Bleeding Edge #1: Mansion of Shadows


Fear the Shadows

Standing on a hill overlooking the lands of the Kirsvald is an ancient mansion, the seat of power of the Staufen family. After years of decline and creeping corruption, the once noble house has become a den of wickedness and the center of a twisted plot orchestrated by an ancient evil. Now the locals fear the Staufen name and hate the oppression that has become their lot. It is into this deadly nest that a group of brave heroes must descend to uncover and defeat the vile serpents that poison this land.

Mansion of Shadows is packed with information, including:

  • A complete adventure for four or more characters of 1st through 3rd level.
  • A detailed gazetteer of the region including an extensive map.
  • Fantastic maps of the mansion.
  • Variant scenarios for incorporating mass combat rules from the Advanced Player's Manual.
  • New mechanics like the Damned feat and the Sinthrall template.
  • New stat-block formats for easier play.
  • Terrifying creatures drawn from The Book of Fiends like the cranial wretch and the herlekin.

Mansion of Shadows launches Green Ronin's Bleeding Edge Adventures.

Mansion of Shadows Modules seem to be on a come back trail. There was a time when everyone seemed to be playing the same modules and there was a lot of fun talking to others that play the same game knowing that the modules were mostly c [...]

I recently ran this module, and I highly recommend it. It provided a great balance of role playing, problem-solving, combat, and sheer terror -- my players had a blast, and so did I. I'll be running this one again in the future for other groups. [...]

So many adventures assume that the players have the time for it. Meaning that they create such a specific plot, that trying to import it into your current campaign world often comes across as a pointless sidequest, even when you put in your best effort [...]

I have a lot of adventures sitting on my gaming shelf, gathering dust. Some I?ve run, others I intend to run, and others will probably never see any use at all. The problem with adventures is, unlike rules supplements, you really can?t use them for muc [...]

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.
