Im about to run my first game of Descent! and im getting all excited angry and overlordish

One question though, can I as overlord use my minions to open up doors to previously unrevealed areas for 2 moves? or can my minions only open and close doors to previously revealed areas?

thanks in advance,

Minions can not open doors in to areas that have not been revealed yet.

According to the p.13 of the base game rulebook...

"Important: Monsters cannot open any door leading to an unrevealed area."

And in addition...

"Important: Monsters can never open or close a rune-locked door."

Hope this helps :)

That part was actually changed in the errata so that named monsters can open and close rune-locked doors (whether or not the heroes have the appropriate rune key).

But monsters can still never open a door to an unrevealed area. That's very important.
