This expansion for Escape the Dark Castle includes:
1 New Boss: The Undead Queen, a foul necromancer bent on enslaving your soul
15 New Chapters: The Undead Queen’s terrifying forces, and new castle locations
3 Companion Characters: Vital allies to accompany you and aid in your escape
3 Companion Trigger Cards: Event cards which signify the arrival of a Companion
3 Companion Dice: Used to carry out Companion actions and special abilities
2 New Items: Each a powerful relic for the prisoners to discover
1 New Item Dice: Used to apply the powers of a relic
This Adventure Pack introduces a new mechanic to the system - Companions. These characters can appear during a quest and join-up with the prisoners to assist in their escape. Fans of roleplaying games will know them by the term NPCs (non-player characters). Players will now encounter event cards in the item deck which trigger the arrival of one of the Companions. Each Companion has a unique mixture of traits and a special ability. They are powerful allies but their presence may be fleeting, so prisoners must choose carefully how and when to call on them.
