|Shadows of Esteren by Agate RPG/Forge Songes
Drawing inspiration from Celtic myths, this
universe has a discreetly fantastic side
hidden under a bleak, realistic surface. This
world is populated with humans who have
to cope with tough daily lives, and face a
supernatural threat lurking in the dark. With
the focus of its adventures being
investigation and survival, Shadows of
Esteren is a game that favors an immersive
mood and interactions among the Players.
This particular atmosphere is drawn from
several sources of inspiration: the
harshness and romanticism of Mel Gibson’s
Braveheart; the universe of Tim Burton,
particularly the one of Sleepy Hollow;
Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaä of the Valley of
the Wind and Princess Mononoke; as well
as Berserk, the manga by Kentaro Miura.
