“History is a lie. Many men have said that history is written by those who achieve victory. The truth is that history is written by those who want to hide the truth from the fragile minds of humanity. Why, you may ask? If humanity knew the truth about the world around them, it would truly drive them insane. The mind of the average citizen cannot fathom the powers that lie just beyond their reach; nor do they possess the willpower to steel their minds from the horrors that surround us every day.”

- Grand Inquisitor Black Steel

Few understand what lurks within the shadows. Their knowledge, however, is key to humanity’s survival. For thousands of years, humanity has been fighting a battle with the occult and the horrors from the Chaos Realm and other Mortal Realms. Sometimes they win, sometimes they lose, but the war never seems to end. As time moves on, humanity became stronger, able to stand against those wishing to enslave or kill them. However, to do this, almost everyone would have to think these horrors do not exist. It is the books of history that reflect this change from knowing to disbelieving.

Shadowed Earth is a fantasy horror alternate history setting that spans all time. It takes the folklore, mythology, and legends of old and makes them real. It then combines those with elements of horror to make it more dangerous. This is the core setting guide, establishing the framework and canon that makes-up all of Shadowed Earth. It is written as an all-encompassing setting for Mystical Throne Entertainment’s various RPG settings and fictional offerings and is presented with no particular system in mind. You can use this book to expand your Shadowed Earth games, create your own Shadowed Earth settings, or plug-in various modules, placing them in the alternate history of Shadowed Earth (such as the Ultimate Roman Legions Guide and Ultimate Three Kingdoms Guide).

The Shadowed Earth core setting guide includes:

  • A narrative retelling of all major historical events within the Shadowed Earth alternate history.
  • A journey from Prehistory to the New Age, defining the major movements of the Occult and the Inquisition.
  • An introduction to the major organizations: Inquisition, The Fallen, Illuminati, and the Occult.
  • A small GM’s Guide for how Game Masters can incorporate Shadowed Earth into their games.

The truth may be more dangerous than the lie…

Shadowed Earth has been updated to the Revised 1st Edition.

I finally got around to read through this setting book - 110 pages of pure setting information takes a while to get through. The book starts with a small introductory story that continuous along through each chapter. In fact the setting informat [...]

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
