Dark Shadows is a role-playing setting in the world of Dunia in the RPG universe of Celenia. It is a non-traditional, dark-fantasy setting with unique species and rich lore. Dark Shadows uses the Celenia D10 RPG System and focuses on narrative over complexity and crunch.   Dark Shadows is low magic, feudal dark fantasy, heavily steeped in folklore.   This Worldanvil site is the RPG codex for the Dark Shadows setting. Here-in you will find a plethora of characters, countries and plots. This is your one go-to location for all things Dark Shadows. You want to deep-dive into this strange world filled with mystery, intrigue and horror? This is your place

A 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 claims its resources for themselves.   Old conflicts are left festering in the homelands as the lords and ladies of the world gaze towards a new horizon, leaving their people to toil in the dust. The old rivalries bubble under the surface and with the rise of a new ruler of the grand Empire of Kfandr, war has never looked as likely as now.   Celenia, however, is not what it seems 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...
October Announcement
Announcement: 2 Oct 2020

Summary
September felt like a non-month when it comes to productivity. Not a lot of things progressed, because of work and illness. In spite of this, we now have several new and updated articles available on CD10, including a reference document and I managed to get a proper magic system written up that can be used for any setting.   October
October I will devote to statblock work. I want to overhaul, unify and update all the statblock templates as well as delete the old item template that is a MESS and replace with several smaller, simpler to use templates. I've already updated the Skills & Traits template and created a new Basic Item template. Work will continue on that.   Patreon articles
With two patreon requested articles completed so far, I expect we're getting more during October. Stay tuned for those and consider becoming a Historian yourself, so you can request articles!
Celenia now has a unified place to access all the things with the url: www.celenia.se. It leads to the primary setting of Cinders of the Cataclysm, but the navbar can take you anywhere within the Celenia universe!   As always, I'll be livestreaming large parts of my efforts and if you haven't yet, drop by the streams (link below) and spend time with wonderful people in chat and have your questions about worldbuilding, game development, conlangs or roleplaying answered!   Patreon and Social Media
You can support Celenia on Patreon and get access to all the behind-the-scenes content available, get unique discord ranks and much more! Remember that CD10 Core is free to use, but that pledging on patreon gives you access to the advanced modules as well!   You can follow CD10 and Celenia on Twitter, join the official Beyond Reality Discord server as well as me on Twitch.tv where I share the worldbuilding and RPG-designing openly with you all every Tuesday and Thursday at 5 PM UTC.
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.
