Journeys in Shadow

Journeys in Shadow


This unofficial installment of Poisoned Pages adds new options for your Shadow of the Demon Lord games, especially those that focus on overland travel, long journeys, traversing lethal terrain, making camp, and simulating the stressors of adventuring life. It's a little bit Darkest Dungeon, a little bit Forbidden Lands all brewed to work in your travels throughout Rûl!

All of these mechanics can be used individually or in groups and function on their own so you can easily pick and choose which ones to add to your game.

  • Expanded Overland Travel Rules  A new system for tracking time while traveling as well as new terrain definitions and the specific bonuses and penalties incurred when traversing them.
  • Surviving the Elements  A new Exposure Test mechanic ties directly into the other rules presented within and will put adventurers to the test as they navigate the perilous landscape.
  • Camping & Camp Activities A set of tasks characters can participate in when resting or camping to further define their travels. These activities provide the opportunity for potential benefits and complications.
  • Exhaustion Rules – A new mechanic detailing the physical manifestations and penalties of pushing a character’s physical capabilities to the limit.
  • Starvation Rules – A new mechanic detailing the physical and mental manifestations  incurred by when a character’s body is deprived of sustenance.
  • Deprivation Rules – A new mechanic detailing the physical and mental manifestations and penalties incurred by when a character’s body and spirit are deprived of rest, sunlight, or companionship.

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.
