This is an expansion and requires the base game to play.
Tainted Grail: Echoes of the Past contains a personal achievement sheet for each character from all three campaigns, including Niamh. This sheet lists 9 special conditions that trigger 9 unique Memories – if you fulfill any condition during the game, you can mark it off and read an appropriate Memory from the “Echoes of the Past” brochure.
These memories have a small gameplay effect (sometimes positive, sometimes negative). But as you progress through the game, and your Character progresses in their story of self-discovery or reconciliation, you will also gain some interesting rewards.
Every time you complete a block of three achievements, you receive a Legendary Action card that you keep by your Character Board – you can use it once to perform a single action so epic that bards will sing stories about you in the years to come. Then, the Legendary Action card is discarded from the game.
If you manage to trigger ALL basic memories, you progress to the final, tenth entry in the brochure that contains a personal side-quest where your hero will confront their worst fears, weaknesses, or a personal nemesis. Should they emerge victoriously, they receive a special golden Legendary Action card that gives your character permanently a second gameplay action!
The sheets can be used as a legacy element, allowing your hero to start a new game with a part of their story and some Heroic Feats cards already unlocked.
Effectively, this add-on introduces interesting personal objectives for each of the characters, and a small legacy element, at the same time reinforcing the character backstories and providing a deeper look into the world of Tainted Grail.
