I just recently purchased Descent 2, and it now comes with The Heirs of Blood campaign. However, that campaign is available separately. I 'm wondering if there is a way to get the Shadow Rune campaign, which was not included. Thanks!

It was said by an official partner of FFG, that "The Shadow Rune" will be released as a campaign book (like "Heirs of Blood") at a later date.

But this is nothing to worry about. If you want to play an additional big campaign, I would highly recommend getting the "Shadows of Nerekhall" and "Labyrinth of Ruin" expansions, even if the campaign book was already available.

Edit: Sadly the plans to release "The Shadow Rune" as a campaign book were dismissed.

I play Descent 2E for some time now, recently played the Manor of Ravens and Nerekhall expansions and a few weeks ago finishing up the last shadow-rune campaign that was running for a long time.

I can only say it felt extremely basic and kind of awkward, because yeah the quest design is extremely subpar compared to any other campaign (but especially compared to the more recent ones). As you already own the newest full campaign, I would advise you to not bother with the shadow rune campaign it imo will only be a disapointment.

If you want a new campaign get Shadow of Nerekhall it's by far the best expansion imo.

Ok, thanks both of you. That seems to be the general consensus, so I probably won't bother with it unless they rework it for the book.

It helped me actually, thanks!
Just recently got the core game and wondered about the same thing.
Sorry for necrothreading though.

Interesting info. I didn't know that The Heirs of Blood is now part of Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) core box.

Yes, I just purchased the game and the Heir of Blood book not realizing it was redundant. My shop employee was unaware as well when I asked what was required for the campaign

Try this one.
I'm not sure it's exact same file, but looks very much like a paper campaign book that came with the game:

If you, like me, do not like to sign up for some service to get it, it seems like "Necronomicon_6" just recently uploaded the "The Shadow Rune" quests here:
https://tools.fantasyflightgames.com/descent/

See example of "The Twin Idols":
https://tools.fantasyflightgames.com/descent/htmlpreview/885...

And the map is here:

Henrik, it still seems to be in the post above as individually made quests, but the full pdf has been taken down. That's likely to continue to happen as it's copyrighted material. I'm a bit surprised it's still in the vault, but that's probably because literally no one is managing that...
