Terrinoth’s Mistlands aren’t someplace many people go to vacation. You’re not going to see travel agents selling holiday package deals to visit it. I’d go out on a limb and say that’s mostly because of all the undead who would be all too happy to add you to their skeleta...

Descent is a one-vs-many game. While most players take on the role of a hero, one gets to play as the Overlord. They’re basically the “Dungeon Master” player. But unlike an RPG, they’re not out there to just tell a good story for the players, they’re there to win! Well, ...

I’ve always been a fan of a nice walk through the fog. As a morning person, this gets to happen on several occasions. However, if that fog is filled with undead, it’s not always such a good thing to be walking around in. However, walking around in it is just what your heroes in Descent [&...

One of my favorite atmospheric phenomenon is fog. Honestly, I just love the stuff. It’s one reason I like winters in Georgia. There’s generally a proliferation of cool, foggy mornings. Sure, spooky things can hide in the mist, particularly the walking undead. You always gotta watch out fo...

Those pesky undead. They seem to show up at the most inopportune times. And not all are created equal. While most of us gamers might look at a skeleton, even one in some armor, and go, “Meh, it’s just a skeleton.” That’d be a very dangerous thing to do when it comes to Ardus I...

Bleh! Bleh! I vant to suck your blood! Bleh! Bleh! 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....
