Paths of Battle
Explore and Expand New Paths
Paths of Shadow is a series for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPG that is dedicated to exploring and expanding the paths in Shadow of the Demon Lord.
Bred for Battle
Bred for Battle builds on the warrior novice path presented in the main rulebook by providing new customization options for combat-focused characters. These options offer more variety in technique, reflecting the nature of a warrior’s training and providing inspiration for future development.
Called to Serve
Called to Serve explores the priest path in depth, offering guidance for why one might follow this path and the role one might play serving the gods. As well, this supplement includes a slew of new expert paths so characters can go on serving their gods as they did from the beginning and unlock new talents to better advance the causes for which their gods fight.
In Pursuit of Power
In Pursuit of Power offers magician’s spells much more flexibility and versatility. Now, magicians can swap out the talents they would gain from their novice path for those related to the traditions they’ve discovered. As a magician, your talents could reflect your growing mastery of your particular traditions, providing new choices and abilities beyond those available in Shadow.
Natural Born Scoundrels
Natural Born Scoundrels explores the rogue path in depth and expands the options available to players who choose it for their characters. Inside this supplement, you will find rules for playing academics, darksouls, and dogmatists, along with all the old favorites.
Paths of Battle
Finally, Paths of Battle introduces the knight, a brand new path for characters devoted to protecting the innocent and championing noble causes as the Shadow looms ever larger. Do you have what it takes to fight the Demon Lord with cold steel and gritty determination?
Paths of Conflict
Paths of Conflict presents a selection of weapon-focused expert paths that will help you achieve glory in Shadow of the Demon Lord. You can blast a hole through your enemies with pistols, shriek as you hack them apart with an axe, or, like a surgeon with a scalpel, take them apart, limb by limb. Take up arms and fight for the end of all things!
Paths of Darkness
Paths of Darkness, first of a two-part installment, presents a selection of dreadful master paths for use in Shadow of the Demon Lord.
Paths of Horror
Paths of Horror continues to explore vile and unsettling master paths to offer characters with little regard for themselves or others opportunities to attain might, fortune, and glory in the world darkened by the Shadow of the Demon Lord.
Paths of Iron
Paths of Iron introduces a set of expert and master paths that focus on iron and steel. The bulwark masters forging armor and bestowing on it special properties, while the fae scourge seizes upon faeries’ innate aversion to the metal and develops combat techniques to exploit iron’s influence on them. With the options presented in this supplement, your character can take the steps along the iron road.
Paths of Power
Paths of Power deals with the sorcerer, spellbinder, warlock, and wizard, and in most cases offers upgrades and enhancements to make them even more exciting to play. In addition, this supplement introduces a new path: the occultist, a dreaded devotee of dark magic, who peers into places others fear to look.
Paths of Purpose
Paths of Purpose provides options for players seeking to hone their expertise in new ways. Suitable for characters of all novice paths, Paths of Purpose helps ensure you can play the character you were born to play!
Paths of Science
Paths of Science adds new expert paths for characters ready to embark on scientific careers, such as a plague doctor, a maker of monsters, or even a reanimator. It also expands on the options for rogues with a set of new roguery talents that exploit scientific discovery.
Soldiers of Fortune
Soldiers of Fortune presents three new expert paths for characters with a martial bent. The bloodletter is a vicious brute who revels in carnage, while the commander can devise battle plans to secure a decisive victory. And for those who prefer to take shots from the back ranks, the targeter can transform any character into a deadly archer.
