It's just a bit confusing - are you resurected Heroes? How many quests are there and does the story evolve through to facing a big bad?

Many thanks for any info. Don't mind if its spoilery just if you do put it in a spoiler box!

You were all legendary heroes and you died. You've been resurrected for some purpose. You don't level up in the sense of other role-playing games but instead you are regaining the power you once had. This is effectively the same thing, but that's how it works storywise. There are more than 20 Quests in the entire campaign, some of which you will not play because there are small branching paths, but if you played through more than once perhaps you'd see a couple of different Quests.

i'd like to qualify that "the campaign" means the core box and all other expansions (edit: at least one of which isn't, unless i'm sorely mistaken, yet available in retail).

The core box itself has 7 missions, only 6 of which get played in a given campaign.

Yep,probably the biggest flaw of the base game. 7 quests are very few.

There are 22 quests if you buy the core box, Arcane Portal, Darkness Falls and Vastaryous lair. Of those, you'll play 20. So there is 1 different/branching quest in the core box and 1 in Darkness Falls.
