    This is more just typical business.  ^^;  No new products have come out for a number of months, so of course space will be cleared for the new hotness.

    I wouldn't say they're typical. While 3 other local game stores collapsed they have doubled in size. They have previously had a ton of space set aside for every single thing descent and imperial assault. For them to be clearancing all of it has to mean that at least in my neck of the woods it just isn't selling.


  2. Well I have to say I haven't gone all in on imperial assault the way I did descent. In descent it made sense to get a lot of things to give my monster groups more diversity in all my campaigns. In imperial assault the imperial groups tend to be so specific to that expansion that there's no point in buying ahead. And as just a campaign player I definitely haven't bought figure expansions. So I guess people like me make the space they devoted to giving each figure a spot are less than lucrative. But I'm kind of worried that skirmish players moved to legion and that's killed the game.

    Since we have orc pirate man, Vincent van Gogh, and circus pants Tahlia, I figured he’d fit right in.

    You’re right though. Am I ever going to see Dezra or Steelhorns taken through an entire campaign? Probably not.

    You know the only thing surprising about oops the orc is that nobody else has a single scar... I would think that venturing into small spaces to fight large dragons would be dangerous business. Tahlia is a good point though....why is she wearing pants AND a skirt? Especially when the other characters make it clear that pants haven't been invented yet?.....? Wait a second...the giants have pants too....is it JUST circus pants that exist in terrinoth....

    That’s the less encouraging part. 😁 This was posted almost three years ago here: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/24159315#24159315

    There’s also four never before seen heroes there too.

    Do you really want face mask no shirt? He's a real weirdo...

    Seriously though as much as I'd like Varakas the dead I don't think the heroes should be a priority for them. At one hero per campaign there's already way more heroes than almost anybody will ever play.

    I hope I'm wrong. I want Lost Legends to be a great expansion, especially since it will likely be the very last official one.

    I hope not, seeing that they're experimenting with print on demand expansion for the game is promising. That said my FLGS just put all of their dwindling descent collection on sale...

    I don't think Asmodee understands what "Print on Demand" means.

    Well it is different than I'm used to but at least FFG is telling us about something for descent sooner than the day after it comes out and fans didn't even have to corner them to get news.

    Part of the fun of Road to Legend is specifically the fact that it allows you to mix and match all your content... Why would you hamstring your experience by trying to avoid mixing stuff? Sure, you could only select a few expansions as your collection but then what's the point having the other ones?

    Because everybody checks out and starts playing phone games if I sort through two bookshelves full of descent content. And just plain forget about trying to bring it somewhere else.

    BUT no Terrinoth AT ALL, no Runewars Miniatures (they had the equivalent Star Wars ones so this adds to the ill portents for the game) and most surprisingly no Heroes of Terrinoth, no Genesys, no Genesys sourcebook (Realms of Terrinoth/Android) plugging. All quite recent products. Maybe FFG missed the class on publicity and brand awareness. In crowded markets things that aren't promoted get forgotten or missed altogether in the first place.

    I was at Gencon50. Legacy of Dragonholt was still fairly new and they were still betting heavily on the success of Runewars. Therefore Legacy of Dragonholt wasn't present at all and while they had the Runewars tables there I couldn't actually get somebody to even explain the game to me. They really are that bad or at least they were...

    Also big changes so it's completely plausible that a bunch of balls got dropped and picked back up and/or that decisions about the future of product lines has suddenly changed drastically

    LOL, after Jukey’s insight, I went and pulled out my Bilehall expansion for Descent.  I was amazed to find that the Bone Horrors, Banshees and a couple of other types were perfectly scaled and actually fit into the Runewars trays perfectly.

    Banshees never made it to descent.
