Hey all

I just started playing through the road to legend campaign. I noticed that when monster groups were activated in the tutorial the turn order goes hero, monster group a, hero 2, monster group b, end of round.

Last time i read the descent game manual the heroes went one after the other, then the overlord activated the monsters. Road to legend seems to copy imperial assault.

Was this change made strictly for the app, or did they make a change to the core game as well?

Based on the road to legend PDF it appears to be a change only made for the app.

Open the app and hit the rules button.

Hi, you'll find the Road to Legend rules under 'Support' from the Descent Second Edition page on the publisher's web site: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/descent-journ...

You can also access the Road to Legend rules directly from the app's main page.

Regarding monster activation, I don't believe that applying the app's rules to the physical board game would be wise, as those scenarios and campaigns were designed with the initial system in mind (i.e. alternating between all monster groups and all heroes). Using the app's rule could potentially disrupt the balance of the game.

The Road to Legend scenarios and campaigns are original and were designed for the new rule.

Have fun!

Yeah good point. While i am grateful for road to legend and it allowing solo and coop play i still feel it doesnt replace the overlord. I would prefer to play against a person any day. Ive played through 1.5 missions on road to legend and i think its really cool. Glad to have this option for solo play bc not many ppl in my group are interested im decent.
