Selected as one of Tommy Brownell's Top Six of 2013! 

Heaven's Shadow is the first game published under the Bedroom Wall imprint. Written and designed by John Berry, this is a game of faith and assassination set in the modern world.
 
Players take on the role of Shadows, assassins in the service of God, empowered by Faith to hunt down and eliminate the ancient Nephilim. Immortal demonic beings in the guise of normal men and women, the Nephilim have dwelled on Earth since the days of the Great Flood. Working in concert with a secret Agency of fellow believers, the Shadows are tasked with the assassination of these evil beings in order to end their Path of Sin.
 
The system is based on Mini Six, the excellent OpenD6 variant developed by AntiPaladin Games, modified to suit the trappings of modern-day supernatural espionage.  For those unfamiliar with the classic D6 system, it is a simple D6 dice pool system designed to be easy and quick to run and play, and has been used in such classic RPGs as Star Wars and Ghostbusters. Player skills are enumerated by a number of dice, which are then rolled against each other or a target number to determing success.
 
To that core have been added the following:
  • The Advantage System: A new system for handling extended challenges based on gaining and holding advantage over one's opponent in the form of bonus dice.
  • The Stunt Die: Inspired by the traditional D6 Wild Die, players are rewarded with the Stunt Die for attempting special feats, increasing their chances of success, but also failure
  • Double Success: Success threshold system triggers special combat maneuver options like disarms and even instant takedowns on notable successes (and failures!)
  • Planning the Hit: Planning a successful assassination takes time and careful execution. By making a detailed plan, and executing each seperate task successfully, players earn bonus dice for the killing shot.
  • Faith and Prayer: Players grow in their faith, and through that faith can call on aid from the Supreme Director in the form of Prayers, small miracles designed to help them in the task of the Watch.
  • The Paths of Sin: Each Nephilim foe focuses on a specific sin, and earns dangerous powers from each, providing a deadly and infernal threat
  • Special Training: Characters earn additional points in character creation for providing backstory for their skill choices.  

The digital version includes both PDF and EPUB editions of the game, in order to better serve our users of digital readers and other such devices.

The PDF and print versions come in 6"x9" format.

A chilling world where evil walks in human form and it is up to the assassins of Heaven's Shadow to take out the demon spawn before they taint the world so much that the final curtain is called. The author has come up with a world in which the professi [...]

WHAT WORKS: A fantastic premise, and the streamlined MiniSix seems to fit it like a glove. The Opportunity rules put that extra risk into the combat, and the miracles from the “Supreme Director” are some pretty impressive stuff, as is the Assassina [...]

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.
