The wild west isn’t the only place where strange, otherworldly terrors are encroaching into the everyday world. It seems as though Japan is also rife with terrible monsters such as Oni, Tengu, and the dreaded Harionago. To keep the world safe, you must lead your heroes into the depths of the temple in order to defeat these creatures before they unleash terror upon the world. That’s the story, at least, in the new Shadows of Brimstone set, called Forbidden Fortress, that’s up on Kickstarter now.
The new set is a full, stand-alone game, but it’s also 100% compatible with all previous Shadows of Brimstone releases (for you really old Privateer Press forumites out there, you’d probably call it “expanshalone.”). Of course, that means the game’s fully cooperative, with players fighting together against the monsters in the game. It’s very campaign-based, with different scenarios each time you play, as well as “restocking back in town” between adventures.
The campaign’s really taken off. They passed their main goal basically immediately and have flown through a bunch of stretch goals already. It’s set to run for another 29 days.
