Skuggornas värld, or World of Shadows, is the official game setting for En Garde! III, Pirater! and Skuggornas mästare from MylingSpel. The coming boardgame Privateers! from MylingSpel will also be placed in this setting.
The world is our own, at least at a glance. Most myths and legends contain some thruth, though. And many theories and rumours about aliens and the supernatural are more real than most people are willing to believe.
Mighty kults and organisations are trying to rule the world from the shadows. Supernatural creatures hide in the dark, and sometimes even in plain sight. They are trying to co-exist with the humans, or are waging a hidden war on them.
Aliens are watching and experimenting on the people of Earth. To further their goals they have infiltrated governments and mighty orgnisations.
Time travellers from Earth's future are doing their best to save mankind and stop time travelling criminals. They are fighting a losing war, though, since Earth is already destined to be destroyed.
Outside the universe, and even outside the multiverse, are the Elder. They are watching and trying to gather worshippers to be able to feast on their souls when they die. They are using the mortals, whole worlds and the younger gods as pawns in their conflicts with each other.
