The folk of Harrow County put the witch, Hester Beck, to death. They stabbed, hanged, and buried her under an old oak tree. Soon after, a young girl was born out of that same tree. As Emmy grew, she felt connected to the land and its inhabitants, the townsfolk and the haints. Now Hester’s family has returned to exact revenge, and Emmy must gather her allies to protect Harrow County.
In this asymmetric combat game, players can play as one of the Protectors, trying to rescue townsfolk, one of the Family, trying to destroy everything, Kammi, Emmy’s twin sister, trying to rule Harrow County, or Hester herself, controlling the roots of the tree she was buried under to infect the other players and devour her enemies.
