The Universal Overlord Cards are always available to purchase by the Overlord Player. Unlike other Overlord Card Classes, these cards impose no prerequisite before purchasing them, even if the card costs more than 1 XP.
Note that before any game of Descent: Journies in the Dark Second Edition, all players agree on which Expansions to use. Only Universal cards of those expansions will be available to the Overlord Player.
