Descent


Trials of Frostgate Scenario Available For Descent

One thing about making a game have a digital app component is that a company can release a new scenario and simply make it available for purchase through the app. You can then buy it and play it basically instantly. Such is the case with Trials of Frostgate. It's a new scenario for Descent that's available through the Road to Legend app. Players will have to pass the four challenges that will test every aspect of their being. The reward is a sweet animal tattoo. I know I'd be up for that!

There's sometimes an issue that can come up with our favorite games: having the same thing happen all the time. Even games with lots of randomizing factors can end up feeling a bit same-y if you play them a lot. Well, Fantasy Flight Games is hoping to make sure your games of Descent have a bit more variety with The Delve.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews The Monsters in The Chains That Rust

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 skeletal and ghost army. It's just such denizens that we get a look at today in this preview from Fantasy Flight Games.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews The Scourge From The Chains That Rust

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, in The Chains That Rust, the new expansion for the game coming out soon, the Overlord player gets a powerful, new weapon to unleash on the heroes.

Shards of Everdark Hero and Monster Pack Now Available

Descent is a game of nearly infinite expansions (so it sometimes seems). The original game had quite a lot released for it. Then came the new edition. Well, to make sure you can play all those old expansions with your new rules, Fantasy Flight Games has been coming out with those sets, but with updated rules (also good for those that took 2nd edition as a good place to jump into the game). The Shards of Everdark Hero and Monster Pack is now available.

Having said that, I'm letting you know that they've released the Stewards of the Secret Hero and Monster pack.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces The Chains That Rust Expansion and new Companion App For Descent

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 must do when you play the new expansion, The Chains That Rust. Fantasy Flight has announced this new expansion that takes you deeper into the Mistlands, the domain of Waigar the Undying.
They're also helping out everyone play the game with a new Companion App.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Companion App for Descent

Have you ever gotten together with friends for a gaming night and had some people want to RP and some people want to play a board game? I've had that sort of thing happen before. Usually, the compromise will come in the form of playing an adventure board game that has elements of RP built right into it, such as Descent. Though sometimes finding someone to play the Overlord can be rough. Well, that won't be too much of an issue soon, as Fantasy Flight Games has announced a companion app for Descent.

Enter the Mists Expansion For Descent Now Available

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 for that, particularly if you're a hero in Descent. In fact, the Mists of Bilehall expansion that was just released is all about undead in the mist.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews the Ardus Ix’Erebus Lieutenant Pack for Descent

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.

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