Shadow of the Demon Lord Pregens – Expert, Novice, and Starting

Bones for the Demon Lord!

As you may know this month I’m hosting the RPG Blog Carnival. The theme is “Homebrew Holiday Gifts,” and I’m asking bloggers everywhere to share their RPG creations for their favorite systems with me. At the end of the month I’ll make a list linking all participating blog posts so everyone can checkout the fine homebrew creations in one place. That brings me to my first entry for the month – Shadow of the Demon Lord pregens!

I recently played a wonderful game of Shadow of the Demon Lord. Game designer Rob Schwalb has put together an amazing RPG with fun, easy-to-learn rules. At first glance this appears to be a simple dark fantasy tabletop RPG (which would be awesome by itself), but read beyond the table of contents and you’ll find it’s a world of deliciously wicked rules that twists tropes and archetypes you know well into something original and different.

You can hear more about Shadow of the Demon Lord in the Gamer to Gamer podcast I recorded with Rob back in March when his (super duper successful) Kickstarter launched. Since then he’s published the core rulebook and a ton of adventures by many amazing designers you can buy.

I noticed that since the game is new there aren’t many pregens online, so I made a few of my own. Below are pregens for starting (level 0), novice (level 1), and expert (level 3) PCs. You can always grab these pregens on the Free Game Resources section of the site.
