So, now that Descent 2 is out, time to run some PBF games, echoing the success of the first edition's forum, isn't it? Please post if you want to take part as a hero/OL/moderator (we always need mods). Doubly so if you have something to offer. Right now we need:

Scans, so I can put them into TileSystem: tiles, hero/monster/lieutenant portraits, obstacles, search and other tokens.

Dice roller: players have put together some already from the FFG-released dice cutouts, though the art bothers me for some reason. Untill I get myself to converting it, here it is (this one by Frankysan):

Brown Die:
1custom6{iid:1311400;iid:1311400;iid:1311401;iid:1311401;iid:1311401;iid:1311402}

White Die:
1custom6{iid:1311407;iid:1311407;iid:1311407;iid:1311408;iid:1311409;iid:1311410}

Black Die:
1custom6{iid:1311390;iid:1311390;iid:1311390;iid:1311391;iid:1311392;iid:1311393}

Blue Die:
1custom6{iid:1311394;iid:1311395;iid:1311396;iid:1311397;iid:1311398;iid:1311399}

Red Die:
1custom6{iid:1311403;iid:1311403;iid:1311403;iid:1311404;iid:1311405;iid:1311406}

Yellow Die:
1custom6{iid:1311411;iid:1311412;iid:1311413;iid:1311414;iid:1311415;iid:1311416}


Remember to comment the roll, otherwise you'll have an ugly description that breaks forum tables and makes everyone angry at you.

Also, forum for testing rolls is HERE. Please do not test rolls in this thread.

Ha! Give me some time to finish the TileSet (I'm cleaning up the scans now)

But sign me up to moderate at least one game (non-campaign) and play in one game (anything but Basic).

I'd love to be a hero alongside/against Shnar.

Or if he's moderating...

I'd be in for a Hero. Is anyone else silly enough to want to do an entire campaign? I'm game.

Never played a PBF board game before, but I'm up for playing a Hero on this one!

Is there an estimate date to start or something? I'll be travelling tomorrow, will be back next Monday.

I'll probably get my box before/on Monday, so we'll start next week. Unless someone wants to mod before then

Shnar, no hurry. If you have presentable scans you can send them to me and I'll take care of the Tileset stuff. It'd be nice to have a beter version than the first one, too.

OK, added games I and II (to differentiate them from Descent 1st games). Also added myself to have an opportunity to check everything, this way we'll have proper OPs and resources in time for game 3, which I'll be running to make up for this barging in

If I missed any of you, please reconfirm.

I don't yet have my copy (waiting on the Conversion Kit), nor have I played by forum before, but I'd delight at the chance to be a hero in a PBF. Especially if I am Runewitch Astarra, but, y'know. That's just a bonus.

Looks good to me.

Just to be clear for OL campaign purchases, though: heroes know which cards the OL has purchased, but not which cards are actually in his deck, right?

I was wondering how the turn order is going to be. I don't know how Descent 1st was, but on the 2nd the heroes can change their turn order every round. I've never played a PBF game before, but I'm guessing it should be better if the turn order was defined from the start for the whole game, right?

I'm interested.
I've never played a PBF game before, so if someone walks me through, I can be either OL or moderator (what does a moderator do?) for a campaign (it's gonna take forever, isn't it?).

It wouldn't, actually. Whoever posts bolded orders first takes their turn. If they screw up, it's up to the rest of the team to talk some sense into them.

And defined turn order can actually slow the game down, as we tend to play across different continents and it's hard to set up the order.

Nah, the turn order can change during this, as well. Heroes can discuss what the order should be before taking any actions. It's actually not too difficult in a PBF game.

A moderator is kind of the referee of the game. For Descent, that means two things - first, he handles all the decks, keeps track of what cards are still in each deck, and whenever a card is drawn, he's the one that posts what the card is (either publicly for something like search cards or in a PM for something like overlord cards). Second, he handles any kind of "prepared" actions for players - for instance, if the Overlord wants to play Tripwire on a certain hero if they decide to do something, he usually PMs it to the moderator and then the moderator makes it happen if the hero does what the OL predicted.
