Wizards of Shadowfell


The Wizard of Shadowfell is a variant core character lass for D20 Fantasy gamers, a twist on the Wizard haracter class most gamers are familiar with. The Wizard of Shadowfell is an attempt to emulate he wizardly heroes and protagonists of myth and
literature; in particular, to allow players to build heroic arch-magi similar to three main inspirations: J.R.R. Tolkien’s Gandalf, Terry Brook’s Allanon the Druid, a character similar to Gandalf in many respects), and Merlin, as portrayed in films like Excalibur and Mists of Avalon.

The Wizard of Shadowfell is a secretive, enigmatic and powerful spell caster. His sheer brilliance and indomitable will allows him to walk with demons and converse with gods, and in both cases he is treated as a rare equal. In contrast with the traditional Wizard, the Wizard of Shadowfell casts spells rarely and with great deliberation, but the spells the arch mage masters are incredibly powerful and can change the course of history.

Wizards of Shadowfell excel at tactics and deception, and are well versed in the history of nations, politics and court intrigue. Despite this, few Shadowfell Wizards rule openly, with most choosing to be the voice behind the throne’, or to rule through proxies. In an adventuring party, the highly educated and purposeful Wizard of Shadowfell is likely to be the team leader, the one who decides the course of a
journey, who uses his sharp mind and divinatory spells to prepare the party to the dangers they will face on the road.

This fourteen page PDF includes everyting you need to include these powerful and enigmatic wizards in your campaign.

I suspect that I, like others who first saw this product, were drawn to it because of the use of the word 'Shadowfell'. And I suspect as well that this intentional or unintentional 'marketing' has done its job, even though the product in question has [...]

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.
