The World of Shadows is a freeform game that is driven by the players therein. There is no game master and the players dictate the actions and consequence. The only caveat to this is the player cannot dictate and action or consequence that involves anyone except themselves. The characters in the game do not have any special powers or anything of the sort. They are normal people through and through. That is not to say that powers and favours cannot be gained, but they must be gained through gameplay.

The world of shadow is not accessible to just anyone. The world of shadow is a living, growing thing. It choses who will expereince its embrace. Once within the world of shadow, none leave...ever.

In the realm of shadow nothing is as it seems. Things that are normal in real life are alienated in the realm of shadow. There are people there, but again they are shadows of their real selves. People who were once common friends and family, now have no idea who you are. Those who were hateful are now apathetic and uncaring. Those who were loving and caring and now cruel and vile. The world of shadow is a twisted mockery of real life.
