I know they all share the same universe and we play all 3 games, a question came up today and I got no answer for it...

We have human hero, we have elf hero, dwarf and orc hero, and we even have an undead hero... where is the Ulthuk hero? Can we expect to get a Chaos Lord as hero in future expansion? devil

I wonder where the Uthuk are at all in Descent. Aside from the Uthuk Demon Trap I don't think there's been a mention of them.

Yeah, the second edition does mention the Daqan and Latari in the quest flavor texts. Is the "undead hero" Widow Tahra? I doubt she is actually a member of Waiqar's clan!

First edition predated Runewars but Second Edition is in the perfect position to tie future expansions into Runewars. Wouldn't it be cool to run into a dungeon patrolled by Waiqar or Uthuk enemy units found by a hero during the middle of the Runewars?


There is the undead hero in both 1st ed and runewars, the one which allows you to recover a fatigue every turn. I would assume he's from the Waiqar being and undead and all.

That's my sons favorite character right there!

He also always plays him in Runbound, and always plays Waiqar in Runewars and Run age.

Young Goth in the making I think.

There wasn't anything about them in D1E, although the Uthuk weren't officially introduced to the Terrinoth setting until Runewars, which postdated D1E's publication (and most of its expansions, too.)

D2E is only getting started, so its entirely possible that we'll see the Uthuk Y'llan in a forthcoming expansion set of some description.

Don't forget the dragon hybrid hero. =P

I suppose it's not impossible to see an Uthuk hero in this setting, though they are, by and large, kinda crazy with the demonic worship and blood drinking and such.

I highly doubt we'll ever see a Chaos Lord as a hero. Though as a monster, they'd be pretty bad-ass. =P

I doubt that we would see Chaos Lord being a dungeon monster and all, since it would be highly racist!! Ulthuk is a nation too! they're not random wild monsters
