A wood heart is a game I produces for the September 2020 issue of { in*die Zine } . It is about a group of forest spirits living in a forest where humans have just begun to settle.

It is a map drawing and story telling game that uses a deck of tarot cards and a die as an oracle to allow the players to tell the stories of the forest spirits. It is a quiet comment on human activity and the climate emergency that threatens us all.

The september issue also comes with 9 other games by other creators, a load of other articles and some music so it is well worth picking up a copy.
