I recently played this game on my smartphone and I realized that the smartphone app had something the tabletop game lacks...narrative.
Now I know that the flavor text is where pieces of information lie about each location, villain..etc but there is no overarching narrative to glue the whole thing together.

Has anyone attempted to have some kind of top level story per encounter that spans the entire Runalords saga?

It would help immensely to sell the game to my group, which kind of view the game as a simple dungeon romp with cards and text which is to small to read.

By the way that's not how I see it, I love it. Not able to translate the love to my group though.

I was thinking of attempting to copy the "story" of the app..not sure.

Any suggestions? Has something like this been attempted?

Thank you.

The card games are based on different so called Adventure Paths from the RPG, more or less copying different chapters of that story. So yes, this is absolutely possible, and as Oliver linked, already done by some creative souls :)
