I've thought about using the dungeons from the original Descent booklet and it's expansions, instead of some of the dungeons you get from the separate cards. I want to do this since my group has NEVER played normal descent so those scenarios are completely unused, but I also like the idea of replacing three smaller dungeons with one bigger challenge.

I pause at the prospect of this though, because the balance could very well be warped in regards to campaign- and monsterlevels not too mention how to balance what the reward for chests will be, unless of course one would simply use the campaign rules for chests as usual.

Still, it seems like a waste not to use them, as some of the quests seem to have a lot of funny moments and altough some present big challenges it would seem like bigger rewards to the players. What I really would like though is comments and thoughts, or even better: results from attempts at actually trying this. Or am I just insane?

I think they are too long and favor the OL way to much. Especially with the twice through the deck limit and such.

i would highly suggest not to do this. the 3 level dungeon system, is a huge benefit to the hero party, where the heroes can take their last turn to get out of a dungeon level and then start the next level negating an OL turn.

Hmmmm I had a suspicion this might be the case. Very well, I will not trade the 3-level system for the normal dungeons mid-campaign...

Unless you leave the gold and silver chests as is, in which case they might well develop a strong lead depending on which "normal" dungeons they get first.

Seriously though, if you want to play the vanilla quests, play vanilla Descent. The AC game is great and all, but there's still something to be said for the occasional one-off session.
