About

In The Dark Forest, you will be able to go beyond your table because you will meet other heroes  from around the world at  "The Mirror" tavern, an online community  where players lost in the Dark Forest are able to meet together. You  will find valuable information from other players living beyond your  known boundaries of the forest.  There will be different chapters one, 1a, 1b, 1c and 1d this means that you will receive from 180 to 230 full color pages.

You receive new content as you talk to people in the tavern, old stories, maps, gossip... For example, you found a partially burned book but you need the full book, then you can look for someone in the tavern to help you.

The adventurer's journey through The Dark Forest begins under the shadow of an oak and on the wings of an oath.

The Dark Forest is a Shining Armour Games 5E RPG  persistent world (lvl 1-20).


There is a wide range of dark options for the encounters, like night goblins, mirrors, black magic, cold iron...

Night Goblins

A fog portal has just appeared around a mystical stone circle somewhere in time and strange things have begun  happening around its boundaries, dark things are coming out from the fog...

Beyond the portal, the Dark Forest lies eternal, keeping ancient secrets whispered through the trees by the winds of magic. Will you be able to hear them? Certainly some dark creatures like vampires are able to do so.




Much dwell in the depths of the forest

In The Dark forest, using mirrors at the tavern you have the option to meet other  heroes that, like you, are also lost. It is a place  where you can listen to blabs and bards. Or you can even be one of them.

If you are playing for example chapter 1a, you will need to talk with people who has received chapter 1b, 1c or d or has information you need.

 The story and art will be created by myself, Quico Vicens-Picatto. Shining Armour Games is one of my new creations within a  background of illustrations published by companies like Adventureaweek,  Pelgrane Press, Kobold Press, Holocubierta,Yotambiénsoyunfriki or NSKN Games.


The Tavern: There are taverns all around the forest, when you find one, you can get in and talk to other players like you.

Optional original sanity system, you will fight with mind, body and spirit.


The Dark Forest is a magic place and elves know it


The world will be built by chapters.I will deliver each chapter when completed, what we are funding here is a series of chapters with stretch goals.  

 Available in english and spanish.
