Hey guys! I made a variant for Descent 2nd edition, replacing some Rumor cards and Overlord cards to make a random dungeon generator + Gears of War board game style AI system for the Overlord. Do check it out here on my post on BGG, together with the necessary custom card image files!

Bravissimo !

Excellent initiative !

I had expressed somewhere the idea that one of the Descent "expansions" could be a solo/dungeons crawling system.

You showed the way.

I quite surely will try out your system.

Thanks a lot !  :)

This is really awesome, I have been waiting for something like this.  Love decent but my dudes can only play on friday, and sometimes I really want to just play it, so I don't forget how.  Appreciate the work on this, I will probably try it sometime this week, thank you.

No problem! The quest generator idea I totally stole from Battlelore Second Edition's scenario generator: one card for the Hero objective, and one for the Overlord, and voila! Ideas/tweaks/errata suggestions are more than welcome. 


If FFG dudes ever read this and decide to make it into a solo expansion, then PLEASE SEND ME A FREE COPY... ahahahaha!! On a different note: I've got all the expansions so far, and I'm eagerly awaiting the Nerekhall one next year... might have some other cool stuff I can incorporate into the solo variant.
