Netherworld 2: Back Through The Portals is a booster-only expansion set released by Z-Man Games in April 2001.
It is a 145-card set containing 97 new cards, with rarities divided into Common, Uncommon, and Rare. The other
48 cards are reprints of Daedalus-edition cards like The Golden Gunman, plus two errata cards.
All cards are black-bordered with a white (not foil) spirally circle in the upper right corner. (It is intended to represent a Netherworld gate.)
Distribution was a bit skewed, so even though it's possible to get a set out of two boxes, it didn't happen very often.
This set started to introduce sub-factions within the Monarchs based around Ice, Thunder, Fire, and Darkness so that decks could be
designed using only one of the four.
A large number of cards and ideas are drawn from the Feng Shui RPG, like The Baron, Lucius Centares, Lusignan and his Automaton, The Strangled Stream, and The Bound.
The secret display box message appears on the outside bottom of the box: “There's nothing to see here... These aren't the droids you're
looking for... You can go about your business... Move along”
