As the first Descent PBF was a resounding success I'm making a recruitment thread hoping to continue the trend. Here you can sign up for playing or moderating a game.

FAQ
WIP

Resources

I've made a set of custom Descent dice for pasting into the GeekRoller.
(The silver/gold/other dice will be made once I get the expansions. Also, don't test the roller here, there is a testing forum for that.)

DESCENT DICE CODES:

Red Melee Die:
1custom6{iid:1057263;iid:1057256;iid:1057258;iid:1057260;iid:1057262;iid:1057261}

Blue Ranged Die:
1custom6{iid:1057251;iid:1057247;iid:1057248;iid:1057249;iid:1057249;iid:1057250}

White Magic Die:
1custom6{iid:1057267;iid:1057264;iid:1057264;iid:1057265;iid:1057266;iid:1057266}

Green +Damage Die:
1custom6{iid:1057252;iid:1057252;iid:1057253;iid:1057253;iid:1057254;iid:1057255}

Yellow +Range Die:
1custom6{iid:1057270;iid:1057271;iid:1057272;iid:1057272;iid:1057242;iid:1057242}

Black Power Die:
1custom6{iid:1057245;iid:1057246;iid:1057246;iid:1057243;iid:1057243;iid:1057243}

Clear Stealth Die:
1custom6{iid:1117791;iid:1117791;iid:1117790;iid:1117790;iid:1117790;iid:1117790}

Silver Power Die:
1custom6{iid:1117796;iid:1117789;iid:1117789;iid:1117795;iid:1117795;iid:1117795}

Gold Power Die:
1custom6{iid:1117793;iid:1117794;iid:1117794;iid:1117792;iid:1117792;iid:1117792}

Note: Roller will allow max. 3 kinds of custom dice due to character limit. If you have 4+ different dice, split them into 2 rolls.

If you include a commentary (e.g. roll title) in the roll, it'll get rid of the annoying code (it's still visible beneath the post if you really need to)!

(AND FOR GOD'S SAKE AND ALL THAT IS HOLY, USE SPACES (die + die)IN MULTIPLE ROLLS, OTHERWISE THE DESCRIPTION WILL BREAK FORUM TABLES!!)


TILESYSTEM + DESCENT TILES
We use the TileSystem engine which looks great and is very easy to update. I've made an upgrade to the files found elsewhere on BGG, which includes:
- all hero icons, including promotional ones
- all familiars
- lingering effects / order icons
- colored arrows to denote unit movement
- icons for hit/dead heroes/monsters
- random blood splatters to prettify the game :>

TileSystem + Descent tiles + my upgrade in one bundle, tested and works
My upgrade to Descent tiles only - you need both TileSystem and the Descent WART tiles, I used version 1.1. Not tested!

GM FILES
A handy Excel file for storing information (I found that it's easier to update the player info on the status text, so the character sheets are often unused). Also a text template to post along with each map update.

.XLS gamedata file
Text template for stats

I'd be interested in playing as a hero. I am typically the OL in the group and have only once really played as a hero.

What's the expectation for time to reply? I am on A LOT during the week - but weekends get more touch and go pending what we are doing.

I would never really have more than a day without looking however on the weekend. (I check BGG before bed every night.)

Anyway - would be fun to play!

Normally I require no longer than 24 hour delay before submitting orders, however you'll want to discuss tactics with your fellow heroes. It's a bit easier on the OL. Checking once a day is a must for a fast game, unless someone wants to GM in a more relaxed style.

As for free weekends/holidays/etc., I assume the timer is off on holidays and weekends are typically more relaxed, although I'd be happy if we get a turn per weekend

As always, conditional orders help A LOT with that.

Maybe the adventure design has gotten better over the years. I'd like to try out a Tomb of Ice game.

Also, there's an adventure in the compendium that requires all of the expansions. That could be fun.

As the sauron I started to make a text file that looks like this:

Master Ogre (3MP, 8HP, 5AC, Melee, Knockback, Undying)

The idea is good in theory, but please edit this ASAP.
If you send me that file I'll add it to the GM files.

edit: I think the [c] tag is unbreaking the spaces, removing it should suffice.

That's pretty much all there was of the file. I had just started it.

OOOHHHH - just noticed game 2 will be WoD - will the OL decide the scenario?

I always loved OLing the first one where the dungeon caved in. If the heroes seemed to come in a little cocky I would include Kobold Horde into my deck (I believe it was that one - might have just been swarm - can't recall if there was a red treachery point available for the first quest or not) but was always fun to drop that on them part way through and see their hopes sink.

Do you have the compendium? I do but have never played any from it - would be sweet to run the one that requires all the expansions. I would be a MUST IN for that one. Could assist in getting it to whoever would OL (as I said before - I want to be a hero for once!)

I also have both the books from the 2 terrinoth events... there are some interesting ones there... including a scenario where you have 2 teams of 2 and the opposing teams OL for the others in a fight to the center. (I believe that is how it was.)

I'll be a player again for Game 2 if there are open slots. The last one was quite fun.

For those asking about post frequency. The game we played lasted 10 turns and took about a month, so I guess on average we get a turn complete, overlord and players every three days. Some of the overlords turns were very fast, so some evenings a player turn ended, then an overlord, and then the next player turn started.

Players discussions of tactics, an important part of the game, especialy when not face to face, is IMO the biggest slow down factor of the PBF game.

Sweet! Full game! Look forward to playing with you Corbon... We talked some with the latest FAQ project (until i had my kiddo and lost all my free time lol.) but will now get to actually play some together.

And have they given any word back yet on it?

I remember, though I have trouble recalling who matches what forum sign sometimes. :-)

Yeah, my wee fellow is talking now. Problem is, I can't always tell if it is gibberish, baby-mangled english, or Bahasa (my wife is Indonesian). He stood with me at the door this morning telling me something repeatedly, until my wife told me he was telling me to get out of the way so he could open the door - "make way" equivalent. :D

I figured I've said a lot at times, on this and the FFG forum, so I ought to put my money where my mouth is and front up! We'll see how it goes.
The last group had an amazing draw (see killer Carthos and Telekinetic Astarra) so it will be difficult to match their level of success. When we played that quest we only won as heroes due to a Killing Blow feat on a back-up hero's Stone Cutter after the main combat heroes were either caught in town or failed miserably against the Dragon Boss.
