I've heard it said among some that Shadow of the Demon Lord is what 5e was meant to be. Dark, grim, and deadly. I read through my dead tree copy of Shadow of the Demon Lord back when the game was released and although it looked damn interesting, my gaming group was not interested.
Shadow of the Demon Lord is a current bundle on Bundle of Holding. Actually, its two bundles, so if you can't get enough Shadow of the Demon Lord, this may be your lucky day :)
In the fast-playing, low-prep Shadow of the Demon Lord, 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 bundle 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$7.95 you get all five titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $41) 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 if you pay more than the threshold price of $18.80, you'll level up and also get this revival's entire Bonus Collection with six more delicious gobbets of evil worth an additional $51. What's in these sourcebooks? The titles speak for themselves: Hunger in the Void, Tombs of the Desolation, A Glorious Death, Terrible Beauty, and Exquisite Agony. Plus, Tales of the Demon Lord is a collection of 11 low-prep adventures across the Northern Reach, and the Demon Lord Screen gives you all the charts you need.
