The Forest of the Dead is a shadowy realm that lies between worlds. It is a place where the dead from all worlds roam freely amongst the ancient and decayed trees. A cold, thick fog hangs in the air, and the gnarled branches gently sway and clack in the fetid breeze. The forest floor is covered in a spongy moss, and the soft black soil beneath hides the countless bones and treasures of untold eons. It is difficult not to feel utterly alone in the stillness of the woods, but the creatures of the forest know you are here. They are hungry for the fleeting warmth that only life carries, and they desire above all else revenge upon the living!
This Deluxe OtherWorld Expansion allows your Heroes to explore the haunted Forest of the Dead, battling Undead versions of virtually any Enemies you have in your collection, as well as a host of new and terrifying creatures that roam the shadowy woods!
Like all OtherWorlds, The Forest of the Dead has a set of unique Encounters, Artifacts, Map Cards, and OtherWorld Threat cards, as well as a couple of Global Rules that make adventuring there more distinct. The Global Rules are listed on the World Card included in this expansion. While exploring the Forest of the Dead, Heroes will find themselves picking their way through densely packed decayed trees and crumbling stone ruins, shining their lantern’s light through the cold fog that hangs in the air. Many have found their way into the dark Forest, whether through death or gateway, but few ever find their way back out.
New Map Tiles
The Forest of the Dead Expansion includes an entire set of 19 brand new, double-sided Map Tiles. This gives you a full set of Map Tiles for the new Forest of the Dead OtherWorld, but also a new set of Map Tiles for the Forbidden Fortress, including 8 new Unique Rooms, 4 new Standard Rooms, an additional set of 6 Passages, and a new Haunted Castle Entrance Map Tile!
New Encounters, Artifacts, Threats and others!
There are 6 new Missions in the Forest of the Dead Expansion, each themed around different aspects of the new Map Tiles, Cards, Enemies, and OtherWorld.
This Deluxe OtherWorld Expansion includes a host of dangerous new Enemies to encounter, including: 3 large Goryu - Savage and animalistic ghouls that shred their prey with beastly ferocity. 3 large Spectral Hordes - Swirling groups of terrifying spirits that drain the life essence from their victims. 6 Nure-Onna Vampires - Slithering serpent women that fight with flashing blades and feed on blood. And 3 Shadow Wraiths - Ghostly spectres of fallen Heroes that now roam the forest, seeking revenge on the living.
Also included are 6 plastic Decayed Tree models. These are for use with the Decayed Tree rules and are placed on the board to give a more 3D feel to the Environment.
