I've played Descent: Journeys in the dark what seems like many times, (but in reality it's just something like six times), and every time, I've been the warlord. I am told the job of warlord is supposed to be hard, but it hasn't been yet. Maybe I'm a just a plain good warlord. Maybe the game is my kind of thing. Maybe, it's because I play with my younger brothers and cousin, who have no Idea, yet, what they are doing. Kinda fundevil...

If you must be TECHNICAL, then yes, you're correct, but warlord's cooler.

Well, go here, down below the images there is a section titled "Forum" with the option to "Post", that would be a better place to put this.


But one thing you may want to consider is that a new thread should have some sort of substance, subject or use, or something that ellicits discussion (Discussion apart from the question of how misplaced it is, I mean).

To be honest, this thread seems to have none of that. What exactly is your point? What do you want to talk about or tell us?
OK, you think you're a decent OL, and that your younger brothers and cousin suck at playing Descent...
So? Do you want tips to give to them on how to improve their play? Do you want to tell us something? Do you want to ask something?

Most likely they just haven't grokked the correct way to play Descent yet. Sans expansions, the game is balanced somewhat in favor of the heroes so if you've won six games straight as OL it's because the heroes are doing something wrong. It's a drastically different strategy than your usual dungeon crawl, which rewards a slow methodical approach. Descent is more of a race than anything because the overlord gains power with each turn, and can always spawn more monsters. Don't worry, if they ever figure out how to play, you'll be frustrated at how impotent you feel as the OL in all but 3 or so of the scenarios.
