A downloadable encounter

Download NowName your own price
A wide, open green space on a shallow incline leading up to where a rocky outcrop marks the boundary to more rugged hills. A babbling little stream cuts the space in half, and there’s a little spinney near to the outcrop where it’s more sheltered against the prevailing wind. This landscape makes you want to yodel joyfully, or whistle nonchalantly, or at least sigh deeply and wistfully.

This is an trifold pamphlet encounter for the Mark of the Odd game eco mofos!! submitted to the eco mofos jam in March 2023.

A band of wretched orphans might meet the Shepherdex in the Wilderness or, more likely, in a Glade. In either case you’ll find them in the Pasture with their titterdog, and their herd, consisting of 2d6+3 titterpigs, and 1d6 titterpiglets.
