Cultist – Inflict fear, life drain your enemies and even summon the undead to fight for you.
Headhunter – Use poison and flaming arrows to destroy your enemies and even take head shots.

Experience and Levelling Up
Each hero has a set of weapons and ability cards that require energy to use, once you have enough energy you can unleash these devastating attacks on your enemies. Exhausted energy turns into experience, gain enough experience and level up your abilities.

Exploring
The dungeon is presented in a deck of cards, cards are drawn each turn for you to explore the dungeon, they include hallways or room cards, for you to construct your dungeon randomly every time. You will encounter traps as you traverse through the dungeon it’s not a safe place to be, as you and your friends will discover.

Looting
If you die your loot either sits by the trap that killed you or with the monster that killed you and runs around the dungeon with it until slain, anyone can claim your loot.

Resurrection
If you have enough resurrection tokens, you may resurrect on any of the resurrection points in the dungeon, these are limited so take care. If at any time a player dies and cannot resurrect you fail your quest.

Monsters
Monsters are a plenty, and they are all heading for you, each monster has a critical success ability, you can aggro monsters and they will make attacks of opportunity. Slaying monsters gains you teef, which you can spend at the sneaky goblin and remember Teef = Money.

Bosses
You encounter bosses in the campaign or randomly after a set time in the solo mode, each boss has its own unique ability cards it will use to decimate you and your friends so beware.
