The forest stands old. When the fog rolls in at dusk, and the boots of mailed adventurers crush stems and ferns, these trees uproot. Not quenched by rain or river, the forest drinks the blood of its invaders. This forest is old, full of memory, and anger.
You stand, within the core of ancient aspen or old oak, feeling the flow of sap in spring and the frozen silence of icy winter. As the forest breathes, you burn the bones of those who sought to carve through. Cruel dryads, all, you and your fellow spirits spire upwards toward the light of stars, and score the stone beneath your roots with deep cracking force.
And one day hatred walks in your domain. Fire and steel assails wood and stone as armored knights, gnarled wizards, and shrike sharp rogues bring death with them. Passing through wood like doors you emerge, recondite and wielding blades of razor thin fern. You defend the woods. And for now the intruders melt into the dirt and you sleep once again. If a hate-filled heart screams in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?
Full of Memory And Anger is a meditation game of time and stillness, interrupted by brief scenes of ecological retribution. You play fae creatures living in the heartwood of old growth trees, dispensing asymmetrical retaliation to intruders in your realm. These intruders may bring with them evil and hate. They may be powerful fantasy adventurers, formidable masters of industry, or indiscriminate agents of chaos and pollution. You will always crush them in terrifying ways.
This game is inspired by The Skeletons by Bully Pulpit Games. It is a game of answering questions, but more importantly it is a game of silence and of waiting.
