This is a map-drawing game. You collectively explore the struggles of a community of monsters, trying to rebuild and heal after driving off the human occupiers. It’s a game about community, difficult choices, and decolonization.
When you play, you make decisions about the community, decisions that get recorded on a map that is constantly evolving. Parts of the map are literal cartography, while other parts are symbolic. Players work together to create and
steer this community, but they also play devil’s advocate and introduce problems and tensions into the game.
About the Download
To download it laid out for booklet printing, print double-sided, select the flip on short-edge or bind on short-edge option.
As there is not currently an official set of cards for The Deep Forest, I have uploaded these to print out and sleeve.
I put mine in standard CCG sleeves of different colours for each season.
Inspired by Bully Pulpit Games' fantastic Carolina Death Crawl I have copied the Survey and Rules sections into cards so that players can take turns drawing and reading them. These should be put in clear sleeves with the backs also provided in the file.
I have tried to get rid of any typos and formatting problems, please comment if you find any of them and I'll change the file.
