From the introduction:
The Temple is a low fantasy storytelling game for 3 people. In it, players take on the roles of women within a contra revolutionary group in the walled city of Mhal Khallada.
Each player takes the role of one of these brave women, and by describing their actions together, your group will portray one of their covert missions against the cruel and tyrannical Sar’shir, a caste of sorcerer-priests who have claimed Mhal Khallada as their domain.
Each player will need a standard set of 28 small dominoes, some index cards, and something to write with. Start by each creating a character by following the directions under Fire & Shadow.
The domino sets are used in action resolution.
