I was wondering how I am supposed to go about adding OL cards from expansions to the OL deck during a campaign. I've got all the expansions now, which makes for quite a few cards ( spawns, for example ) that have to be added to the deck. I'm wondering if this doesn't significantly lower the difficulty for the heroes, since I will cycle through my deck less often. Am I supposed to maintain a certain number in my OL deck ? Or do I just add these cards?

Nope, not at all in fact. All expansions adds I think 6 cards? Which is 2 turns to cycle the deck. 90% of the dungeons my Heroes have gone through they breeze so fast that I never get to the bottom of the deck even once, let alone twice. Plus the added spawns (and the Danger card) tend to balance out the added cards.

Exactly as it says in the corresponding expansion (ie add in all non-treachery cards).

The the OL is more than compensated for his increased deck size by the more varied cards available and the ability to use treachery, and a wider variety of monsters.

And if the heroes are halfway competent the increased deck size will make no difference at all in 90% of dungeons.
Which is another way of sayig that if the heroes are still in the dungeon when 36 cards have been drawn then they are playing badly, for the most part.
