 Low Country: Lands in Shadow for Shadow of the Demon Lord

Low Country: Lands in Shadow for Shadow of the Demon LordAn imperial backwater by almost any definition, Low Country earns its importance by being the Empire’s breadbasket. Widely regarded as a sleepy place where little happens, Low Country hides its share of secrets and intrigues, especially now as the Empire unravels.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of halfling settlers, Low Country has shaken off its origins as an uninhabited wilderness to become an agricultural powerhouse. Ostensibly still loyal to the Empire, despite the orc-king Drudge sitting upon a usurped Alabaster Throne, Low Country’s hard-working halfling farmers continue to keep the rest of the Empire fed. For how much longer, no one knows.

Low Country, a new entry of the Lands in Shadow series, reveals details about a crucial imperial province and offers a closer look at the peoples, places, and circumstances that make up life here. Whether you use this supplement to expand your knowledge of the continent of Rûl, to draw inspiration for characters hailing from these lands, or to use it as a backdrop for your campaign, Low Country proves an excellent resource for your Shadow of the Demon Lord games.

Uncommon Courage: Victims of the Demon Lord

Uncommon Courage: Victims of the Demon LordIn a world beset in deepening shadow, with the constant threat of rampaging beastmen, ravenous ogres gorging themselves on whatever they can catch, and weird monsters creeping in the gloaming searching for prey, the gentle and bucolic halflings seem almost out of place. A people famous for their good-natured manners and peace-loving ways, as well as their uncanny luck, halflings have done their best to avoid the troubles in the world, keeping fast to the idyllic lands in which they have settled.

But in these troubled times, such isolation is becoming increasingly impossible. If any people would hold onto their customs, their ways of living, and, indeed, their very families, they must stand up and be counted, and take up arms in the struggle against the evil unfurling its wings across the world. Despite the fortune that has blessed them, the halflings are no longer an exception to this.

Building upon the information found in Demon Lord’s Companion, Uncommon Courage provides new details about halflings by describing them as a people, giving details about their lifestyles and homes, and discussing how they fit into the wider world, so that players and GMs can make the most of this interesting and compelling ancestry.
