The Box of Shadows is a campaign setting
for the Rules Light TTRPG MÖRK BORG.

"Hidden within the sprawling depths of Grift, an ancient object resides beneath hovel and market, below sewer and grate. Ashen salt water erodes its prison. Caves bore into the belly of the seaside city, exposing its void-like appearance. The Box Of  Shadows grows.

The dry cracked earth of the city now spews a scentless dark black fog. It settles in every crevice. Rumors of this substance taking form and hunting down those that travel without a lamp or torch have become ever more prevalent.

The Citizens of Grift have taken to leaving lamps burning throughout the night. Like children, they huddle together in the light’s warmth, waiting for this darkness to end."

This is a wonderful package bursting with goodness!

One wish, though - would it be possible to optimize the PDF? A 150 MB file seems a bit excessive. Cheers!


Thanks so much for the kind words! haha, yeah, that is an issue. I got a little crunched for time and did not optimize at all. I plan on it. I will also be adding bookmarks to the pdf for faster navigation. Glad your enjoying the book! Cheers!
