After almost two years of not playing RtL we decided to give it a go, and started a new campaign last week. Being particulary evil though rather inexperienced Overlord I chose The Eternal Night as my plot. However I cannot find any information if I have to buy extra plot cards (spending much needed XP) or is it enough just to wait till the campaign gets to the golden stage and final battle then.

I'd be very grateful for any clarification.

The Plot Cards are basically additional OL Upgrades. You, as the OL, can decide to spend your XP on a plot card if you want to focus on that. Some plot cards have other prerequisites (i.e. played at certain stages, prior plot cards must be bought, etc).

The OL has 3 main ways to win: razing Tamalir, completing the Plot, killing the heroes at the End Battle. It's best to decide on one strategy and focus on that. Most players have reported the end fight is extremely difficult for the OL to win, so they tend to focus on the Plot Cards.
