Curios are one of the most important gameplay elements in Darkest Dungeon. Understanding them properly can help you greatly during the game. Having no knowledge about this element can result in a punishment by making a bad decision - this can even end your mission with failure. In this chapter you can find descriptions of all the Curios that were introduced by The Color of Madness DLC.
