A group of travellers has awoken an Ancient Evil.
Little do they know, some of those who travel among them have already been corrupted. Forsaken Forest is a social deduction card game set within a mysterious forest inexplicably warped by dark magic. In order to win, you must navigate to your team's veiled destination before the opposing team navigates to theirs, or eliminate everyone who stands in your way. Along the way, you need to manage your resources wisely, gain the trust of your fellow travelers, and fend off the evils of the night.
Players start the game as either a villager or as one of the Forsaken. The villagers are a simple folk who just want to return to their village with the cure for the plague that is decimating their people; the Forsaken desire nothing more than to lead the group to the Void, a soul prison where the forest holds the essence of all the innocents who have dared to tread within it. Your secret role determines your objective in the game, that is, which of the eight face-down destinations within the forest that you seek to navigate to, and who you need to eliminate. The first team to either reach their destination or eliminate all of the opposing team's players wins.
Just remember: Not all who wander are lost...
