„A whole new campaign world for the Pathfinder RPG inspired by The Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, & Planescape settings!


In 2012 we launched the first glimpses of the Shadowlands, a brand new campaign setting for the Pathfinder RPG, with a small adventure and a conversion guide which were each ENnie-nominated productions. Several of the products of our 2011 initial Kickstarter are finally now being released as well, but in all of this, the GMs among us couldn’t help but feel a pull for the one thing we old-school GMs love the most: a good old-fashioned full-length campaign guidebook.


Now is your chance to help make that Campaign Guidebook, inspired by the great campaign sets from 2nd and 3rd edition Dungeons and Dragons, into a reality!

Shadowlands is a campaign setting in the best old-school tradition of classic fantasy gaming worlds, as realized by acclaimed writers, artists, and designers. It makes use of the versatile Pathfinder open system to offer a broad spectrum of options for players and Game Masters, alike, with a focus on epic deeds, bold exploration, and global intrigue.

The Shadowlands setting offers unique magic and psionics systems, new mechanics for handling languages and diplomacy, new races and racial options, super advanced technologies (fit into a fantasy setting), special rules for morality and beliefs, and so much more!


It is a world of realistic grittiness set on a planet 10 times the size of Earth and is sure to keep you and your players campaigning for years to come!

The Shadowlands is an intentional blend of fantasy and science fiction. It is a post-apocalyptic world so advanced that it appears magical. Part of the realism of the Shadowlands is to re-imagine a world where the possibilities of fantasy are in fact possible, a remembrance of futures past, and to provide a narrative way for players to engage that. Accordingly, it takes inspiration from a number of different sources. The far-future stories of Jack Vance, Gene Wolfe, A Canticle for Leibowitz and the Culture series of Iain M. Banks provide the science fiction foundations of our setting, just as heady films like Inception, Cloud Atlas, and Equilibrium paint images of what it’s like to exist in a world where magic and psionics are fundamental and also controlled!


Finally, the classic Dungeons & Dragons settings of old like Planescape, Ravenloft and the original Dark Sun give a sense of the ways that beliefs, ideologies, motivations, and factional affiliation can affect and encourage great roleplaying!“
