Bazaar Monuments

When using the Covenant expansion, at the start of the game, the app will tell you to replace a different building in each kingdom with a foundation for a monument. Each type of building has two options. In this case, the kingdom without a bazaar will either be building the Nightmare Cage or the Arch of the Golden Sun.

The Nightmare Cage

The Nightmare Cage is a portal to a fiery dimension. The cultists who worship at the Nightmare Cage throw offerings into the void at the center of its maw. Brave heroes may venture into the maw in order to gain some of these treasures.
The Heroes must end their turn next to skulls to generate offerings to this building. 

After it is built, the heroes may sacrifice warriors to this building in order to eliminate foes from the board. Additionally, the app will generate new dungeons to delve and retrieve valuable resources from within.

Arch of the Golden Sun

The Arch of the Golden Sun was crafted by the archwrights of old. Back then, stories said that walking through the arch would bless the tools and instill the pilgrim with virtue. However, stories faded, and the arch fell into ruin. It would be a powerful tool against the Adversary if it can be repaired.

Building the Arch requires some forethought, as Heroes must stay in their space for an entire turn to create offerings.

Once built, the Arch gives a powerful event effect, and an even more powerful reinforce effect, both involving treasures. Each month, the Arch will deliver free treasures to a random hero. When reinforcing, players may spend 5 spirit to gain 2 treasures and a virtue. Better than reinforcing at a Citadel.

Would you please allow us to see what the Undaunted Aegis is? It may help to get the final backers needed to unlock it.

I don't think we have to worry about unlocking that achievement. We're almost there as is!

Are the monuments going to come with the same finish on them as the minis in the dark hordes expansion?

perhaps nightmare cage, is it an antithematic monument for a god of light? some more lore would be necessary to make sense of it

For the Arch, the wording of the offering and the wording of the description seem to allude to different things. The offering says "without moving" which to me would suggest not specifically using the Move action of the middle of the turn, not using a potion that allows moving a hero etc. The description, though, says "must stay in their space" which would mean using the Spymaster banner action that doesn't say "move" and instead says "place your hero on a space" wouldn't cause the offering, but doesn't sound to me like it should be considered a "move" I think that could use some clarification.

House rules for the win on that one if they don't!

That's metal af
