When playing The Silver Road, you and some friends can get together and tell stories.
This is an unashamedly minimalist story telling roleplaying game. It has a simple core mechanic that is applied any time there’s uncertainty about what happens next.
For the most part in this game you’ll succeed in whatever you narrate your character is doing.
Even where you don’t succeed, if your character is good at doing the thing you’re attempting, you’ll succeed on your next turn.
Any obstacles you face in the game will have a chance to provide a consequence for your characters, which adds to the story, and then they’re overcome, and the story moves on.
