Seekers of a Hidden Light


Seekers of a Hidden Light is an enhancement for the game Shadows of Malice.  Seekers of a Hidden Light enriches the base game by offering additional opportunities, challenges, and flavor for players seeking an added layer of atmosphere and theme.  Seekers of a Hidden Light introduces three new elements to Shadows of Malice: bait, quests, and Lux.  With bait, the avatars can more easily provoke out-of-lair encounters and influence the type of creatures they encounter... which is especially useful in accomplishing quests!  Quests are specific gathering and slaying tasks of varying difficulty assigned to the avatars by Mystics and rewarded with soulshards, potions, and... Lux!  With enough Lux, the avatars can commission powerful Lux Potions and have potent Lux Runes carved into their items.  Armed with Lux Potions and Lux Runes, the avatars are superbly suited to dispatch the Stronghold Guardians, destroy the Shadows, and thwart Xulthûl's plans for world domination.

Add To Cart

Shadows of Malice is a cooperative game in which 1-8 players work to unseal hidden Wells of Light to prevent the shadow demon Xulthûl from gaining a physical form and overrunning the Realm of Aethos.  The game is suitable for solitaire or multi-player games.

The Wells are located in strongholds scattered throughout the Realm and defended by powerful Guardians. Over the centuries, many of the Wells have fallen Dark, but if the players can find and unseal the remaining Light Wells they prevent Xulthûl from gaining substance and win the game. If Xulthûl’s Shadows, however, manage to defile a single Light Well, the demon will gain a body and enter the Realm. If this happens, the players must defeat Xulthûl in battle to save the Realm.

Players control avatars, heroic champions imbued with unique masteries over Light. Each turn, the players move through the Realm, confronting their fate, battling creatures with deadly abilities, and engaging the services of cities and mystics in order to gather the potions, treasure, and soulshards they will need to defeat the stronghold Guardians and unseal the Wells they protect. The Light or Dark nature of each Well is revealed only when its Guardian is defeated.

The Seekers of a Hidden Light expansion enhances the game by adding bait, quests, and Lux.  With bait, the avatars can influence the types of creatures they encounter; with quests, the avatars can undertake side missions for powerful rewards; with Lux, the avatars can gain extremely powerful Lux potions and Lux runes.

Meanwhile, Xulthûl’s Shadows are thickening in the Shadow Realm and will enter the game at random times in random locations, seeking the one Well that will bring about the entrance of their master.
