Greetings!

Due to numerous questions revolving around Descent rules, a fan-based discussion at the original FFG forums has lead to development of Descent Wiki pages where fans have started creating a helpful base of question/answers and explanatory rules documents.

There are two Wiki pages available: 'Fan Created FAQ' for formulated questions+answers and 'Descent Facts', a more free-form collection of fan based writings about Descent rules interpretations.

So far about 50 questions and answers with confirmed source have been inserted to the 'Fan Created FAQ' page from the FFG Descent forum threads. Only answers where the source can be clearly identified are allowed to be added. As an answer source, (1) either a clarifying text identified from the rulebook paragraphs, (2) a reply from FFG employee or (3) from Mike Zebrowski (Descent playtester) are allowed. There is a common template for creating a question/answer pair.

What we would need next is to identify rule question threads here at BGG forums, where either Kevin Wilson or Mike Zebrowski has replied a statement about how a rule should be interpret AND add such question (if it has not yet been added in another form) to the Fan Created FAQ page under appropriate section. A hyperlink is needed to the discussion thread where the clarification has been made OR alternatively pointers to the official rule book where the answer is explicitly stated.

Also, to simplify searching in the FAQ using the best search tool available (CTRL-F), headings of the rulebook paragraphs relevant to the question can be identified and added to the question template.

Now, you are welcome to have a peek at
http://descentboardgame.wikispaces.com/, where you can find links to both
'Fan Created FAQ Wiki'
and 'Descent Facts'

Enjoy (and contribute)!

I guess this game has gained enough new players to justify a shameless bump for the wiki site...
