Hello!
I choose a Shogun level pledge but I was thinking about adding something.

I was looking at:
- Plastic Dorways
- Deluxe Darkstone
- Peril Dice

Can anybody tell me something about those add ons?
I mean, will those doorways be sufficient in numbers?
What are those darkstone pices used for?
It says there is only 1 per die in the core game, is it enough or do you feel 2 other dice will speed up the game?

Thank you in advance!

One set of doors should be sufficient.

The darkstone adds to immersion, you can use them instead of, or in addition to the cardboard ones.

Pdice, these are huge for me. I had pledged for 4 sets before I upgraded to black level. I'm still likely gonna get 3. Having more will almost certainly speed up gameplay.

In ogsob there are a few weapons that use pdice for damage. If you roll a lot of attack dice, you may need many pdice.
There are also cards or items that may call for you to roll 2 pdice.

Thank you very much for the quick answer

So, one set of doors and at least one set of pdice will be mine
I'm not sure about the darksone, I suppose it's a nice addition but I'll live even with only the tokens.

When short of peril dice, just use regular d6's and add two if you roll a 1 or 2.

Also, if you backed Shogun, you'll be getting the Temple of Shadows, which comes with its own peril die as well, so you'll have two regardless.

The graphic doesn't show a peril die for Temple of Shadows.

2 extra peril dice will speed up the game slightly. When playing normal SOBS it is something I sometimes want more than the two I have.

I've not yet needed more than 5.

They are IIRC Purple acrylic vase crystals.

Seriously, I obsessively love Brimstone, and I cannot abide paying for "Darkstone" when any hobby-shop will sell giant bags of vase crystals, or pet-shops selling fish-tank crystals, for hundreds of pieces for a dollar. They're really cheap, junky tokens in an otherwise masterful game.

Also, it should be said, if you find yourself buying other Brimstone products (and you will), you'll get a P-die in each core set of the original game.

For those of us who own a fair bit of it, the one in Forbidden Fortress will already be our/your third one.

Yeah, I was pretty embarrassed to learn I'd been rooked with cheapo vase crystals as well.

Do not order the darkstone shards! Go to Michaels/Hobby Lobby craft store.

That's so you can hide them and never need to see them again!

To buy, or not to buy Darkstone Shards, such is the lure and corruption of Darkstone....d10-6d10-6d10-6
