The Shadowfell is a dark reflection of the natural world, a haunting plane where fear and death rule. Yet, within the gloom are countless lures for adventurers seeking fortune, glory, and more. This set is for Dungeon Masters interested in taking their heroes on excursions to the Shadowfell, as well as Dungeon Masters looking for a sinister setting in which to run thrilling urban adventures.
A page book presents the fully detailed city of Gloomwrought, complete with location descriptions, maps, quests, and game statistics for monsters and villains.
In addition, the set contains a page book of encounters set in Gloomwrought and beyond, two sheets of monster and villain tokens, a foldout battle map, and a deck of 30 cards that DMs can use to add suspense to any Shadowfell-based adventure. It was published in May Continuing with the Shadows. In , Wizards of the Coast totally revamped their 4e product line.
They'd cancelled all their existing series for Essentials … but now Essentials had theoretically run its book course.
Fortunately, Wizards had plans for a new sequence of books in early a set of books all talking about the shadows. Within the Points of Light world, Shadowfell would have been a nice companion to "Gazetteer: The Nentir Vale", but unfortunately that book had disappeared from Wizards' schedule late in Components: Thinking Inside the Box.
Shadowfell was something new for the mainstream 4e line: a boxed set. This was probably a result of the changing landscape brought about by Essentials. Madness at Gardmore Abbey would also appear in a box later that year, while two other books would be slipcased. With all that said, most fans felt the Shadowfell box was pretty flimsy, nothing like the sturdier Essentials boxes of It included a page Campaign Guide, a page Encounter book, a poster map of Gloomwrought, monster counters, and a card deck of Despair cards.
Components: A Token Effort. Monster tokens were another idea that had originated in Essentials — appearing in the Dungeon Master's Kit , Monster Vault , and the Starter Set This was their first appearance outside of the Essentials line proper. Components: In the Cards. It eventually became Shadowfell's Despair Deck. The deck cleverly mixes the themes of the Shadowfell with the mechanics of 4e to produce a vivid roleplaying aid.
Players draw cards while in the Shadowfell, leading to apathy, fear, and madness. However, players can overcome these negative emotions when they achieve milestones, and turn them into benefits. An extended rest wipes out all of the Despair cards in play — good or bad. Card decks were being pushed hard by Wizards at the time.
The Essentials Facts. Several months into , fans were still asking whether Essentials was continuing past its original book sequence, or whether books that supported the old core were returning. Shadowfell didn't really do much for the argument. Its back cover claimed that it was for use with Essentials products, but it didn't have an Essentials logo.
Expanding the World Axis. The Shadowfell had been important ever since 4e debuted in H1: "Keep on the Shadowfell" In fact, it remained important throughout the "HPE" adventure series However to date its main description had appeared in Manual of the Planes , which dedicated 14 pages to the Shadowfell, including 2 pages on Gloomwrought. In addition, the Ravenloft-y parts of the Shadowfell had been appearing in Dragon'sDragon October Shadowfell provides more detail than ever on the plane.
Gloomwrought got most of the attention, appearing as a dark city that some described as a "Dark Sigil". Future History. About the Creators. Of the three authors working on Shadowfell , de Bie was the only author experienced at Wizards — though most of his previous work was fiction. This was the only work that Clautice and Goetz did for Wizards. Goetz has since moved on to do a bit of work for Pathfinder.

Is there any way to get this corrected? Thank you. I came here to ask the same question I notice Caitlin F posted in - what does this actually include? It's fairly important: I can find second-hand boxed sets with all the components for a similar price so if it's just the books it's not a great deal. This kit comes with the Shadowfell book, the encounter book, both maps, and the card deck with their backs.
