    Bucho got a reaction from thinkbomb in Clearanced!?!   
    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.

    My local game store is getting rid of it's Imperial Assault inventory. That's been a bad sign for previous games....

    Hello Everyone,
    today I'm glad to announce, that the quests of "The Shadow Rune Project" are finally completed and implemented. As of today you are able to play a complete campaign Just grab the newest Valkyrie release (2.4.0.1 or later) and download the campaign inside the application to play it.
    At this point I really want to thank all contributors to the project, but especially Tantum, who was the driving force behind keeping the project alive in the last year. He alone designed about half of the quests in the campaign, and the project would be far from done without him.
    While the campaign is completely playable, there is still some work to do. Due to the number of quests and their complexitiy, it is pretty likely that there are some minor and major bugs, which could cause all sorts of problem. Due to this, I would be very grateful if you could post any issues you encounter at The Shadow Rune Github repository over here.
    We are also planning to update some of the quests, add new features as soon as the are available in Valkyrie, and overall improve the balancing of the campaign. We are also open for suggestions.
    Looking back to out first release, which was almost 2 and a half years ago, I'm really glad the project was finally completed. There were a lot of challgenes to face during development, but we made it
    Thanks to everyone who still has passion for this game and wants to give the campaign a try.
    For the record, here is our latest changelog:
    - Added the missing quests "The Desecrated Tomb", "Blood of Heroes", "The Twin Idols", "The Wyrm Turns", "The Wyrm Rises", "Gryvorn Unleashed" and "The Man who would be King" by Tantum
    - Completed implementation of the campaign phase (all quests are now playable!).
    Important Note: Please use Valkyrie 2.4.0.1 to run the campaign. Older versions will run into an issue which leads to savegame corruption.

    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....

    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.

    The gist is that, for at least the next year, there is nothing physical planned for Imperial Assault.  There are a couple things scheduled for the app, though.  But no new figs, boxes, etc.

    Bucho reacted to Alicitorte in I designed the Elementalist and the Soul Reaper classes for Lost Legends AMA!   
    Hello everyone!
    A bit of background: I'm Nick, I'm 19 years old and a first year student at UC Santa Cruz. During the summer of 2018, I had the tremendous opportunity to intern at FFG, which had been a dream of mine for many years. In many ways, I grew up on FFG games, and I owe my passion for tabletop gaming to them. First with Rune Age, then with Descent 2nd Edition. I can say with confidence I have played that board game more than any other over the course of my life, and so after about 2 weeks at the internship I was entrusted with working on the Lost Legends expansion. It was and still is to this day the coolest thing I've done. My main coworker on this project was Jim, whom you can see in the live playthrough that was released on youtube. Working together, I couldn't have asked for a better colleague, he was the most understanding, supportive, and genuinely good person I've met. But being given that much trust also came with responsibilities. I was so scared, I wanted to make the best thing I could for the community, and for a game I deeply loved. It seemed monumental, even though as you all know, this expansion is "only" a set of classes.
    I worked the hardest I had ever worked on this project, and I can say I gave it my all, first with the Soul Reaper, who came together rather quickly, and then second with the Elementalist, which took us much longer to figure out. Now, to be clear, I did the initial design for those classes, and then worked on revisions, up to a point. After I left (about 2 months in), Jim kept working on the project and with the aid of playtesters, incorporated their feedback into the final versions. I also did initial designs for I believe 5 of the hybrid classes (which I'm not sure have all been revealed yet). It's been so exciting to see this project come to life, and now that it's close to release, I figured it was a good time to post about it. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to comment and I'll do my best to answer everything. Obviously there is a lot of information I cannot disclose, but I'll try to answer in the measure that I can.
    I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this expansion, and see what the community thinks of our hard work!

    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....

    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.

    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.

    Bucho got a reaction from Watercolour Dragon in The 3rd Edition probably will not happen   
    As I understand it both books contain core rules about how things work ergo people have to buy two $50 books ($100) in order to play in terrinoth or both $20 pdf's ($40). Pathfinder on the other hand has one $50 core rule book which also comes in paperback for $25 or a pdf for $9.99. D&D has a players handbook everybody needs $50 and one person would have to get the dungeon masters guide $50. It's also worth mentioning that the core rules for both pathfinder and D&D are open game license so potential players actually have access to all the core rules for free as long as they are willing to use the internet. The cost to get into D&D/pathfinder is actually as low as a set of dice....
    Yeah.....yeah...
    Absolutely, once you get seriously into the other games there are a ton of things you can get AND that doesn't register as a bad thing. It registers as a supporting your game thing (you know the thing ffg is typically bad at doing). With ffg's game all you can get 2 adversary decks of 20 cards with information that you already have.....right?

    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.
