Escape the Dark Castle: Blight of the Plague Lord - Expansion
Escape the Dark Castle: Blight of the Plague Lord- Strategy Game Expansion
From the deepest, long-forgotten passageways, to the vaulted eaves of the highest towers – there you will find his creation. For he is the Plague Lord - a monstrous, sentient mass of weeping pustules, proud emanator of an all-encompassing evil. It would be his most perverse pleasure to watch as you slowly succumb to the agonising torment of the Plague...
Blight of the Plague Lord is the 3rd Expansion for Escape the Dark Castle.
Expansion Box Includes:
- 1 New Boss: The Plague Lord, gaining strength as his infection grows
- 15 New Chapters: His deranged followers, and new castle locations
- 3 New Characters: Versatile new prisoners ready to join the quest
- 3 Character Dice: Representing the new prisoner’s endowment of skills
5 New Items: Vital new equipment for prisoners to discover in the depths
1 Plague Dice: Used to control the contraction and spread of this vile disease
Along with fifteen new castle locations, three new playable prisoners, and a new boss, this expansion for Escape the Dark Castle introduces an entirely new mechanic to the system – Plague!
Prisoners will now encounter Carriers - plague-infected lunatics bent on spreading the disease. Prisoners can contract, spread, and even succumb entirely to this rampant atrocity, adding a new dimension and weight to the game’s risk-reward decisions.
This Adventure Pack (expansion) is designed to expand and deepen your adventures. You must have a copy of Escape the Dark Castle to use one. Each Pack follows a similar format - adding new chapters, characters and items to the game. Each pack also introduces a new mechanic which brings a little more complexity - but these new elements are always optional.
You can play the chapter cards from an Adventure Pack in order (as in, not shuffled) as a standalone themed quest of its own. Alternatively, you can mix the new chapter cards into the contents of the main game for even greater variety. If you change your mind later, you can easily separate the cards by set, using the unique codes subtlety printed onto each card.
The idea is that you can pick and choose before each game from among all the cards in your collection, which cards and rules you'd like to play with this time. So, you can tailor the game to your taste and level each time you play.
Think of the Escape the Dark Castle range as something of a toolkit.
A copy of Escape the Dark Castle core game is required to use this expansion.
