The treacherous Wyrm Queen Valyndra has awoken from her slumber, unleashing her foul hybrid minions on the countryside to burn and raid as they please. Her lust for gold has lured her from her lair, and now it’s up to a few brave heroes to drive her back into hiding and destroy her cruel servants!
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Lair of the Wyrm, an upcoming expansion that introduces new heroes, classes, monsters, quests, and more to Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition! Heroes can now discover secret rooms and investigate suspicious rumors, while the Overlord equips himself with deadly never-before-seen tricks as he fields a powerful new lieutenant. Visit our Lair of the Wyrm website to learn more!
New Quests, New Heroes, and More
Lair of the Wyrm introduces five new quests that can be played individually or used to supplement a larger campaign (see our description page for more). With inventive objectives like rescuing survivors from a burning inn and protecting valuable ore from a greedy ettin, Lair of the Wyrm’s Quest Guide delivers fresh new challenges to your adventures.
What’s more, Lair of the Wyrm brings two new heroes to the fight against the forces of evil. Reynhart the Worthy is a fearless warrior whose prowess in combat means he rarely makes mistakes. He can reroll misses once per attack, helping to ensure that every strike is righteous and true. Meanwhile, High Mage Quellen is a master of body and mind, and is able to quickly recover from exertions that would devastate lesser men. Quellen has developed the ability to feed off the fatigue of those around him, gaining strength where his fellows fail.
But even as the heroes of Terrinoth gain new allies and tactics, their great enemy silently grows in sinister power. In addition to the Wyrm Queen herself, a fearsome Dragon Lord lieutenant seemingly formed from solidified flame, the Overlord gains two new monsters: mischievous and destructive Fire Imps, and flying Hybrid Sentinels...half-dragon monstrosities with a cruel penchant for preying on the weak. The Overlord’s new advantages are not limited to his minions, however. His new available class, Punisher, specializes in making heroes pay for every inch they advance. With abilities like Trading Pains and Exploit Weakness, the Punisher class will make the hero players flinch with fear every time something seems to go their way.
Dark secrets await within Valyndra’s lair. Do you have the courage to face the dreaded Wyrm Queen? Visit our Lair of the Wyrm website to learn more details, check back as we preview Lair of the Wyrm in the coming weeks, and look for it on store shelves later this year!
Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition is a story-driven board game for 2-5 players that takes a party of adventurers deep into the dungeons of Terrinoth for adventure, treasure, and glory. Players will embark on a campaign of linked quests as they develop characters based on four fantasy archetypes.
