A Land of Dreams and Darkness: Lands in Shadow for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPG
Balgrendia offers mystery and terror to all who find themselves there, infested as it is with wicked faeries, horrific demons loosed from the Void, and other twisted monstrosities that defy description.

Like other entries in the Lands of Shadow series, A Land of Dreams and Darkness provides you with the information to help bring the region to life, as well as providing players with the details they need to craft characters with backgrounds and connections rooted within the forsaken land.

City of Blood: Lands in Shadow for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPG
You hear the roar of the crowd before you can see any but the tallest towers. Closer, you see the city’s new outer walls, still half-built and swarming with workers sweating in the swampy humidity. Humans, dwarfs, orcs, and others besides, slaves and free, clamber over scaffolding as the black stone walls rise. Another cacophonous roar splits the air as you pass through the gate, its basalt exterior decorated with reliefs and statues of men and women, gladiators, spilling each other’s blood. The city is near deserted, its buildings of gloomy basalt and brilliantly painted wood and plaster facades empty except for patrolling guards and nervous would-be thieves. Everyone else, human and nonhuman, men, women, and children, are gone, gathered at the giant arena of the Crucible for the grand carnival of violence.
The distant crowd screams again. Welcome to Qif, the City of Blood.
