Manufacturer: Gary Games
Ascension: Immortal Heroes is both a supplement to Gary Games' full-sized expansion/stand-alone game Ascension: Storm of Souls as well as a stand-alone two-player game in its own right.
As the second set in the series, Ascension: Immortal Heroes completes the Storm of Souls story arc, with players trying to wield the power of past heroes with new Soul Gem cards - representing the trapped souls of heroes from the past - to stop the rebel godling Kythis from fueling his mad ascent to godhood.
As with other Ascension titles, Immortal Heroes is a deck-building game in which players acquire cards from a central pool to add to their decks for use later; at the same time, they also combat creatures and other things that show up in that shared space. Both cards acquired and creatures defeated earn a player points.
Several New Features are introduced with this expansion including:
New Trophy Monsters and Events!
A new way to incorporate events with past expansions
Wield the power of the new Soul Gems to gain access to powerful heroes from the past!
