Amazing. I was planning to get Descent 2.0 at the beginning of September (after arriving back to the US). Now I will have to get also the expansion in the next few months.

Start the guessing: when do you think it will be available for retail?

That didn't take long. Not that I'm surprised. It is FFG, after all.

Awesome!

This looks like it's still in development; as far as I can tell, all the cards - heroes (abilities box), equipment & monsters seem to have no text on them?

What I'm seeing:
Two new heroes (but no new classes).
Three new board segments (A6x6, 4x4 and Something 5x4-ish).
Two new monster miniatures, but approx 10 new monster cards.
A new lieutenant (might it be one of the miniatures?)
A couple of new artefacts plus some market items.
What looks like two new conditions (one of which is probably "on fire").
Plus one large token which looks like flames on a TV screen (whose purpose I can barely speculate at).

I'll guess that there will be more monsters than just the two shown, plus a quest guide with a handful of new quests (and hopefully a whole new campaign).

Shame there are no new classes.

It might be your screen which is a little too bright, but I can see some text (barely, it's very blur) on the hero textboxes.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

So is it a new campaign, or just an extra quest you plug into the current one?

Would be nice if it game with it's own campaign book.

I can see text - but not make out what it says! At a guess, the contents would have been developed at the same time as the base game, to come out so quickly.

The picture on that large token is the picture on the box. Which I think is some sort of flame dragon.

Probably some special indicator for a Dragon. I guess the "Wyrm" the lair refers to.

Actually, it's a reproduction of the fiery dragon as portrayed on the box. Not that it helps me determine the purpose of the token.

I can only see the two heroes at the moment; logically, I'd've expect four, one for each hero archtype?

I suspect we may not be seeing everything here in this one photo so hopefully at least one more new class per archtype is included.

It looks like some new OL cards underneath the monster cars on the left.

Not sure what the "horn" tokens are. Any ideas?

Does anyone think this will be a "token" dragon? And then they will sell the metal figure by it self? I hope not. That would be lame.

This looks great, but my real hopes are that it also includes a new campaign. To me, that's what's going to make the expansions worthwhile.

If I want just more stuff, I can always pick up the 1st edition and upgrade kit.

Yes, if it's a new Lt then this is exactly what they would do, which I'm fine with if it's Lt. I have my dragon from 1E I can use in its place.

I just hope there's a new campaign and/or ways to link the new scenarios with the campaign of 2E.

I'm going to run out of space in my storage box soon. I might have to expand to a second box

Looks underwhelming for an expansion, no matter the price :-/

I suspect that the dragon's a lieutenant, and so he gets a cardboard counter instead of a miniature (which, incidentally, I find quite bizarre; heroes and monsters get plastic, but LTs which are every bit as important get cardboard).

And most expansions represent relatively poor value for money. FWIW, given how I only ever played a bit of RTL for 1st ed and never played any of the scenarios in any of the other 1st ed expansions despite buying them, they probably represented poorer value to me than is the norm.

Wow, do we actually get the heroes on the box in the game? (which we didn't for 1st or 2nd Ed's base games ).

Don't be silly, you know FFG has strict rules against the inclusion of box art char-

HOLY S%#&, they're included in the game! surprise
