Please Note: This is the original edition of the game. While it is stil usuable, and contains all of the information needed to play, a Deluxe Edition, produced by Modiphius is now available on this site and soon in print, which incorporates the rules update, some of the supplementary material, and additional artwork. You can order this here.

A kingdom stands on the brink of destruction, as the vast realm called the Shadow Deep slowly swallows everything in its path. As the army fights to contain the tide of evil creatures teeming up out of the black clouds, the kingdom’s best soldiers, the rangers, must venture down into the shadows to gather information, rescue prisoners, and ambush enemy supply lines. It is a desperate fight against overwhelming odds, but every little victory brings another day of hope.

Rangers of Shadow Deep is a solo and co-operative tabletop miniatures game, in which players create their ranger, gather companions, and play through a series of missions in their fight to hold back the darkness. If their rangers survive, they will grow in power and ability, and be sent on more difficult, dangerous and intricate assignments.

This book also includes the first supplement for the game, Burning Light. In this mission, the rangers must venture to ruined convent, searching for an ancient artefact. As they choose what order to explore the ruins, and thus the order in which scenarios are played, they must gather clues to the artefact’s location. But they must be quick, for the longer they remain, the more the forces of the Shadow Deep become aware of their presence.

By the creator of Frostgrave and Ghost Archipelago.

It looks like currently you can't purchase a print version of this book at all from anywhere? We need to wait for the deluxe version and no one seems to know when that comes out, is this correct?

I honestly don't know. It's a PDF, so it should work the same as other PDFs on your phone.

I guess you can't get physical copies (hardcover or otherwise) of the original edition.
That makes the completionist/collector part of me extremely sad.

Can I ask; is it just the Deluxe Edition being distributed by Modiphius or going forward will the entire game and all future products be moving under their banner?

The Deluxe Edition is being distributed by Modiphius, but no, all supplements will continued to be published directly by myself.

So this version stays at full price, while the new deluxe version which includes the first module is the same price?
Customer avatar

Both include the first module, but the deluxe edition does include more stuff for the same price. This is here for those collectors, etc. who want the original edition.

Hi, I would like to voice my support for getting this pdf updated with the recent update and changes. While the free update is much appreciated, I find a rulebook far more convenient and easy to use if I don't have to double check with another document.

FYI, a free Rules Update was released yesterday (2019-12-20) as a separate PDF, to bring it in-line with the Deluxe Edition. Here's hoping they update this main product, perhaps with a second, optional PDF to download, so that customers don't have to go digging around for it, or possibly remain ignorant of its existence.

Greetings Joseph, I noticed you said there is a deluxe edition coming in early 2020.. any idea of when, or cost for a pdf? Did you sell this to Modiphius or are you working with them? Also, one thing I don't see mentioned here is the required dice. Does this require special or standard dice? (special dice are a pet peeve of mine and its a deciding factor on if I will purchase or not. For example, Star Trek Adventures by Modiphius uses special die and I won't purchase because of it.)

Excellent. And the 2020 changes are due when?
Customer avatar
Shawn E December 14, 2019 5:37 am UTC
Ok, so the questions about the changes seem to be ignored. Let me ask something different then. Where do people get minis and terrain for this game in Canada and what am I looking at as far as cost? I have never used minis or terrain.. at most, a paper map that I drew.

The game still belongs to me, but I have worked with Modiphius to produce a Deluxe Edition, mainly so a nice trade edition of the game will be available. You need 2 twenty-sided dice and a deck of cards to play. Most of the minis you need can be obtained from those produced for Frostgrave. You can see them all at North Star Military Figures, and order most of them from Brigade Games in North America.

what is the replay ability of these adventures?
Customer avatar
Joseph M December 06, 2019 7:20 am UTC
PUBLISHER
Most of them, can be played multiple times as the event system means that the same scenario will play out differently most times. The scenarios in Burning Light do involve hidden information, so they don't have quite the same replay value.

How many players are ideal? Is 6 too many?
Customer avatar

1-4 is ideal. 5+ will require adaptation to the scenarios to add extra challenge.

So .. I wonder if anyone has tried playing this on Tabletop Simulator? This has plenty of minis you can 'duplicate' for your virtual tabletop. This PC based simulator has fantasy options. Plus you can save the game and not worry about set up. Just an idea ...

I'm playing it with a 'homemade' digital table. I just use Powerpoint. I got a transparent hex grid to facilitate measuring and I use shapes, clip arts, etc. as scenery, figs and markers. Works GREAT for solo play.

Hi Joe, Is there a way for someone who purchased the $20 PDF to get a discount on the hardcover book? I'm ready to upgrade!

I'm afraid not. I did offer a discount right when the hardback came out, but it was just too much work to continue.

I supported this title and can't start the adventure because I do not have any terrain available or mat to play on.
Do anyone have a pdf file of pictures that I can print so that I can have a wonderful experience? I know I can just play on top of a blank paper and draw stuff like trees etc, but I would like to play it with awesomeness. thanks for those who can give me guidance and tips.

Search for papercraft terrain, there's loads of stuff out there. There's some downloads for frostgrave on the osprey site. Also try Dave Graffam's terrain (he has some free ones on here) to make them more sturdy you can stick the bits to card to make them last a bit better.

For a mat try for a brown or green cloth

Format
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.
