Make Lives Better through Role-Playing Games

“Horror of the Shade” is part of a larger movement to include those who have been excluded from the RPG and real-life communities. Wyrmworks Publishing uses RPGs to improve lives and provide tools, training, and a supportive community.

With this goal in mind, the adventure features disabled NPCs, reflecting the diversity of real life. By learning and growing, we aim to promote acceptance both within the RPG community and beyond.

This product uses disability mechanics from Limitless Heroics – Including Characters with Disabilities, Mental Illness, and Neurodivergence in Fifth Edition and is included with the full version of that book.
