Description

This new edition of the classic Shadows of Brimstone: City of the Ancients features a full set of all new, re-designed miniatures for all of the Heroes and Enemies. In fewer pieces, and with better proportions and greater detail, these are some of the best Shadows of Brimstone miniatures produced to date!

This set also features a full balance and polish pass on every component of the game. This includes all of the FAQ and corrections since the original release, as well as some revised mechanics, card abilities, Hero Starting Upgrades, Enemy Elite Charts, Town Locations, set icons on the cards, new tokens, and a few brand new cards. The revised and updated Rulebook and Adventure Book are both now unique to this Core Set, and feature painting guides for all of the Heroes and Enemies in the set as well as revised and re-balanced Skill Trees and Upgrade charts for all of the Hero Classes.

For veteran Brimstone players, these revised Core Sets are more than beautiful new miniatures, they are a culmination of polish, balance, and feedback from years of adventures all in one place. For new players, there has never been a better time to saddle up and dive into exploring the rich world and unspeakable horrors of Shadows of Brimstone!

  • These Revised Edition Core Sets are fully compatible with all previously released material for Shadows of Brimstone.*

A limited run of Shadows of Brimstone Revised Core Sets Upgrade Kit containing the substantively changed elements (113 game cards, 3 Hero Character Sheets , 11 Enemy Record Sheets, 6 Frontier Town Locations, and a counter sheet of 41 tokens) was made available. The revised miniatures can be bought separately. Finally, the revised rulebooks are freely available as PDFs.

It is the mid-1880s in the Southwest United States, and the small mining town of Brimstone has found Dark Stone up in the hills; a new precious mineral with magical properties, rarer than gold…and more dangerous! Digging for it greedily, prospectors came from all around, not knowing the consequences of their actions until it was too late! In a flash, the town of Brimstone was consumed, the epicenter of a cataclysmic magical explosion, opening up portals to other worlds down in the mines and unleashing a great darkness to spread across the land! Now hordes of demons pour from the mines to ravage the countryside, and the sky grows black with swarms of nightmarish creatures descending on unwary travelers in the night! While most flee in terror, some heroic individuals come forward to help hold back the darkness, fighting their way into the mines to seal these gateways, and maybe find a fortune of their own along the way! Shadows of Brimstone is a fast-pasted, cooperative, dungeon-crawl boardgame set in the Old West, and mixed with Unspeakable Horror! Each player creates a character, taking on the role of a classic Western Hero Archetype, such as a Bandido, U.S. Marshal, Gunslinger, or Saloon Girl. Forming a posse of Heroes, the players take their characters down into the mines in the foothills surrounding the demonically overrun town of Brimstone. The Heroes can embark on a variety of different missions, from finding and sealing a gateway to another world, to rescuing a farmer’s son who was hauled off in the night by a horrible creature. The Heroes explore a dynamically generated mine, overcoming dangerous encounters and fighting savage creatures, while collecting up useful Gear and ancient Artifacts to help them during their adventures. Heroes can even find portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventure on the other side. Hero characters can be kept from game to game in a campaign system, earning experience and going up in levels to increase their skills and gain new abilities. The Heroes can also visit local Frontier Towns between adventures, spending the hard-earned loot and re-supplying for the next mission. So load up yer’ six shooter, throw on yer’ hat and poncho, and gather the posse, the darkness is coming, and all hell’s about to break loose…in the Shadows of Brimstone!

This game includes a full set of interlocking, double-sided Map Tiles, featuring the Old West Mines on one side and the ancient, frozen-over alien city of the Targa Plateau on the other. As the Heroes step through a gateway to another world, they find themselves in a long dead City of the Ancients!
