Curse of the Spider Wood: Legacy of Shadow
As one of the last places to be encroached upon by civilization, much of the Northern Reach still remains unexplored, untouched, and wild. Many areas within it are dangerous simply by virtue of their isolation and the quirks of their landscape, but a few places are even more so, harboring old evils and a darkness that stained the world so long ago only the most ancient and studied historians and scholars can recall them.
One such place is the Spider Wood, a sprawling, thick jungle with a reputation so sinister, no woodcutters have ever dared to brandish an axe within sight of the place. But it’s not the trees nor the spiders for which the jungle is named that make it so nasty—it’s the demon buried within its heart.

Thousands of years ago on the continent of Rûl, the son of the Faerie Queen Titania defied his mother’s will by involving himself and his faerie followers in mortal affairs, allying with the First People to wage war against the invading Edene. Forever condemned by Titania as a traitor to faeriekind, the Betrayer, as he came to be known, turned to the Devil to bargain for his aid in defeating the Edene. But this deal proved to be a terrible mistake, as Diabolus dithered and balked at issuing forth his hogmen legions from Hell, giving the Edene God-Queen Umessa time to slay the Betrayer in battle and scatter the elf-lord’s followers throughout the continent.
In defeat, the Betrayer’s followers suffered the enormity of their leader’s bargain, finding themselves forever stained, sullied, and corrupted. Transformed into hideous thralls of Hell, these darklings have hidden in Rûl’s shadows, forced by the Betrayer’s pact with the Devil to corrupt and lead mortals into damnation. But as the Demon Lord’s shadow spreads over the Urth, these wicked faeries find themselves drawn out of their exile in darkness, either to take up arms against the common threat or to join forces with the Hunger in the Void to bring an end to their suffering.
Scions of the Betrayer kicks off a new series of supplements for Shadow of the Demon Lord that reveal the forgotten peoples, places, and relics littering the lands of Rûl. Scions examines the darklings, warped faeries forever bound to serve the Devil, and makes them available to players as a new ancestry and to Gamemasters as a dreadful new foe.
