Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is a standalone game set before the events of Gloomhaven . The game features four new characters - Valrath Red Guard (tank, crowd control), Inox Hatchet (ranged damage), Human Voidwarden (support, mind control) and Quatryl Demolitionist (melee damage, weapon manipulation). obstacles) - which can also be used in the Gloomhaven game original .
The game also includes 16 types of monsters (including seven new standard monsters and three new bosses) and a new campaign with 25 scenarios that invites heroes to investigate a case of mysterious disappearances in the city. Is this the work of Vermlings, or is something far more sinister going on?
Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion is aimed at a more casual audience to get people into the gameplay faster. All hard-to-arrange cardboard map tiles have been removed, and instead players will play on the scenario book itself, which features new artwork unique to each scenario. The final barrier to entry - ie learning the game - has also been lowered thanks to a simplified set of rules and a five-scenario tutorial that will make the experience easier for new players.
