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 Ix’Erebus for Descent. He’s getting his own Lieutenant Pack and today Fantasy Flight Games is giving us a look inside it.
As with all expansion packs like this, you don’t just get a little mini to use instead of a cardboard token. The set also comes with a 10-card Plot Deck. These cards will let you use Ardus Ix’Erebus in any Descent campaign you want. This will let you bring his battlefield command to your tabletop. Ardus Ix’Erebus is known as a tactical genius, and that’s reflected in the cards, letting him get as much as he possibly can out of the monsters working for him. It might seem like a good idea to kill off that piddly, little monster, but if you do, there’s a chance that all the others might get stronger for when they come looking for revenge. There’s not a choice you want to have to make: not take out any monsters, for fear of them all getting stronger, or having to deal with those beefed-up enemies later on.
Pre-orders are available now if you’d like to get one for yourself.
