Shards of Light & Shadow

Please note: Due to real-life priorities and over-extended myself I am no longer going to be running this game (choosing to focus my efforts on a single regular campaign, Undying Lands and the odd one-shot. It’s disappointing, but sometimes these things happen, I was lucky enough to play with an excellent group of players in this game and am saddened to be leaving it behind. As from 23/05/18 this part of the site will not be updated.


Shards of Light & Shadowis one of two occasional/monthly D&D 5E games that I am running. The main campaign begins in March 2018 with a world-building session happening in February. Games will be taking place once a month, on the second Friday of the month, running at 19:00 UK time for 3-4 hours with the sessions being uploaded to my YouTube channel shortly afterwards.

To try something a little different with this campaign, rather than me–as the GM–simply presenting a campaign world to the players or using an existing supplement, we ran a world-building session using a cut-down version of the Microscope RPG. This allowed us to create the world’s history as a group, I’ve used this history/outline to flesh out the world a little on these blog pages and we will develop it more in play.

You can find the Microscope created timeline here.

The games will be run using a combination of Skype and Roll20.
