Looking for Volunteers for UKGE 2018 & Gen Con 2018

Hello everyone,

As you may already know, there will be a Shadows of Esteren booth at UKGE 2018 in England and at Gen Con 2018 in the US, which will be run by some members of the team.
However, these big game conventions are a lot for a small team to handle, which is why we are going to need some extra support... a support which YOU may provide!

Running the Booth

You'll have to do what you must have all seen booth holders do: stick around, be all smiles, and be ready to provide a rundown about the universe and answer questions!

► You will remain with us at the Shadows of Esteren booth for the most part of the days. You will be given one hour or two to go around, grab a bite, chat with friends, check out other booths, etc. but we will be counting on you to stay with us most of the time.

► Since the books we've released so far will be our main products, you will be expected to have reliable knowledge about them, so that you can describe them and answer questions about them, the most important one being of course Book 1, the core book.

► What's in for you? You will be given some gift at the Shadows of Esteren booth, and you will be cordially invited to come with us at the end of the day for a few drinks and some merry chatting. You also will get a precious exhibitor badge.

And of course, once more, only offer your help if you are certain that you will be available. Not getting any help would be a bummer, but being promised help that will not come in the end would be a major pain in the butt.

That's it! If you wish to volunteer for a convention, please fill this form and we will get back to you.

For any additional information, do not hesitate to contact us; we'll do our best to provide complete and reliable answers. We hope that we'll have the pleasure of having some of you by our side!

Ticket Sales Open For Shadows of Esteren Concert at the Internationale Spieltage SPIEL - FRI 27th OCT 4PM

This October, enjoy a unique classical music concert at the International Games Event SPIEL! You can book your ticket on Ticketbud. The singer Clarisse Mây and four musicians will be performing Shadows of Esteren’s fourth album: ADELIANE. As of now, this concert is a one-time-only event in Germany.

ADELIANE is a music album inspired by the universes of Philip Glass, Agnes Obel, and David Darling. It is one more window to the universe of Shadows of Esteren, a medieval world filled with dark romanticism, where ghastly horror and awe-inspiring beauty go hand in hand. ADELIANE is composed by François Rousselot, the composer of the OST of MR HUBLOT, which won the Oscar for best short animation in 2014.

The SPIEL concert will feature special guest Benjamin Loomes, renowned composer and creator of Syrinscape, the award-winning sound app for tabletop games, who will be filing the venue with the sounds of vicious storms, vast landscapes and other moody environments.

Note that you will need to attend SPIEL to enter this concert, as it will take place in the Saal Europa room, located inside the Messe Essen convention center.

We are back from Gen Con and it was intense. We lived unforgettable moments.

Thank you to all the people who came to see us and to participate to make this edition an exceptional year! This edition was our sixth year and it is also friends that we found there: we miss you already! We fell so lucky and we are already looking forward to next Gen Con. Our next conventions abroad will be the Spiel in Essen, Germany and Dragonmeet in London, UK.

Such great memories, thank you everyone for your goodness, all the members of our community, so supportive and kind. Thanks so much to our volunteers for their generosity.

Thanks also to the UKGE and Syrinscape crews. And of course many thanks to our composer François and all the musicians who made the live concert Adeliane happen ! We will never forget this unique evening.

A Brand New Portal For Shadows of Esteren's Website

After years of loyal service, the Shadows of Esteren portal is due for an overhaul! You can find the new version here. Developed by Pierstoval, the creator of Esteren maps, and co-designed with Nelyhann, the portal’s characteristics are as follows:

- Those used to the old version will be in familiar territory. This portal is organized like the previous one, with links to the various aspects of our transmedia project.

 - By registering on the website. You can use the Esteren maps online software, a Google maps-like application for the peninsula of Tri-Kazel.

 - We are still working on an online shop, but it will come. Promise! - You can listen to Esteren’s OSTs on Soundcloud, download Book 0 directly, and access many other handy subjects and features.

Enjoy and feel free to give us your feedback :)
