SettingA major wrench has been thrown in the political squabbles between nations on the continent of Arjin. With the discovery a new, unexplored continent, Celenia, nations are rushing to colonise the new lands and claim its resources for themselves. Old conflicts are left to fester in the homelands as the lords and ladies of the world gaze towards a new horizon, leaving their people to toil in the dust. Old rivalries bubble under the surface and with the rise of a new, ruthless ruler of the grand Empire of Kfandr, war has never looked as likely. Celenia, however, is not what it first seemed to be. The land carries dark scars of a terrible history, and with the greedy lords uncovering the overgrown ruins of Celenia, Dark Shadows have begun to spread...
How goes that saying again? It never turns out the way you planned it?
In short, April and May did not at all turn out as planned. I've had two of the worst months in my life, with multiple health-care visits and an ambulance ride.
But, I did get a lot of work done and revamped and rewrote every single sheet and block for CD10 to better behave on mobile screens and have a coherent artstyle.
I don't know right now what's up for June, but considering CD10 is picking up a lot of speed, with more people using it every day, the Keeper and Adaptation guides are likely subjects for June. I need to get these guides written so people can start running games and adapt their settings to the system.

Dark Shadows is a low magic, feudal dark fantasy world where three major species, collectively called the Kykr, form the dominating civilization on the continent of Arjin. The three species do not live separate from one another, but collectively they've spread to several countries, cultures and religions. They find comfort in their faith and nationality over racial boundaries.
