Shadowfist / Feng Shui Links
Official Shadowfist Homepage
Various official things on Shadowfist, contests, previews, etc. Go here to
join the Secret War Society (of which I'm member #499, a registered
Purist...ph33r my 1337 gr00p th33r3 sk1llz!).
Durrell's Shadowfist Page
The old page has been rolled up into an archive, but he's got a short page
that's more or less active and discusses the joys of "Old School"
Stefan works on Shadowfist stuff, and his page is packed with info, both
behind the scenes and aboveboard. He'll also make Shadowfist cards of people
who send him pics and stats, as seen down in my Silly Card section where
Director Van Domelen can be seen (click on it to see it full sized).
Tricycle's Shadowfist Counters
This company makes laser-engraved acrylic counters for various games,
including little sets of faction icons to use in your Shadowfist games.
Update: They no longer list Shadowfist counters, but if you use the Contact
link you might be able to get a custom run or something.
Dave's Official Publications
I've been getting some articles published in various magazines and in
official Daedalus products, and will try to keep this section fairly
updated as articles I've sold actually show up. Z-Man Games has posted the
"Best Of" Silly Card List and my new Purist Silly Card List on the official
- "The Rule of Fives" - Scrye #11, pp 98-99, an article on basic deck
- "CHAR" - Back For Seconds, p 4. Short character piece on our
favorite demonic cyborg. A piece of "Embers of Memory" below.
- "Iron and Silk: Basic Shadowfist Tactics" - Shadowfist Players' Guide
vol 1, pp 9-13 (sidebar).
- Various color text in Year of the Dragon and Throne Wars (credited in
the YotD rulebook).
Reviews of various Fist and Feng Shui products. Take with a grain of salt,
since I'm in a few of these products.
Shadowfist/Feng Shui Fanfic
Some stories I wrote about some of the cards
- "Lone Wolf": What happens to one of the Lodge who is
forced by circumstances to enter the Netherworld? Starring Vladimir Kovalev.
- "Embers of Memory": Who says CHAR units have no soul?
Starring CHAR, Dark Traveler and Gadgeteer. Part of this story was used in
the Feng Shui product Back For Seconds, but don't take this complete
story as all accurate.
- "Things To Do In 1850 When You're Dead": A tie-in to the
official "Operation Killdeer" story. What went through the mind of one of
the combatants as he died? Starring Nirmal Yadav.
- "What's In A Name?": A vignette about a Silver Fist's
friends and how she got her nickname. Honorable Mention in Daedalus's
Second Shadowfist Fanfic Contest: Short-short Story Category.
- "Shifts": Flickers of memory as Carl Po goes from
BuroMil Grunt to BuroMil Trooper to Monster Hunter to TacOps commander, all
the while seeing his home Juncture slide downhill. Winner of Z-Man Games'
Second Shadowfist Fanfic Contest.

Power Counter: Reaper Miniatures' Shadowfist power counter from both
sides after I painted it. Not shown is the base, on which I painted the zero
gold with a red dot in the center, so opponents could more easily tell
where it is. Image button. NEW 11/9/02:
version reflecting a few more years' worth of painting experience. I
left the fist-symbol base alone, since that actually worked well the first
Ting Ting Action
Figure: I kitbashed a Ninja Psylocke action figure into this Ting Ting
figure (note: the Psylocke shown is a prototype from the back of the
packaging, and is different from the actual toy). I carved off much of her
purple hair and glued on the braided hair of the Cosmic Angela which I used
in an earlier project (Circuit
Breaker from the Transformers comic), filling in the gaps with structural
paint and painting it all black. The wristbands I made from Sculpey III
modeling compound, cured with a hair dryer. Her clothing was built up using
structural paint (a goopy acrylic paint which doesn't spread out on its own)
and details drawn over the paint with a technical pen. The naginata is from
a Ronin Warriors toy (the shaft is actually part of the plastic "waste"
holding the RW weapons) painted realistic colors. Because Ninka Psylocke has
black feet, I didn't need to paint them, and as a result Ting Ting retains
Psylocke's ankle joints and can flex those deadly toes. Finally, I decided
against trying to remove the upper arm bands from Psylocke, since I'd have to
file away too much of the muscle to do it (covering them with structural
paint would be a bad idea, since that doesn't dry smooth and would have left
Ting Ting looking like she had an even weirder skin condition).
A Matter of
Honor. When a member of the Lodge reverts to his more bestial ancestry,
however slightly, it is a thing of mortal shame, and only one chance remains
to regain the lost honor.... Lynxers click here to

He also has a Scrappy Kid sidekick, but I decided to ignore the kid.

Silly Shadowfist Cards!
Silly Card List v4.0
A general list of silly cards based on concepts and some parodies.
Netherworld Silly Card List
Parodies of many Netherworld cards.
Flashpoint Silly Card List v1.0
An as-yet incomplete list of silly Flashpoint cards.
Throne Wars/Year of the Dragon Silly Card List v1.1
Well, now Throne Wars and Year of the Dragon are out, so here's the silly
Alternate Throne Wars/YotD Silly Card List
I was digging around my old Shadowfist directory for an article I wrote, and
found a different version of the TW/YotD list I apparently wrote about the
time the set came out, but never moved to here. Well, now it's here.
Purist Silly Card List v1.0
Parodies of the Purist-faction cards from Dark Future, Boom Chaka Laka,
10000 Bullets and Red Wedding.
Seven Masters Card List v1.0
One of the more complete sets I've done, Seven Masters versus the Underworld
gets my parodic treatment.
Two-Fisted Tales Card List v1.0
I think there's only one or two cards from this set that didn't get some
treatment. The Marmojet got left alone, though. Why mess with success?
Feng Shui pieces
Here's some pieces I posted to rec.games.frp.misc back in the days of
Daedalus Feng Shui. I might add to them with new stuff later.
- The Chi Warrior: Back when only real geeks in this
country knew about Dragonball Z, I mixed Saiyans with the sample Critical
Shift from the main rules to get the dis-timed Chi Warrior archetype. I
think it works pretty well, although having Shaping from the start might be
- The Dabbler: A little of everything. Which, it turns
out, sucks in Feng Shui. Not a good archetype, but I present it for possible
interest. Might work for GMCs.
- Combat Moshing: A new Fu path based on actions in
the dance pit. Also useful for replicating the scene in Fong Sai Yuk where
they fight atop people's heads.
- Dance Fu: After I saw Romeo Must Die, I had to write
up some rules for modifying partner dance moves into combat.
- Purist Archetypes: A Purist book may come out from Atlas or Green Ronin
eventually, but until then, I'm gonna dabble with my own templates for the
- The Purist: Generic member of the conspiracy.
Sorcerous skill with a little dash of some previous career.
- The Purist Sorceror: Use the Sorceror archetype, replacing "Info/History"
with "Info/Mathemagic" and add 2063 to the Juncture list. Also gains the
Paradox Cube Schtick listed in the Purist Archetype but loses one of the
- The Chaos Programmer: One of those rare sorts
who can channel mathemagic through a computer, even if they have no sorcerous
skill without one.
- Constructs and Spirits: Advice on how to make
Purist-style Constructs and Spirits using the Ghost and Supernatural Creature
Shadowfist is a Trademark of Z-Man Games. Feng Shui is a Trademark of Atlas
Games. There's a lot of sharing, and a few uniqueness auctions.
