This is the front art from chapter four, "Scenes and Narration."

Illustration: Woman arrives on a murder scene, just as the perpatrator leaves...

I wanted an image that captured the essence of the game's approach to scenes. In Covenant each scene must be described with reference to the following criteria:

  • An emotional connection between a protagonist and the events
  • A conflict to be resolved
  • Urgency

The scene in question was inspired by one of the opening scenes from the demo I ran at Conpulsion. Our female protagonist arrives, her friend lies near death on the floor, and the perpetrator has just left... What does she do now?
