A game about letting go, after you are gone

You remember dying.

You are drifting through a void. Mist swirls about, cold and dry. Far way, you see a bright light. It beckons you in the dark, but something holds you back. It feels like an anchor is tied to your heart. You are pulled out of the void of mists and into a shadowy place.

You remember dying.

And not much more. You are back in our world, but it is dark and grim, even in the daylight. Everything feels muted and gray. Your mind is hazy and confused. And you can tell, others are with you.

What is Shades?

Shades is a live action freeform roleplaying game meant to be played in four to five hours over a single evening, with 3-6 players and a moderator. The characters are ghosts who are bound to their old lives by questions and unresolved business. Finding themselves in the company of other ghosts, they will learn more about their past and what is binding them to this world; and face what they have to confront or change to move on. They will be guided by Charon, the Ferryman, who will guide them through their discovery and confrontations. At the end, they will make a final choice as to their fate in the afterlife.

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.
