    alexbobspoons reacted to Durins_Father in A thank you to the community   
    Greetings all,
    Today marks the first anniversary of the Vision of the Palantir blog, and I just wanted to take some time thanking you all for the incredible support I have received. Not only have some members dedicated time to write their own articles on the blog, but I also couldn't have imagined a year ago that people would support the blog through a monthly payment via Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=7631819). I am very grateful for all the positive feedback and the constructive criticism I have received on the articles and hope to entertain you all some more during the next year. https://visionofthepalantir.com/2019/01/20/first-year-anniversary/
    In February and March, I will be rolling out new features to the blog, both for the general audience, and some Patreon exclusive content. I am also thinking about making another poll to see what the community has for feedback and what they like to see in the future. All that is coming soon. I am also brainstorming about exclusive loot ideas for this year, after such great response from the tokens.
    I hope I can count on your support during the next year, and hope that the game will continue to inspire more articles. If you have ideas for community-based articles (like I did for several topics in the past https://visionofthepalantir.com/other/) then feel free to comment them below. I will have a lot of time on my hands starting next month, so I might put those ideas on paper...errr screen.
    Thanks again, and good luck with your games!

    I would look at MOM 2nd edition, not IA or Descent, as the example to follow.
     
    MOM 2nd is driven by the app, it only works with the app, the other two games are supplemented by the app but exist without it. IA is the worst of all three because it also has skirmish play, so two game modes that don't use the app.
    If you look at MoM 2nd edition there is a TONNE of material, including physical with new app content and just pure app content using existing components.
    summary: IA is a campaign based, 1 vs many game, with a skirmish player base as well that was supplemented by a co op app.
    MoM 2nd edition is an app driven co op game for 1-5 players that has no other mode.
    lotr will be an app driven co op game for 1-5 players.

    Played again with this deck, smashed it with questing.
    High questing and lots of allies seems to do very well on this quest if you ignore hitting the dragon

    You can exceed the total progress on a quest card, so you could have twenty-one or more progress on stage three and win with no damage on Smaug.

    Let's all chat about this on BGG and see if it gets Descent into the hotness list again because that's something FFG might notice and consider making more (yeah I know sales will shout louder).

    I think a MoR/MoB/CtR combined "spooky" campaign would be awesome.
     
    A Trollfens/LotW combined campaign with a rivalry or alliance between Bol'Goreth and Valyndra would be cool, too.
     
    There's still a ton this game has to offer, even without more physical content, in my opinion (though, obviously a new box would be great as well).

    That work is in progress for the original The Shadow Rune campaign to run on Valkyrie - check out this thread. It's slowed down a bit due to some issues with Valkyrie, but most of them are resolved or will be with the next major release early next year, so hopefully we'll be able to get this campaign finished
    Once that's done maybe some of the others can follow

    Well i do have the two expansions required and now ordered Belthir off the back of this release - so hopefully others will also buy expansion content to play it which will boost sales and FFG will do well from it. They need to keep their stock levels up though.
    Maybe we will get an undead campaign or trollfens one later as well. A Bilehall campaign would be awesome.

    It might be possible to do some printable maps if anyone has the digital art skills needed- I'm not sure I could do it as I work more with individual photos/images but there's certainly that possibility to make some maps to use instead of tiles (or of course where available tiles do fit and a map can be made from them using existing tiles)
     
    There would be two ways to do the art on such maps- either digitally drawing it if somebody's talented enough or you could photograph real world terrain and work that into map terrain although you'd probably need some other digital art skills to add what you'd need to make this work.
     
    I have some first edition tiles too- as these are no longer available scanning these could be another option for DIY map grids.
     
    Finally on new content I too am working on new stuff- quite a lot of it- going to take a couple of years as it's a massive undertaking (it's a full epic campaign taking in much of the lore of Mennara and it's entities and characters, in two forms - one for Descent and one for Genesys RPG). The plan is to work on one module at a time so it's released in stages over the next few years then after any feedback and playtesting info it can be refined into a final complete version- so there should be new stuff for Descent in future whatever FFG do with it!
     
    I've also been working on/ will be working on some ideas with some other forum users, such as developing and improving Rugal's 'Ascension of Margath' campaign based on that story from Runebound and some other possibilities such as bringing the Descent 1 campaigns I have into D2e with improvements where needed and other projects to port concepts and entities/characters from other Terrinoth games into modules for Genesys RPG or Descent adventures. Rugal's quite keen along with myself to develop something with the Uthuk as they've not popped up much in Descent or Genesys sessions.
     
    Whilst my projects are being designed to fit together as part of a whole with an over-arching storyline about Mennara's next darkness each module will be playable as a standalone so people can pick and choose what most appeals. My storyline's exploring a war-riven Mennara still divided and very much destroyed by years of conflict where it's a bit of a coming together of the evils of Tarakhe (plague and ill health), Waiqar (death and destruction) and the Uthuk (tainted blood and corruption). Can the heroes unpick the facts and fiction behind this 'next darkness' and save Mennara from its oncoming demise?
     
    If I can I'm going to have a seasonally apt module for Genesys RPG 'The Bleakest Winter' taking the heroes into the chill lands of Isheim out soon, which I then hope to convert to a Descent adventure as well. It will take longer to do the Descent conversions of these modules though due to converting things to work within the game (which they may not at first so there may be a need for some playtest tweaking for balance and enjoyable gameplay).
     
    I'm juggling quite a heavy home workload at the moment too, so bear with me if my projects take time, time can be more of an enemy than Terrinoth's fiercest adversaries! They are under development even when I'm not posting updates on my progress with the project.

    Zaltyre, Painkeeper any myself are currently putting together a community expansion. We are in the play-testing stage at the moment. The working title is Weapons of War as it includes Zaltyre's great mini campaign of the same name. Weapons of War will be an expansion to D2e very similar to the official small box expansions (Trollfens, Lair of the Wyrm, etc.). It will include high quality, thoroughly play-tested components developed by the community.
    Obviously, we will not ship physical components. However, we will provide all the digital materials needed together with detailed instructions for how to obtain physical stuff (e.g. cards via printerstudio, minis from Reaper Bones, etc.). As we will not be able to add new map tiles, Weapons of War will include a new, challenging coop variant as an alternative play mode instead. This coop mode is called Road to Peril and will allow playing the Weapons of War and the Heirs of Blood campaigns without a human OL.

    List of components: 

    2 new heroes (1 healer and  1 mage)
    2 new classes 
    2 new monsters 
    1 new condition
    1 new mini campaign (Weapons of War)
    1 new search deck
    components for Road to Peril
    1 rule book

    Ive noticed the news reports get the same title too, so I get excited for an LotR news-piece then find its for the digital, which isnt something I personally am interested in. I am sure this is marketing to attract cross-game but its quite irritating as the games are different so should have differentiation in news and forums.
