The kingdom of Saradyn lies in peril. After centuries without a ruler, an heir to the kingdom has arisen, but he is not the only one to lay claim to the throne. Lady Eliza Farrow, an immortal vampire and the wife of a renowned necromancer, has claimed Saradyn as her own. She is more than willing to slay anyone who may stand between her and the hidden kingdom. Only you and your fellow heroes can protect the true heir from a horrid death at Eliza’s hands.
Heirs of Blood is the first campaign book for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition . It offers a new campaign for the Core Set of Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition , inviting you to embark on a thrilling adventure to battle ancient evil and foil the schemes of the Farrow family in thirty-two completely new encounters. In this campaign, every decision matters and every victory or defeat has dramatic consequences for the future of Saradyn.
Protect the Heir
As the campaign begins, Eliza Farrow is already working to besiege the hidden valley kingdom of Saradyn. Long has the valley been protected by the monks who dwell within, but the dark forces now arrayed against them are greater than they can hope to defeat. In desperation to protect their realm and the heir of the throne who dwells within, they have turned to your party of heroes for aid. Eliza hopes to slay the true heir, leaving the kingdom to fall under her dark reign. For the safety of Saradyn and all Terrinoth, you cannot permit that egregious outcome.
Heirs of Blood offers a climactic campaign in two acts, featuring thirty-two completely new encounters. Your adventures will take you across the realm of Saradyn, but one thing remains consistent: the outcome of every quest has consequences for the entire campaign.
In the first act, you and your fellow heroes must foil Eliza’s initial incursions into the hidden kingdom. You may battle goblins to retrieve treasure from a hidden cavern, or attempt to keep Eliza Farrow from completing an unclean ritual. When the second act begins, Saradyn is launched into open war against the dark forces and machinations of the Farrows. You may battle a rival army amid a graveyard filled with undead or seek to infiltrate the haunted dungeon of Khinn! The Heirs of Blood campaign concludes with an unprecedented, three-encounter finale that brings Saradyn’s two claimants together in a magical showdown that will determine the fate of the kingdom. Your heroes are all that stand between the rightful heir and a grisly demise.
