I only have the core and Khazad-Dûm is Mia for now.
Would this be do'able?

It would be really tough. It maaaaaay be possible with easy mode, but I suspect even with easy mode your winning percentage would be less than 10%.

It also makes little sense to start the campaign in "Book III".

You could jump into Black Riders, but it would still be tough (not as though). For it the designers assumed there would be a number playing it with one core set. It won't be easy but should be beatable (and you're at the beginning of the story ).

Interesting.. remember I'm ultra new.
So even with say a good multi sphere core and these new cards it still would be tough.. interesting.

It will be tough because the core set and early cycles had almost no emphasis on trait or keyword synergy, which this box apparently does to a minor extent. Those early cards are primarily utility cards, which have been outshone in specific instances.

They've also added more keywords both for player and encounter cards, so core cards won't have the best counters to those new mechanics.

I guess the boons from earlier saga boxes also carry over, so the later sagas might be balanced a bit towards players having those.

I do seem to understand that the cards are pretty cool...
