Hey guys, I'd like your thoughts. A bunch of buddies and I are going though the original campaign of Descent and we just completed The Cardinal's Plight with me being the overlord and the 4 of them heroes. They won the intro and A Fat Goblin but I succeeded in Castle Daerion and The Cardinal's Plight. In Castle Daerion I won by pure luck, I succeeded in the very first search token and just railed Sir Palimon but in The Cardinal's Plight I succeeded in raising 2 zombies before before the heroes defeated Sir Marrick Farrow and advancing to encounter 2. I'd like to hear from the community their thought on The Cardinal's Plight and future quests, it seemed like the heroes were behind the 8-ball right at the beginning - they have to find the key to access the door and fight the zombies but while they're looking my zombies just wreck the cardinal. Even with just 1 master zombie and 2 basic zombies I just pound him into the ground. Now, the heroes knew they could activate the altar to heal the cardinal but were my rolls just particularly hot on attacking him of do some quests just favor the overlord and others favor the heroes?
I'm concerned cause my group of buddies take the game in stride and know we're just having fun but I don't want them getting discouraged.
Thanks in advance!
