While playing  with the demonologist, i got one of the bizarre random opponent showing up early (the one that looks like an eye on an orange tentacle and run away to the next turn after attacking once and seems to mix your dices)  on the normal mode "Necromancer Tower".
The ability on the thing was "???" . I decided to keep the monster like this instead of transforming it into another imp with the item i was carrying.

I don't know if it's related but a few waves later i noticed a "secret door" appearing

Things weren't going great for me so i was not in position to destroy that secret door until a lucky roll allowed me to capture one of the skeleton knight then 2 or 3 use of the "Pet" ability of the demonologist allowed to me to destroy the secret door.

That lead me to this special stage
 
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
the less i can say is that things stopped there, as the bad luck i had in rolls and in shop (despite the money given by the chest there) wasn't helping much.

Anyone got this and completed the stage to see if it unlocks something ?
Is the ability of that eye tentacle thingy allowing to add a "secret door" to a scenario ?

I tried playing that necromancer tower a couple of time more after that but never got this "secret door" appearing again, so maybe it's really related to the bizarro monster as this thing didn't appared again in those couple of replays.

Interesting find. I replayed it and when I had the apparition captured I also got the secret door when playing as necromancer. That chest "tower riches" gave a bunch of gems and gold, basically a super chest, but nothing more even upon finishing the scenario. I also had a loot gnome instead of apparition on one of the runs, and capturing him did not do anything new.

Nice, so it seems that's indeed the use of the Apparition , generating this secret door.
I wonder if it only happens in this Necromancer Tower scenario or if it can do in other ones

The appariton actually tells you which side you will roll upon rerrol (it shakes abit). But in this scenario it seems to also find that secret door, I captured it in few scenarios, but did not have any secret doors, so it works only for some probably. I played it again, and the second time I got lore chest instead of tower riches, but it worked the same giving just gold and gems.

I wonder if capturing that assassin would unlock the assassin secret class though...

P.S. Can confirm, capturing the assassin and completing the scenario unlocks assassin.

Wanted to post that confirmation but you beat me to it, excellent finding about the assassin theory :

(did it in normal mode, so no need to masochist yourself in hard mode :D )
It looks like buying a capturing dice will increase (or force) the chance of the apparition monster to appear.
Make sure to buy more capturing dice though for when you'll be able to get the assassin after that.

Noticed that Circadian Dice will go commercial and have a steam release on the 11th of July
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1893620/Circadian_Dice/
New version should have 2 more classes, new abilities and redone visuals and effects.

Best of luck to them. This was a good few weeks for me. Very well-designed experience.

I should add this to my laptop. I keep forgetting to play it, but I've always enjoyed it.

Just got an email from them letting me know about the updates. It also let me know that since I had bought the game on itch.io that I was also getting a steam key. I'll have to give the new version a whirl!
