EN World Pre-Release Review – Heroes of the Elemental Chaos by WotC

heroes ele chaos coverGreetings fellow gamers!  It is Wednesday once again, and I have yet another new review on EN World News!  But I think today’s review will be rather exciting to D&D 4E fans out there, as I have obtained an advanced copy of the new Player’s Options book, Heroes of the Elemental Chaos!

As many of you know, this is the third of the Player’s Options books, which started to be released last year in the spring with Heroes of the Shadowfell and then Heroes of the Feywild coming out just last fall.  This current Player’s Option book is due out later this month on February 21st, right before the new season of D&D Encounters opens the next day with The Elder Elemental Eye!

For all the details, please click the link below and head over to EN World to read the full pre-release review:

Pre-Release Review of Heroes of the Elemental Chaos by Wizards of the Coast

There is a lot of very intriguing content in this book, and especially material that would finally allow Dungeon Masters to run the Elemental Chaos campaign setting, with characters that are tied to the elements, as opposed to just travelers sightseeing the maelstrom for kicks.  It could lead to a very humorous bit of role-reversal, when the players are forced send their elemental-dwelling heroes to Greyhawk, the Forgotten Realms, or Eberron, searching for something in a mundane realm which might help them deal with a problem brewing back home – in the maelstrom of the Elemental Chaos!

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!

    I prefer the Power books over the Player’s Option books; however, this one is the best of the three. The art is a lot better- Dave Allsop had a lot of drawings, and here is double the amount of art in his book over Heroes of Shadow.

    I’m not a fan of themes so I wish an elemental race or two had been added. I’m pretty happy to see an arcane version of the marial slayer (the Elementalist).

    I wonder if there will be a Heroes of the Astral Sea- I’m worried D&D Next will absorb the majority of designing resources.
