Shadowhold v. Shadowfell

Post by StatelyWayne » Mon Mar 23, 2009 2:03 pm

Sorry if this covered somewhere else on these boards -- a search has come up with bupkus:

Is the Shadowhold of "Sellswords of Punjar" analogous to the Shadowfell of Wizards of the Coast? Or are there supplementary materials from Goodman or others that flesh out this realm?

BTW, we're loving the oozing pus out of "Sellswords" (and Punjar in particular). Great setting, very vivid, loads of color, and more hooks than a tackle box!

I'm not sure what the official answer is, but in my campaign I used the Shadowhold as a location somewhere within Shadowfell. It's mirrored location is somewhere in Punjar, I'm not sure where but that will be for a later date ;)

Double great idea. Since "Shadow" seems to a tangible substance in this campaign, maybe Shadowhold is some kind of prison or storage closet for an ancient, forbidden creatures in Shadowfell. Maybe Shadow is aboriginal to the Shadowfell since before time, and was displaced by the forces of Undeath as the departed souls of earliest life needed somewhere to go... Anybody buying this? ;)

Rad. I picture an even more evil version of Punjar, ruled by some tyrannical necromancer and maybe policed by some type of dark warlock knights instead of the dragonne.

Maybe the Great Black Swamp in the Shadowhold is a vast swampy graveyard, an immense version of the City of the Dead in Punjar spilled out to cover the entire area.

I can totally picture it.

That'd be a pretty sweet mix with "The Outbreak" Campaign Arc idea in Open Grave.
