It’s only been three decades. The elders still remember it happening. The “uncivilized” tribes were banding together, led by someone (or something) calling itself “The Darkness.” Humanity was being pushed back further and further. In order to defend against this seemingly never-ending onslaught, every effort went towards defeating this nemesis.
To do so, the greatest smiths and enchanters in the land were called together. They created weapons of immense power, which were then granted to the greatest warriors. These new ‘Lightbringers’ were the chosen ones who would save humanity. And it worked. The Darkness and its forces were beaten, crushed, and destroyed, seemingly forever. Seemingly.
The weapons and artifacts of the Lightbringers were scattered, a grim reminder of humanity’s darkest time. If only they were still right at-hand, for the Darkness is returning. In the deep, shadowy places, its Agents are gathering strength. It will take cunning, stealth, and savvy from a new generation of Lightbringers to seek out the artifacts, defeat this ancient enemy, and endure the Massive Darkness!
In Massive Darkness, you’ll join forces with the other players to enter the underground lair of the Darkness.
You’ll work together, jumping from shadow to light, engaging the enemy when the moment is right. The minions of the Darkness can be anything from orcs, to goblin warriors, to giant spiders. You’ll never know what creatures await you around every corner.
Play the quests in order to follow the storyline, or create your own legends using the tokens and modular board tiles. The Lightbringers won this war once before. Now it’s your turn to add your names to the history books!
