D&D 4E Press Release: Heroes of the Feywild!

hof coverJust got the press release this morning regarding the new Players’ Option book, Heroes of the Feywild.  I have to say I’m pretty excited to see this new product coming out this month, as well as the Fury of the Feywild Fortune Cards, and have high hopes I’ll be using both of these in my game.

I’ve already sent my player-characters from my Toledo-based Forgotten Realms campaign into the Feywild once in their adventuring careers, and have every intention of sending them back there again in the future.  And considering that three of the six characters are either elves or eladrin, I think there’s a good chance the material in Heroes of the Feywild will be pretty desirable for my players in my campaign.

I have my copy of HoF on order, and will be posting a review of it on EN World as soon as it gets here, so please check back in the coming days for a detailed assessment of this new Players’ Option book!

Here is the press release information on the release of Heroes of the Feywild… enjoy!

Are you ready to reach into the wild and arcane plane of the Feywild? Wizards of the Coast’s new Player’s Option supplement, Heroes of the Feywild, is available today and allows you to weave elements of the Feywild into your existing and future characters, in much the same way that Player’s Option: Heroes of Shadow gave players reasons to explore their characters’ dark connections to the Shadowfell.

Releasing alongside the new Player’s Option supplement are brand-new Fury of the Feywild Fortune Cards. These cards add a new level of chance to every encounter making the combat even more exciting, and are thematically tied to Heroes of the Feywild. Fortune Cards are perfect for giving you an extra edge in the weekly D&D Encounters events at your local gaming store (the new Encounters season, Beyond the Crystal Cave, starts tomorrow!), and can also be used in the challenging D&D Lair Assault sessions.

About Player’s Option: Heroes of the Feywild

This book contains exciting new character builds and options that are thematically rooted to the Feywild, a wild and verdant plane of arcane splendor, full of dangerous and whimsical creatures. Characters who trace their origins or backgrounds to the Feywild gain access to unique feats, powers, and mechanics. The book explores what makes fey-themed characters so fun and distinct.

Key Features:

  • Thematically tied to the November 2011 D&D Encounters season – players will want to use this book for character creation.
  • New options for ALL characters, not just ones tied to the Feywild.
  • The Player’s Option series expands the choices for players beyond the D&D Essentials™ books Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms™ and Heroes of the Fallen Lands™.
