A solo or cooperative tabletop miniatures game. Create your ranger by selecting stats, skills, equipment and heroic abilities. Then round up a group of companions and set off on a narrative quest!
A kingdom stands on the brink of destruction, as the vast realm called the Shadow Deep slowly swallows everything in its path. As the army fights to contain the tide of evil creatures teeming up out of the black clouds, the kingdom’s best soldiers, the rangers, must venture down into the shadows to gather information, rescue prisoners, and ambush enemy supply lines. It is a desperate fight against overwhelming odds, but every little victory brings another day of hope.
To get started with Rangers of Shadow Deep all you need is the ‘Standard Edition’ pictured here. This includes all of the latest updates to the game, as well as 17 scenarios. Although Rangers of Shadow Deep encourages players to use whatever figures they want, official figures are available from North Star Military Figures.
Listed below are all of the official publications for the game, listed in the suggested order of play.
