A group of friends has decided to spend a night in the woods, camping.
They gathered around the campfire to talk about their dreams and goals. However, the chatter is interrupted by a noise from the bushes immersed in the darkness behind them.
Then, all the friends are gone, and the only one remaining is called by a feeble voice from the woods, asking them to face their fears.

The Voice in the Wood is a psychological Role-Playing Game.
You are the Protagonist: the forest has chosen you, calling your name. You must go into the darkness, only equipped with a few items, and face your fears. What awaits you is a rite of passage, a journey from which you will return changed.
How… it will be decided by your choices and the rules of the game.

Inspired by Twin Peaks and Alan Wake, it was designed for the upcoming edited volume Roll for Learning: MicroTTRPGs to use in the classroom.


  • To play The Voice in the Woods, you need groups of three players: one player is the Protagonist, who passes through the woods during the night, while the other two play the forest, challenging the Protagonist with physical obstacles and manifesting their most hidden fears.
  • You will need two six-sided dice of two different colors, a piece of paper and a pencil, and an index card with an X written on it.
  • The game does not require any particular procedures: the text guides the players step by step around the table, directly addressing the Protagonist.


  • Number of players: 2-3
  • Age of players: 16+
  • Length: 1-2 hours per game session
