Custom Game Elements

The Asylum Demon is a Mini-Boss and functions the same as any other Mini-Boss with the exception that the encounter takes place on a Mega-Boss Game Board. This is because of the Custom Game Element Pillar Smasher. This enables the Asylum Demon and Stray Demon to destroy the pillar terrain features on the game board. If you’re within one node of a pillar when it is destroyed, you’ll immediately suffer one damage and the Stagger condition.

The Asylum Demon and Stray Demon also have a number of sluggish, yet powerful attacks that players can take advantage of. A new ‘wind up’ icon gives players the ability to reposition their character. When the behaviour is resolved you can spend one stamina to move on node in an attempt to move out of the way of the attack.

Campaign Scenario ‘Demon Hunting’

The new campaign from the Asylum Demon starts you in the Undead Asylum and ends with the Anor Londo showdown against Ornstein and Smough. It is directly compatible with the Core Game and requires no additional expansions required.
