For other meanings, see Black Dog (disambiguation).

Black Dog is a division of Pentex, and produces roleplaying games. They're best known for their Talespinner System games set in the Romantic-Rage setting of the World of Shadow.[1][2]



Black Dog affect that their games are much cooler than other RPGs, because they're not geek romps through Arthurian landscapes or nerdy interstellar politics, but set in the modern era. In truth, most of their plots and characters are lifted directly from Terry Brooks novels and Star Trek.

As the Glass Walkers fall to the Wyrm, and they follow the dictates of the Pentex Corporate Father, one of their tasks is to get published a catastrophic series of events in Black Dog's major game lines.[3]

Black Dog also released a "Tome of Unification" which would allow you to create your own hybrid character, assuming you'd already purchased all of the above games.[1]

Troika Games had radio ads for Frankenstein: Breadlust, which may have been a World of Shadow game (despite Frankensteins not being one of the known game lines).[4]
