GAMEPLAY: A New Finale

First, this expansion can be incorporated into any existing Campaign, adding a new element to your experience! As you progress, you might unlock secret paths of Insight along the way. Should you pursue these paths and complete the various objectives, you and your hunting party could find that the final threat of the campaign might be so final after all ... 

In fact, assuming you complete your normal Campaign objectives, and reach what should have been the standard conclusion, you could discover the secrets to uncover ... Secrets might lead you to the heart of the Hunter's Dream, to the old hunter Gehrman ...

What does this mean for you, brave Hunter? Who is to say ... Perhaps you're better off just having a job in your life. , there was really no turning back was there? Face the truth. Transcend your humanity ... 

Of course, this is all about finding a path to begin with ...

... And, have a final teaser, who is it? Secrets beget secrets, and there may even be older, more eldritch powers at work ... Gehrman was indeed the first and oldest Hunter ... But even he may just be the surface of this unspeakable mystery ...

Yet, that is not all this box provides ...

GAMEPLAY: New Threats and Challenges!

In addition to the above, this box features Reviews another new mechanic to add into Any Existing Campaign: The inclusion of Mini-Bosses!

Looking pour augmenter the difficulty (goal aussi the rewards) in your game? Or perhaps you just want some random threats that might throw your entire exploration into chaos? That's where the Mini-Bosses come in!

The Hunter's Dream Expansion features the following set of Mini-Bosses,

 Winter Lanterns

These nightmarish monstrosities instill the Frenzy condition into those that so much as even gaze over them. Should a Hunter accumulate too much Frenzy, their minds will break, insuring a quick return to the Dream and loss of all accumulated Blood Echoes.

 Executioners

Brutish creatures whose bulk betrays their speed, these foes will be hack and carve through any Hunter who is foolish enough to stand before them.  

While those two are a danger in their own right, there is one more type of Mini-Boss that you'll face ...

Enemy Hunters

That's right, even those dedicated to the Hunt can turn against you. This box will also include Mini-Boss versions of all available retail Hunters - each unique in their specific Trick Weapon attacks. Sure, it was good having a Hunter wielding the cleaving capabilities of the Hunter's Ax on your team, but when they're suddenly against you? Your perception might change. 

Enemy-colored Hunter Hunter figures: Kirkhammer Hunter, Uncanny Ludwig's Holy Blade Hunter, Hunter Blade of Mercy, and Hunter Reiterpallasch.

Kirkhammer!

Enemy-colored Hunter figures: Saw Cleaver, Threaded Cane, Hunter Ax, Ludwig's Holy Blade, Spear Rifle, Chikage, and Beast Claw.

The oldest Hunter in existence, Gehrman has been around since the very beginning. What would drive him to fight those of his kind? What forces and secrets propel him to these acts? Whatever the reasons, Gehrman is the very embodiment of what it is to be a Hunter, and can employ all the tricks of their trade with a complete mastery of their execution.

Moon Presence
