Shadow and Fae is a game of Fairy Tale characters—from lowly peasants to stone dwarves and abandoned changelings—exploring a dark and treacherous land.

The Essential Rules fit on a single page, and are built to support traditional fantasy gaming, as well as encourage and support roleplay through the "Hope" mechanic, a unified Save/Metacurrency system that encourages players to pursue their character's passions.

I've been putting in hours and hours working on S&F for about 3 years now, and it has been a work of heart far more than a business, but I would like to take this book forward one more step, and that will require some serious time and effort. 

More than I can do in my free time, by far.

I want to get a Zine into the hands of the people. Not just one zine actually, but three!

  1. The Shadow & Fae Wanderer's Guide - This is the current book available now, but we're going to slip it into a fancy little dress and print it on something elegant and—dare I say it—a little sexy. I want this book to make people say, "Oh, this is cool." as they hold it in their hands and flip through the pages.
  2. The Shadow & Fae Referee's Handbook - This zine will contain as much GM advice as I can fit in 40 pages, including guidance on creating and running Realms, NPCs, Adventures, Monsters, and Treasure. I've already written quite a bit of this, but it exists dispersed in blog-posts and Google Docs, and really needs its own place.
  3. Inisval - A Land of Shadow & Fae - Last but not least at all, I hope to provide a ready to play adventure setting including a well-designed map, a unique, living, and improvable "home base" city for players, and 3-5 dungeons rich with monsters, secrets, hints of the past, and—of course—unique treasures. I really love the works of Brad Kerr, Gavin Norman, and Chance Dudinack, and would be thrilled to put something forward that is of their quality, but uniquely mine.

And of course, all of these works are intended to be OSR compatible. You can play Shadow and Fae with just about any existing OSR adventure, and likewise adventures written for Shadow and Fae will be largely compatible with other OSR systems.

If you're interested, you can support the process just by buying the game! I am also hoping to have some special backer offers up soon to "pre-order" the print edition.

If you have questions, feel free to ask in the Shadow and Fae 2e discussions section!
