Is Downwood Tales compatible with Sorrow and Remembrance? By that, I mean can you use the characters, abilities, search cards, and encounters from Downwood Tales while playing Sorrow and Remembrance?
Sorrow and Remembrance is REQUIRED to be able to play Downwood Tales. The story requires the use of certain of the mice figures and also uses some of the map tiles.
Using Downwood Tales elements with Sorrow and Remembrance can be done. The Heroes can certainly be used. It becomes a bit less thematic to use the outdoor minions in the indoor setting, but you certainly could use Encounter cards from Downwood if you wished.
