The Shadow of Yesterday (1st edition), hardback roleplaying game, by Clinton R. Nixon
“Runner-up for the best independent game of the year in the 2004 Indie RPG Awards!
The Shadow of Yesterday is a pulpy, sweaty role-playing game set in a world climbing back from the edge of destruction, filled with adventure, love, poison, sex, and true friendship. Inside you’ll find:
• How to make a character who advances for player-chosen reasons.
• Goblins that change their shape at will, and find their form through love.
• Broken lands at war, rich swamps full of poisoners and slavers, and a decimated people with incredible magic.
• Jungle-dwelling kayakers who have mastered the world of the dead.
If you’re ready to plunge into truly bizarre, fully human fantasy, you’re ready to play The Shadow of Yesterday. This game is recommended for ages 18 and up.”
