Rangers of Shadow Deep: A Tabletop Adventure Game

Watermarked PDF

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.

Downloaded it yesterday and I love it. Now I can plunder all my board games for their minis and use them in skirmishes. Just one question: Is there any chance to get some kinda monster generator to convert our own monster minis into game stats with a proper stat/XP (risk/reward) ratio? Maybe in an upcoming expansion?

Does this have a random scenario generator? Or is it all pre-set scenarios? If the later, what happens when you finish all the ones in the book?

There will be expansions with new adventures to play through, but the scenarios in the book are very re-playable.

Absolutely. There are random monster encounters and you can change up your party composition and the board layout on replays.

When I read about it, I assumed it was same format as the many Frostgrave books I have, so I was a tad disappointed to be directed to a pdf on RPGnow.

I'd definitely be interested in print version of this, so I'm waiting... impatiently.

A ranger and three companions? Which hobbit got left behind? Or did Sam get eaten by the insects of the Midgewater Marshes?

Awesome, huge Frostgrave fan. Is there a print version coming? I prefer to have stuff like this on paper.

I wish the preview went one page further, so we could see the "What do you need to play?" page. So - before we buy, what do we need? How many minis, or what kind, terrain, etc?
Looks interesting!

I second this. I'd especially like to know about the minis requirement.

Minis for your hero and 3 companions. Minis for creatures made up along the lines of what is seen in Frostgrave. Wilderness and ruin terrain for a 2.5 x 2.5 table. At least 2 x 20 sided die and a pack of playing cards. Encounters look typical of standard RPG for this size party with chances for creature reinforcements as the encounter progresses, i.e. starting with 3 - 4 and adding up to another 6 - 8 incrementally.

Any plans for a PoD?

Yes, it is being worked on now, though I can't say for sure when it will be ready.

For those of us that have bought the pdf, will we be given a discount towards the PoD? Normally I would buy the bundle deal print + pdf. Will this be available in soft and hard cover?

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.
