Moonshae Storms is a complete campaign box expansion for the Dragonfire cooperative adventure card game from Catalyst Game Labs, set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. I say “complete” not because it is a standalone expansion, but rather because it contains the campaign booklet, encounter cards, market cards, magic items, Dragonfire cards, tokens, new character cards, and new advancement stickers for those new character cards. Of course, it is not a standalone product as it requires the base core set and is really more of an extension of the core set.

Moonshae Storms is a high-level campaign, primarily set at Adventure Level 4, and begins at the end of The Wastes of Ancient Empire campaign found in the base set. It then adds a few tweeks to the ending and kicks off the new campaign. Moonshae Storms is a fairly lengthy campaign, coming in at 7 parts. Not all of the parts are contained within this box solely as some of them actually use cards from the base set with some minor changes to create part of the campaign. It’s actually a great way to seamlessly wrap this campaign box into the core set, creating a homogeneous set… kind of like a sequel to the gameplay from the base set.

Besides the campaign itself, there are some new features in this box. First it contains rules for a lycanthropy curse. Second it contains a new character race – Tritons. Third it contains coastal encounters as the campaign is partially a sea-based campaign. There are other new items already mentioned, but they aren’t really new features, just more options from what you already get elsewhere.

Gaming groups that really like Dragonfire and really want to continue on with their gameplay beyond the base set and even smaller expansions should invest in Moonshae Storms. This is a great way to get the full effect of Dragonfire from beginning to end.
