Alive and Well: Fantasy Flight Launches an App and Announces a New Expansion for Descent

Ever since Imperial Assault burst onto the scene like a rampaging Wampa, there have been questions about whether this meant Fantasy Flight will slowly (or quickly) kill Descent. Well rumors of Descent's death have been greatly exaggerated. The Road to Legend app is live now, and FF just announced a brand new expansion: The Chains That Rust. Long live Descent!

Fantasy Flight is Bringing Back 1st Edition Descent. Kinda.

DJ26-box-leftA couple of years back, Fantasy Flight decided to reboot their popular dungeon-crawling, RPGing franchise Descent. People who had the 1st edition could still use their monsters and heroes—they just had to track down a copy of the Conversion Kit that Fantasy Flight put out. Well, now they're making it easier to bring those 1st edition items into your 2.0 game.

DJ26-PlasticAccording to their Web site, Fantasy Flight have decided to release Hero and Monster collections. Well, right now it's just one collection, but if this sells well, expect to see more of them.

The first collection, Oath of the Outcast, will have three monster groups and four heroes that were only available in the 1st edition. The baddies are bane spiders, beastmen, and razorwings; and the heroes are Trenloe the Strong, Laurel of Bloodwood, Elder Mok, and Shiver. They're also including two new quests.

These aren't just repackaging of old pieces, though: The art and sculpts are both brand new. They haven't said how much the expansion will cost, but look for it in the 2nd quarter of 2014. We'll give you more information as it becomes available.

Fantasy Flight Releases the Trollfens Expansion for Descent 2.0

Trollfens By Firestone

Fantasy Flight has released another "small" expansion for its hit dungeon-crawler, RPG, board game Descent—this time you'll be taking a trip to the dangerous Trollfens...

The game comes with two new Heroes—Roganna the Shade, and Augur Grisom— and two new Classes—the Stalker and the Healer.

For monsters, you'll see Plague Worms, Harpies, and Bol'Goreth, a huge troll who will get his own miniature in an upcoming Lieutenant Pack.

There are also five new quests that you can add to your campaign, or play as one-offs. Finally, there are some new terrain tiles that add a swampy terrain that can hold both treasures and dangers.
