So how much book keeping is there in Descent? I play Shadows of Brimstone and there is a ton of book keeping there and even though I enjoy SoB it's almost too much to keep up with and it makes it so I don't want to play some times.

No where near as much as Brimstone. All of Descent's "bookkeeping" boils down to a few cards per player (skills and items for heroes, cards for Overlord) and one campaign sheet (to keep track of missions and XP). That's it. Pretty simple and straight forward.

Have a look at some apps like "Descent Campaign Tracker" for Android. There also the good old http://d2etracker.com/.

The book keeping is minimal. Basically keeping track of a few skill cards and how much health/stamina you have.

The level of book keeping between Descent and SOB really isn't even comparable.

As stated, the bookkeeping during the game itsself is rather minimal.

In between sessions there's some tracking which gear/skils/OL cards, relics players have acquired, but there are online apps that help you do it as stated above or campaign trackers that can be printed out. Campaign tracker
