The Saga of the Shining Emblem

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street, 1st Floor New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


There is a legend in our lands. A legend that all we know will one day come to end. That the seas will shake, the land will quake and the skies will flake. There will be a great final battle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness and in their midst will arise a hero. A hero, wielding a shining emblem that will decide the fates of us all. That YOU!

The Saga of the Shining Emblem is a one-of-a-kind Improvised adventure, heavily influenced by the Role Playing greats of old. Each performance, one lucky audience member is chosen to be The Hero. They are then guided through an adventure by one actor serving as narrator and all other NPCs they encounter on their journey. Their quest? To find the Shining Emblem, an object of unlimited power capable of granting any wish. How they find it (or if they even bother to quest at all) is totally up to them! Its an unbelievable, unforgettable, unimaginable adventure all made up on the spot! All set to a live score!
