From Beyond This World: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord

From Beyond This World: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPGIt usually begins with random dissections of farm animals, such as pigs, cattle, and even horses. After that, the children go missing—the foolish or the unwanted, the strays and orphans who won’t be quickly missed. Soon, though, they’re found in the same condition as the mutilated livestock, precisely divided into so many oddly shaped parts, spread out and arranged in mysterious patterns, the cuts and slices impossibly neat, well beyond the skill of the finest chirurgeon in Rûl.

For those few who know the meaning behind this, the strange, bloody remains are an obvious sign: the reen have arrived, with an obsessive curiosity that drives them to brutal and horrific experimentation on the denizens of Urth.

From Beyond this World joins other installments of Monstrous Pages by revealing secrets of some of the most notorious creatures found in the world. In the following pages, the reen receive extensive treatment, details that highlight their origins, activities, and new options to make them the perfect antagonists for your Shadow of the Demon Lord adventures!

Malicious Mischief: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord

Malicious Mischief: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPGScholars point those curious about the faeries and their ilk to old tomes whose parchment pages hold ancient stories and legends, but the best source of knowledge is the folklore hiding in plain sight. The weary midwife who mops away the tears after losing another beautiful babe to the Goblin King, the portly farmer who scratches his head in wonder over his singing swine, and the stable-boy who keeps an iron nail over his heart lest the pooka get him again—such commoners brim with tales, gossip, and first-hand accounts of the Fair Folk, for they’re the most likely to run across such beings in their day-to-day lives. As outlandish and strange as their customs might be, a traveler would always do well to listen and learn, for the faeries are a tricksy breed, filled with malicious mischief.

In Malicious Mischief, three new darkly humorous faeries join the ranks of the fey folk in this installment of Monstrous Pages. You’ll find everything you need to know to introduce welterkin, menhyads, and perookas into your games.

They emerge from the black pyramids rising up from the sands of the Desolation. They shuffle out of the dusty tombs of the irst People scattered across the continent. They stand guard over the ancient vaults that house dread necromancers of unfathomable evil and inestimable power.

These places, and many others throughout Rûl, bear the stain of dark magic, the very stones of their foundations pregnant with the filth of necromancy, giving birth to unspeakable horrors that hate light and life, driven by an unholy need to destroy.

Lords of the Barrows: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord

Lords of the Barrows: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPGThough the First People have vanished from the face of Rûl, their monuments remain. From the Northern Reach to the tangled woodlands of Balgrendia, one can find weathered monoliths scrawled with runes, standing stones arranged in circles, and other ancient markers that hint at the societies that once thrived in these lands. But the darkest and most sinister of these edifices are undoubtedly the barrows, for under these grassy hills sleep the dead. Although these tombs promise riches and relics, they also threaten death, for the dead lie in restless slumber and any intrusion can call their souls back from the Underworld to vex the living in bodies rotted and wrecked. And once roused, these barrow wights remain, eager to punish the living for the crimes of their ancestors.

Lords of the Barrows joins other installments of the Monstrous Pages series and examines the undead most often associated with the First People: the barrow wights and their many horrid minions. In the following pages, you’ll find details on these creatures, their legions, and their lairs.

False Lives: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord

False Lives: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon LordIn the years leading up to the orc uprising, the Empire saw incredible innovation, as constructs and other mechanical beings emerged. Although their creation was prohibitively expensive for large-scale manufacturing, wealthy individuals could commission such wondrous devices to toil in mines, haul cargo off and onto ships, and perform whatever other labors they commanded. In Lij, clockworks joined the ranks of other mechanical beings, but rather than be powered by magic or engineering, they derived mobility from souls anchored to their unliving components.

Although some believe these marvels to be recent developments, the methods of their creation can be traced back to antiquity, to the time of the Edene and older, lesser-known peoples before them. The dreaded prometheans and the unstoppable golems embody such ancient artifice. And though the means to produce such entities lies far beyond the abilities of most magicians, the mighty spells remain hidden in old tomes and in the notes of the legendary scholars of magic who pioneered their creation.

False Lives joins the other entries in the Monstrous Pages series, examining beings created by magic and imbued with sentience. Here you’ll find new lore and variants for clockworks, golems, prometheans, and other constructs for use in Shadow of the Demon Lord.
