Perdition’s Mouth: Abyssal Rift is intended to be a new kind of dungeon crawl, one that embraces the European school of game design with clever and elegant mechanisms and emphasizes strategy while minimizing luck. Cooperation, planning, and the enemy response deck eliminate the need for chucking dice, creating a tense combat environment with meaningful decisions! The rondels provide another tactical layer, including the enemy’s devious and challenging AI.

The rules allow you to learn to play in 15 minutes, with a typical game round lasting less than ten minutes, even with up to six players, but deep, strategic cooperation will be required for your band of heroes to make it through to the Abyssal Rift and maybe even come out alive.

Perdition’s Mouth is designed to be played as a story-supported campaign over several gaming sessions. In the campaign, you have to fight through at least six increasingly challenging scenarios and the level of success during each adventure has a direct effect on the rest of the story. Can you survive the labyrinth of the insectoid god?


Perdition’s Mouth Hideout: The Hideout expansion for Perdition’s Mouth provides a new Hero along with new scenarios whose objectives are substantially different to those in the main Abyssal Rift campaign, requiring new strategies and styles of play. Even experienced players will find that they need to think creatively to complete these scenarios. If you do manage to complete them, you will have a Hideout at your disposal, which offers a place to trade treasures for healing services or other items, between your campaigns,

Just remember the Cult is relentless, and one day soon you might find your hideout overrun and no longer under your control.

Never presume you are safe; remain vigilant.
