Essential Shadow Council origins #2


This is the second FreeG from Tiny Gork, featuring the monologues about the Shadow Council. It covers its origins and its downfall, a taste of what i am working on at The Shadow Council origins will be a story that sets the stage for GMs to write a campaign that can take adventurers from rookie mortals to all powerful immortal planewalkers.

I have been working on the Shadow Council since 2007 and taken my own gamer group through about a third of it before we all succumbed to real life. So now i am working on passing along the story of the Shadow Council on to others for them to enjoy.

It will serve as a sort of framework and it will have an end goal, but how the journey goes will be up to the GM. Along side of the origin story there will be more products to come, dungeons, npcs and monsters, just like the Time Hunters organisation sourcebook released with the first Essential Shadow Council Origins.

A quick breakdown:

The Essential Shadow Countil Origins part #2

The Essential series is a short introduction to the history of the Shadow Council. In part #2 Tiny Gork continues his story about their creation and how they created their own worst enemy. In another two short monologues, he talks about how the two sides of the internal conflict in the Shadow Council closes in on each other, coming ever closer to the reckoning that brought about the council downfall.

The councils proxies discovers a possible weakness and prepares to exploit it.

Part of The Shadow council setting

The Shadow Council is a systemless story setting that sets the stage where GM's can create a campaign for their players to assemble an ancient artifact and in the end choose to revive the Shadow Council or Destroy it with that artifact.

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.
