Just a few questions. This is a story progression. Your characters should be leveled up a few times from the base game, and Heart of Glorm right? Thinking of a development in difficulty level for this expansion.

Except for the new characters. And what is the best way to use the new characters? In a mix with veterans from the base set?

If you're experienced player, start from scratch, use Nere. Alternatively, keep 2 skills from each character, but reset gear.

We just played on the way we were at the end of HoG. We didn't feel like there was a lack of difficulty because of it. All our mice had about 4 abilities and it played fine.

I should mention though, that we are the type of players that like to use cheese to fuel certain abilities, not pool it to level up as much as possible. And we don't try to 'max out' the time limit to search-for-cheese everywhere either.

Besides, beyond 4-5 abilities we feel like there's too much to keep track of anyway so we really only pick those abilities that we'll enjoy using.

In DT you get 3 new friends, some of which are mandatory at certain points.
So you don't really get a chance not to mix them in. So yes they start out a bit poorly, but not so weak that it's a hassle. And we found it a lot of fun to help them catch up.

For easiness, could the base game and expansions be played like this?:
1) Mice & Mystics: begin with 1 skill cards each (+basic gear)
2) Heart of Glorm: begin with 2 skill cards each, except for new characters (+basic gear)
3) Downwood Tales: begin with 3 skill cards each, except for new character (+basic gear)

New characters would always start with 1 skill card.

Or would you recommend some other starting configuration?
I've bought Heart of Glorm and wanted to start its campaign after having finished M&M basic game.
