      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   [i]Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will [b][i]never[/i][/b] ask for your password.[/i]   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   [i]Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system. [/i]   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at [url="https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/"]https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/[/url].   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Is there a well-balanced encounter with "Knock-out Heroes" as the overlord's only objective?

1 post in this topic

Has anyone created a well-balanced encounter that has the "simple" overlord objective of knocking-out some or all of the heroes (at least once each) before all of the master-monsters or lieutenants/agents are defeated by the heroes (in which case they win instead)?  


By "well-balanced," I mean that the overlord and heroes have a similar chance of winning.  Preferably, an encounter with specific monster groups (i.e. no open groups), and a big map.


More broadly, I'm looking for a simple encounter that focuses primarily on combat.


Or for that matter, do any of the pre-made encounters in the base game or expansions have these objectives, and no other objectives?  I've only played the quests in Act I of the Shadow Rune...which is sad, considering how long I've owned the game and the expansions.  

But take heed!  I swear upon this day to you and to all who will listen, that there shall cometh a day...when I shall retire to a life of boldly diving into the treacherous depths of glorious, endless, Descent.......  but I digress...
