Why I Pre Ordered Heroes of Shadow

Staring into your soul, convincing you to order Heroes of Shadow

As far as Dungeons and Dragons stereotypes go, few classes are as typical as the lawful good paladin. In general, adventuring parties tend to (at least on the whole) serve as a positive force of good in the realm of fantasy. And fancy that– there’s never shortage of evil to be slaughtered. Why is the story usually told from the perspective of the “good guys” beating up on the “bad guys”?

The Heroes of Shadow Why I Pre Ordered Heroes of Shadow player supplement presents a wonderful opportunity to turn “that” fantasy world upside down. Go crazy! Use this inspiration to run an evil campaign. Create a deeply flawed, evil character. You know you have wanted to. Go ahead, kill a few peasants… or even a whole town. No worries! Your alignment won’t shift to evil because it ALREADY IS.

Granted, a character “could” use powers from a stereotypically evil power source to do good, but where’s the fun in that? Unless it happens unintentionally. It’s about time we told the story from the perspective of monsters, or evil civilized races, and gave all the goodie goodies a ‘good’ thrashing!

Over the past months, we’ve posted a number of articles related to the upcoming Heroes of Shadow release. With the release to premier stores less then 20 days away (everywhere else April 19th), let us review:

New D&D Classes

New DnD Races

Vryloka (Vampire), Shade, and Revenant.

Dark Character Background Opportunities

Fun in the Shadowfell

Why Are YOU Excited?

What are you looking forward to in this release? New races, new classes and builds, or just a grand opportunity to express your dark side?

    It’s going to be hard to *not* create a Vampire Vampire Vampire for the next season of Encounters. If they open up the character generation a bit, I could even go Vampire (Dhampyr) Vampire (Revenant) Vampire (Vryloka) Vampire.

    I love the aspect of being bad but being good all at once. I love going bad on the bad guys any means possible, which even includes stuff like torture for information and leave no one alive situations. I also love to be the one running into burning buildings to save the baby. Maybe the Heroes of Shadow supplement will give me the opportunity to further my character.

    My DM think I am a little extreme with my character sometimes.

      Yeah, I always thought the “Chaotic Neutral” alignment was a lot of fun to play– might save your life, might rob you blind. :D
