You and your partner stand against a terrible Crisis.
It shouldn’t have been anything new; the two of you had surpassed many hardships before, and forged a bond stronger than steel together. Together, you were supposed to be powerful.
But this time, things went horribly wrong. Even with your strengths combined, your last battle was certain to end in your defeat.
And so, your partner made the ultimate sacrifice: they sent you back to safety, while they stayed to fight the Crisis alone.
Two Stand To Fall is a solo storytelling game about people who would sacrifice for each other, in the face of a world that seeks their destruction.
Perhaps they live, in spite of the world. Perhaps they die, and are forever separated.
But there is a chance you both will come out alive. Therefore, you must try.
Play involves moving across a map and answering prompts as you travel. Your answers will slowly flesh out the world around your character: who they are, who their partner is, why this bond is so important — and inevitably, why they would throw away their hard-won safety to challenge the Crisis once more.
In order to play, you need:
- Playing cards
- One or two six-sided dice
- A token, such as a coin or a chess piece
- A journal, to record your past and your actions as you play
