    That's never going to happen, if FFG releases a base set for a new version it needs to be really generic so that players who only own said base set can use it with any future expansion. FFG would be seriously shooting themselves in the foot to put out the 3rd edition base in some peculiar setting as they'd be stuck trying to work let's say frozen tiles from the base into every future map on the whole 3rd edition product line.

    Did you ever play the original? It was widely considered a trainwreck...

    Oh I'm sure that initial hype had them flying off the shelves. Road to Legend was awesome and this has cool looking boat cardboard and a Kraken! But once the game became a known commodity...   So much so that I can still buy new half priced boxes of sea of blood. Whereas every other expansion sells used for more than it's original cost.

    Yeah, you don't need to be trying to manipulate wordings with the treasure hunter, it's broken enough right out of the box.

    Plague worms seem cool, don't really like the look of the harpies and oh my Dog does the prophet class burn through stamina. I can't comment on the quests as I haven't played them yet.

    Yeah it was so well received that you can still buy new copies for $25. While I've only ever seen used copies of the other expansions, typically at a higher price than when they were new.

    To be fair I was responding to someone scrambling to buy everything while he could still get a hold of it. Yeah reprints doesn't mean that we'll get new expansions. But it does mean that nobody needs to be running out and paying $150 for the core box on amazon either.
    However,  I do think the amount of digital content is a pretty clear indication that we will be seeing more of Descent.
    If FFG was just looking to sell a digital campaign or two there's no real incentive for them to put out the amount of RtL content that they have for free. All the work they've done putting together free quests for the expansions and H&M packs and giving away free campaigns really only makes sense if they're laying the groundwork to use this platform for a while.
    RtL only came out last year and there are already 2 big box campaigns and one small box campaign as well as Delve and all the side quests. That's a huge amount of content for a board game company to put out in a short period of time and it's completely unsurprising that they're giving us time to digest it before trying to sell us more.

    The downside of putting 8 villager and 8 guards in the companions/familiars/whatever box is that you're already at 16 pieces of plastic so if we're talking a H&M size expansion you're typically about full.

    You're right there are some really cool opportunities here. Perfect place to release a druid class for instance...

    I'd wonder if making a product that's meant to support seven different sources makes marketing have a stroke.

    I was actually thinking of a translucent purple token but was skeptical that would provide enough utility to be worth it. Your ideas cooler, I was trying to come up with something like that but couldn't figure out how to get around the problem of the large size mini's.
    Also, it wouldn't need to be generic, you could certainly monster it up.

    I've tried to buy generic villagers, they certainly come up often enough in games. The only villagers I've found are ridiculously over themed, for instance I don't have a lot of use for a blacksmith and his anvil.
    So if anybody knows of a well made generic mini out there or can design one for 3d printing I'd like to buy a few.

    I'm kind of curious why they don't make this product when the lieutenant packs certainly seem to work. I've already proxied some of this stuff, for instance it's not too hard to come up with a skeleton or a wolf. There's a flock of Ravens mini out there and some 3d printed options for the summoned stones. But there isn't a great mini for Brightblaze and nothing at all for the scourge.
    I don't think they'd be able to replace all of the tokens, for instance how do you make a mini of the shadow soul? I mean it's whole thing is basically other mini's standing on top of it...
    But there are a number of token that could be replaced and quite a few of us who want that.

    There was a recent Kickstarter about angry villagers storming a monsters lair, like a tower defence game in reverse. When that ships next year I expect eBay to be full of plastic villager miniatures.

    Bucho got a reaction from Ashgur in Expansions: what i would like FFG to make   
    Scenarios, many more scenarios. I don't find these scenarios  at all replayable which means I want a bunch more than 4 to justify a $100 game. Same for the expansions, I need content to justify getting them. That said the one dnc that's out I haven't bothered buying because even the "short" easy scenario was long and hard for us. I'm looking for more scenarios about like it.
