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.

6 .Philbarfly's Cards for Paddirn's Advanced Injury, Madness and Mutation Charts
Print at 100% (not R°V°). Cut cards and put them inside sleeves. Backs comes with numbers or without (if you want to draw a card intead of rolling dice). You must print the Mutation cards twice for 4 players. Injuries and Madnesses are enough for 4 Heroes (if you are lucky).

3 Adventure Chart (Mission Generator)
Made for Hex Crawl a chart to randomly generate missions. I tried to stick with the same odds of rolling basic adventures vs other world adventures as Sid has in the Hex Crawl rules. Still thinking of exactly how the campaign adventures will work with hex crawl. My latest idea is if you generate a campaign mission you have a choice to either accept or decline. If the posse accepts the campaign they have to see it through the end or suffer consequences. If they succeed in the campaign, regardless of there traits will always gain +2 on the the town charts. Perhaps they will also gain 1 random personal item. Once the campaign is accepted the posse has to play through the whole campaign. They would not roll a random mine for the campaign. The campaign will take place in a...

11 .Philbarfly's New Cards : Gear available at the Campsite + 3 Mine Artifacts
UPDATED (2 Items added with a wink to Paddirn : Tooth Paste and Suspenders) Useful items to use with the Huckster (Throwing cards, Knuckleduster Revolver, Holdout device), House Rules about Bivouac (Dutch Oven) or Wandering Threat (Safety Goggles), The Canopy Village (Lariat) or in the generic game... This valuable Gear is already available at your Campsite. The purchase price of Gear Cards is under the icon of the Townshop. The resale price is near a third of the purchase price (not the half as in rules !). Resales prices of Gear Cards in SOB are variable, sometimes the fifth of the purchase prices in Town, for example a Pistol at the General Store costs $500, the resale price on the Gear Card is $100). The Nemesis Pistol is from an idea of Bainweed. Thanks. (Sorry Beorndog ;) )...
