I am new to the vassal system. Could I get some help? How do I get these Silken Thread files loaded as a module? Thanks in advance.

Morthai …

I have read through this entire thread, as well as have visited BGG and referenced similar threads.  I really like what you have done with this quest.  Quite frankly, I am not a creative individual … my mind simply doesn't work that way.

I am curious about one thing.  I have seen references to various vassal files, rar files, etc.  Have you considered, or have you already created a PDF of this entire quest?

That is the thing I was looking for most.  I did not see anything within the files section on BGG, nor within the actual thread.  Is this something you are going to do?

Also, after actually re-reading the threads and comparing the dates of individual entries, it appears like you may not yet be completed within everything.  If I am reading this correctly, you are actively working on ACT II encounters, or am I wrong?

Any information you would care to provide would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Act II encounter as well the finals are done and i am working on the additional supply (items, heroes, relics, lieutenants, monsters, skillcards, etc.)
as soon i finished that, I will create a PDF file consisting of all quests and additional stuff. I just wait for the Templates for the PDF files from Adam Sadler.


thanks for your interest. As soon the PDF is ready I will post it here as well.

Thank you very much for the update.  My friends and I eagerly await the PDF.  Figure it will get done way before I ever see FFG's Wyrm expansion.  Heh.

We are balancing the content and maps a bit around.

My proofreaders extinct my typos.


And several persons helping me to assemble all components for the PDF

The awesome work from the wive of the BBG user Chubby can be seen as the cover picture for the booklet!!!

Morthai …

Did you ever completely finish this quest?  Did you find anyone to assist with turning everything into a PDF?  I was just looking for an update.

I am working hard on it - but especially spellchecking is damn time consuming!
Act I should be completely done now, exept maybe minor issues.
Enjoy!

Thanks in advance.

I haven't seen a tileset for D2E online yet, but it's easy enough to make your own, provided you have a scanner to scan in the tiles.  You can look at the tilesets packaged with the program in a text editor to see how it works.

Do you have a target date for the Part 2 and Part 3 PDFs for the campaign?

Thanks.

part 2 is almost finished - just need to design the backgrounds and have a final spellcheck after the last 2 rounds. Approximately 3-7 days depending on my other workload.

Thanks.  Have a 5 day Descent marathon planned for the end of the month, and was hoping to utilize your alternative quest.

Today I finally finished the hard design work of all pages of the pdf file! It might need a last spellcheck but for now it is ready to be published as a nice complete product of the effords of all my helpers and countless hours of work! Behold, here we go (whopping 69mb full of descent 2.ed.)!

Morthai …

I downloaded the PDF.  I briefly scanned it (not thouroughly read), and I can't find the following:

1) The actual page for the overall quest, showing which is the intro quest, what are the ACT I and corresponding ACT II quests, etc.

2) Custom cards

Am I blind?  Have I somehow missed this?

Will
