    Zaltyre reacted to Sadgit in Red Scorpion   
    To my knowledge there is no single instance of a player being allowed to roll dice for another player. Unholy Bond is the only example. Unfortunately, some of the cards of Lost Legends do have typos and inconsistencies when it comes to wording especially compared to other official products. This indicates that Lost Legends might not have enjoyed as rigorous proof-reading as other expansions.

    Here are some examples:
    Lorekeeper - All-Knowing - "Apply +1 [Knowledge]" should be "Apply +1 to your [Knowledge]"
    Lorekeeper - All-Knowing - "If you pass, unexhaust each of those cards" should be "If you pass, refresh each of those cards"
    Lorekeeper - Ancient Remedy - "You gain + X health" should be "You gain +1 Health"
    Ravager - Momentum - "Melee" should be in italics
    Ravager - Charging Assault - "before the dice are rolled" should be "before dice are rolled"
    Elementalist - Sun and Sea - "exhuast" should be "exhaust"
    Elementalist - Nature's Embrace - comma missing after "When you use Tide"
    On many cards "one" should be replaced by "1" when it comes to quantifying various tokens.
    On many cards "discard a Condition" should be replaced with "discard a Condition card".
    More importantly, the wording of Unholy Bond enables combos with all abilities that allow you to reroll dice essentially allowing the Soul Reaver to reroll the monster's attack dice twice or even more (the Soul Reaver's Galvanize "reroll any one die", Window Tarha's Hero ability, the bard's Rehearsal, etc.). Reynhart the Avenger-Soul Reaper could even use his Heroic Feat (if he rolls an X) to recover his fatigue. Also on previous components a simple "reroll a die" never allows players to reroll dice of other players. That would essentially put all reroll abilities in Staff of Shadows territory. I assume that this is not intended. Staff of Shadows is the only card that forces other players to reroll dice and it specifically states "or force a reroll of any 1 die". 
    Therefore I suggest to use "Use when a monster performs an attack that targets you. Choose any or all attack or power die and force the monster to reroll those dice.

    I'm not one of those things, but as a standard firefox user who keeps Chrome around mostly for extensions like the cardviewer, please help. I'd love to have D2e card viewing function in Firefox.

    Zaltyre got a reaction from Charmy in Missing 12 heroes from Conversion Kit   
    I've thought a considerable amount about this, and the consensus between myself and most of the group I play Descent with is the following (for these 4 heroes):
    Varikas the Dead: Same as the CK except a tweaked hero ability.
    Hero ability: At the start of your turn, you may suffer 1 wound to recover 2 fatigue."
    Red Scorpion: Same stats as CK, but with a new hero ability and feat.
    Hero ability: "At the start of your turn, you may suffer up to 3 wound to recover an equal amount of fatigue. At the end of your turn, you may suffer up to 3 fatigue to suffer an equal amount of wound."
    Heroic Feat: Use at the end of your turn and test each attribute. Until the start of your next turn, your defense results gain shields equal to the number of successes.
    Brother Glyr: Same stats as CK. New hero ability, slightly tweaked feat.
    Hero ability: At the start of your turn, choose 2 heroes within 3 spaces of you. Each chosen hero gains up to 2 MP.
    Heroic feat: (Same as CK, but an adjacent hero gains the damage reduction as well).
    Mad Carthos: Same as CK, with minor changes. His hero ability should work for first use of EACH skill that costs 1 fatigue, not just first use of 1 skill. His heroic feat should apply to Rune weapons in addition to Magic weapons.
     
    We played with this party a few times, it worked rather nicely. I would have liked for that campaign to have gone further...

    I am very interested in the answer to this question, as I'm sure many Descent players are.
    However, I would also like to add:
    Are there any FFG efforts to patch or update the Descent Quest Vault? There are open technical bug reports which have not received responses since before 2017. A number of users are actively trying to build a fan-content community, but are hitting a stone wall. A "development suspended/cancelled" notice as a bare minimum would be polite. Thank you for your time!

    What is the future of Descent ...
    Will FFG ever produce the missing 12 Heroes from D1e for D2e?
    Will there be any further development for D2e (*** NOT *** for the app, but physical content)?
    Will there be a D3e?
    EDIT: Why is the D2e Quest Vault and its various issues, bugs, etc. completely ignored?  It started as BETA about 5+ years ago, and continues in that state today.  There would be far more community development for the game if the software simply worked.  There is already an extensive bug report thread for the vault, so all it takes is someone at FFG to pay attention.  If you don't want to maintain it anymore, would you be willing to provide access to the code, so that the community could host it and maintain it?

    With the wonderful Mists of Bilehall tiles now in the Quest Vault, I've gone ahead and made another mini-campaign, requiring "Mists of Bilehall" and "Manor of Ravens".  Travel icons are listed in each quest's description. 
    1. Setup: Perform all normal rules for game setup. Each hero receives four experience points and 100 gold, and the overlord receives four experience points. Then, players perform a Spend Experience Points step and a Shopping step. Players may save any unspent gold and experience points to spend in future Campaign phases. 
    2. Travel to first quest.
    3. Unwelcome Guests 
    4. Campaign Phase, travel to second quest.
    5. Den of Fell Wolves
    6. Campaign Phase, travel to third quest.
    7. Intangible Terror
    8. Transition to Act II
    9. Campaign Phase, travel to finale
    10. Waste Not 
     
    If you enjoy the quests, please let me know. If you've got suggestions for how they can be improved, please let me know that, too!
     
    Enjoy!

    I very much agree. I don't know about the general legality of gaining a condition card you just discarded (seems like one of those nonsensical things that no one figured needed an explicit rule), however I am pretty certain that "Blight Extraction" should not work when you're removing the condition from yourself to gain 2 essence.
    Alternative reword:
    "Each time you use Stream of Life, the chosen hero may also discard 1 Condition. If another hero discards a Condition from this effect, you may gain that Condition and place 2 damage tokens on Essence Harvest."
     
    All-knowing is its own beast.
