Combining elements of horror and fantasy, Conspiracy of Shadows is a game with a lot of possibility. It delves deep into a medieval world full of intrigue, corruption and mystery. This medieval world is modeled after our own history, yet has a completely fictional setting. This allows those playing CoS much more leeway when forging adventures and entertaining stories. Since they are not restrained by historical fact, they can alter governments, claim lands of their own and write their own history for future generations. Fans of medieval and dark fantasy RPGs should pick up Conspiracy of Shadows. It provides the tools for hours and hours of game play and tons of possibilities. The ability to create your own conspiracies and not be tied into one specific plot allows Game Masters to customize each game to the players in the group, run multiple Conspiracy of Shadows games without retelling the same story, and introduce a variety of myths and legends with ease. There is a monthly e-zine called ¿Exposing the Shadows¿ that expands the material and offers more ideas for running Conspiracy of Shadows as well.
