Be prepared to be immersed in an ancient forest and a castle from the 11th century, as well as a community drenched in conspiracy and exploitation. While the Sheriff seeks to exploit the community, he struggles to blame others for his behaviour. In contrast, Robin Hood, works to support the community in the face of evil government. But can Robin out-shoot his competitors in both the archery and the bureaucracy to save the day?
