The Keystones & Keeps content expansion is expected to add three new Castle heroes and three "evil" versions of classic Catacomb heroes. The set also includes two deluxe heroes: the Querlossus on the Castle Team and the Werewolf on the Catacomb Team.
These new heroes are expected to be compatible with Catacombs Third Edition.
The Wraith Knight family of monsters along with new items and spells for Catacombs Third Edition are expected to be included in this expansion as well.
More importantly, the expansion is expected to include a new square game board (size: 18x18”, 45.7cm x 45.7cm). As this game board is slightly smaller than the main Catacombs & Castles board (20x20”. 50.8cm x 50.8cm), this single sided board will focus on the "pits", large holes die-cut into the surface, and the "bridge" between them.
We are planning to include "fill cards" that can be placed under two large die cut holes, such that the "pits" can represent different environments and hazards each time you play.
Thematically this game board is designed to represent the daring rescue of the keystone by an intrepid group of heroes during the construction of the keep of the castle.
The Keystones & Keeps expansion will include "evil versions" of some of the iconic heroes from Catacombs Third Edition. They will join the Catacomb Team in the struggle to invade the castle and secure the keystone. Keystones & Keeps will include new hero portrait and rules card for these "evil" catacomb themed heroes. These heroes are:
Xoric The Barbarian
Oleira The Elf
Aprill The Fire Mage
The Keystones & Keeps expansion is available during this Kickstarter campaign and will not be sold at retail; however it will continue to be made available from our online store (at a higher price) after campaign fulfillment has been completed.
