War of Shadow

Watermarked PDF

This is the ALPHA version of the pre-Kickstarter manuscript: War of Shadow. This is not meant for general release, but for those on the Alpha/Beta test program as well as those prior Kickstarter backers who obtained the sneak-peek extra.

War of Shadow is the next lore book in the Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok universe. Building upon the stories contained in Lords of the Ash and the Illuminated Edda, the War of Shadow explores the war that will ultimately decide the outcome of Ragnarok.

Unlike the other lore books, War of Shadow will be a stand-alone book, containing updated RGS rules, fine tuned for the "Viking horror investigation" genre.

A very comprehensive update is coming this fall (2020). The BETA has transformed the game dramatically. The War of Shadow game now features a full game deck of cards, including a scenario, lore and rule books. The previous 2019 files are obsolete, please click on "receive update notifications" to get the latest when we will upload them. The scenario that was run in 2018 and 2019 convention circuits (GenCon+PAX) makes its return with the new mechanics.

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.
