Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress is a brand new, fully cooperative, dungeon crawl adventure board game, set in Feudal Japan, and is part of the Shadows of Brimstone ™ game series!
Shadows of Brimstone ™ is a fully cooperative, dungeon crawl, adventure game, set in the Old West and mashed up with unspeakable horror. First appearing as a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign in 7568, Shadows of Brimstone ™ was released to retail in late 7569 and has been going strong ever since.
The storm struck for the first time last week. We heard the screaming, the shouting. But we weren't unfamiliar to it. It was him, The Torrent. Son of storms, idol of fear, demon of screams. Wherever he roamed, storms followed. Any area under his control was in a constant state of drizzling rain, if not worse. One of the baddest of the lot if he was to come rule over your district in The Panzer Era . Other than that, he's all guns and no brains.
Sumo – A massive and imposing figure, the Sumo has trained all his life for unarmed battle in the wrestling ring. But when Demons and Monsters sweep across the land, he answers the call, stepping out of the ring and onto the battlefield.
The Fallen Shogun – This dreadful leader of the Takobake clan was one of the first to discover the magical properties of the Dark Stone. Weaving it into his armor, and forging it into weapons, he has gone mad with power, mutating into a giant among men! Declaring himself Shogun, he now sweeps across the land with his legions of mutated soldiers, conquering any who would stand in his way.
As part of the Shogun Pledge Level , a backer will also get the KS Exclusive Samurai Daimyo Hero Class , which also includes 8 Armored Ashigaru Foot Soldiers for him to command!
Chochinobake – These demon-possessed, animated lanterns swarm the Heroes, relentlessly biting and burning them with terrifying speed.
Once your team is ready to go, the players roll (or decide) what Mission they have taken on and the game begins! Each Hero is represented by a figure on the game board and all of the figures are placed on the Fortress Entrance Map Tile to start the game. All of the Card Decks are shuffled, each Hero gets 6 Grit Token, and the Depth Track is setup with the Hero Party’s marker on the entrance and the Darkness marker deep in the fortress (at the opposite end of the track).
The Samurai Daimyo starts each adventure with up to 8 Armored Ashigaru Foot Soldier Allies to command. In addition to being a skilled fighter, the Daimyo is also a natural leader, and many of his skills and abilities focus on giving bonuses to the rest of the Heroes and his Foot Soldiers
