Tether is a role-playing game for two players that is played through the process of writing journal entries. Each player will take on the role of a character living in the same rural town, during different time periods.
The two characters are connected by a journal known as The Tether which allows them to write notes to each other through time.
The two players (and characters) will work together to discover the secrets of an ancient being that haunts the town. Players will take turns drawing a card from a deck which is associated with a prompt, then using that prompt to write a journal entry. Over the course of 16 entries, the two will play out a story of suspense, horror, and possibly triumph.
The Tether Journal keeps track of what cards are drawn, the characters, setting, and your journal entries. After playing, you'll have a wonderfully haunting artifact that captures the terror your characters lived through as they discover what is going on in their small town.
