Double barrel, Grabber, Hellstone weapons and items
Wraith/Lost Soul/Vulgar/Bruiser/Forgotten/Maledict/Guardian/Sabaoth/Hunter monsters. Well, pretty much any monster I'm forgetting that hasn't been covered.

More scenarios, akin to the shorter online stuff.

What else could they do? Doom as a videogame was :Walk, kill , kill, heal, walk, kill, swim, kill, walk.

We have tons of monsters, corridor, airless corridors, multiplayer modes,
weapons...... the only way i can imagine Doom expanded further is with rules for elevation, a 3D map built like the old Necromunda complex, and other tons of plastic monsters.... is it still Doom?

A copy of the new license for Doom to extend the old one they had. The big reason (or so they say) that no replacement dice can be made is that the license is gone.

It would have to be a very rich donor indeed to convince FF to acquire a new license, I'm afraid, as there isn't much financial incentive otherwise.

If somehow an expansion were to appear in such a manner, I would want it to include a mechanism for greatly speeding up gameplay with maps that resolve more quickly, too. It would also have to offer content to stand with some serious competition. Claustrophobia and Earth Reborn have raised the game for tactical games such as this. I expect that Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) will be informed by much of what could have informed another Doom expansion or relaunch as Descent originally was intended to fix a number of "improvables" with Doom. It's a shame, really, as it was moving in the right direction with the first (and only) expansion.

It should have hell tiles, boss monsters and tiles that have a mixture of hell and normal terrain (to create maps mixing hell and bases.

I like getting *stuff* in my expansions, and with Doom, that stuff is basically Tiles and Miniatures. I don't think I want a whole lot of mechanic changes (i.e. I *don't* want to see something like Fatigue or other Descent mechanics), just more stuff. I'd love to see a lot more monster/invader figures. I'd love to see HELL Tiles (maybe the reverse of included tiles, like the outdoor tiles in Descent). And then a lot of other extras as Tibbs has mentioned (i.e. weapons, marine cards, etc).

Well, I would like to see shnar's advanced campaign with plastic figures, scenarios, maps, tiles, etc... Everything nicely packed in one box.

Bosses i.e. Maledict should take up 3x3 tiles and there should be 2 or 3 extra large rooms for boss fights.

I pictured the maledict to be a 2x3 figure, like the dragon in Descent:



I imagine with the wings spread, it's more oval than square.

Good point Shnar. The same would go for the other boss with the tank chassis as his base. What I wonder is this: if the Maledict is meant to be even more powerful than the cyberdemon, wouldn't that make him unbeatable?

If i can ask, how all that monster will enhance the gameplay of the actual Doom+Exp?
(I'm not so fond in the Doom universe -i like it as a firefight sci-fi game- and i don't know if that monsters have abilities so different to be "needed" in the game, so pls excuse me if my question is stupid blush)

You mean Saboath? I pictured him more square, 2x2 like the Cyber Demon:



As for their power levels, I see them similar to CyberDemon in dice strength but with different special abilities. They fit nicely in the frame of the Advance Campaign, since the Invader buys their specific upgrades.

It's just for variety. A similar question could be asked of all the monsters in Descent. Do we really need lava bugs and snow apes? HELL YEAH! More monsters = funner game. It's not that it's "needed" it just offers a greater variety and therefore more entertaining game

I think that an official rework of the original campaign must be provided.

I would hope for a campaign system such as Heroes of Legend for Descent, since shnar is too lazy to finish his.

I'd love to have a re-themed version based on DOOM 1 and 2, with blocky graphics, original artwork and invaders.
