  1. It's already been done, twice. This rule set needs a third threat system about as much as it needs another page of damage tokens. Oh yeah, the problem lies in that he'd have to rewrite (and do a ton of playtesting) on each encounter that he'd want to port over to a different system.
  2. I suppose you can reinvent the wheel if that's what floats your boat.
  3. https://www.dictionary.com/browse/oxford-comma "Oxford comma a comma between the final items in a list, often preceding the word `and' or `or', such as the final comma in the list newspapers, magazines, and books "
  4. I can answer that, the answer is no. Because it's not ok to swipe someone else's intellectual invention and sell it. Lawyers have been pretty clear on that.

  6. It's called threat, descent 1ed had that system and ffg brought it back for Imperial assault, they just canned it for 2ed along with a number of other things because of the criticism that the game was too complicated. Unfortunately for 2ed the threat system does work much better, giving even the weakest monsters a good reason to hit the table.
  7. Well I'm not super into a ton of new weapons just for the sake of a ton of new weapons. BUT a bunch of hybrid classes are about to come out, I kind of wonder if they wouldn't benefit from some support...
  8. Thanks Nick, it's great to see FFg moving out of the rut of every expansion having to check off specific boxes in terms of content. I love that the Elementalist class doesn't fall into the same card pattern that we're used to and I love seeing that FFg is looking at print on demand content to continue physically supporting what I expect to be descent's largely digital future.
  9. Seeing Trenloe as a scout really blew my mind
  10. There won't be new physical content in the near future, if there was releasing lost legends this way would make zero sense. This is to tide us over for a while.
  11. The issue was that ffg convinced a lot of people to buy into the game for RtL co-op only. Canning it a year later would have rightly have left quite a few people feeling suckered. Actually the ceo stepped down and suddenly games that were being neglected got attention and at least runewars which was getting a ton of attention looks to have been canned on the spot. Yeah it's called LotR Journeys in the Middle-earth
  12. Price-wise it's a great value and a great game. I'm sure there will still be copies around when you put together the money for it.
  13. Sorry to hear that, it's a great game and still makes it to the table here because of its non campaign nature.
  14. I don't have some of the lieutenant minis for 1e because there's never been a need for them *shrug* I've gotten the conversion kit so that minis from my second copy of 1e can fight alongside their 2e companions ergo I've never been leading the crusade for content I already have but if I could find a newer sculpt of Varikas anywhere in the terrinoth universe I would end up getting it...
  15. The threat system was built into Descent 1ed and it worked well. Removing it from the core game was a mistake which is why they retrofitted it back in with the lieutenant packs AND having learned their lesson included it in the base game for Imperial Assault. Also I expect to pay about $2 for a mini that fits in a single square. This is even proving true in Runewars... Dude, knock it off.
  16. With the exception of Eliza Farrow I don't think any of us drink alcoholics.... Seriously though with the base you get a campaign, with the big box expansions that are significantly cheaper than the core you also get a campaign. So I feel like I'm winning out there, especially since I don't need to learn a whole new rules system. It's after that where things kind of head down hill... By the time we get to lieutenants it's pretty ridiculous. It made sense in 1st edition, there were a bunch of different lieutenant options. Most of which you would never use and so instead of paying for them all for no reason you'd just buy the single mini you wanted at a price which was the going rate for single mini's at the time. Now you're paying 5 times the going rate for single mini's just to get the threat mechanic back which should have been part of the base game to begin with...
  17. Have they ever put cardboard in a print on demand expansion? They certainly worked to get around it in the coops...
  18. And Runebound, I literally just had a thread about that... It's more than rumors The world championship prize was supposed to be: "The Greatest Prize in Gaming, the chance for the World Champion to work with the game's developers to inspire the design of a future card." When they canned organized play ffg said the following: " Unfortunately, the numbers simply do not allow us to continue the program, and we are ending it immediately. There will be no further Seasonal Kits nor Store Championships, and we will be in contact with 2018 World Champion Justin Hare and 2017 World Champion Ben Fox to work through the adjustment to their World Championship prizes." Ergo no new cards. The only thing you can hope for is that enough people buy into this at the deep discounted prices that it actually sells and they manage to justify a reprint.
  19. My FLGS used to stock everything, as the H&M packs and lieutenants have whittled down they haven't been replaced and other games have started encroaching. But I was happy to see that they restocked the box expansions last week.
  20. Yeah they gave up on the quest vault. Yeah it was a huge deal to about ten people. Considering the second sentence we really couldn't expect anything other than the first sentence. Star Wars Descent, more commonly called imperial assault is also feeling the neglect and at least descent has avoided the price hikes....
  21. They have been great about giving rules clarifications as recently as last year.
