Setup: Place the Breeding Chamber card into play with 4 life. When playing with four players, Breeding Chamber starts the game with 1 life.
Shuffle all of the pod cards together and place them facedown to form the pod deck.
Unleash: Breeding Chamber gains 3 life.
Increased Difficulty: Unleash: Breeding Chamber gains 5 life instead of 3.
Additional Rules: At the end of the nemesis turn, if Breeding Chamber has 11 or more life, it imbues a pod: draw a card from the pod deck, place it into play, and Breeding Chamber loses 10 life. Repeat this until Breeding Chamber has 10 or less life.
When a pod is discarded, place it in the pod discard pile. (This is not the same as the nemesis discard pile.)
When the pod deck is empty, shuffle the pod discard pile to form a new pod deck.
When there are seven pods in play, Spawning Horror completes its metamorphosis and the players lose.
That ought to tide you over until you can get a replacement from the manufacturer. Have fun!
Edit: Oops! Forgot to include the starting life... you may need that! Fixed.
2nd edit: Oh, and assuming they did correctly give you the sheet with the shield tokens and Malastar's Gift, that's the illustration of the Spawning Horror at the bottom.
