Unofficial Campaign Tracker for Descent!

Recommended Posts

Atom, the card "Merchants' Guild" from Rylan's Plot Deck doesn't appear in your site. I think it is beacuse it triggers in the shop step. I had to manage the gold of the heroes and search items in order to have the actual gold of the party. Also, I had to manage the thread supply by my own due to the cost of the card, that also doesn't appear in the site.

 

This because if the Overlord uses the card and discard a token, and then selects and shop item, it costs 50g more, but if the heroes decide to buy it, it doesn't reflect in the site.

 

I hope I'm not causing troubles, anyway, still thanks for all the work you are doing :D

 

[Edit]: Ah, I forgot. The MoB campaign Finale also has three encounters. Heroes won Shattered Schemes, so the encounter 2b should be played and in the site appears 2a. Hope I'm not mistaken.

I'm aware of the Merchants Guild issue, I have it written down here on a note on my desk since k7e9 posted about the other Rylan card, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I haven't been able to work on the site this past week or so.

 

 

The finale has 2 encounters, one of which is decided (out of 2 choices) by Shattered Schemes yes. Because of some issues (different monsters and stuff) this had to be done differently from for example the Heirs of Blood finale, so this quest iis actually 2 separate quests, marked with (2a) and (2b)

 

The quest text says: "if the heroes won the 'Julidens Keep' quest or 'Shattered Schemes' quest, proceed to encounter 2a."

So.. that seems correct in your case right?

Hey Atom4geVampire,

 

Just wanted to report on a couple of bugs I've encountered playing through an Heirs of Blood campaign using the tracker.

 

For reference, this is the campaign we're currently playing:

http://www.d2etracker.com/campaign_overview.php?urlGamingID=47237058

 

1) In the travel step, if the "Ferryman" water event is chosen, and the heroes have no money remaining, I was unable to continue to the next travel step in the UI.  I was thus forced to use the "No Event" choice in order to complete travel.

 

2) The Archaic Scroll was purchased by Serena after the Interlude and then used in the quest that followed. She returned "Cloud of Mist" and picked up "Ancestor's Spirits". This worked alright, however, she was also awarded 4 bonus XP for some reason. She is now finishing the campaign with 4 XP more than she should actually have.

 

3) When completing the Secret Passage room, "Cursed Tomb", there is no way to indicate how many of the tests the hero has passed. The Cursed Tomb should be awarding between 25-100gp based on the test results. At the moment, this secret passage is not awarding any gold, and I had to make up for the gold difference by claiming the heroes found more potions than they actually did.

 

4) When the Overlord had 3 XP available, and already had one Unholy Ritual card purchased, he attempted to purchase another Unholy Ritual, and the "Rise Again" Magus cards. This is legal, however, the Skill page did not show the "Rise Again" card as one of the options. My guess is the form did not believe the pre-requisites were met, even though they could be.

I was able to work around this by purchasing the 2nd Unholy Ritual, saving the skill page and then re-opening it for editing again. The second time it was opened, the "Rise Again" card was now available.

Thanks Charmy, 

 

I was aware of most of these issues, but didn't have the opportunity yet to fix them.

1) I have encountered this one myself

 

2) Yes, this has been reported before. It used to work, but then I added the reward of one of the advanced quests that does about the same thing, but due to an error in my code it also goes through this piece of code when you use the scroll, thus returning the skills twice. I still need to figure out how I'm going to fix this, at least it has to be prevented that it also triggers the other when using one of both,

but both of them could be used at the same time as well and people could try and return the same skill twice, so I need to prevent that too. I'll adjust the XP count in your campaign.

 

3) Must have missed that one, I will add it.

 

4) Yes, I am aware of this, and it annoys me as well. When the skills page loads, it takes into account your current skills and shows the available cards for that. So if you only have one 1xp card of a category, its not going to show any 2xp or 3xp cards for that category. This is to avoid the overlord having to start searching through a giant list of all possible skills to find the one he wants to purchase. However in cases where the overlord saves up xp and tries to buy cards from several tiers at once, you'll run into this issue. The way you did it is indeed the way to 'fix' the issue for now, as when the page loads again, it will see that you've bought enough cards from a previous tier to load the next one.

