Trivia

Cover art

The striking cover artwork is a piece by Brom originally used as the cover to Troy Denning's 1992 Dark Sun novel The Crimson Legion, book two of the Prism Pentad and TSR product #2403.

Release

Originally slanted for release in Fall of 1992, SSI was forced to delay the release of this game till late 1993. Because the company had originally counted on profits from this game in 1992, the delayed released indirectly led to SSI laying off 20% of its employees at the start of 1993. When it finally was released, Shattered Lands sold much poorer than expected. One year later in 1994, SSI would be bought out by Mindscape.
