The Aurora Borealis - Fan Expansion for Spirits of the Wild

Welcome to the voyage,

I want to share my observations on the design process thus far for The Aurora Borealis Fan Expansion.

I recently posted my (first ever) fan expansion design for Spirits of the Wild on BGG here: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/187778/aurora-borealis-fan-expansion-...
This is in the "blind-playtesting" stages of the design process, version 1. Please let me know what you think!

I began the design process on 06-06-19 and posted version 1 on 09-06-19.

Here are some simple failures I made so far:

Monster Keep — Traps and Chaos gems

As you all know, I have decided to REMOVE the "symbols" off the cardbacks because I felt they were too "intrusive". The good news is that some Actions like "Soul Gaze" (1 AP) and "Bury Dead" (2 AP) can be done at any time.

However the "Traps" which require 2d6s and an 8 or higher to collect loot were still undecided (how would they be handled?!) Well I have good news that I have found a "simple" mechanic to make traps work.

5 Green Cubes are added to the Loot bag.

The 3D Platform - Rise Above The Second Dimension.

The 3D Platform is a device that was designed and created to be used with a variety of RPG and wargaming miniatures. The 3D Platform is a free standing tabletop display style device design to enhance and augment current RPG's and wargaming games; moreover, is design to create a multilevel, three dimensional, modular, gaming environment for users to manipulate and control; within full size games.
