Midnight: 2nd Edition Core Rulebook


The classic setting returns!

FFG reprints and re-envisions the lands under the Shadow in this 2nd Edition of the award-winning world of Midnight. Midnight is an original d20 setting that pits the players against overwhelming forces of evil in a desperate fight for survival and freedom. There is only one god in Midnight, and it is the dark lord Izrador, the Shadow in the North. For centuries his twisted spawn have assaulted the free people of Eredane, and 100 years ago, he won. Now the land is his, the people are enslaved, and magic, weapons, and literacy are outlawed. Only the brave and courageous few dare to resist the Shadow.

This edition of Midnight updates the entire campaign to D&D v3.5, and includes all of the content from fan-favorite player supplement Against the Shadow. Additionally, over 40,000 words of new material will be added, including setting details regarding the orcs and legates who serve the Shadow and the desperate but capable Erenlanders who oppose them.


  • Updated classes, feats, and spell system.
  • Errata and setting updates as determined from years of in-the-market play.
  • New color and B&W art depicting the heroes and villains of Eredane, as well as showcase pieces of art from the original edition.

Just looked online and found the cheapest print copy is $250. A PoD hardcover would sell well as would PoD for the rest of the line.

I'd love to see a PoD options for this.
And a pair of PDF bundles would be great: one for the adventures and another for the other products with both 1e & 2e versions of the core included.

Alas, no. Unless you find a used copy somewhere.

Page 288, for the image of the witch taker. It is placed over the text and blocks off a decent portion of text.

This is something that should have been easily caught by an editor. I mean as a PDF you only need to Quality control ONE item. I don't know if i'll find more as i actually read the thing more closely but this was super obvious while i was just flipping through it.

What is this "no Fireball" effect on page 319 claiming you need to be level 5 to cast magic missle.
magic missle is a first level spell and a channeler gets one 1st level spell at level 1.

As far as i can see that means they can cast magic missle at level 1 because they should have enough spell energy to shoot it at least once. is there a part of this book that i have missed?

Forget this last comment of level 5 requirement. I get it. I don't agree with it entirely but you need greater spellcasting which has a requirement of 5th level.

It’s a low magic system is it not?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
