Ryan Laukat of Red Raven Games announces a sequel to the story-driven “civ-building”, or actually town-building, game, Above and Below entitled Near and Far. In Near and Far, up to four friends are searching for the Last Ruin, which purportedly contains a legendary artifact that grants their greatest heart’s desire. In the game, players will be recruiting adventurers, hunting for treasure, and competing to be the most “storied traveler”. Players will need to manage their food and equipment to survive the long journey, and sometimes special encounters will befall a player, in which another player will then read from the Book of Encounters. Players will read over ten game sessions to reach the end of the story.
