Tome of Sorrows vol. 2: The Shadow Ascendant

Even the Mightiest of all Heroes can Fall…

The Shadow won, but even now, a hundred years after the fall of Erenland to the armies of Eredane there are still those who stand their ground and try to undo what careful planning has achieved. But the Shadow is prepared for those called heroes…

The second installment in the Tome of Sorrows series of netbooks for the award winning Midnight setting brings to you new tools and weapons to be used in the name of the Shadow in the North against the insurgence.

Inside this book you will find new prestige and legendary classes, a new core class, the Kurasatch Udareen, or mother-wives of Izrador, as well as more than 15 new Villainous Paths, over 30 new creatures and more!

Well, nagging me has actually been one of the things that kept me going all this time, and working on this thing was no easy task, as harrowed can say, he too took it and eventually couldn't keep going any more. I am happy with what we have, although i would like to improve certain parts of it I believe what is there is already good enough to be out. Smiley

Why is the download in "RAR" format?  Any chance it could be changed to "ZIP" format, for which free software is available in most if not all software platforms?  RAR decoders are only available in shareware applications, so far as I can tell.  (There are freeware RAR decoders that only support an older version of the RAR format.)

Nif,

It's a walk down memory lane seeing this stuff.  Outstanding work.  Some very nasty stuff here.  A great Xmas present.

Actually 3 years have gone since this baby got to my hands, or close to that, when I compiled the threads on the old site I already was in charge, I think the hardest part was to take a small draft i made for the introduction and turn it to the one you can see there. Laugh

I have to say it was a trip down memory lane for me as well, specially in this last revision of the content before releasing it. Remember when we did the new KU core class for the Tome, Dirigible? Man, 2nd edition was fresh in the market!

It'll take some time to read through it, but the table of content looks impressive and the books looks exceptional...

Thanks for all involved in this.

ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod!

I LOVE you guys!
Best present I've received this year! ...except maybe the nice fellow who stopped and used his truck plow to move the snow mountain at the end of my drive, so I could get out for work in the morning...

No, this is BETTER than that!

BWP,

I changed the download to point to the zip file instead of the rar, try refreshing your browser before downloading it (I just tested and it worked okay for me), if you encounter any problem, please contact me directly either by mail or PM. Also, take note that there are free programs to open rar files in Mac OS, here is a link to one of those: http://www.unrarx.com/

lilith,

Youa re in the credits too, mind you, but since I did not get your name to put there, you are merely listed with your userhandle. Enjoy the holidays, and the Tome!

I'm using Windows XP, and RAR is not a "usual Windows standard".  ZIP is (and has been for many, many years).  Although WinZip (the most common program) is shareware, there are numerous freeware implementations as well, and Windows XP will open ZIP archives without any additional software in any case.

RAR is (so far as I know) only available through shareware, as I mentioned previously.  Since ZIP serves my needs perfectly well, I have no desire to spend money on alternative compression software.

On the topic of rar:

I've been using WinRAR for a very long time now. Does both rar and zip files.


On ToS2:

Haven't read everything yet, but tis great... Some of those entries I have on my computer already from the old site, but it was nice to re-read them Smiley
