Now I raise my eyes and hands to the tower
and my heart is empty
for it has been given to my dark lord
in his wisdom, endless
in his might, eternal
in his hatred, glorious
these blessings I accept and cherish.
--Prayer to Izrador, the Dark Lord of Eredane
Fantasy Flight Games continues to support its award-winning campaign, Midnight, with this sourcebook on the heart of shadow and the men of evil who dwell there. City of Shadow takes the reader into the high temple of Izrador, investigating everything from the black-walled tower’s highest tiers, where well-educated and thoroughly evil priests debate over the best way to enact their Dark Lord’s will, to the sprawling remains of the once-majestic human city beneath it, where slaves and rebels cower in the shadow of the dark keep. Specific NPCs and locales within the city and the temple are detailed, offering everything from statted opponents to adventure seeds. Finally, the book includes a section giving advice on how to incorporate Theros Obsidia into campaigns, on how to run an evil Midnight campaign, and providing new prestige classes and spells specifically for legates.
