The name Heroes of Shadow calls back to the two Players Essentials books that Wizards had released the previous year: However, those were general rulebooks, while Heroes of Shadow is something else: It focuses on the shadows — covering shadow magic, shadow classes, shadow races, shadow paragon paths, and shadow epic destinies.
Despite the thematic similarity, Heroes of Shadow has a broader scope, going beyond class builds and new races to offer more details on shadow-y stuff. Heroes of Shadow also differs from its 4e predecessors by dropping the phrase "power source" from its vocabulary. Though there's plenty of talk of the "power of shadow" or the "power of darkness", it no longer seems to be such a rigid, rules-specific thing.
Wizards would move even further from its original concept of power sources in the two Player's Options books that followed: Heroes of the Feywild and Heroes of the Elemental Chaos The Essentials Facts. The most vitriolic argument preceding the release of Heroes of Shadows was whether it was an Essentials book or not.
Older 4e fans hoped for a return to the "core", while newer fans didn't want to see Essentials abandoned after just 10 releases. Even after Heroes of Shadows ' release, reviewers couldn't decide the answer to the question, which shows how muddled its marketing message was. The book itself is clear in saying that it's for players who joined the game through the Essentials rulebooks like the Rules Compendium or the two earlier Heroes books.
Heroes of Shadows' classes are also built like the Essentials characters. However, the new races and the rules for incorporating shadow magic into other classes were all be usable by any 4e player.
Finally, Heroes of Shadow doesn't carry an Essentials logo, for what that was worth. The Forgotten Heroes. Heroes of Shadow presented a new Essentials-style Executioner build that also made a 4e assassin widely available for the first time.
The blackguard is an alternate paladin that's sort of evil. The idea of an anti-paladin dates back to an article called "Good Got You Down? Try This for Evil" in Dragon 39 July An even more expansive article called "A Plethora of Paladins" appeared in Dragon February and offered paladin variants for all 9 alignments.
However, anti-paladins had never before gotten official notice, and PHBR The Complete Paladin's Handbook even said "we discourage the use of anti-paladins". Now, Heroes of Shadow finally offered an official option. Early marketing material for Heroes of Shadow also promised rules for hexblades and necromancers. Hexblades appear as a warlock variant, while necromancers appear through a new necromancy school of magic — though it wasn't what was expected by fans who imagined wizards with armies of undead.
Bring On the Monsters. The most controversial element of Heroes of Shadow was probably the introduction of the vampire as a new class. The designers made this unusual choice because it allowed them to "create a character that both captures the aspects of the iconic vampire, and feels like a vampire every round". It also permitted players to mix various races with the vampire class. As he turned followers, the vampires became a plague on the face of Blackmoor, requiring Arneson to introduce the first cleric to the campaign, Mike Carr's Bishop Carr.
The Grim Harvest There was even a vampire class. The Resurrected Races. Three races appear in Heroes of Shadow.
The revenant had previously appeared in Dragon June The vryloka was a breed of living vampires based on some of the same ideas as the vrykolaka from "Hearts of Darkness" in Dragon October Expanding the World Axis. For all of its focus on shadow, Heroes of Shadow just barely touches on the Shadowfell.
For that, players would need to instead consult The Shadowfell: Gloomwrought and Beyond the next month. Future History. Wizards focused on shadow throughout early About the Creators. This was the last major 4e project for lead designer Mike Mearls. Please feel free to mail corrections, comments, and additions to shannon.

The rules it adds however, feel little Videogamey, putting a lot of effort into flare, despite the details in question not necessarily "ask" for such flare.