Ideally the page would update on the fly as soon as you select Unholy Ritual and load the next ones, but my programming skills are a bit limited. I'll see if it is possible to load next tiers from categories you've already purchased cards from.

Hi Atom,

 

Been playing through some campaigns, great work thus far.

 

I've come against an issue, I played "Famine and Strife" during a travel phase now it isn't letting me play a rumour quest card. I thought it should be played afterwards if there wasn't any button for it. After completing that stage, however I can't find a play rumour card button to allow me to play it to access the rumour quest on the quest selection. Am I missing something?

-So *ahm* heard some înteresting question that was raised in a wrong thread^^-

Arguably more than 1 corrupted citizen can be defeated in a quest - perhaps that is easy to implement?

Just a heads-up guys, apparently there was a problem with the Mace of Kellos item where, if you sold it, it would sell for 125 instead of 75.

This has been corrected. If this issue has affected your campaign in the past, let me know if I need to adjust it (deduct 50 gold from your groups gold), because I don't want to do it automatically, since people might have worked around it with search cards in the next quest for example.

 

Also, some people have reported an issue regarding gold as well, when they delete a quest as well, I'm looking in to that at the moment, so when you do delete a quest, keep an eye on the gold.

Just a small heads-up: in the future, you'll need to select your country from a list instead of filling it in yourself.

This is partly for translation purposes, as well as future functionality.

 

Therefore I have updated the country names stored for every group (of which I was certain I was updating it to the correct name).

So if you notice a change for your group, don't worry, it was me :)

 

Also, an update on the translations:

I have found somebody for French, German, Russian and Spanish. Some of those translations are almost done.

Anyone who owns an official translation of Descent and has the time to do some translations, let me know.

If you ever need additional help with Spanish let me know, native speaker. Also being Puerto Rican the type of spanish I grew up with is more "generic" I guess.

 

Think American English vs British

Hi Atom and community,

 

a few month ago I mentioned a feature that I would really like to see in this campaign tracker. I would love to have an overlord aid, that would support you on selecting the open monster groups for a quest by providing a quick overview of the available monsters stats.

 

A few days ago I stumbled over the page airtable.com. There you could build your own custom databases in a few minutes. So I created "Monster database". I could share this database with you and provide some predefined and prefiltered views on the data.

 

So here is what I did:

  • Monster database containing all monster groups up to Visions of Dawn (that's the last H&M Collection I currently own)
  • Filtered views on Act I & II Monstes (accessible over the drop down at the top left corner)
  • You are able to add your own filters in that views (e.g. on the Expansions you are playing with, or the monsters traits you are selecting from). This will not affect the public view of the database.

Here is the link to the database: https://airtable.com/shr04KZApnSUQ5UGf

 

@Atom: The page provides me HTML-Code to embed the database view in another page. So let me know if you are interested in using the table on your page directly. Then I could send to the code to embed it.

 

@Everyone else: If you are willing to help me keeping the data up to date (for the missing expansions or future releases), you could create an account on airtable.com and I am able to add you as an collaborater on the database.

 

I hope you think this is a useful feature.

 

Regards,

SlimShady

 

P.S.: Aww ... I forgot ... I could also provide access to a german version of the database and I am able to copy the whole database, if someone is willing to localize it to other languages. ;)

I still plan on implementing this. I'm not directly going to use the HTML code, but it makes it looking everything up a lot easier :)

 

There is going to be a big update of the site soon (coming with the translations) and I'll see if I can get this into this update. Thanks!

Ok ... then here is the code to embed the view. Perhaps you could give it a try. If it not fits in your work, its fine ... we could still access it directly.

Going on a trip to Norway for 6 days people, if I don't reply to any issues here or in PM, then you know why :)

I'll get back to you when I'm back

 

Have a nice trip and I hope you face "No events" in your travel, I will not like to hear you encountered some deseases or difficulties in your quest :D
