Friends or Foes? A Game of Shifting Dangers

The Shadow Fey arrive and turn the city upside down—and their ambassador demands that the player characters explain themselves for interfering in a legitimate assassination! So begins the looking-glass adventure that takes Paragon-tier adventurers to the Plane of Shadows.

    This inventive take on courtly combat and sandbox roleplaying includes:
  • More than 60-location map of the Courts, fully detailed with 100+ NPCs
  • More than 40 combat and skill challenge encounters
  • Dozens of new monsters your players have never seen!
  • Demon lovers and dangerous liaisons for those who seek them
  • Jealous rivals, a quick-play dueling system, and the King and Queen of Shadows
  • New Status system to track player character prestige—and new Status powers!

Enter the world of shadows, and play 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons on a whole new level!

Well, it's my design, so I guess it's up to me to quote this review: "The guys at Wizards of the Coast could learn a thing or two about adventure design with this dark beauty."

As a former Wizard of the Coast, I think that's quite amusing.

If Wolfgang or anyone else from Open Design is passing by can you tell me if there are any plans to update this to Pathfinder? I've really enjoyed everything I've seen from Open Design and loved the bits and pieces I've seen about the Shadow Fey so will definitely be buying this. Before I committed to buying it I just wanted to know if it was coming out for any other systems too though.

Many thanks for any help you can give.

I also asked this at the KQ-forums and the general consensus was that more people would be interested in it and that Ben Mcfarland MIGHT do a conversion, but designer-wise, there was not much excitement about converting it. I'd also love a conversion of Lost City, btw., but not sure whether we'll get one.

Yeah both of them but especially this would be great to see converted to pathfinder.

I agree. I plan to run a truncated version of Courts of the Shadow Fay in my current pathfinder campaign.

Thanks a lot for the reply Endzeitgeist. I didn't even think to check KQ's website which is a bit foolish of me! I do play a bit of 4E as well as Pathfinder, so I think I'll just pick this up anyway. I'll mostly be getting it to read rather than play for now anyway, and maybe I'll look at converting to PFRPG if I do run it eventually.

Lost City looks very interesting as well. Open Design do a really great job with the flavour in their products I think, everything's very evocative.

I contributed a decent amount to this through the Open Design project. It would be a great PF module, as well. Wolfgang did a great job turning rough ideas and contributions into a solid project.

I imagine Pathfinderizing it would be too big a project for one soul, but maybe not. I should head over to the KQ forums and see if people are planning on doing this because I wouldn't mind helping.

There was plenty of excitement about it, because I love this adventure. I can just be subdued from lack of sleep. :) The conversion might very well be out there in works, but only Wolfgang knows for sure. ;) I know what I strongly suspect.
