The Translation of Shadows of Esteren is Coming out this Summer
Agate RPG, Forgesonges, and Studio 2 Publishing have announced the release of the Core Book for the role-playing game Shadows of Esteren, just in time for Gen Con Indy 2012.
Shadows of Esteren is a medieval role-playing game, with an emphasis on the horrific and the Gothic. Drawing inspiration from Celtic myths, this universe has a discreetly fantastic side hidden under a bleak, realistic surface. This world is populated with humans who have to cope with tough daily lives, and face a supernatural threat lurking in the dark. With the focus of its adventures being investigation and survival, Shadows of Esteren is a game that favors an immersive mood and interactions among the Players.
This particular atmosphere is drawn from several sources of inspiration: the harshness and romanticism of Mel Gibson’s Braveheart; the universes of Tim Burton, particularly the one of Sleepy Hollow; Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicań of the Valley of the Wind and Princess Mononoke; as well as Berserk, the manga by Kentaro Miura.
Shadows of Esteren is a French role-playing game designed by Forgesonges, a collective of authors and illustrators, whose original version was published in September 2010 by editor Agate RPG. The translation of the whole series in English is planned. To celebrate the birth of Esteren on the other side of the Atlantic, the developers are currently working on the construction of a Kickstarter project with exclusive additions. It will be launched at the end of the month of June.
