Description Edit | History

Schimmen en Schaduwen, which translates into 'Shades and Shadows' is set in the world of Dor.
It was the first Flemish fantasy RPG (published in Dutch), created in the late 1980s, by three RPG fanatics.

Inspiration was found in games such as Runequest and Warhammer FRP. The trio called themselves 'The Wise Tree' (not 'The Wise Three', although this was obviously a pun).

The first edition (1988) of their game was a rather hefty book (over 300 pages) of which only 75 copies where printed. The book had a black cover, with a yellow pentagram as a picture. A few sample copies with a white pentagram were produced as well.

In 1990 an improved version of the game came out, mostly by request of new fans of the game. The cover of this version was green colored. Two years later another edition was printed, with a red cover. This time 400 copies were printed.

Several supplements were also produced: Sagen & Legenden I, Sagen & Legenden II, Duistere Catacomben I, Duistere Catacomben II, Het Symbool van Crann.

All the original versions are out of print, obviously, but you can download the latest version now, courtesy of The Wise Tree.

More Information Edit | History

Although there have been various versions of the basic rulebook, they are usually grouped as follows:

  • 1st edition rules, published with a black cover (either with a white or yellow illustration). These were first published in 1988. This edition has one supplement, "Het Symbool van Crann"
  • 2nd edition rules, published with a green and subsequently red cover. The rules are updated, artwork is significantly improved. There is no further difference between the green and red cover publications. This edition saw several supplements: Sagen & Legenden I (blue cover), Sagen & Legenden II (yellow cover), Duistere Catacomben I & II (white covers), and a GM's screen.
  • After The Wise Tree stopped developing further products, the game was made available online in the late nineties. A seperate version of the basic rulebook was put together, which can be considered a 3rd edition, although no major rules changes were made compared to the 2nd edition.

All rulebooks and supplements were never extensively sold in gaming shops. Most sales were at gaming conventions, or through postal order.

A limited amount of additional material was also published in issues of the magazine 'De Goblin Tribuun'.
