from the Conspiracy of Shadows website
Conspiracy of Shadows is one part art project, one part imagined historical fiction, and one part role-playing game. The game was originally published as a role-playing game in 2004. Since then a series of games have come out under that name, for which Conspiracy of Shadows website has become the hub.
Like a living thing, Conspiracy of Shadows has evolved over time, leading to notebooks filled with people, places, maps, illustrations, and ideas. Now that material can be found at the website as well as new games and products for purchase.
