Shadows of Esteren is a medieval role-playing game, with an emphasis on the horrific and the Gothic. Drawing inspiration from Celtic myths, this universe has a discreetly fantastic side hidden under a bleak, realistic surface. This world is populated with humans who have to cope with tough daily lives, and face a supernatural threat lurking in the dark. With the focus of its adventures being investigation and survival, Shadows of Esteren is a game that favors an immersive mood and interactions among the Players.
This particular atmosphere is drawn from several sources of inspiration: the harshness and romanticism of Mel Gibson’s Braveheart; the universes of Tim Burton, particularly the one of Sleepy Hollow; Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Princess Mononoke; as well as Berserk, the manga by Kentaro Miura. Regarding role-playing, Shadows of Esteren would be somewhere between Ravenloft and Call Of Cthulhu.
Today, a Kickstarter will be launched in order to introduce exclusive content for the English release of Shadows of Esteren. For this very special occasion, we wish to offer you the best edition possible! This Kickstarter will be accessible to all role-players throughout the world (Shipping costs included worldwide for all the pledges), and will last until the end of July.
This is beautiful and you should support it if you are a tabletop gamer and able. The prices already include international shipping, so it doesn’t matter where you live. The French make the most amazing RPG systems, so combine that with the stunning art of this one and you can’t go wrong.
