A model for YCH wanted ~ found


I'm looking for a deer or a doe who doesn't mind being a model for a YCH picture. I need a sample image and I've already drawn my Rain as a sample for another YCH, so it would be boring to draw them the second time.

- get a picture of your character for any personal use

- get an image to show as an example of a finished YCH picture and in my portfolio
- (if you won't mind I also would be glad to record a speedpaint)


Hey there!

A new fawn in the forest, their name is Rain.

It seems they were born as a frog, 'cause the first thing they did after logging in was to become a frog without any other deer's help.


It's pleasant to be back. I used to play TEF under another name and other deers, but for personal reasons I won't return to them ever again. At least I suppose so.

Those who spent time with me probably will recognise me later. In this case, I just ask them not to name me with my previous name.


Im just a fawn now, but I found this game a long time ago in my pre-teens, with neurodiverse disabilities i could not for the life of me understand much about the game at the time but im gonna be 23 in a few more months and definitely improved since then- happened to remember the game and boy was I stoked to see that its still around.

I adore the surreal human faced deer, been drawing them nonstop but I wont be able to post anything until my mother has recovered from her surgery so im just enjoying the forum from my tablet! Lesst anyone knows how to upload pictures in this website from mobile anyways!

coming back after a decade

i found this game as a kid so soo long ago. literally like 10 years ago give or take. and the joy i get finding out it still has a community and even plans for the future...
i downloaded on a whim way after i shoulda gone to bed and hopped around for a bit with someone and it was just as pleasant and relaxing as i remember. hoping to immerse myself at *least* a little bit<3 getting to know my deer and how he will develop as time passes and all that. developing myself as a person too by making my first ever post to a forum in the year 2023 cuz its never too late for anything


Hello, hello!

I just found out about this game today. what a fun concept! i've only played a couple minutes so far but i've had a lot of fun exploring Smiling

i've seen a few deer around! some were fawns like me, but others were all grown up with the craziest styles. i came here right after seeing them to find out how i can look as cool as them Laughing out loud

turns out i just need to give it some time haha who'd of thought haha

anyways, all the deer i've seen so far have been pretty sleepy. they didn't even wake up when i said hello or jumped around! who knew deer were such deep sleepers haha

i'm gonna keep running around for a while Smiling

see ya in the forest!

13 Years Have Passed

Dear fellow players,

Today marks my 13th anniversary for being on this game and community since 2010. I have played this game for such a long time. I hope everyone is well. For years, I have helped numerous players keep their physical avatar appearances and giving candles for new players. I wonder if there is a way for me to still become a backer for the new version of The Endless Forest. I hope to enjoy playing the game in the years ahead and seeing my old friends and making new ones.

May the Lord bless you with peace, prosperity, and joy.

See you in the forest. Smiling


I regret making a late night dinner that consisted of just, resturant style ramen? Gods I don't know how to describe my cooking.

Birthday boy

Our younger brother, Hvoshch Knigochei, has grown up this night, so the family has a small cozy gathering not far from the The Great Singing Tree to celebrate. We will be glad to cuddle with more creatures to feel even cozier if there are any who want to join!
His name looks so terrible in transliteration x) It means Horsetail the bookworm. You can listen to the pronunciation here.
