JC118899: Should I play the first Heretic game before I jump into playing Shadows? It seems that Shadows picks up in the middle of a story.
It's a fun game in its own right and there are some references in the second game to the events in the first but you should be able to play Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms just fine :)
