Artifact Quests are a special game mode that adds some new variety / difficulty to One Deck Dungeon, with the bonus of exploring the world's lore. One Deck Dungeon or One Deck Dungeon: Forest of Shadows is required to play, but no additional components are necessary.
To begin an Artifact Quest, choose one of the artifacts from the main page. Each artifact has a brief introduction, followed by the first chapter of the story it will reveal. At the end of each chapter, you will be shown a quest which you must complete to proceed. The quest will specify a specific change you must make to the normal game rules, which will most often make things more challenging. Once you succeed at the quest, you can proceed to the next chapter. If you fail, try again!
You may use any hero for an Artifact Quest, unless it states otherwise. You can use (and will typically want to!) a hero with campaign-sheet progression. The final chapter of each Artifact Quest can be quite difficult!
Playing an Artifact Quest with 2 heroes works the same as with 1. If you play with 4 heroes, double the effect for the quest (ex: Exile 4 black dice instead of 2).
Artifact effects are not cumulative - only apply the current artifact level's effect.
Artifact Quests will be added to the digital version of One Deck Dungeon at a later date.
