For some reason, whenever I type out Shadow of the Demon Lord, I was to spell "demon" as "daemon". Maybe it is because I can feel the Warhammer influences to the game.
In any case, Shadow of the Demon Lord is one hell of a dark fantasy RPG. The core rulebook reads well, and it's a damn shame I've yet to get to play a session of it. For 9.95, the SotDL Starter Collection is a steal!
Hero! Through unholy rites we've resurrected (for a third time!) our May 2017 Shadow of the Demon Lord Bundle featuring Shadow of the Demon Lord, Robert J. Schwalb's tabletop fantasy roleplaying game of grim heroism against a cosmic destroyer. In this fast-playing, low-prep RPG, desperate heroes battle strange magic, unhinged cultists, and roaming mobs of undead while humanity's last great empire slides toward oblivion. If you love Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, the Ravenloft and Midnight settings, Joe Abercrombie's The First Law novels, or heavy metal music, get this revived collection of DRM-free .PDF ebooks and confront the Void That Hungers – or, as star designer Kenneth Hite describes it, "Pure Spikey Caustic Red-Hot Squirming Deliquescing Rugose Gonna-Bite-Your-Fingers-Off Horned Fetid Monstrous EVIL."
For just US$9.95 you get all five titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $42) as DRM-free ebooks, including the complete 278-page Shadow of the Demon Lord corebook, the Demon Lord's Companion, the Uncertain Faith sourcebook of divine magic, and the fine introductory adventure Dark Deeds in Last Hope – and the Demon Lord Screen gives you all the charts you need.
