Does anyone know the full list of 6 lieutenants in Descent 2e? We know there are three new ones. Sir Alric Farrow looks to make a return too. I assume the other two are 1e lieutenants.

The three new lieutenants are Splig the goblin, Belthir the half-dragon, and Zachareth, human Baron of Carthridge. The three returning lieutenants are the Farrows, Lord Merick, Sir Alric, and Lady Eliza.

No, I'm not paid by FFG, but I did enjoy writing the extra details in this post. Not sure why but it was fun.

I was sad to see how few of the first edition lieutenants didn't make the cut.  I thought for sure that there would have been at least two more, but maybe they might throw them in later on.

When I was talking to the designers at Realms, they were pretty confident that more of the lieutenants would likely be returning further on down the road in expansions and such.  If that's any consolation.

If you're disappointed, look at it this way: 6 lieutenants are featured in this campaign's quests (20 quests total). I doubt we'll even get to see them all in a single campaign where we play less than half the available scenarios. How many more lieutenants could they cram in there unless almost every quest featured one?

I just figured that one or two of the larger lieutenants would have made it over.  I always liked Thaadd the Destroyer & Kratz the Plague.  It would have been nice to see something other then human types.  Don't get me wrong.  I am still happy they are keeping around the old lieutenants.  Lets hope that some others will make a comeback.

Actually, just about every quest does feature one, although most only have the lieutenant show up in the second encounter.  Both finales feature several, in fact.  It makes sense, really, as they've got cards for both act 1 and act 2 for all the lieutenants.  Also, all the act 2 quests have tie-ins to the corresponding act 1 quest in the descriptions, sort of explaining why you had to have won (or lost) the act 1 quest in order for the act 2 quest to "show up".  So it only makes sense that the lieutenant that shows up in the act 1 quest also shows up in the act 2 quest.

Nice, sounds great, with pretty meaningful narratives. Can't wait to get this!
