Announcing an Expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition
|Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition | Published 07 June 2013|
The vicious Bol’Goreth rampages through the wildlands at the edge of the Valdari Marsh, and those left in his wake babble terrifying tales of destruction. However, dark rumors hint at something more sinister behind the simple-minded brutality: something horrific that threatens to spill out across the realm.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce The Trollfens, an expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition that introduces new heroes, monsters, classes, quests, and more! Over the course of its five included quests (playable as side quests to a larger campaign, or as their own mini-campaign), heroes can discover and investigate secret rooms and rumors while the overlord spreads infection and brings a powerful new lieutenant into play: the massive troll Bol’Goreth.
Two New Heroes Rise to Protect Terrinoth
Ready to face the nightmares of the Valdari Marsh, two new heroes have risen in defense of the realm. Roganna the Shade is a Scout of unparalleled cunning and valor, while the Healer Augur Grisom can provide solace to his allies through his mere presence in the fray.
In addition, two new classes arrive to enhance your character selection process. The Stalker, a class for the Scout archetype, is a master of the hunt who excels at laying traps of all kinds. Balancing this expertise is the Prophet, a Healer class that bolsters the effectiveness of his fellow adventurers. These new heroes and classes, along with a selection of new Shop and Relic cards, will help the forces of good reclaim the Valdari Marsh.
The Overlord’s Evil Infects the Land
Prefer to smash do-gooding heroes? The Trollfens features a host of options for the overlord, including new monsters, new class cards, and a new lieutenant!
Plague Worms are despicable, disease-carrying creatures thought to have died out generations ago. Carriers of every affliction imaginable, these scavenging beasts feed off of the pestilence and filth they create. Their reappearance in the Valdari Marsh is indeed a sign of ill tidings for the realm. But even as the Plague Worms assault the realm from below, another threat is arriving from above. Harpies are bat-like monsters that have been twisted through sorcery into a mockery of the female form. Vicious and unyielding, these semi-intelligent carnivores always hunt in groups, swarming over their prey with deadly precision.
The overlord’s evil has always been a blight on Terrinoth, but The Trollfens presents that sentiment literally. The new overlord class, called “Infector,” features a wide selection of powers centered around spreading pestilence and disease. Cards like Contaminated allow the overlord to mark his unfortunate target with an infection token, a representation of the maladies emanating from the swamplands. Once so afflicted, the unfortunate target of this token can find himself unable to defend himself, too weak to attack, or unable to differentiate friend from foe!
With new heroes, monsters, classes, quests, and much more, The Trollfens is sure to enhance any Descent fan’s gaming experience. A rampaging troll is threatening the safety of the realm. Are you prepared to face his fury? Find out when The Trollfens arrives this fall, and in the meantime, visit its website and check back for previews!
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.
