Humans are gone, lost to legend and remembered only by their ruins and the little creatures that survive them. In their place, animals have built towns, founded guilds, and created a civilisation of their own where beasts of all kinds can live in relative harmony.
In this cosy solo RPG, you take on the role of a Poultice Pounder, a beast with knowledge of ailments and their cures. It’s your job to travel the post-human landscape of the Bristley Woods, visiting ailing beasts and foraging for the reagents needed to cure them, all while working towards the end of a grand Seasonal Journey.
A collaboration between Anna Blackwell and Stout Stoat Games, Apawthecaria blends the Blackwell’s previous solo game Apothecaria with Stout Stoat’s post-human adventure game Scurry. All of the contemplative yet crunchy gameplay from Apothecaria is here, but in a new setting, with gorgeous illustrations and layout.
Set in the Bristley Woods in a near-future Scotland, Apawthecaria features page upon page of sumptuous art from various artists, additional rules for group and asynchronous play, and even a fold-out map of the Bristley Woods.
