Event Picture

This is a Forest exploration event. It can occur once per playthrough and offers the chance to acquire Orichalcum Bead Orichalcum Bead, Sage Powder Sage Powder, Seeds Seeds and Wood Wood. Survivors can gain the positive trait Special Trait IconBones blessing temporarily, but be aware: you can also become temporarily Wound icon Bleeding.

Inspect[ | ]

You're in a small clearing filled with dead and twisted trees. Nothing looks out of the ordinary, but there's an energy in the air that sets it apart from the rest of the forest. After a few minutes, you get it: while the clearing is natural, the disposition of the trees is... slightly more than that.

  • Inspect closer
Something is amiss, but you can hardly tell what. You discern the shape of a rune on the ground. Or are your eyes showing you what you want to see?

Examine The Ground[ | ]

Relevant Skills: Exploration, Wisdom

There's definitely a patch of ground that looks out-of-place, with a distinct pattern. No grass grows here, and it's oddly geometric.

  • Focus on the pattern (Exploration)
Failure
You know this patch of missing grass conveys a special meaning, but you're not familiar enough with your surroundings to interpret it.
+Depression Depression
Success
You remember where this shape comes from. It's *INGWAZ, the mark of Ing, a very ancient god. This is the rune of male fertility, governing the concepts of seed and self-sacrifice.
+ Wisdom Experience

Dig[ | ]

Relevant Skills: Strength

The earth is surprisingly soft and easy to dig, even with your own bare hands. However, you soon reach a harder layer that seems to be made of some kind of stone. Its texture reminds you of bones. + Fatigue Fatigue

  • Keep digging
It takes much more efforts to keep digging, but you carry on, despite an increasing fatigue.
  • Keep digging (Strength)
Failure
???
Success
You finally reach a solid layer with a peculiarly smooth surface, a bit like an eggshell. There's a tiny square hold at the top that reminds you of the pattern in the grass.
+ Fatigue Fatigue
+ Unlocks "Examine the tiny hole"
  • Give up
As soon as you stop digging, the hole starts to fill itself at an alarming rate. After a few minutes, there's no trace of your vain labour.
+ Depression Depression

Search The Dead Trees[ | ]

Relevant Skills: Agility

You start to clean up the clearing, pushing rotten trunks and broken branches around. Suddenly, you hear a loud crack above your head.

  • Look up
You stare in disbelief at a massive dead branch falling toward you. It lands on your head with a wet sound.
+ Injury Injury
As a positive note, you find enough wood to bring to the camp
+ Wood Wood
You keep looking around, but there's nothing else of interest, except a handful of seeds.
+ Seeds Seeds
  • Jump aside (Agility)
Failure
You didn't jump quick enough to completely avoid the dead branch that hits your shoulder. But it could have been worse.
+ Injury Injury
As a positive note, you find enough wood to bring to the camp
+ Wood Wood
You keep looking around, but there's nothing else of interest, except a handful of seeds.
+ Seeds Seeds
Success
A heavy dead branch crashes next to where you were standing. Phew, that was close!
As a positive note, you find enough wood to bring to the camp
+ Wood Wood
You keep looking around, but there's nothing else of interest, except a handful of seeds.
+ Seeds Seeds

Examine The Tiny Hole[ | ]

Relevant skills: Wisdom

The hole's shape is way too regular to be accidental. Maybe it is a kind of lock. On the other hand, you don't see anything that could fit in...

  • Look closer (Wisdom)
Failure
???
Success
You have a the sudden intuition that this is not a lock, but a receptacle of some sort. This would be a perfect place to plant a seed!
+ Unlocks "Plant a Seed"

Plant A Seed[ | ]

Relevant Skills: Gardening

Requires at least 1 Seed

Just as you thought, the seed fits nicely. But nothing happens. There's probably still something else that has to be taken care of...

  • Think (Gardening)
Failure
As you wonder what the next step is, a faint smell of burning comes from the hole. The seed has turned to ashes before your eyes.
+ Depression Depression
Success
The seed obviously needs to be watered. And you know water will not be enough. This will require some sacrifice.
  • Slit a finger open
You cut the tip of your finger, deep enough for a few pearls of blood to drip into the hole, onto the seed
+ Injury Injury
As you wonder what the next step is, a faint smell of burning comes from the hole. The seed has turned to ashes before your eyes.
+ Depression Depression
  • Slit your palm open
You make a large cut in the palm of your hand, and a trickle of blood starts to drip down your fingers, watering the seed.
+ Injury Injury
The seed suddenly germinates and starts to grow. But before it can reach your knee's height, it withers, and dies.
+ Depression Depression
  • Slit both your wrists open
Your hands are shaking when you open wide gashes in your wrists. The bloody twin streams soak the earth and the seed.
+ Injury Injury
+ The survivor gains the wound Wound icon Bleeding for 2 days.
You can't tell if it's the shock of the blood loss or the result of a divine intervention, but within a few startling minutes, the seed has become a tree. You reflect, in awe, on the miracle of existence. You feel a deep connection with every living thing and their never-ending struggle against oblivion.
- Depression Depression
+ The survivor gains the positive trait Special Trait IconBones blessing for 8 days.
A glimmer in the trunk of the tree awakens you from your reverie. It's a small metallic sphere that feels warm to the touch.
+ Orichalcum Bead Orichalcum Bead
+ Sage Powder Sage Powder
