentlemen of unusual talents to help them face that part of reality the common man doesn't dare to glimpse. When the gaslight goes out, who looks at you from the shadows...?

Fables is a roleplaying game for two or more players which recreates the adventures of the Storytellers Society, daring investigators and wise studious of the unreal and the mythical, mainly ignored by Humanity but transmited through folklore as archaic superstitions or children stories.

Working with secrecy behind their masquerade as an editorial of fairy tales and folklore, the agents of the Society investigate in the corners of the mortal world all kind of strange events looking for traces of supernatural activity, to learn and mediate if possible. Or to fight fire with fire, if there is not alternative.

Set in the 19th century, Fables places the players between the dirty grey of the real world and the blinding shine of the unreal originality of creatures and environments characteristic of the fairy tales. But unlike most fairy tales, there isn't always a happy end.

Based on the Fudge system.
