The cult of the Forgotten has grown to uncontrollable levels and now bursts forth upon the realm of Terrinoth! The Crusade of the Forgotten Hero and Monster Collection is now available for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition , both online through our webstore and at your local retailer.

Within this Hero and Monster Collection , you’ll find the monster groups that support the cult of the Forgotten and the heroes you need to quell the rising threat. You’ll uncover thirteen sculpted plastic figures, previously only available in the first edition of Descent , including four heroes, two golems, three medusae, and four sorcerers. You’ll also find two brand-new quests – Crusade of the Forgotten and Shadowside Watch – that allow you to experience the heroes’ battles against the Forgotten firsthand.

Contains four heroes, two golems, three medusae, and four sorcerers.

Stop the Forgotten

In past previews of Crusade of the Forgotten , we’ve explored the monsters employed by the sorcerers of the Forgotten and the heroes who dare to stand against this evil. Our first preview introduced Andira Runehand, a gifted Healer with a passion for vanquishing the monsters of Terrinoth. We also looked at the medusae, serpent demons skilled in dark magic and capable of inflicting any number of conditions upon the helpless heroes they beguile.

The second preview turned to Astarra, a sorceress and an expert in teleportation and magical movement. With her in your hero party, you can be sure that your heroes will get to wherever they need to be. We also examined the mountainous strength of the golems, ancient creatures drawn from living stone. These beasts are nearly unshakable, and only the most powerful of blades can pierce their rocky hide.

Protector of the Innocent

You’ll also find Tahlia, a capable Warrior, in Crusade of the Forgotten . There was a time when the slums of Irram became infected with a multitude of strange and wicked cults. The poor were enslaved, the temples closed their doors, and the city rotted from within. Leading a small band of vigilantes, Tahlia stormed basements and back rooms night after night, rooting out the cultists. She passed over the wicked like a shadow, and disappeared into the night before their bodies could hit the ground. She was unable to save her city from its descent into evil, so now she fights the Forgotten to save Terrinoth from a similar fate.

As a Warrior, Tahlia is most at home in the midst of a fight, and nothing fans her zeal for battle more than defeating the overlord’s monsters. In fact, Tahlia’s hero ability allows her to gain two movement points whenever she defeats a monster, giving her a wide range of motion across the battlefield and bringing her blades closer to other monsters.

Tahlia’s heroic feat gives her another chance to slake her thirst for vengeance. Whenever the overlord activates a monster adjacent to Tahlia or moves a monster adjacent to her, you may trigger her heroic feat to immediately attack the monster. After the attack finishes, the monster continues its turn, but if you can slay the monster, you’ll have stopped it from accomplishing whatever dark aim the overlord had in mind. What’s more, killing a monster still grants you two movement points, which you can immediately use to move towards your quest’s objective.

Free the Helpless

The expanse of Terrinoth lies before you. Will you lead the Forgotten across it with fire and sword, or will you make your stand and defend the people of the realm? Whichever you decide, you’ll find the heroes, monsters, and quests you need in the Crusade of the Forgotten Hero and Monster Collection !
