Thornwatch is a graphic novel adventure game for 3-6 players that bridges the gap between narrative-driven RPGs and pick-up-and-play board games. A group of heroes fights their way through the comic panels of a world created by Penny Arcade's Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins. Each branching storyline plays in about an hour using easy-to-learn character decks and custom dice mechanisms. Gorgeous map tiles and pawns provide a sense of tactile immersion that is unique to each adventure.
Thornwatch: The Dark of the Wood includes two hundred new cards and nine storyboards for play with the Thornwatch base game. This includes five new hero decks (The Briarlock, The Dark Courier, The Unsundered, The Weave-Weald, The Woldsen), five hero trackers, and one new Judge tracker (two Judges).
