TLC_new-scene-shot

Ancient Terrible Things: The Lost Charter is a travel expansion pack for the pulp horror dice game, Ancient Terrible Things. The expansion includes 54 new, unique cards, including Encounters, Achievements, Feat and Swag, travel-ready Location cards, Character Curses, three new Revelation dice, a 5th playable character and a full colour rulebook with details of travel set-up,  new card effects and rules for solo play and a 5-player game. Additionally, the expansion comes in a compact travel-friendly box with a raised dice-roller platform.

The expansion introduces new mechanics and card types to compliment the base game, without adding unnecessary complexity. These include:

Revelation Encounters – which add a Revelation die to your dice pool. Revelation die can only be used for overcoming the Encounter dice combination, and not for gaining Resources.

Warning Encounters - in which a Terrible Thing token is removed from the Expedition track if you fail to overcome the Encounter, but the token is not added to your stash.

Event Encounters – which replace the Location Action on a Location, and introduce ongoing game effects, until a character thwarts the Event.

Obsessions – Characters begin the game with a unique Obsession, that can only be discarded by Foreshadowing an Encounter. Foreshadowing involves intervening in an opponent’s failed Encounter, and successfully overcoming that Encounter.

Release date:  December 2015.
