For a long time, we were at war with The Jackals. But now, we’ve driven them off, and we have this – a year of relative peace. One quiet year, with which to build our community up and learn once again how to work together. Come Winter, the Frost Shepherds will arrive and we might not survive beyond that. But we don’t know about that yet. What we know is that right now, in this moment, there is an opportunity to build something.

The Quiet Year is a map game. You define the struggles of a post-apocalyptic community, and attempt to build something good within their quiet year. Every decision and every action is set against a backdrop of dwindling time and rising concern.

The game is played using a deck of cards – each of the 52 cards corresponds to a week during the quiet year. Each card triggers certain events – bringing bad news, good omens, project delays and sudden changes in luck. At the end of the quiet year, the Frost Shepherds will come, ending the game.

  • Same here. I really wanted to try out this game (even though I nothing about it beyond this description) but the schedule didn’t work out for me (this time) or it sold out before I could sign up (the previous session). It would be great to see at a future con (Endgame MiniCon, DunDraCon, KublaCon, etc.)

    This sounds interesting! But it got scheduled against two events I’ve been waiting eagerly to attend. I hope it shows up again at another con.
