Shadows of Esteren is a medieval role-playing game with horrific and gothic overtones, in a dark, low fantasy setting

Esteren won three ENnies for the year 2013 : Best Interior Art GOLD, Best Production Value GOLD and Product of the Year SILVER!

"Sometimes a game just comes along and blows you away in all respects. This year, that game was Shadows of Esteren."

Picture a peninsula with steep hills, thick forests that barely let the sunlight through, misty valleys, and fortresses clinging to the mountainside... and beyond the oceans, the vast and mysterious Continent. In such awe-inspiring landscapes, the Shadows of Esteren role-playing game will introduce you to a gritty, realistic world, where supernatural elements are never trivial or meaningless, and where men have to face fierce threats lurking in the dark.


Intended for Game Leaders as well as for Players, this book is the first of the Shadows of Esteren series. Within, you will find:

  • A Gaming Universe


Discover the world of Esteren through the eyes of its inhabitants, especially those of Tri-Kazel's peninsula. Divided into three kingdoms, its political, geographical, and historical aspects are described. The lifestyle, the antagonisms among the factions, and the problems its inhabitants have to cope with on a daily basis are extensively portrayed.

  • A Complete System


Giving priority to the atmosphere and interactions among the Players, the game system of Shadows of Esteren will notably allow you to create your Characters, manage the evolution of their sanity, use Magience, uncover the secrets of the Oghamic arts, call upon the power of the Creator, etc.

  • Player Aids


This book includes six archetypes illustrating a few of the possible roles you can play, technical texts about assembling a group of Characters, a complete glossary and index, the character sheet, etc. These player aids will allow you to set up your first game sessions while fully introducing you to the Shadows of Esteren series.

Great content: A Low-Fantasy Setting without elves and dwarves, that is well written and has a dark touch, which I like very much. The background makes sense to me, the different fractions all have a purpose and the artwork is simply stunning and beaut [...]

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
