The Bol'Goreth Descent Lieutenant Pack Is Now Available
|Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition | Published 13 December 2013|
From the stagnant pools of the Valdari Swamp, the putrid stench of plague seeps forth to infect the land of Terrinoth. On the heels of this disease, a new lieutenant of the overlord emerges from the swamp – the vicious troll, Bol’Goreth. No one can guess what power has removed the slow-witted Bol’Goreth from his usual haunts, but no corner of Terrinoth is now safe from his marauding attacks.
The Bol’Goreth Lieutenant Pack for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition is now available at local retailers everywhere and online at our webstore!
The Bol’Goreth Lieutenant Pack offers the overlord a fearsome fighter in the deadly troll from The Trollfens and replaces the lieutenant token with a detailed plastic figure, depicting Bol’Goreth ready for battle. Bol’Goreth is a brutish melee fighter, with high health and strong attacks, and he can use his Reach ability to attack heroes two spaces away. When he causes damage in combat, Bol’Goreth can spend a surge to inflict both the Diseased and the Poisoned conditions on a hero, ensuring that he inflicts damage lasting beyond conflict.
Bol’Goreth is a fearsome foe in direct combat, but he is also the agent of a greater power. As with other Descent Lieutenant Packs, you will gather threat tokens during quests that you can spend to trigger the powerful effects on Plot cards. By using Bol’Goreth’s Raging Infection Plot deck, you can cripple the heroes after spreading poison and disease with Bol’Goreth and your other monsters.
With a card like Affliction Aura, you can quickly spread disease by giving the Diseased condition to all heroes who starts their turns too close to a chosen monster. Even if a hero would resist the effects of disease or poison, you can force the hero to falter by triggering Fetid Stench. Disease and poison won’t destroy a hero in a turn, but the constant wear on a hero’s health and stamina will soon leave them too weak to pose much of a threat, especially when you have a heavy-hitter like Bol’Goreth among your monsters.
Once a hero is weakened by disease or poison, you can keep him down with Weakened Spirit. Sometimes, though, despite your most insidious efforts, the heroes will continue to hobble forwards. When you just need one extra push to destroy the heroes, Virulent Cloud effectively triggers Poisoned and Diseased conditions a second time in a round, opening the way for you to attain your ultimate goals.
A Blight Upon the Land
The venomous schemes of the overlord are yours for the taking with the help of Bol’Goreth and his Plot deck. Spread disease and infection with Bol’Goreth’s Plot deck, and break the weakened heroes with the strength of the troll himself. Pick up your copy of the Bol’Goreth Lieutenant Pack today, and doom the heroes with poison and plague!
