Thank you! I'll keep an eye on this one, then. Smiley I far from own all the old d20 books, but I'm really hyped about this new edition. Smiley

Your best source for news is probably the Edge Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/edgestudioamerica

The last post from a couple weeks ago seems to indicate that a release before Christmas is "difficult", but they're going as fast as they can.

I followed up with balam personally, but just in case someone's making their way through the forums and has the same question, the Tome of The Shadow that I'm referring to is linked in this post: http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=2751.0

It's not a rulebook, but a brief alternate history of Eredane meant to make the players question if they're really on the right side of the fight should any GMs care to explore that concept.

hey balam, welcome aboard!

If you've got all the books from the 2000s and have raided the downloads section here, I think you have all the source material you're going to get until the D&D 5e Midnight books come out in hopefully a few months. There's plenty of fan-made content here in the forums that never made it into one of the Tomes you downloaded as well.

You'll be hard pressed to find any other sites or groups beyond this one and the small Facebook group of which you're already aware. As far as I know, they've all shut down.

Even Fantasy Flight seems to have taken down their old forums now that Midnight is in the hands of Edge (who does not have a site up yet) other than their Facebook page which does share snippets of the upcoming book:  https://www.facebook.com/edgestudioamerica

I'm happy to hear that there are still newcomers to this setting! I'll try to hop on here a bit more frequently in case you have any other questions!  Smiley

Hello Guys, new member here ;-)

I recently started a 5th edition campaign and im using Midnight for a change... loved the setting in the days and im really enjoying coming back to it.

I already have all the oficial books from the 2000ish and looted everything i could from the downloads section... is there any other fan made or third party material i should look for??

Im gonna do a Sandbox. So, the more material, the better... thanks for the advice guys.

Alternatively... someone can point me some other places midnight fans are discussing midnight things recently? couldnt find facebook groups or something newer....

I Appreciate any help you can give me. thanks guys!

I'd be interested if you guys want a Midnight GM. I used to go under the name yozizzo so some of you might know me as that. I was thinking of doing a Midnight adaptation of Shackled City, sort of a far-fetched adaptation to Midnight, and it'd probably be  rules-light or at the very least minus a grid, but 3.5. I've just been reading Shackled City a lot and a little bit of Midnight. Maybe we could do a PbP game on here (played a game with Bleak_Knight at some point, not sure if he's still around. But I found all the books cheap at Half Price Books!

I agree that a lot of the artworks are pretty bland and don't really capture the brutal, despairing, and desperate aspects of the setting... Except maybe for the Sarcosan which seems to capture the feel of Midnight.

I particularly dislike the Orc female they show because it displays a very generic fantasy Fighter archetype, when Orc females are supposed to be symbols of power within the orcish clan society.

I think it is perhaps lost in translation that the Midnight setting is one where the Evil God Izrador won the big war and the free lands are enslaved and the world has been being crushed under his servant's rule for 100 years.

Hey, no problem on slow response. I only sporadically hop on to check on things nowadays anyway.
What Chaotix said is a good point though, and I guess I didn't specifically call out the waves of lower level enemies. But yeah, 2nd or 3rd level enemies by the dozens. 4th or 5th level enemies are going to be mostly enemy command units or making up specialized tactics and kill squads. Anyone higher level probably has a name but at the level your PCs are at, even a lot of those people probably won't make it past round 3 of a combat.

But I suppose the idea to take away is that if the PCs are caught, think of using a bunch of these lower level enemies not as individual units but more of a story encounter.
Why are there 50 or so orcs/goblins/mercenaries making camp in this area? Do they have a train of prisoners with them? Is one of the prisoners someone they PC's know from a distant town or maybe an ally they met some time ago? Why are they here and what will the heroes do now?
The party's rogue/wildlander goes scouting ahead because they heard something and find 15 orcs and 5 irregularly dressed and equipped people who seem to radiate an aura of danger.
