The only thing you can use from 1st ed is the miniatures.

Assuming you also have the Conversion Kit.

Sea of Blood doesn't have any miniatures, so you can't use it in 2nd ed. The conversion kit has hero and monster cards for all the monster and hero miniatures (base game, well of darkness, altair of despair, tomb of ice, promo heroes and and the hero miniatures from ffg's 3rd ed of dungeon quest)

Sea of blood and road to legend, the two campaign expansions offer nothing that can be used in 2nd ed.

Sea of Blood has an awesome boat template though, and I'm sure it would be hard to create 2nd Ed rules for boats if you wanted some custom quests. For $5, you can't go wrong?

You mean Forwards Compatible?

Still, for $5, I would buy it. I love the boat tiles, and I think it's a worthy expansion just for the components to add to 2nd Ed for some custom maps...

Quick! It actually includes Nara the Fang! I bought it just for the sweet boat as Shnar recommended, and got this pleasant surprise:



Nara regularly goes on ebay for $15-20, so getting her for $5 alongside the two modular boats [and other miscellaneous useful counters, especially if you play other RPG's] is a silly steal.

FFG Sale lasts until the 9th. The updated description even mentions she's in it, so it's not like I got a lucky one: http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/productdetails.cfm?SKU=V...

I don't think the description has changed, actually! When I bought it last year it said she was included, and when I checked on the first day of the sale it did as well. You have to click through to the product page, though.

Glad you got her, in any case! Last year I got the other three, then realized I could get her with a Sea of Blood order, and from there I just went nuts and got it all.
