I'm surprised to see that the Uthuk race is not present at all in Descent, no more in the second edition (except the uthuk demon trap card)

 

Battlelore 2.0 comes with news figures of the uthuk, and now, i'm asking myself : why ?

 

I hope an expansion will comes with uthuk monsters, heroes, cards, tiles, and more ! why not a campaign entierely in this part of the Terrinoth world ?

As far as why they aren't in any Uthuk in the current material, I'm guessing it's just a matter of FFG not wanting to spread the story too thin with too many enemies.  Hopefully they will make an Uthuk expansion at some point.

 

I'm sure we'll be flooded with homebrew Descetn cards for the Battlelore minis soon enough, though.  If FFG for some reason is not willing to make an expansion centered on the Uthuk, the fans will no doubt do so in the quest vault.

There is an Uthuk trap OL card... but one can reasonably expect Uthuks to become more present in expansions (just plain guesswork of mine).

I wonder if FFG reads sometimes the forum, or we are just dreaming ?

I would assume they have someone who does that and makes notes on important things.

What's a Uthuk? What can you compair them too? They like a Bloodthirster from Warhammer? That would be awesome!

They look like spiky barbarians to me.  I don't know anything about them either, but here's a googling

Uthuk are half-demons.

 

Here are some pictures (from RuneAge, French version) :

FFG employees definitely do monitor these forums, although they rarely post directly.  They routinely incorporate fan ideas into new expansions - which is not to say that everything fans suggest will show up in print, mind you, but they're definitely listening and cherry-picking the ideas they like.

 

What's a Uthuk? What can you compair them too? They like a Bloodthirster from Warhammer? That would be awesome!

 

The Uthuk Y'llan are a bunch of human barbarian tribes who have made a blood pact with demons from the Ynfernael.  They were defeated in an attempt to conquer the world in the ancient past, but have recently begun to show more activity along the northern borderlands.  Many fear a second invasion is imminent (as portrayed in Runewars, and presumably Battlelore 2.0 now that it's part of Terrinoth.)

 

They're kind of like Chaos in the Warhammer settings, I suppose.  Except they all worship Khorne. =P

Thanks Steve-o they sound pretty cool. I play with Highelves and I think playing against Chaos is never a breeze. Can't wait for Battle lore to come out might check it out I love games like that. Should get some lore out of it.
