Long before the Empire, created by the Kalasans after they stormed Rûl and wrested it from the clutches of the dread Witch-King, whose wicked legions had overwhelmed and plunged the continent into darkness, an ancient people known as the Edene ruled over the land. Like the Kalasans so many centuries after them, the Edene were also bold conquerors who arrived on the shores of the continent, fleeing the destruction of their homeland far across the Auroral Ocean, They arrived in Rûl, handily defeating the First People and their faerie allies who had called the continent home for centuries, and founded a new civilization in the ruins of the one that came before. The Edene claimed their empire would last a thousand years, but like so many fledgling empires since the dawn of time who believed the same, the Edene themselves were drowned in the ebbing and flowing tides of history, yet another civilization of grand ambition lost and mostly forgotten.

Ruins and remnants of the ancient Edene still litter the lands of Rûl. One can find their works across much of the Empire, from crumbling castles jutting up from the high hills of the Holy Kingdom, to broken statues and indecipherable cenotaphs scattered about the countryside surrounding Caecras.

A revealing glimpse into this civilization can be obtained more easily that one might think simply by traveling east to the newly independent kingdom that calls itself Old Edene. This entry into the Lands of Shadow series explores this kingdom, built in no small part upon the values, traditions, and cultural artifacts of the Edene civilization that once existed before it was nearly wiped out by the Witch-King. Here you will find information about the history, peoples, and major figures of contemporary Old Edene to help you explore these lands in your own Shadow of the Demon Lord campaign.

Kingdom of God: Lands in Shadow for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPG


You asked for it and now you have it!

We’re proud to announce that Kingdom of God for Shadow of the Demon Lord is now available in print exclusively from DriveThruRPG!


As the Empire crumbles, cultists emerge from the shadows to work their wickedness in plain view, the undead armies in the Desolation gather strength and numbers, and signs of the coming doom become more widespread. In these troubled times, all eyes look to the Holy Kingdom for salvation.

This holy land has been the spiritual heart of the Empire for centuries, shining like a beacon through the gathering darkness. Surely, of all places on Rûl, the Holy Kingdom should be the best hope for the future against the apocalyptic times being foretold in by the troubles besetting the land. Surely, the Holy Kingdom will rise to the challenge and gather to its banners the other provinces to crush the orc uprising and restore order to the land. Or will it?

Kingdom of God reveals the details of one of the Empire’s most important provinces, offering a look at its history, lands, and people. In addition, this entry in the Lands in Shadow series offers a selection of new paths for characters, whether in service to the New God or in opposition to the cult.

Snot and Stitches:
Victims of the Demon Lord

Snot and Stitches: Victims of the Demon LordStrange in habit, bizarre in appearance, notorious thieves, liars, and even murderers, goblins live on the tattered edges of civilization. Since being driven out from the hidden kingdoms, they have made their way in the mortal world. As exiles and freaks, goblins are tolerated—but only just. They make their homes wherever they can, whether in the forests and hills of the countryside or in the sewers and rubbish heaps of the cities.

Still, no matter how hard their lives or how filthy or foul their homes, goblins hold their heads high, knowing they are more than they appear. Goblins have the will and ingenuity to turn a bad situation to their advantage. They might be a wretched people, but they embrace their wretchedness. They seem to revel in squalor, never bothered by the muck and grime, nor do they shirk from foul acts to gather food, clothing, and shelter.

Snot and Stitches peers into the stinking and strange world of the goblins, revealing their origins and how they fit into the world. This supplement also offers detailed character creation rules to help you develop intricate backgrounds for your goblin characters.

Paths of Power: Magical Paths for Shadow of the Demon Lord Role Playing Game

Paths of Power: Shadow of the Demon Lord RPGA field of magical energy envelops Urth and spreads out across the cosmos. A residual force left from the act of creation that brought this reality into being, this energy is the cause of nearly all the strangeness found in the world: from the bizarre monsters spawned within the foul slicks pooling in caves deep under Blötland to the hidden kingdoms of the faeries; it is responsible for the floating lands above the Desolation and countless other oddities one encounters when traveling the lands of Rûl and beyond.

This energy has even been harnessed and channeled into the creation of artifacts and relics of wondrous and terrible power. More common, however, than all of these supernatural phenomena and wonders are spells: magical effects discovered, codified, and devised by those people who make a study of magic in its many forms. From the destruction of the fireball spell to the awful glory of hateful defecation, spells offer staggering power to those individuals with the patience, cunning, and will to learn them.

The Paths of Shadows series expands and updates certain paths from Shadow of the Demon Lord to create new variations and possibilities. 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.
