Tycho and I have a tendency to make our projects a bit ambiguous. We like to leave room for your imagination. Somehow forum user PedroAsani cut right through all our bullshit and nailed the world in just a few lines. It's too perfect not to post here:
"From what I understand, based on the comics on the site and the Cryptozoics, the three factions have loose affiliations based on their mandates.
Lookouts: protect the village from the things in the forest. Daughters: protect the forest from everything. Sometimes that means the people in the village. Thornwatch: protect the vulnerable from the village and the forest.
So sometimes their goals align, sometimes they are opposed."
I am shocked at how on the money this is. I don't think we could have ever put it so succinctly.
