'''Shadowland''' is an archetypal setting. That is, it is a setting that meets the needs of the ShadowArchetype out of Jungian philosophy. Fancy way of saying that this setting has the specific purpose in the story of providing a darker view of ''another'' setting in the story. {{Mordor}} serves as a shadowland of The Shire in Tolkien's works, for example. Another example would be the grimy underground dwellings of the Morlocks, provided as a shadow of the [[{{Arcadia}} agrarian paradise]] enjoyed by the Eloi in H.G. Wells' "The Time Machine."

''Not to be confused with ''Film/{{Shadowlands}}'', the biographical movie about Creator/CSLewis, or ''Comicbook/{{Shadowland}}'', the Marvel crossover comic. Also not to be confused with the Shadowlands of ''{{Exalted}}'' or ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'', though they often play this role.''

'''Simba:''' Wow. ''[...]'' But what about that shadowy place?\\
'''Mufasa:''' That's beyond our borders. You must never go there.

Its exact composition depends on what it is the shadow ''of''. It might be densely wooded, to contrast a prairie, if [[GardenOfEvil life in the woods is dark and dangerous]], and life on the prairie is free and breezy. It could be [[ViceCity a bleak dystopian cityscape]] versus [[{{Arcadia}} a vibrant agrarian hamlet]], or [[TheLostWoods a dark and haunted wilderness]] versus a [[ShiningCity shining crystal city]] or [[DeadlyDecadentCourt the vicious royal court]] versus the [[GhibliHills peaceful countryside]] ... you get the picture.

May be the "before" setting of the realm during the RightfulKingReturns, if the FisherKing trope is deployed.

Compare {{Foil}}, which works with characters.
