For a long time, our monstrous home was occupied by invading humans. Now, finally, we’ve driven them off, and we’re left with this: a year of relative peace. One quiet year, with which to dismantle their settlements and reclaim our lands. Come Winter, a band of heroes will arrive and we might not survive the encounter. This is when the game will end. But we don’t know about that yet. What we know is that right now, in this moment, we monsters have an opportunity for healing and self-discovery in our deep forest, away from human eyes.

The Deep Forest is a map game of post-colonial weird fantasy. It’s a re-imagining of The Quiet Year, one that centres upon monstrosity and decolonization.

As a "map game," The Deep Forest is quite unlike a conventional role-playing game. Rather than playing distinct characters, the players take on the role of a community as a whole, collaborating on the construction of a map that serves as a record of their trials and accomplishments over the course of a year.

This session is open to players of all ages and experience levels, and all necessary materials will be provided.
