Hi all. Next week, my group and I will be starting our first Descent campaign and I'm set to be the OL. Half the group, including me, has played Descent v1, half has not.
I've been reading some of the threads in preparation, and am interested in what Monster Groups people would recommend. I understand it's situational to the quests, such as trying to slow the group with Spiders, but are there any particular groups that shine or consistently under perform? I'd rather not give up an earlier victory or two based on a bad Monster Pick.
I am going to have access to the Descent v1, several v1 expansions, the Conversion Kit and Lair in addition to the base Descent v2. I'd also rather not drop a huge Dragon or Demon group into every encounter either, preferring to ramp things up over time, but if that's what I need to do, I'm open to it. Suggestions and advice?
