Lords of Gossamer & Shadow Kickstarter 

Powered by Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Roleplaying 

"The spiritual successor to Amber Diceless Role-Playing" - Dominic McDowall-Thomas of Cubicle Seven Entertainment 

This world is but one of untold many, a flux of chance caught between shadow and light. It is a world poised between great powers that shape and define all matter, one of many battlegrounds in an epic struggle between form and cacophony. This is the battle between the creators, shapers, and destroyers of worlds. Welcome to theLords of Gossamer and Shadow!

Lords of Gossamer and Shadow is an original sourcebook and role-playing game using Erick Wujcik’s Amber Diceless Role-playing, licensed from Diceless by Design. It is a standalone product, but remains fully compatible with the existing rules system and can be readily used in new and existing campaigns.

ENnie award winning designer and Amber Diceless Role-Playing veteran Jason Durall brings you the talent and imagination you've seen in his work with Shadow KnightThe Game of Thrones Rpg, and the Basic Roleplaying game.

The manuscript is complete, written and edited. We've packed this book with great art from the talented Jason Rainville--Whose fantastic work has recently appeared in theNPC Codex by Paizo Publishing, Lamentations of the Flame Princess, and works by Rite Publishing.

There's just one problem. When this project began, we projected only a 60-page book. Sixty pages to create the spiritual successor to Amber Diceless Role-Playing. To create an entirely new realm of intrigue and adventure. And then we turned the author loose on it.

What we got back was an additional 100 pages of pure awesome. One hundred and sixty plus pages of adventure.

We knew we had to make this book, no matter what it took, but our resources forLords of Gossamer and Shadow were spent-- and I think you'll agree, they were spent well. Rite Publishing could wait for months.

We could internally fund the remaining necessary artwork, but we don't want to wait. We don't think you want to, either. Artists get busy, new projects come up. We want to lock in Jason Rainville to create the remaining artwork. To keep the same artistic theme. That is the sole purpose of this project-- to fund the few remaining pieces necessary to fill out the completed manuscript. With your support, our Kickstarter campaign hopes to gather the resources necessary to present an absolutely gorgeous, unified game that is a joy to play and behold.

With design by Jason Durall, cover art by Jason Rainville and editing by Perry Grosshans, we want to give you a second chance to be a part of a roleplaying legacy. To rescue the project from a purgatory of waiting.

Thank you for your time.

As an introduction to Lords of Gossamer & Shadow, this is good - and you can't beat the price. Gossamer & Shadow is a development of Amber Diceless Role-Playing, that I personally am not fond of. But if you like diceless, and a system that enco [...]

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.
