Well as a Descent-a-holic I have bought everything appart from 1POD and 4 Lieutenants..in a space of about 5 weeks... Opps :D

 

Still I dont follow that many other FFG lines, only (including discontinued): LotR LCG, Star Wars LCG, Arkham Horror LCG, Imperial Assault, MoM (1st and 2nd), Elder Sign, Arkham Horror Boardgame, Warhammer 40K Conquest LCG, Warhammer Invasion LCG, Call of Cthulhu LCG, Warhammer Quest ACG, Space Hulk Death Angel, Blood Bowl Team Manager, Chaos in the Old World...

This is amazing!  My partner and I just bought Nerekhall and were hoping they would release some playable content for RTL, and now our wishes have come true.  Even better is that it's free!  

I agree with what some others have said however, and would still be willing to pay for a campaign, if it had more quests,  or allowed more content to be released.  I'm not complaining though, this is such a nice holiday gift to receive from the good folks at FFG.  Keep up the good work!

For most Descent addicts SoN is the best expansion released until now (including the MistLands Arc) so for those who will have the opportunity to play it in standard mode, you can go for it without any anxiety. It is worth buying.
In many quest the Overlord has to decide for actions known only to him, which confers a good tension for the heroes during the game.

Hi, Im Andi and im also a Descent-a-holic

i used to force people around me to play twillight imperium with me...or Runewars. I prefer Runewars due to the fantasy setting, so i usually wanted them to learn Runewars..and its easier anyway.....but...they either gave up while i tied to teach em the rules, or they gave up after around 5 hours of gaming saying we could simply play the second half next week or so. After 3 days they usually texted me, that they do not want to finish the game. 

Once i played a game against myself....Uthuk won against Latari ! it was an amazing game full of tactical decisions and crule battles !!...but i knew the strategies of my enemy...so it felt not like a real victory ....but the loss as Latari player felt real :/

3 years no finished Runewars-Game freed me finally of this addiction and i forced less and less people around me to play it again. I almost forgot it. I thought i could acquire inner peace again...and harmony...untill it happaned.

It was the 18th of July 2016...my Birthday. My sister and her husband gave me Descent 2e as a present....they gave it to me while saying : "its maybe a game similar to runewars, and maybe its easier so we might play it too! Its meant to be very cool according to the shop owner."

I started to think about runewars again...how the Uthuk won. I placed Descent 2e somewhere in the corner of my room and grabbed my Runewars game. 3 Weeks after my Birthday i stumbled over the Descent box, cursing it to make me think of runewars again. But well...i was heading to my girlfrind by bus soon...and to kill the boring driving time i got the rulebook/questbooks with me. I like to read Fantasy game rulebooks^^. In this one hour it started to convince me more and more. The more i read, the more i wanted to play it. And the more i wanted to play it, the more i forgot about runewars! And then...my friends really said they would play it...and the more i played it, the more i wanted to own a every single piece of content...arrwghgrhg screw it ... got so many additions since then and due to the fact that i think often about strategies i overwhelmed my different hero groups as an Overlord...to have more insight about the complex mechanics and details of the game gives you a big advantage. My groups all gave up, saying that the game is impossible for the heroes...i did not have any Plot decks at that games. I tried to convince them to play the OL once...but they said no -.-....tried to convince them, that they should sometimes more likely head for search cards. that Tarhar as Necro is not optimal. that they should not waste feats for garbage monsters if they are in no hurry. That they should read zaltyres explanations about the different types of movement and many other important details. Well well....and now fml...im more addicted to this game than i was to runewars^^ and again most of my friends do not want to play it again xD

its cursed !!!

But luckily my sisters husband has a friend, who does also own descent 2e and is heavily addicted to this game ! and there we are almost finished with a campaign : ) ...but we still have a tarhar as necro :'D only possibility my other friend said yes to another campaign^^...but still...we are meeting every 2-3 weeks....feels like an eternity -.-

Sorry, but not a curse. Your players don't seem to understand the game as well as you do. I would start by telling players it's an objective based game, not a dungeon crawler or skirmisher. I call it "medieval swat", as swat teams are considered very efficient and objective based. Next, I wouldn't tell them how to play their characters, because your limiting their options, even if there bad ones. Tell them how you won or what you exploited. I kept a whole play group my first campaign and have never had problems with keeping players.

 

Edit: typo
