The Tale of Ord
The Tale of Ord is a handmade limited edition narrative tabletop puzzle adventure of which 500 copies were made. In it, you are a private investigator tasked with finding two missing professors from the Emerens Institute, but when information is uncovered about a mysterious relic found by an archaeological team, you have the opportunity to change the course of destiny. Through four packages with an assortment of notes, articles, drawings, and strange artifacts, you set out on a journey to explore the supernatural forces of Norse mythology, attempting to learn the meaning of mysterious symbols as you progress through different puzzles and begin to unravel the secrets of fate and time. All 4 packages were shipped in 1 box, each containing a variety of puzzles and approximately 3-4 hours of gameplay.
