[Kobold Press] Book of Ebon Tides: 5th Edition enters the Plane of Shadow!


Recommended Posts



5th Edition enters the Plane of Shadow!


A realm just beyond the mortal world—seize magical power, play new heroes, and bring the secrets of the shadows into the light!




The Plane of Shadow exists beside the mortal world, one step beyond the veil—and  your heroes can enter this otherworldly realm of fey shadows, undead horrors, and wild adventure!


The Book of Ebon Tides provides a complete guide to the people, places, heroes, magic, and monsters of the Plane of Shadow, a land where fey magic, illusion, and trickery are as potent as steel.


From shadow goblins to ghouls, from elves to bearfolk, this is a world of mystery and enchantment. On the muddy black riverbanks and along alleys paved with bone, new heroes wander in the light of the moon, summon lunar devils, and battle in crumbling castles. 


Come explore a shadow world next door to every other, just one step down the shadow road. . . .

Very interesting. However, they don't ship to mainland Europe due to Brexit. The physical book would have been my choice if I had participated, so no options for me on this one. Makes the choice easier 😃

I’ve only been backing for PDFs due to the fact that I don’t want to deal with the global shipping delays anymore. I have their pocket edition Tome of Beasts, but ToB 2 I backed for the digital PDF and since I’m using an iPad to organize and run all my games now it’s less table clutter and a lot easier to manage.

New KS Update time!


Time to share a bit of something near and dear to many of our hearts: monsters!

Of course there are new monsters in the Book of Ebon Tides, and they're all beautifully illustrated by our cadre of super-talented artists. You're going to love them all. Here's a sampling of what you can expect:

  • Birch Sirens. A less common variety of treant, they are more malicious than their larger counterparts and delight in luring travelers deeper into dangerous woodlands with their haunting melodies.
  • Knights of Shadows. In service their liege lords, these fey these are glorified bruisers, dark reflections of the cavaliers who protect the material plane. They use their shadow-crafted weapons and talents to intimidate those around them.
  • Memory Thieves. These beings are trained to magically capture the memories and knowledge of other creatures (above illustration).
  • Molefolk. Very little is known about the secretive molefolk. And this reclusive race prefers it that way.
  • River Spirits. These fey guardians defend bridges and other crossing points over water.
  • Rose Golems. These constructs were crafted by the fey to watch over the verdant guardians that adorn their palaces.
  • And more...!

So many shadows to stab!
