Life happens, and I get into a funk loosing my painting mojo for weeks on end. It is the way of things.
So to get into the groove again, I decided to do some neglected bits, starting with the Doorways into Darkness portals from the expansion by that very same name for Shadows of Brimstone. After all, no dungeon crawler worth it’s salt will be caught dead without proper 3D-pieces for the doors or portals!
The down to Earth mineshaft portals, and
the extradimentional void portals. The alien writing in the ..ahem…locking chevrons of these demonic-looking Stargates probably read “Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here” or some such.
Yes there are oil lamps on both sides of the mineshaft portals, but as I think they wouldn’t be lighted when the heroes bumble into the mines, I did not do any lighting effects. Yes that is the reason. Not that I am quite lazy these days. Nope not that at all.
Apart from the eight plastic portals, the Doorways into Darkness-expansion also includes a few good equipment cards, which are the only actual additions to the game itself in this expansion. The Portals themselves do not have any rules or special effects apart from (in my opinion dramatically) enhancing the look of the game layout on the table, and therefore enhancing the game experience itself. I certainly prefer to use them.
