The Shade Land: an introductory setting

Recommended Posts

And what better way to end the year than making a new setting available?

The Shade Land lies under a cover of impenetrable clouds where dwells the Dark Goddess, mother of the ruling race of dark  elves known as  Sha'zir. Here creatures of darkness lurk in the shadows, from poisonous dragonkind to huge insects. And here  mankind has retreated to the highlands, where it breeds giant featherless birds as mounts, in a fight for its very existence.


This introductory Fantasy setting includes:

  • Dark cult examples
  • Monks of the Order, a unique blend of arcane magic and martial arts
  • Necromancy
  • Flying Mounts
  • Giant Insect statistics

and many more "dark" fantasy elements that you can insert into your Revolution D100 campaign or easily adapt to any percentile-based RPG.

The setting is 40-page long and is released as PDF-only, available on DriveThruRPG/RPGNow     . A saddles-stitched print version is possible but not planned yet.

Alephtar is on a roll isn't it!  I will pick this up later today in PDF and will look forward to a possible print version!

Interesting - sounds a little light the Midnight setting by Fantasy Flight Games... not sure yet if I need to get this, Dark Elves and Orcs sounding a little bit same-old-samey. On the other hand, there seem to be some weird/linteresting elements (riding birds, common origin of humaoid races ...).

40 pages seem a little bit slim for a setting book, however - do you plan to expand on this?

We might expand on this if no other high fantasy setting is proposed.

Dark Elves sound as samey-old-samey to whomever has played Forgotten Realms or other D&D game worlds, but there was no equivalent of good old drows for D100, so far. And even lizard people... well, the Griffin Island implementation did not get the attention it deserved.
