Good morning everybody,
I just purchased all the Descent 2nd edition box sets, and last week I hosted a game night so the five us players could familiarize ourselves with the rules (including the FAQ).
We plan on starting the campaign named "The Shadow Rune", and as the Overlord I'm a bit anxious
So the first game we played was of course First Blood. I lost pretty bad, and all the heroes (geomancer, berserker, treasure hunter and disciple) managed to score all the search items. During "The Campaign Phase", we followed steps 1-8, but when we got to step 3 "Receive Rewards" we were a bit confused.
The "First Blood", scenario already granted, win or lose, 1 experience point to all heroes. Do we get another experience point on top of the one from "The Campaign Phase"? The reason I ask is because some quests like "Rude Awakening" from "Lair of the Wyrm" only grant relics, and I thought step 3 of "The Campaign Phase" was to grant an experience point.
Next game night is in September, and we're starting the campaign over since the introduction didn't count.
We did get one quest completed "The Masquerade Ball", and I whooped on the players. I took the Magus1 card that lets the OL use one action from a monster group to draw that many cards, and keep four cards. It helped a lot, but unfortunately the FAQ reduced it to two cards so when the campaign starts, I'm wondering if that's the first OL card I should take.
I appreciate any clarity you can give on my experience point inquiry.
