Cursed and I love it…

In the nicest possible way, all that Kelsey touches turns to Shadow. Or Darkness. But mainly Shadow.

These zines are a fantastic expansion of the game. Tightly written. No spoon-feeding. A fertile springboard for creative ideas.

As in the core game, the layout is clear and spacious, and the art is darkly evocative. And for the haptically-predisposed, the cover feels silky-smooth as a goblin’s bottom. I should know…

Just what I needed to jump start a campaign with ShadowDark

I finally convinced my group to switch to ShadowDark. The concise style of all of the ShadowDark resources is just beyond excellent. I bought all of the material from the Kickstarter campaign, including this fine zine. I use it as a starting point for a campaign, which eventually leads the players to the areas described in Midnight Sun (Curse Scroll #3). What I really love about these zines is that the hex keys trigger my imagination a lot, coming up with all kinds of connections between the places, creatures, and people presented. The descriptions are very concise, but still leave so much creative room for my own storylines. With just this zine, my mind is loaded with a vast amount of information, on which I can elaborate.

Great expansion to Shadowdark

New classes, new spells, new monsters and a great setting all done in the clear and punchy style of the original rule book.
A real must if you want to expand the possibilities in the game for both players and GM.

Amazing setting!

The Gloaming is such an inspiring setting with so many plot hooks and interesting NPCs. There is a lot of value packed into this little book.
