Shadows of Esteren: Book 2 - Travels

"Picture a peninsular with steep hills, thick forests that barely let the sunlight through, misty valleys, and fortresses clinging to the mountainside... and beyond the oceans, the vast and mysterious Continent. In such awe-inspiring landscapes, the Shadows of Esteren role-playing game will introduce you to a gritty realistic world where supernatural elements are never trivial or meaningless, and where med have to face fierce threats lurking in the dark."

Book 2 - Travels is a supplement for the Shadows of Esteren series and is intended for Games Leaders. 

The book contains:

Cartography - More than a  hundred noteworthy places in Tri-Kazel described through the notes of the Bard Aeldred Firdh, any one of these sites can be used as a setting for an adventure.

Adventures - Five canvases (short scenarios) depicting Morcail, Tarish, Magentiests, and Feondas, There is also a large scenario that will plunge the PCs into the heart of fanatically traditionalist community.
