The Moon Towers is the first major expansion for Paupers' Ladder. It adds a whole new adventure to the game, including 400 new cards, 14 new Birds and 8 new Paupers. They're specific to this expansion too so there's no need to shuffle cards in with or separate them from Paupers' Ladder.
If you scroll down this page you can see everything that's included in The Moon Towers, as well as all the marvellous extra never-to-be-available-anywhere else gifts you get as well.
All being well, The Moon Towers will arrive in the UK sometime around February / March 2022, but given the international shipping situation at the moment delays are possible. I will keep everyone posted though.

In this crowd funding age, it's easy to forget that people giving you their hard earned money several months before they get anything for it is a privilege. I appreciate it more than I can say, and hopefully these gifts say thankyou from the bottom of my dice-obsessed heart!
All these gifts are only going to be available for everyone who pre-orders. And although the plan is to send them out to you with your game, if you'd like to have them early (as a Christmas or birthday present for example), just let me know. They'll be in print and ready for the end of October.
THE MOON TOWERS EXPANSION
The Moon Towers adds a whole new adventure to Paupers' Ladder, bringing over 400 of its own cards. Nearly 250 Region cards let you explore new towns, villages and ruins, find new treasures and fight even more dangerous creatures. The shops have been restocked with over 80 new pieces of equipment, tools, potions, scrolls weapons and rarities. And there's a whole new cast of Paupers to play.
Two new decks are also added: Talents, which give your Pauper a trade from which they can benefit, and Curses, which afflict your Pauper in a variety of ways. Both these decks can be added to Paupers' Ladder, as can the 14 new Bird companions which range from the humble pigeon to the mythical boobrie.
You'll get your copy of The Moon Towers, along with all the extra gifts, as soon as they arrive on our shores, which will be a month or so before it goes to general release.

THE MOON TOWERS COLOURING IN BOOK
(or if you prefer, a monochromatic guide to Brighthelm)
This special book can be a colouring book if that's what you enjoy doing or, if not, a black and white guide to the sights, wonders and dangers the world of Brighthelm has to offer.
There's over a hundred illustrations including towns, rivers, caves, monsters, heroes, equipment and ingredients. Each illustration comes with some information, and there's even some tick lists for you to mark off as you find those things in the game.
ORIGINAL INK ARTWORK
You'll also get a piece of original ink art from one of The Moon Towers' many cards - it could be a spider crab, a coastal village, a paladin, a parrot or an ornate shield. Any one of the many many illustrations for this game.
And of course, it'll be completely unique!
TWO EXTRA PAUPER CARDS
As well as the 8 new Paupers that come with The Moon Towers, you'll also be introduced to these two exclusive characters - Begonia Pope, a seed sifter from Bluevale, and Sid Humphreton, an artisan from Blacksand. Like all the other gifts with this set, these 2 Paupers will never appear anywhere else.
FOUR VINYL BIRD STICKERS
Add some razzmatazz to your wooden bird counters with these natty vinyl stickers. Now you'll never be in any doubt that these humble discs represent your feathered friend and aren't just an anonymous looking puck.
I'm glad you asked that. So much is in there - just about all that could fit in a box measuring 13x25cm. Here's a full breakdown of the contents of The Moon Towers. Click on an image to see all the cards in that particular deck (it will open in a pop up as a PDF).
250 REGION CARDS
Across the beaches, forests, mines, mountains and swamps of Brighthelm you'll find all sorts of adventure waiting for you. There are towns and villages to visit, ruins to explore, citizens to help, monsters to fight, treasure to find and of course, the malevolent Moon Towers...
65 EQUIPMENT, 10 RARITY & 38 QUEST CARDS
