Hey all, I have all the D&D board games like Ravenloft, Ashardalon, etc.
I have never been too happy with the game play in those games but love the components.

I was wondering if the monsters and Heros can be brought over to work with this system?

Different stats, different combat system, different way how feats work, different scale, etc. So no, absolutely not compatible.

you could use the miniatures if you were willing to write your own rules and stats for the content.

Which is true for each and every game that uses miniatures. ;-)

If you've kickstarted you should be getting AI cards for galaxy defender creatures, you could substitute those for suitable D&D monsters.

Well, I was looking to buy, but since I can't combine it with the D&D games, I already have, I guess I will pass. This doesn't look that much different than what I already have other than there is a bit more character leveling.

I was equally disppointed when I realized Mice&Mystics and Snakes&Ladders aren't compatible with the Dungeons&Dragons board games. Does anyone know if Axis&Allies or Rum&Bones are compatible?

It migth not look different, but its a totally different kind of gameplay there. S&S is not only about character leveling. It needs strategic positioning in fights. Also enemies react distintly different and need different tactics. Its not like in D&D wehre the basically just have different values for some stats.

Personally I'm thinking/hoping there is a lot more to this beyond the d&d games than just leveling. At this point though there would be no reason not to wait until after there are some reviews out anyway.
