DEADLY MISSIONS: 5th Edition:  ASCENSION is FINALLY here!  This set takes the world of DEADLY MISSIONS to a whole new level of adventure!  This high quality set of rules features some of our favorite artwork, as well as some new breath-taking characters and NEW rules.

 As with all DEADLY MISSIONS games, 5th Edition features randomly generated encounters, map tiles, treasure and equipment tokens each in a stack, or deck, that you flip and bring into play.  This unique and original set of figures and top-down token creatures ensures it is a different game each time you play.

  • NOTE:  This is a CORE RULE BOOK, and although it supercedes the previously released Core Rules (DEADLY MISSIONS: Fantasy Dungeon, Sector 15 or Steam Pirates, 2nd Edition: The Portal, 3rd Edition: Return to Merlantis, and 4th Edition: Heoric Missions), ALL existing sets are STILL compatible with Deadly Missions: 5th Edition!

This set includes:

  • OVER 100 high quality hand-drawn papercraft figures with front and back images
  • 10 5x5 map tiles featuring beautiful rendered map tiles
  • 21 Tresure Chest tokens
  • 9 Artifact Tokens
  • 29 double-sided Status Tokens
  • 57 Ability Cards
  • 32 character and creature Data Cards
  • 8 blank customizable Data Cards
  • 12 double-sided Door tokens
  • This set also includes a section that allows you to include ANY figures from ANY publisher in Deadly Missions, as well!

Does this contain all the material (tokens, ability, creature & Character cards,etc.) from HEROIC MISSIONS: Deadly Missions 4th Edition? Or, is it just an update of the rules? I know it is backwards compatible but, I am wondering if I need to purchase the other sets for the content.

Thank you, Lee

Thank you for you interest, Lee.

5th Edition has *all* of the rules for every previous release, as well as new/updated ones. If you are primarily interested in just playing the game, I would recommend just purchasing the 5th Edition Ascension book. It has tokens, maps, characters, data cards and *everything* you need to play (except dice... paper dice never work well).

Each set has exclusive characters in it, so if there are certain characters you are looking for, they may only be available in those sets.

I hope this answers your questions.

David and the GMG crew.

File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
