    Bucho got a reaction from twincast in I guess some box expansions got canned   
    There's a new expansion not even out yet, excellent reason to panic that the games over. I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the perpetual panic thread for all of your perpetual panic needs.

    That's very common in board games because every expansion that you require locks exponentially more people out of the game.
    Honestly having played the delve that was kind of a train wreck. There's a lot of game here, having to hunt through all of it doesn't make for short setup times.
    Honestly this is a common rule adhered to by game designers far and wide.
    To reiterate there's really nothing wrong with the way most game designers operate. I think it's just an abnormally large and obvious problem for Descent because they made some mistakes regarding too few health and stamina tokens, a lack of obviously common basic tile shapes and some weird monster choices in the core that have haunted them ever sense.

    Honestly how much more plastic and cardboard are you looking for? We already have a ton of heroes and a huge amount of monsters and tiles not just a few of which feel very VERY similar. I like that they're breaking out of the mold where every release has to check off the same boxes to give their descent fan base something that they've been asking for and hope to see more of the same going forward.

    I managed to get Runewars for $30 which while I never expect to actually play it, at that price it was worth it for the plastic... Anyway the Ardus out of it is pretty cool but I was disappointed for my playthrough of MoB/CtR not to be able to get a hold of Zarihell.

    That's a little better than I was thinking, I just looked on amazon which has now dropped to $10.99
    That's part of my point. The fantasy rpg genre is really saturated, ffg has a lot of work to do to catch up and instead of doing that.....they're doing this *face palm*

    You can get Ardus Ix'erebus out of Runewars but you should probably just wait for a reprint...  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ardus-Ixerebus-kit-from-Runewars-Miniature-Game-NEW-Fantasy-Flight-Undead/232686959529?hash=item362d393ba9:g:j7QAAOSwjL5ZD2ZP

    And that's a big part of my point. The quest vault is largely full of quests that haven't received enough attention to get the bugs worked out and I don't think writing for the app will make that process shorter or simpler....

    I'm real skeptical of that. The current quest vault never seemed to do very well and that's before we're talking about writing for an app... Furthermore the shadow rune project doesn't seem to be going anywhere particularly fast.

    Bucho got a reaction from topper30 in My desire for 3rd Edition   
    Personally I don't like road to legend as much standard 2e. Alot of the draw for 2e is in the tactics. Having the AI "deck" blunder around aimlessly just isn't as good an experience. Now they could make up for that with story, that's a perfectly fine way for an RPG-ish game to go. But a deep story has never been descents strong suit and turning it into a story experience (like mansions of madness) limits the replayability.

    1st edition had many flaws, but were all easily fixable and to this day is one of the most amazing dungeon crawlers of all times. It might not have the elegance of Imperial Assault, it might not grant you the wonderful campaign progression of other games, but nonetheless, it was just incredible. To this day I have people asking to play 1st edition, both in Campaign Mode and as standalone. So much depth in such a wonderful game. Grab it, if you can.

    Well you don't HAVE to throw it out the window. I still get 1e on the table and for traditional players of the game there's significantly more 2e. That said I think canning 2e right now would be a poor decision. They just released road to legend in 2016 and a significant number of people bought into the game for that. There are road to legend only players  who just recently bought the whole thing trusting ffg's statements that they would be releasing content for RtL.
    If you're one of those people and the canned date ends up being 2017, do you trust ffg again?

    Is it? I'm not familiar with the warhammer card game but after having bought into larger names in this niche such as Pathfinder ACG, Dragonfire, LotRLCG I wonder what about this is different and interesting enough to buy into yet another big coop card game, especially given how unhappy I've been with how FFG's been about supporting my other recent purchases?

    An update about our current progress:
    We just released a demo campaign, which can be downloaded from within Valkyrie.
    Please note: This is a demo release, it's not a final product. There will be some bugs, but the campaign should be playable. However it has not been balanced yet and some mechanics will change in future releases.

    The following Quests are currently integrated and playable:

    First Blood
    A Fat Goblin
    Castle Daerion
    The Cardinal's Plight
    Death on the Wing
    The Masquerade Ball
    The Shadow Vault

    I hope everyone enjoys playing this and some feedback would be very welcome.

    If you encounter any Bugs please use the following site to report them: https://github.com/DelphiDie/TheShadowRune/issues
    Regards
    Delphi

    Yes, they have been questioned at an event since frostgate. They promised new stuff. I guess this is how we have to get news about descent from now on....
