First, I don't have the expansions yet.
Second, the big question:
Are the expansions part of the same campaign as The Shadow Rune or are they their own?
What I mean is, if we play The Shadow Rune and then move onto one of the expansions, do the heroes have to start at level one again?
One of the expansions sort of implies that it is happening at the same time and in addition to The Shadow Rune (Lair of the Wyrm). The question here is, if you play both The Shadow Rune and the Lair of the Wyrm in some sort of alternating fashion, would the heroes or Overlord become too powerful by the end of either one?
I'm wondering because I read the heroes must start from scratch for each campaign. On the descriptions of the contents of the Expansions I see new classes but not new skills for the previously released classes.
This brings up a skills question, as well, but I'll start another thread for that one.
