4 Players game


Overlord Biggy

Heroes
Been - Grisban The Berserker
Milo(Me) - The book Necromancer
Guest(I can't remember his name he is at local store when we want to play) - Ashrian Disciple

When Biggy unbox his game
and said let's play

Me who play 1e more than 100 games said

er ok may be we play it 1 game (1e screnario took about 3-4 hour)

cuz it's only 1 screnario so we choose what hero look cool for us

we play Intro and Overlord said that only him can see the rulebook not heroes

we must guess what is victory condition for both side

that poor Ettin was triple attack by dwarf
and my skeleton and ashrian

down in first contact

but hero never search cuz we don't care



So it end in less than 15 minutes

And I said What is this (I'm not impress at all)

this is not enough for us

so we decide to go advance campaign

Overlord Biggy misinterpret rule and

connect map tile for fat goblin to us

and tell us nothing more than

this four token are grain
this is grain Silo

And there's shark monster start in front of us

We really confuse what should we do

So The berserker attack the shark with feat and use 2 action to walk away
ashrian attack The shark and move to grain

I said leave this guy and that search token to me
my skeleton and my staff kill the shark

when it's overlord turn he place That shark in front of me again (yes he misinterpret again he think he can summon shark on same tile)

Shark attack me and my skeleton at once but miss

goblin running to grain
so i can guess what will happen (and assume from always reappear shark that we must protect grain)

We really surprise that Shark can reapear everytime so i let both heroes go

and My skeleton block shark movement (I don't know that big monster can shrink)

and try to run away

Overlord forget that big monster must shrink and waste his shark fighting skeleton

Overlord got 1 grain we save 3



encounter 2 we fight shadow dragon and cave spider
it's really a tough fight and when splig find the shadow binder in turn 3
we already think we lost (cuz we don't know victory condition)

Overlord said that splig now carry him
and move splig toward us

So we can guess that he try to run away (we think there's secret passage in prison section)

So we block him in his first room and slaughter him and his goblin

we won really easy

3rd was dragon guy try to kill all guard
but turn out to be slaughter by 2 guard instead (Overlord rolled really bad)

The overlod start whining crying
"this is impossible for overlord to win and he call it a game for today"

but i'm really surprise that hero can't read quest book so I ask here
and you guy answer me




Next time I already read all rule

Our guest hero change to Jain Fairwood the Ranger (another guy we met at meeting)

We play Cardinal Plight

2 zombie in
but we manage to save cardinal (The Berserker really good at praying to restore cardinal health)

and interlude I
I assume that
since heroes win more
game will compensate by make this Interlude I more harder than Interlude II (am I right ?)

I already got Army of death

when overlord line all his minion in clear sight for me
1 army of death kill all of them

and he start whining again

we reach the exit really easy
and got that Rune

Overlord Call it a game for today

and start whining in FB Group that Overlord can't win in this game

I cheer him up by said that Act II monster are a lot tougher and heroes don't have good gears

Both me and been cheer him a lot
so he decide to run game again

This time Our guest Hero is Widow the rune master equip with Shadow rune

We fight in element screnario

in Encounter II
Shadow dragon Act II
kill all heroes really easy

Well it's his first win so he feel happy now

I got snow storm for me but still can't find grinding axe

In Twin Idol screnario

Rune master Blast all goblin die in 1 shot
and continue kill new arrive goblin in 1 shot

I immobilize Ettin and kill him really easy

Dwarf open the door

Encounter 2 we really got advantage since army of death and rune master can clear a lot of minion easy

me and my skeleton block path in case he use double dash

but it's a long game Dwarf still manage to get the idol by equip double shield (1 from treasure one from Act I screnario)

we win again

and overlord call it a game for today



we still waiting for our last game

and still recruit guest hero (If you in Thailand ^-^)



from my point of view well
this game can't compare to 1e cuz it's epic game (skill / item / dice upgrade)

but because the game take less time it's easy to find time to play it

Next long campaign we will use Conversion Kit and I will be Overlord

sorry for my bad english

I agree with you on that Descent 2nd does not feel so epic as 1st with Road to Legend Advanced Campaign.

But, also I feel thorn because 2nd is quicker, and sometimes that is good.
I feel like we may hope to see a Road to Legend-like advanced campaign in the future, after some expansions are out.

Oh and one very important thing in 2nd edition you guys missed out: the whole encounter objective is OPEN TO ALL, so the overlord needs to let you know all, it is not hidden the objective is open...

Yes I know it before Act I quest III
But it's ok cuz we win every match

I think each class should get more skill

after I got fury of the dearth
Army of death
Vampiric Blood

I have no more interest in upgrade anything now

Weirdly enough, that appears to be a thing FFG didn't think about in Twin Idols or Wyrm Turns.

In my group we decided that if the Elemental turns to air he drops items he carries on one of his spaces (OL decides). That makes it still pretty powerful (maybe still too powerful?), but managable.

You keep all the items you don't sell.

You can trade around everything except the starting equipment during the Campaign Phase, so before travel and starting a quest.

Er I think you can sell starting equipment for 25 gold isn't it ?

I think I read it somewhere

Can I swap to that relic shield if all of my heroes never equip it when begin scenario ?
