A worldbuilding/mapmaking RPG for 1-4 players about the imprecision of maps.

In this GM-less game, players first create their own personal maps showing their community's important landmarks, adding backstories which link them to the land as well as other communities via a simple prompts sytem.

Then The Royal Cartographer arrives, and players will have negotiate which parts of their personal maps will be represented on the kingdom's "official" map.

In the solo version, the player also plays the Royal Cartographer!

Heavily inspired by The Quiet Year and Beak, Feather and Bone.
