This is a page on the game The Star, The Moon, and the Cross, by Lee Short. It is a game set in the crusader states in the time of the Third Crusades and Saladin, called the Outremer. It uses a set of tarot-based mechanics with a rotating GM position, where players create a situation in an out-of-character "newsreel" phase. They then resolve it in a series of scenes where for each scenes the player to the left of the active player(s) acts as GM.
