RUNEBOUND, DESCENT AND RUNEWARS

Recommended Posts

As these three game series involve the same world and some of the same heroes, it would be nice to see some narrative or other material linking the three together in some coherent history or story. 

Heck, for that matter, if one were really into this world  in a deep way, it would be interesting for FFG to publish some kind of campaign in which gameplay and results in Descent or Runebound affect the larger campaign in Runewars.  Bring Latari Elf characters as Heroes or otherwise into a Runebound game or a Descent campaign; have an Overlord come from the Undead or the demonic Uthuk Y’llan. For that matter, A Descent campaign or dungeon could be built around attacking Waiqar the Undying in his lair or castle.  That could be a Runebound adventure as well.  Treasures and weapons, even allies, that Heroes find in Descent or Runebound could be incorporated into Runewars.  The quests in Runewars could be elaborated into Descent or Runebound adventures.  For those so interested, this could stretch a single Runewars game into months of fantasy adventuring goodness!

NOTE:  I've posted this same comment in the Runewars and Runebound forums to get a wider spectrum of thought and opinion.  And I'm never sure if FFG staffers even read the forums or if they do, which ones they read, but if this is posted in three different places, perhaps it will catch their eyes. I'm all for synergy between related games in the interest of broadening the story--and the overall game play in a particular universe.

I thought something like this would be cool as well; however, I think the scope of this would be too much. You'd be looking at days and days of gaming as opposed to hours and hours. One might be able to get away with combining two of the three together (Runebound/Descent or Runewars/Descent), but I'm not sure how you would pull off all three. Plus, keeping track of which where you were in each game would become a daunting task. You'd basically have triggers in one game that would send you to another (i.e. drawing an adventure card in Runeboud would trigger a dungeon in Descent).
