In this article we will explore one of the new features in The Reaper expansion called Warlock Quest Cards.
Warlock Quest Cards
The Reaper expansion includes 12 Warlock Quest Cards that form a new deck. Each card represents a different quest that a character can complete in order to gain a Talisman. The deck includes the original six quests from the Warlock’s Cave space, as well as six entirely new exciting quests.

Characters may obtain these quests by visiting the Warlock’s Cave space, but instead of rolling the die, players draw one card from the Warlock Quest deck.
Adding several new quests to the mix creates more variety and flavor. Ever wonder why the Warlock needs you to take a life from another character or to deliver one of your Followers? Each card includes a story of the quest told by the mighty Warlock himself! Tim Uren and Dan Clark wrote fantastic flavor text that really brings each quest vividly to life.
If players choose not to use this new deck and prefer to roll a die at the Warlock’s Cave instead, the cards can act as a handy reminder. When a character receives a quest by rolling the die, his player simply takes the corresponding Warlock Quest Card to remember which quest he must complete.
The Warlock Quest Cards can also be used to speed the game along: at the start of the game, each player draws one card at random.
Thank you for joining me on this preview of the Warlock Quest Cards. In my next article we will examine the dreaded Grim Reaper!
Until then, happy gaming!
