The Stygian Depths is a supplement for the 28mm-scale miniatures game ShadowSea, taking warbands deep underground to battle in predator-infested caverns and ancient dungeons of serpent-men and their demonic allies. The game utilizes full-color map tiles, included in the rulebook, to map out the twists and turns of the catacombs. Click on the photo to go to the order page.

The rulebook comes as a full-color PDF file with 92 pages of dungeon exploration, requiring the ShadowSea main rulebook. ShadowSea is based on the award-winning Song of Blades and Heroes ruleset.

1. NEW CREATURES: Many new creatures are presented, living deep in the Stygian Depths, ready to consume the unwary adventurer.

2. PLAY TOGETHER OR SOLO: Players take their warbands into the dungeons and compete against the Game Master, who controls the layout of the map tiles and the actions of all of the stygian enemies. The game can also be played solo or warband vs. warband, randomly building the map and generating encounters.

3. WARBAND PROGRESSION: Warbands increase in power as they recover treasure and magic artifacts from the darkness. Upgrade individual models or the entire warband for the next adventure or for a campaign in ShadowSea.

4. FULL COLOR MAP TILES INCLUDED: A full set of cavern and dungeon tiles are included in the book so that players can simply print them out on paper or cardstock and get to gaming.

5. NEW MAGIC SPELLS: Elder magic spells can be cast from dusty tomes to imprison souls, make mirror images during combat, or turn enemies to wisps of dust. Alchemists create elixirs and tonics to help a model's abilities or cause debilitating trauma. Dreamwalkers can predict the plans of the enemy and interrupt their actions, and can shift reality to make their warband fade from view.

6. TREASURE! The Stygian Depths hold many secrets, and adventurers can discover new elder magical items to add to their arsenal of ether technology. Find many types of magical books, wands, staves, rings and weapons that can help send enemies back to the pits from whence they spawned.

7. NEW RECRUITS: Each of the six main forces of ShadowSea get new recruits with specialized skills to help battle in the darkness. New list of demons to torment adventuring warbands, or to be summoned by those learning the secrets of elder magic.

8. FLEXIBLE DESIGN: The rules can be modified to use in other games based on the Song of Blades and Heroes ruleset. Play with whatever 28mm scale miniatures are on hand or with official Dragonblood miniatures from Cavalcade Wargames.

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.
