Brelindia is gothic fantasy, horror trappings mixed with the kind of heroism peculiar to D&D. It’s Ravenloft and Castlevania and Vampire Hunter D and Sleepy Hollow, a place where a fantasy version of Hellboy or Dan Brereton’s Nocturnals could take place. The forests are thick, the settlements small and scattered. The lords and knights of the land may stand against the darkness, or they may be the darkness.
It’s a dangerous, enigmatic land. The people here have to fight hard just to avoid succumbing to the shadows. Some fight even harder.
