shadow of the Prince of Darkness

A Role-Playing Game of Epic Narrative & the Tarot

This is the booklet version of the Swansong role-playing game,

formatted to print double sided.


Check out the Swansong bundles and grab yourself a bargain!

Harness the rich symbolism and story telling power of the tarot deck.

Swansong focuses heavily on the player characters and their unfolding stories.


Ultimately each character must face their own personal demons under cosmic judgment.

If this trial is passed the characters will confront The Prince of Darkness - whatever form he takes.

And if they should falter - It will be their swansong.


The game system is flexible and robust, Swansong can easily accommodate any kind of

character you care to conceptualise.


The tarot based resolution system is quick and elegant allowing almost seamless play, as well

as granting far more narrative control to players than traditional rpgs.


Featuring a revolutionary and tactical combat system, victory can be won or lost in an instant.

Battles are fraught with risk and reversals of fortune, with inter-player psychology as decisive

as a meaty stat line. Also, the yielding mechanic means you will never be screwed by drawing

one lousy hand.


Swansong incorporates a tarot based scenario generator, providing you with the means of

creating countless role-playing scenarios.

Original electronic
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.
