Sorry if this is out of line to ask, but is there a chance more community copies will be added soon? This game seems like something that could really help me out right now, but I'm not really in a place where I can afford it. If not, very sorry and thanks anyway! If for nothing else, at least for opening my eyes to new storytelling possibilities

Thank you for asking! I didn't realize it had run out, so I just added more! I hope you enjoy! I'll check all the others too and feel free to grab copies of any you're interested in.
Hi! Is there any chance there will be more community copies soon? I've heard so many amazing things about Village Witch in the Spanish solo RPG community that I really want to give it a go, but I can't really afford it right now. I don't want to seem ungrateful or anything because I really appreciate your generosity. Anyways, thanks in advance <3
Thank you for asking! I didn't realize they had run out, so I just added more. I hope you enjoy it!

I got this in the Trans Rights in Texas bundle. I really appreciated how the game is designed for a light cognitive load that left my tired brain free to go places with the prompts. I played with a hanafuda deck divided into 4 seasons. My witch spent the winter in the forest village of Fear No Wolf, where she healed a badger who later saved her during a blizzard. In spring she moved to the grasslands, to Jonton where the homes don't all exist at once and everyone is named John. To my great surprise, in the summer she found her forever home in a nameless mountain village, where she was welcomed with a designated spot in the community cheese cave. A wonderful experience.
What a lovely game! I played this today as my first solo game ever and had a year as a forest witch full of discovery, beauty, wish-fulfillment fantasies, and surprising depth when some melancholy of my own wove itself into my writing. It was like a little holiday in my mind, which was really, well, lovely!
I played the version with a tarot deck and used the card images as additional inspiration for the prompts, when I didn't have an idea right away. I would definitely play this game again. I'm also now very curious what else there is to discover in the world of solo games for me. Thanks for getting me off to a good start in that area!
I really love this game as a journaling experience with a bit more structure that builds in the concept of a year passing (similar to Cozy Town). The prompts are highly flexible, and every season is as brief or as long as you want it to be. You can move where your steading is as well to environments with great variation (I'm glad I chose to be a desert witch for my first run). The game captures very well the feeling of, say, being a new witch on Discworld for an afternoon.
Is there any kind of community for this game? I'd love to set up a community on, say, Dreamwidth, where people can share their journals with each other and follow each others' stories.
May I share my Edwina - Village Witch sessions on this community?
Yay!! I was able to get a hardcover copy! I will definitely join the new community and share stories. Friday Tea is sadly currently out of her lovely witchy tea 🍵 that is a wonderful companion to drink while journaling 📔 that came recommended by a friend. :)
I purchased Village Witch as part of the Solo But Not Alone bundle, and am ecstatic with the results so far. I had a group of friends help me answer the character building questions & now I'm writing my game sessions and sharing them at https://nsfwords.wordpress.com/village-witch-edwina/
I'm using the game as part of my foray back into creative writing after 4+ years of being unable to write due to depression.
I can't thank you enough for how inspiring I've found the game so far!
thank you!! It means so much to hear that! I can't wait to read through it and love that you're doing this.
Got it as part of the Solo But Not Alone bundle, and it was the first game I tried – I'm so happy this is where I started. Village Witch is a really moving, well-honed, introspective and imaginative game. I enjoyed it deeply and moved through some profound emotions over the course of the changing seasons.
This is a wonderful game that can be as brief or as long as you'd like – and I highly recommend it!
Hey, I just want to say how cool it is that you have a "community copies" section. I think that is so awesome and generous!
