Savage Age of Shadow

The Savage Age of Shadow is a pet project to bring the world of Aryth and the Midnight campaign setting created by Fantasy Flight Games to the Savage Worlds games. The lands of Eredane have fallen to the orc hordes, minions of the Shadow in the North. The banished god, Izrador, having corrupted the very magic meant to imprison him has cut the world off from the other planes. Having failed in his first two attempts to take the world by force, he conquered it by corrupting men and sowing seeds of suspicion and mistrust. Now, his word is absolute and the orc warlords he commands brutally enforce his will. Magic and literacy is outlawed. Worship of other gods is punishable by death. The human lands of Eredane are conquered, dividing the dwarf clans in the east and the elven forest strongholds in the west. But men are resilient and a resistance is growing.

What follows is a (very) brief introduction to the setting and the basics of what players need in order to create characters in Midnight. For complete information on Aryth, the world of Midnight, you should pick up the Midnight 2nd Edition from DrivethruRPG.

The Resistance

I started putting together a one-shot adventure to run at RinCon 2017. I've been focused mostly on the adventure, so much so that I almost forgot I needed to create the pre-generated characters. These are a bit rough and will be fluid as I continue working on the adventure (and hopefully after the…
