Your lover has died, but you know a way to bring them back. But first you must search the dark forest for components for the ritual. Will you be able to find them or will your love be lost for good?
This is a Carta game where you lay out the cards on the table to act as a sort of board or map. You start with only one card face up: the Ace of Hearts. From there you move your token one piece at a time, answering the prompts for each of the cards.
You are eventually looking for the 2 of Hearts, the ritual site, but if you find it too early (like I did) then you can skip over it and return at a later time.
Throughout the prompts you will gain and lose energy and resources. Once you think you are ready you can return to the 2♥ to perform the ritual.
The ritual consists of rolling 2d6 and depending on how well you roll + the # of resources you can either gain a life for your partner, lose energy and gain life for your partner, or just lose energy. If you can get your partner up to 10 life before you run out of energy then you have revived them!
I played the game a little darker than probably intended since my witch was an absolute scoundrel, bastard, and highwayman, but there’s nothing in the game itself that’s really dark. (except the overall theme of necromancy.) You can read it Here
