Descent: Journeys in the Dark looks to bring the character building and adventure of an RPG and put it into a board game. Now, if you're like me, you are always looking for that cool, new character to play. Well, Fantasy Flight's helping out with the Lost Legends expansion. There's new standard classes and eight new hybrid classes. What sort of hero/class combinations will you come up with?
In Descent: Journeys in the Dark, players get to choose their own class for their hero. There's several to pick from, but veteran gamers might want some more options. That's where Lost Legends comes in. It's a new expansion announced by Fantasy Flight that includes new standard classes, as well as numerous hybrid classes, greatly expanding your possible options when starting a game.
When your game uses a digital app, it can be a great way to bring in more content directly to your players. And since Descent: Journeys In the Dark from Fantasy Flight uses an app, they've created a new adventure that you can play. Just download the new content and off you go into the wild black under. And even better: it's free.
They're also helping out everyone play the game with a new Companion App.
Ok, I doubt that Kyndrithul actually sounds anything like the world's worst Bella Lugosi impression, but a vampire he still remains, and his Lieutenant Pack for Descent is on display over on Fantasy Flight Games' website.
Though we all know that's basically never the case in a fantasy world. That's where the Stewards of the Secret expansion pack comes in for Descent from Fantasy Flight Games.
