Index of Useful Links

Recommended Posts

Over the past few days, I have had multiple conversations with the D2e player Cejel about placing image icons for each expansion next to their name in the Index of Useful links.

 

This will help facilitate an understanding of what cards, etc. belong to each expansion.

 

With some timely help from FFGEvan, I was able to get these added.  I hope others find this helpful as well.

 

EDIT: For those uncertain what the image icons are for the Conversion Kit, in order, they represent the following:

  1. Heroes/Monsters that came with D1e Base Game
  2. Heroes/Monsters that came with D1e Well of Darkness Expansion
  3. Heroes/Monsters that came with D1e Altar of Despair Expansion
  4. Heroes/Monsters that came with D1e Tomb of Ice Expansion
  5. Heroes that came from DungeonQuest
  6. Heroes that were Promotional Items

FYI ...

 

I just completed updating all of the documents that I own (those that say "by any2cards") under the Community Tools & Game Aids section.  I made extensive modifications to bring all of the documents up to date with the latest expansions.

FYI ... I added a new document under the Community Tools & Game Aids section called "Descent 2nd Edition Proof of Purchase".  It is an excel spreadsheet which itemizes all proof of purchase codes and the expansions to which they belong.

 

In addition, I updated the original post in this thread to show all proper image codes for those expansions that have them.

For those interested learning to paint minis I've found some great sites, videos and tutorials

 

Just had Sorastros Youtube clips recommended to me  - https://www.youtube.com/user/Sorastro

 

He has some great tutorials and guides covering Descent, Imperial Assault and Zombicide. Well worth the watch if you're interested in painting your minis.

Despite having an IQ north of 190 (sick brag, I know  :P), sometimes I am really, truly, stupid.

 

As many of you may know, one of our own on this site, Atom4geVampire, has put in many hours creating and testing a campaign tracker for D2e.

 

In fact, I was the original beta tester of this site, and put in many hours myself banging away on it, doing my very best to break and hack the *&^%$ out of it.

 

Despite all of that, I never added his site to the Index of Useful Links.  Today, ever the gentleman that he is, he sent me a reminder PM, politely informing me of my many short comings, and suggested that his campaign tracker deserves some mention within this post.  This PM had many *cough* remarks ... Atom, I think you should take some Vitamin C and get plenty of rest ...  :P  :D  :lol:

 

I have added his very nice site to the Index of Useful Links, under the Community Tools & Game Aids section.

Alternative wolf proxies:

Let me know if you want me to continue, I got proxies for pretty much all reasonable things of the game (and a lot of unreasonable, too).

What about adding some fanmades campaigns/quest that have been popular in the Quest Vault:

 

Call of the Necromancer (CON) by Brutalien

The Legacy of Timmorran by Zaltyre

Mini-Campaign, Weapons of War by Zaltyre

 

Other Quests I like, but this is my opinion, are:

 

The Ritual of Immortality by BuBu

The Ruined Mine by Draconic Lord

Dungeon of Death by AceCaldwell

Burying of Burden by Kringler

The Dragon's Den by Kysra

 

Some of the quest may need some balance or some spelling checks, but I like them, perhaps some others could too.

I made some additions to the IoUL (Index of Useful Links) as follows:

  1. I added in additional proxies mentioned in post #35 by SpawnGarret
  2. I created a new section called Community Campaigns & Quests and added those items mentioned in post #37 by Volkren

If there are additional custom made campaigns and/or quests that members really like, let me know.

 

As for the bases and item proxies provide in post #38 by SpawnGarret, I really didn't know what to do with those, as the links send you to pages that sometimes have hundreds of items in them, many of which really aren't applicable to this game.  For now, I have not added them.

I added a new section called "Apps", and provided a link to Road to Legend.

 

Under the Questions & Answers section, I broke up question #1 (ideal number of heroes to play with) into 2 parts - the first part answering for general Campaign/Mini-Campaign/Individual Quest play, and the second part for Co-Op play, as the answers are different.

Hah.. I know it's a bit over the top - 

 

Proxies for Doors (including Portcullis)

http://www.manticgames.com/mantic-shop/new/dungeon-saga/product/dungeon-doors-pack.html

 

Proxies for Searchable items (Treasure Chests/Barrels) and other furniture

http://www.manticgames.com/mantic-shop/new/dungeon-saga/product/dungeon-furniture-pack.html 

 

Lol.  Over the top?  Perhaps ...

 

I am not sure why someone would need proxies for something that actually already comes with the game, but I could see using these if you also were using a 3D dungeon.  That is something a friend of mine has made for all of D1e and D2e.

All you can do is be patient.  These will be re-printed.  Once they are, make sure you get them ASAP, as they are in high demand.

Awesome sticky.  Thanks for adding the RtL app links.  Came here looking for the rules to the app but didn't see them.  Don't know why I am having so much trouble, but Google shows me original descent rules only.

Thanks!

Thank you.  I actually added direct links for Mists of Bilehall and Road To Legend under the rules section.  Thank you for indirectly pointing out that I somehow had missed this.  I appreciate it !!!

The index includes links to the rules for each expansion, sans the quests. Each of these includes the descriptions for monsters, heroes, and lieutenants.

The rulebook for the core set doesn't include the descriptions for the core monsters, heroes, and lieutenants, though. Does anyone know where I could get my hands on a .pdf version of that?

I want to make a booklet for my players with the descriptions for all available monsters, heroes, and lieutenants, but right now, the best I can do is do that for the expansions.
