Drown in Fire and Blood!

After the Cataclysm sundered our world, reducing cities to ruins and bringing nations to their knees, a new threat unfurled its wings to cast a shadow upon our reality. In this spreading gloom caper demons, warped creatures, and horrifying monsters, all of which tear down what’s left of the world in preparation for the coming of their dark master, the dreaded Demon Lord.

     Godless is a new setting expansion for Shadow of the Demon Lord, giving you all the tools you need to transform our own planet into the World of Fire and Blood. This book contains:


  • Guidance for using Shadow’s ancestries in this new setting, plus a new take on the clockwork: the transcendent!
  • More interesting things, training elements for novice paths, and strange new religions
  • New expert paths such as the preacher and road warrior
  • An assortment of spells useful for surviving in such a bleak setting
  • New weapons, armor, gear, and vehicles
  • New rules for building items from salvage, using automatic weapons, and handling desperate battles fought from speeding vehicles
  • Extensive advice for transforming our planet into your very own World of Fire and Blood
  • New relics such as the Boomstick and new creatures such as the steel skeleton and the unseen

With Godless, you have everything you need to adapt Shadow of the Demon Lord for play in a post-apocalyptic environment, letting the players create characters who scavenge the landscape for parts, food, and fuel, while fighting off hideous mutants, invaders from other realities, and, of course, demons. With this book, you’ll be able to explore a brand new world in the grip of the dreaded Demon Lord!

Sound good. I'm waiting for the POD as well. I prefer to have a real book rather than PDF.

New to this I need anything else to play this before I purchase it?
Thanks for all the help. Sorry for the dumb question.

You will need Shadow of the Demon Lord core rule book. I imagine the Demon Lord's Companion would be useful but not essential.

I'm having a problem with the PDF. While the computer recognises that it is a PDF, any PDF reader (Or even Google Chrome) will complain and say that the file is either corrupted or not a PDF. As such, I can't view it at all. Looking forward to reading it when I can.

Full size preview doesn't seem to be working :(. Really keen to have a closer look at this product, been looking forward to it for a while.

Off topic but I Love the Shadow game line. I hope the author will put out a generic sci-fi core rulebook at some point (fully compatible with Shadow books).

It is a huge file. That might be the reason for the delay.

I think it may be busted -- get "Failed to load PDF document" and the "Reload" button just refreshes the page. The Quick Preview works great, however.

I'm able to pull it up on my end.

I contacted DriveThruRPG and they were able to fix it for me (or it just started working for me due to unrelated reasons -- either way, I'm happy!). Looks awesome, will definitely POD+PDF this. =)

Is it just me or have we been waiting a bit for the POD version?

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.
