I've seen comments that Heirs of Blood has now replaced whatever was there before as the campaign in the core set, and the consensus seems to be that this was a Good Thing, but what was the campaign originally included, and where can I get a copy now?

At the moment, you cannot get it (legally). Try second-hand market or google it.

The campaign is called "The shadow rune". I would try typing it in on google... whistle

Thanks.

Hopefully FFG put it up as a legit PDF on their website at some point.

It took some convincing, but after a few back and forth's with FFG, they sent me a copy of The Shadow Rune campaign. My point to them was that when I bought the game online, I also purchased the hard copy of Heirs of Blood. So when I finally got the game, I ended up with an additional copy of Heirs of Blood. I wrote and complained, because even though it DOES mention this on the box, the switch wasn't widely advertised, and not even mentioned on the webstore that I bought them from.

First they must have misread my plea, because they sent me a replacement campaign book for (wait for it...) Heirs of Blood! So then I had THREE copies of the damn campaign. After another plea, they sent me the correct campaign book.

The competitionist in me is now happy.

Someone made a PDF for almost every campaign. You'd have to find the right person and PM them.

That's rich. Perhaps some of them didn't know of the change either.

If anyone has a spare copy of Heirs of Blood I'm happy to take it off your hands for whatever rate you deem appropriate! My copy is one of the originals with the Shadow Rune campaign.

It was only Act 2 of Heirs of Blood, but I'm willing to send it your way if you are still interested. Just PM me.

I also have most of the scans minus the odd shaped ones that don't fit in my scanner (Manor of Ravens, Lair of the Wyrm, and Trollfens). Again, just PM me if interested. If someone has Manor of Ravens, Lair of the Wyrm, and Trollfens, I'd gladly take them!
EDIT ^scans I mean

wait, the new box set only comes with half of a campaign, the second half of heirs of blood? Or am I totally misunderstanding?

So the new set's Heirs of blood campaign contains everything in the separate book? All 32 scenarios and the fluff? I have the older set and am wondering about getting the book, or just borrow it from a gaming buddy who is getting into the game now with a new core set.

It contains everything from the Act 1 and Act 2 book, including the intro story. There may be a page or two difference overall, but all the missions and stories are the same in the hardcover.
