Hello guys,

So, me and my dad are currently in the process of playing the shadow rune campaign with all of our expansions. We are not including rumor cards. I am the overlord and he is the heroes. We just finished the interlude and our next session we will start act 2.

Now, He won the intro, and the castle darion, but I have won the other quests. But, the thing is, is that HE HAS NOT SEARCHED A SINGLE TOKEN! Ok, maybe one or two, and he has gotten the treasure chest card once. But, he has no items! And I have a bunch of cards that I have purchased. Here are his heroes:

Augur as Disciple
Steelhorns as Champion
Leoric as Necromancer

All he has is a couple leather armors and the jeweled mace. LEORIC STILL HAS HIS STARTING WEAPON!!!

My question is, is there ANY chance that he wins the campaign?? Should we even continue the campaign? We were thinking the next campaign I would play the heroes.

Thanks.

It's true the items are the primary way that heroes become more powerful. But it all comes down to the final quest. If he starts putting more emphasis on trying to search at least twice in every encounter, he could still end up swiping some key items by the final showdown.

Any scenario/encounter can also be lost by a single key blunder. There is always that chance that you could make a significant tactical mistake and leave open a golden opportunity for the heroes. It's a very tactical game and there are a lot of chances for players to make mistakes.

Lastly, I'd recommend compensating if you feel like one side is getting too over-powered. Descent tends to be more fun when both sides feel like they have a shot at winning. If it gets down to the last scenario and you both still feel like he is far behind, spot your dad 300-400 gold or so and let him go shopping before the last scenario.
