Shadowdark RPG Combines Classic Fantasy Gaming with Modern Features, Drawing Praise from Industry Experts and Excitement from Fans
Kelsey Dionne, the creator of The Secrets of Skyhorn Lighthouse, has launched a new non-OGl roleplaying game called Shadowdark RPG. The game combines classic fantasy gaming with modern features. It allows players of all ages and backgrounds to create a nostalgic-but-new adventuring system. The Kickstarter campaign for Shadowdark RPG has already raised over $950,000 out of its initial $10,000 goal.
Shadowdark RPG features familiar elements of classic fantasy gaming but is not a retro-clone. The game includes new design ideas that emerged in the last 50 years and combines the best concepts into a nostalgic-but-new adventuring system. The game also features fast and deadly combat, with low hit points and roll-to-cast spells.
The Kickstarter campaign for Shadowdark RPG also includes a premium version of the game. It’s bound in dark-green leatherette with a silver-foil imprint of Mordanticus the Flayed. The game has received praise from industry experts, including New York Times-bestselling author and award-winning game designer Matt Forbeck and Kenneth Hite, designer of QELONG & consultant on DUNGEONS & DRAGONS 5e.
For those who want to try the game out before pledging, a free quickstart kit is available for download. Shadowdark RPG promises to deliver a thrilling and immersive experience for both seasoned veterans and newcomers to tabletop gaming.
