See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

What do you guys think the likelihood of more expansions for Descent is? I wouldn't be surprised to see another Quest Compendum, but what about another boxed expansion with 7-10 scenarios, new Treachery cards, a few new heroes, etc.?

I actually think another quest compendium is not very likely.......at least not for a long time.
As for more expansions, I think that's a sure bet.

I am still hoping for one more non-campaign style expansion. Sea of Blood seems to be so full of problems - that are still waiting for many answers I understand... (I own but have not played it.)

I would be pretty shocked to not see anything new for Descent... OH - and 4 heroes in a different game does not count - 2-3 maps in a book from an event does not count. I am hopeful we will see some actual meaningful content. They can't go out on the current note - can they? Rough compendium. Rough expansion. They need something to redeem the series!

Well, I'm gonna post a Descent: Solo variant, which uses tiles from Wrath of Ashardalon, and you can always cook up some stats for your shiny D&D Boardgame miniatures.

Sounds like a good Idea, Sam and Max. I love Descent, but hate how you level up with weapons. I Hate the CR and WoASH Event cards. But love the treasures for WoA.
I think some combination of these is what is missing,


It's what I hope comes for Descent:
Ability to play without OverLord,
Leveling for characters.
and simpler weapons that don't make you a god. once you have them.
Put these in an expansion, and It'd fly off the shelves.

This would also entirely overhaul the whole treasure system of the game. Expansions typically don't overhaul a system that much. Tweak and change sometimes, but not completely invalidating 4 sets worth of treasure cards for a completely new way of doing things.

Personally, I don't think it would affect sales that much even if they DID change that. Descent is a hack-n-slash dungeon crawl, not an RPG-like, character development game.
