This exercise focuses on quickly creating relationships and explorations as part of the STEPS narrative tool. The player on the left turns to the other player and indicates a relationship and exploration of that relationship. The leader should encourage the player to not ask a question but make a clear statement.
The line of players are tasked with telling a story together. The leader will pick one player to start the story. As long as they are being pointed at (conducted) the player will continue to tell the story. Without warning the leader will switch to another player and that player will seamlessly pick up the story.
The players start into their scene as they would any other. When the ‘advance’ is called out the players focus solely on the story, and advance the story. When ‘expand’ is called out the players solely explore their environment.
