We are thrilled to announce that Ra Press is developing the War Codex for Shadow of the Demon Lord! For those of you who are not familiar with the War Codex, it is a mass combat supplement that has been in development for some time now.
After some discussions with Rob Schwalb, the creator of Shadow of the Demon Lord, we learned that the War Codex had been scrapped. But, since we had already been working on a similar system, we thought it would be a great opportunity for Ra Press to take over the project, and Rob agreed.
The War Codex introduces a number of exciting new features that will allow you to customize your army and engage in dynamic, immersive battles. We are aiming to design the mechanics to be easy to learn and use, but deep enough to provide endless possibilities for experimentation and strategy.
One of the main things we are doing with this supplement is splitting the rules into three scales of battle: group, company, and army. The group scale will focus mostly on battle-centric group encounters, the company scale will allow for more detailed control of companies using actions and formations, and the army scale will be perfect for quick battle resolution when you don't want to spend time on warfare in your campaigns.
We are thrilled to be working on this project and can't wait to share it with you. Our patrons can already follow the development of the book in real time on our Discord server. And we will also be updating you all here on our website, on Patreon, and through our newsletter.
Stay tuned for updates and sneak peeks as we continue to develop the War Codex for Shadow of the Demon Lord. We can't wait to see how you use these rules to build and lead your armies to victory!
