Shadow of the Demon Lord

Significant changes to Weapons (and Attacks) and Spells (and Spell Attacks) so you will likely have to redo your items, spells and re-add them to your character sheets. We have submitted 3 Core Products and 20 adventures to the store today!

This (WiP) is a basic ruleset for the fantasy RPG Shadow of the Demon Lord which can be found here: for about $19. You will need the Full Rules or at least the Players Guide.

The ruleset is playable at this time but there is still plenty of work to do. Help from the community in testing the ruleset and providing direction and feedback would be greatly appreciated. I need interested parties to subscribe to the Forge entry and share the experiences and ideas with me on the forum page.
