Description Edit | History

Shadows of Brimstone: City of the Ancients is a fast-paced, fully cooperative, dungeon-crawl board game set in the Old West, with a heavy dose of unspeakable horror! Players create characters, taking on the role of a classic Western Hero Archetype, such as the Law Man, Gunslinger, or Saloon Girl. Forming an adventuring posse, the Heroes venture down into the dark mines, overrun with all manner of ancient demons and foul creatures from another world. With tactical gameplay, lots of dice, and a robust card-driven exploration system, no two games are ever the same as the heroes explore the mines finding new enemies to fight, new loot to collect, and new dangers to overcome. Players can even find portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventures on the other side!

An exciting campaign system allows the players to visit local frontier towns between adventures, spending their hard-earned loot and building their characters from game to game! As players find fantastic gear and artifacts to equip their heroes, they also gain experience from their adventures. This experience is used to level up, guiding the hero's path through an expansive, class-specific upgrade tree of new skills and abilities, allowing each player to develop their hero to fit their own play style.

In City of the Ancients, players will encounter portals to the otherworld on the Plains of Targa, finding an ancient frozen city whose living inhabitants are nowhere to be found. Instead, great mechanical keepers wander the city going about their duties - until interrupted by the arrival of the players' characters!

So load up yer' six shooter, throw on yer' hat and poncho, and gather the posse as the darkness is coming, and all hell's about to break loose...in the Shadows of Brimstone!

Can be used together with Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death to raise the maximum players to 6.

8 Legends of the West
Hello fellow Brimstone fans. Please read this before downloading :) You may remember me, as I have created a few custom missions. However all my missions so far have been standalone. Therefore I have decided to do a campaign. So far I have completed the Background Story and the first Mission in the 6 scenario campaign. The best thing about this campaign? It will be incorporated to play with all enemies/otherworld! So if you only have the Targa Set, you can use it. If you want to play a campaign in the Svamps of Jargono or maybe the fiery Caverns of Cynder or any otherworld, you can. As I stated, all Enemies can also be incorporated in the missions (so you won't have Night Terrors exclusive to some missions etc.) However, the more enemies you do have, the more fun the missions will...

21 UPDATED House Rules (Wandering Threats, A.I., Taking Cover...) v2.1
NEW! EXTENDED HOUSE RULES V2.1 Shadows of brimstone is a wonderful game but after a lot of adventures it appears that: I) SOB is not well balanced and it becomes to be too easy when you reach third or 4th Level. II) Fighting enemies is repetitive because enemies have high movement values relative to the Heroes. Combat have always the same configuration. III) Heroes have not many choices in combat. IV) Enemies also need a developped AI, adapted to their abilities. V) The artwork on the map tiles is very beautiful but it is not really used by the game system. VI) The tiles provide forks, but the game system offers no reason why having more than one exit. These house rules are intended to correct these aspects. Some ideas come more or less from David Reynolds, Scott Everts, Njori,...

Includes a 2 part initiative tracker (print, laminate, tape together) and initiative tokens for the two base game heroes and monsters. Stick tokens on 1.25" smooth poker chips or similar.

5 Session Tracker (XP/Gold/OtherStuff)
After a couple of plays, I've made a couple of changes: 1) pre-calculation at the end of each row. 2) instead of 20 gold, changed to 25 gold since the game tends to dish $ out in increments of 25.

7 Shadows of Brimstone TOC
I have complied a TOC for Shadows of Brimstone using the City of the Ancients Rulebook. I believe the rulebook in both core sets is the same, so this can probably be used for either core set.

8 Shadows of Brimstone Index
I have complied and index for Shadows of Brimstone using the City of the Ancients Rulebook. I believe the rulebook in both core sets is the same, so this can probably be used for either core set. The main topics are in bold with the sub-topics in regular print. Hopefully this will aid in finding specific rules or subjects.
