Greetings, Heroes! Online: The Impossible Library is an interactive storytelling experience where the students take the role of characters in the story, led by expert storyteller Graham Tugwell.
Like a choose-your-own-adventure-book, or world-famous role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, Graham will guide the adventurers through a series of exciting and deadly challenges – will each door they choose lead to success or further peril? How will they approach the many puzzles within? Will they find the wondrous treasure at the heart of the Impossible Library? Only their decisions – and the dice – will decide.
How It Works
Greetings, Heroes! Online: The Impossible Library is a story improvised in real time. Each class represents one character in the story, with their own suite of special abilities and unique magical items (found on a simple character sheet given to each teacher). As obstacles or puzzles are encountered, Graham will ask for the classes to make their choice of action, with their teacher placing each choice in Zoom chat. Graham will use these choices to direct the action of the adventure and their effect, for good or ill, upon the narrative. To participate, all you need is a Zoom link and an adventurous spirit.
Graham Tugwell is a writer, performer and Dungeon Master extraordinaire. He has brought the Greetings Heroes live show to over fifty schools, libraries and festivals.
