Root is an adventure and war game in which 2 to 4 players fight for control of a vast desert. The wicked Marquis de Cat took over a large forest, intending to collect its wealth. Under her rule, many creatures of the forest united. This Alliance will seek to strengthen its resources and undermine the power of cats. In this endeavor, the Alliance can enlist the help of wandering vagrants who can navigate more dangerous forest trails. While some may sympathize with the hopes and dreams of the Alliance, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey that once ruled the forests. Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, quarreling Airy have found a new commander who they hope will lead their faction to regain their ancient birthright. The stage is being prepared for a competition that will decide the fate of the great forest. The players decide for themselves which group will eventually take root.
