Hero and Guide
What is the Hero & Guide story tactic?
Stop talking about yourself. Make your user the Hero of your story. You play a supporting role: the Expert Guide.
For every Luke, there's a Yoda. And as the little green fella might say "Hero of every story not you are." Tell us what your Hero is trying to achieve. Then show us how you guide them on their journey and what special gift you offer them along the way.
Try this tactic after a session with Three Great Conflicts.
