"MEMORIES FROM THE PAST

“Memories From The Past” focuses heavily on the storytelling aspect of the game. It is a non-systematic way of checking what the chosen Character is thinking - the drawn Character checks how he or she would react to the current situation based on the Character’s background and personality.

The book adds over 200 unique Scripts, all strictly connected to the Characters available in the game. The Scripts themselves can be of two kinds:

- Recollection - just as it was in the original game by 11 Bit Studios, the Characters in different stages of the game can reveal some essential details from their past. These memories or recollections can [1] often be purely story related, [2] influence the game (for example Morale) or [3] include a CHOICE made by a Character in the past (a player may also make a choice, as if he or she would have traveled in time; The choice can carry consequences reflected in the game’s mechanics, like for example a predefined Consequences token waiting to be triggered with another Script just lurking by the corner).

- Current Thoughts - meaning a reaction to the current state of affairs in the game, depending on the chosen Character and its state (hunger, morale etc.), and sometime depending on events that took place or the choices already made. These can also be only story related or influence the game’s mechanics.

10 cards build the basic engine that allows to determine a Character who’s recollections or thoughts are to be revealed. It also determines what exactly is to be checked and under what conditions (for example a card might trigger the thought of a Character with the most broken Morale or the one chosen by the players etc).

It’s worth mentioning that, besides the described add-on, in the basic Book of Scripts there are story driven intros for each Character in the game. These, as well as the Character’s Epilogues, are dedicated to each and one of the Characters and also depend on the accumulated Karma. For those of you who haven’t heard about the Epilogues before - it is a story-driven summarizing system that is triggered at the end of the game or upon a Character’s death"
