The Shadowfell is the dark echo of
the mortal world, a twilight realm that exists “on
the other side” of the world and its earthly denizens.
Legend has it that an otherworldly dimness
arose around the remnants and tatters of the raw
stuff of creation. Over time, these shadows coalesced
and assumed a form similar to the natural world,
but darker, more ominous, and thrumming with a
strange and unexpected power. This murky land
spawned beings of its own and drew others from different
parts of the cosmos. It came to be filled with a
diverse population of creatures, fair and foul.
The Shadowfell is more than just a mirror, even
as darkly cast and twisted as it is. This plane is the
destination of souls loosed from their bodies. It is
the domain of the dead, the final stage of the soul’s
journey before moving onto the unknown. For this
reason, the Shadowfell draws the attention of any
with an interest in death. The power and allure of
this place even drew the Raven Queen from the
Astral Sea to take residence among the spirits, to
govern them, and to monitor their movements as they
await the inexorable pull of dissolution.
