Am I just being flippant?

I don't know but personally I am quite fed up with swamps, bogs, forests, woods, deserts and then some more swamps.

Please, FFG, make a Winter-themed Descent expansion.

Remember Tomb of Ice (Descent, 1st Edition)? Yes, I want something like that (but better!) for the 2nd Edition.

I am missing a Winter-themed Descent 2.0 expansion very badly.

Thank you.

There's that one tile used in The Frozen Spire. Also, the spire is frozen, so that's wintry.

I would agree that tile could use some company. It would be cool to have "ice" terrain- similar to the "frozen wastes" expansion for runebound.

You could always use the tiles from the SW:IA Hoth expansion that is coming out ... someday.

I am confused! So that means FFG will now release a Wintry themed expansion of blizzards in the mountains, snowy peaks, frostbitten dungeons, grim cold bottomless underworld lakes? Now that the people have spoken? That's it? Well, that was easy.

Seriously now, there are not enough Winter themed BG dungeons out there. I remember there was a Heroquest expansion (Barbarian Quest Pack), The Tomb of Ice (Descent 1st) and The Frozen Wastes expansion of Runebound. But that's about it.

A pity there are not more. The Winter theme works soooo good with the dungeon crawling.

They might still offer up another Big Box expansion (or a Small Box with A LOT of map tiles) with a winter setting. I think the biggest hurdle for that particular setting is that the expansion would almost certainly have to include all of the map tiles for the campaigns ... well, except for the dungeon settings from the core set. They did it for Nerekhall, so I would not write it off - I just wonder if most of those production resources are being dumped into the Star Wars glut right now (I am not entirely complaining about that!).

I agree that a winter setting would be fantastic, hopefully with snowy crags on one side and an icy cave on the reverse of each tile.
