Influence Effects Shadow of Nerekhall includes a new quest rule called influence. Influence effects and the corresponding influence tokens are specific to the “Shadow of Nerekhall” campaign and are used only during certain quests. At the start of a “Shadow of Nerekhall” campaign, during Overlord setup, the overlord places the three influence tokens in his play area. A quest may feature up to three different influence effects. The three influence tokens correspond to the influence effects listed in each quest’s influence sidebar. The active influence effect for a quest depends on the influence token that is selected for that quest. Influence Tokens During Setup, when quest rules instruct the overlord to choose his influence effect, he secretly chooses one of the influence effects listed in the influence sidebar of that quest. After the influence effect is chosen, the overlord places the corresponding influence token facedown in his play area and sets aside any unused influence tokens facedown. No hero player should know the color of any facedown or set-aside influence tokens. If a quest features only two influence effects, the token that does not have a corresponding effect is set aside. Some quests instruct the overlord to shuffle the influence tokens listed in the influence sidebar, place one token facedown in his play area, and set aside the remaining tokens. In these quests, no player, including the overlord, should know the color of any facedown or set-aside influence tokens. When the quest rules instruct the overlord to reveal his influence effect, he reveals the chosen facedown token and resolves the listed effects.
