What is Machina Arcana (Second/Third Edition) about?

Machine Arcana is a steampunk horror board game for 1 – 4 players who take the role of explorers. The individuals represent a group sane enough to resist the tide of darkness, but insane enough to choose to confront it. In an ancient subterranean complex whose origins are unknown, they embark on a perilous adventure. Monsters drawn from the Cthulhu Mythos await the expedition with the intent to eviscerate and devour them mercilessly.

Each map tile sheds blood as it is explored. As the explorers evade and fight, they are filled with traps and features that provide an edge. There are different types of items that can be found. The concepts of steampunk are translated through augmentations and gear upgrades that give them some fighting chance. The group will need to resolve exploring events, create ongoing effects, and complete side quests to survive their ominous journey.

As the explorers approach, the horrors obstruct them with a multitude of devious schemes to hinder their progress.

The story is broken into scenarios, each of which is its own game with chapters that must be completed in order to reach the endgame – a final battle that decides the fate of mankind.

Death, however, does not end the game. Your new goal as a dead explorer will be to rid the game of explorers. You will gain control of monsters as a dead explorer.
In addition, there is no need for a game master, nor are there special conditions based on the number of players, and both duration and difficulty settings can be changed.
