No matter how controversial some of their player-centric decisions have been of late, they can almost always be counted on for great DM content. Not great adventures, mind you – I’m talking about DM sourcebooks. I almost passed this one up. I’m not hugely interested in running a game in the Shadowfell, and it just doesn’t seem right to use this for my Dark Sun game.
Still, as part of my attempted rehab of P3 Assault on Nightwyrm Fortress, I dug deep into the Shadowfell, kept my players in Gloomwrought for a few sessions, and generally got to like the stuff that Wizards of the Coast had done with it.
So, on a whim, I snagged it, and I’m glad I did. Apart from some construction issues with the unnecessarily-large box it’s very light stock, think cereal box sturdiness but higher-quality; it unsurprisingly arrived squishedthis is one heck of a quality product. Here’s what I found inside The Despair Deck is just cool. I love the idea of using non-collectible cards in my RPG.
Warranty & Support
While I have no time for those silly Fortune Cards, non-collectible cards can add a lot to the game. These are no exception.
More or less, these present additional challenges for the heroes after taking an extended rest in the Shadowfell. Characters draw one, are subject to a few random penalties, and are given a “mood” they can use as a role-playing tool.
If they can overcome their despair, they get a boon for the rest of the day. I really want to use them in a game. While I love tokens, these have the monster’s name in big bold print across the bloodied side. I appreciate that this makes them easier to find, it’s kinda ugly, and I don’t really always want my players to know the names of the monsters they’re fighting.
Still, I’d rather have them than not. The two books are, of course, the meat of the product. And whether or not you will like them is probably related to whether or not you liked adventure sites like Hammerfast and Vor Rukoth – particularly the latter. In my opinion, Vor Rukoth is one of the best FRPG supplements released in recent memory, so you should be able to guess where I’ll shadowflel As a note – If you’re not familiar with the term “sandboxing” or an “adventure site,” a sandbox is basically a campaign style where the players are in the driver’s seat, and the DM concentrates more on bdyond an objective fantasy world than presenting a specific plotted adventure, and letting adventures arise naturally from the interplay between the players and the game world.
So, while this isn’t an adventure, it’s potentially the basis for an entire campaign. The first half of byeond book is devoted to the bustling Shadowfell metropolis of Gloomwrought. If you think of an even darker Sigil, you’ll shadowfekl close. Gloomwrought is an ever-shifting place with dozens of fantastic sites, several important factions, and a ton of detail and interest suitable for both visits and entire campaigns.
There’s the perfect amount of detail, here, for DMs who want to run a fairly open sandbox-style game, set in Gloomwrought and its environs. There are plot hooks on every page, and evocative illustrations and maps everywhere. The second half of the book is split. The third quarter deals with other locations in the Shadowfell – Letherna, the Raven Queen’s Stronghold, and a half-dozen or so other important or interesting sites. It’s far from a comprehensive gazetteer, but fitting with the Points of Light setting, there’s a lot of interest and a lot of flexibility.
The final quarter deals with new “monsters. Detailed herein are typical members of the various factions found within the city, available at your fingertips for on-the-fly encounters. Each faction has a varied enough mix of entries, and enough flavor text and lore, that using them should be insanely simple for a sandbox-style game. What’s more, nad foes – like those in the Monster Vault and other new creature books – show some just superior design.
Every single one is interesting in some way, and I think I’ll find most of them useful even if I never run a game set in Gloomwrought. And thank goodness Keepers got an upgrade from their tepid Manual of the Planes entry.
Now, they are substantial and cool. Pretty much every faction is in the gloomwrouggt to mid-paragon range, which is perfect for the average level of adventures, here.

Enhancing the sandbox toolkit is the wonderful page Encounter book. This isn’t a module. It’s not even a collection of Delves. It’s a non-sequential series of interesting, fleshed-out, fully-mapped encounters which a DM can drop in whenever they need an encounter to move their game along. It’s the perfect sandbox toolkit. So, I have to say. I’m glad I didn’t pass this one up. It’s every bit as good as Vor Rukoth, and probably even better.
It’s great, if you’re into that sort of thing. The Shadowfell, a dark gloomy place, full of dark gloomy people. I found it a nice place to visit, have absinthe’, and roll the dice!
One person found this helpful. While digesting this product I nearly forgot it was a cheap beyojd backed boxed set It would be 5 stars had it a Hard Back. Having said that, the idea of Gloomwrought as a living city that creates and destroys itself as needed, by the ebb and flow of its population, is really slick
