Beneath Nexus + Myths and Monsters Mini Expansion
Playing Time: 60-90 mins
Centuries ago, the city of Nexus was built around a well of magical power hidden deep below the earth. Over the ages, Nexus soared to incredible wealth and power. Wandering tribes flocked to the city to worship and learn from the mysterious magicks beneath it.
As Nexus grew, more and more power was drawn from the well. And as more power was drawn, the more unstable the energies of the well became. After millennia of providing Nexus with knowledge and might, the well gave the city something new. Blight.
Beneath Nexus is an asymmetrical dungeon crawling card game for 3 to 6 players. One player acts as the Blight Lord, an evil overlord who corrupted the great city of Nexus centuries ago. All other players play the heroes who have come to Nexus to reclaim it from the powerful Blight Lord.
Beneath Nexus’s fantasy theme was inspired by the big tabletop rpgs like D&D, Pathfinder, and Dungeonworld. Players of Magic: the Gathering, Sentinels of the Multiverse, and Lunch Money will recognize the card-based mechanics and gameplay.
We at Silverclutch Games created Beneath Nexus for hobbyist gamers to introduce casual gamers and new players to fantasy adventure. Beneath Nexus can be learned within 10 minutes and is both competitive and cooperative with its one vs many format. Hobbyist gamers will find the unique heroes and Blight Lords engaging and challenging to master due to variable player powers, difficult dungeon cards, and the vast array of monsters to combat with their own unique abilities.
The Myths and Monsters Mini Expansion introduces 7 new cards to Beneath Nexus to expand the base game, 5 new monsters, 1 new Relic, and 1 new Cursed Relic.
Dy-Buk – Souls of the dead that lurk in the shadows of Nexus. They have long forgotten who they are and spend their days in fear, hiding from the more powerful denizens of Nexus.
Amano-Jaku – Evil spirits that have been drawn to the dark power of the Ether Well. The power of the Blight has turned them into the embodiement of curses and ill intent.
Aketeko – Fiendish little monsters that appear to be an animated hand of a red ape. They graft themselves on to corpses and use the stolen bodies to harrass unsuspecting heroes.
Dark Construct – Once powerful battery contructs that helped scholars and mages in their research into ether, the Dark Constructs now serve as vessels for spreading the power of blighted ether.
Kappa-Hama – Wise men of Bara-hama that came to Nexus to cleanse it, their faith in the Holy Fire was not enough to protect them from the corruption of the Blight.
Muramasa – The greatest sword ever made by the greatest swordsmith who ever lived, it was forge with spite and ill intent. Able to rend any foe, it deals as much harm to it’s wielder as it’s victims.
Masamune – Made to atone for the creation of the Muramasa, the Masamune was made to defend, not attack. Every stroke channels healing power into the allies of the wielder.
The expansion includes:
– 12 total cards
– 5 new Monster cards (2 copies of each)
– 1 new Relic
– 1 new Cursed Relic
