|Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition | Published 19 June 2013|
An ancient city full of peril and mystery awaits in the ruins of Sudanya, a lost civilization on the edges of Terrinoth. Horrid creatures haunt the heroes’ every step, but powerful allies will guide them through the twisting maze of wilderness and broken cityscape.
Labyrinth of Ruin, an expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition, is coming in just a few more weeks! Introducing an all-new epic campaign, plus new heroes, monsters, classes, and more, Labyrinth of Ruin takes players on a riveting journey to the broken remains of a forgotten city. Throughout the many quests included in this expansion, heroes will enlist the aid of unique allies in their mission to stop the evil overlord.
An Evil Sorceress Plots Destruction
The comprehensive campaign in Labyrinth of Ruin features nineteen narratively rich quests. While they can be enjoyed as standalone experiences, these engaging adventures were designed with campaign play in mind, telling the story of an enigmatic sorceress’s vile plot to bring darkness to the world; as with the base game’s campaign, “The Shadow Rune,” Labyrinth of Ruin uses a clever plot system that reacts to players’ successes and failures. With each successfully completed quest, either the heroes or the overlord will grow in power...leading up to a gripping showdown in the campaign’s finale. All this, along with new Travel Event cards, Condition cards, Shop Item cards, and two green power dice, ensure even greater customization and replayability than ever before!
In past previews, we’ve been able to examine the ally mechanic in detail, and we’ve looked into the new Hero classes: the Beastmaster and Apothecary as well as the Treasure Hunter and Hexer. Now, you can finally see the path laid before your feet into the Labyrinth of Ruin. The rules for Labyrinth of Ruin (pdf, 6.4 MB) are now posted on the support page!
Examine the maps and information found within, and prepare for a new adventure in an unexplored region of Terrinoth. Ready yourselves for new quests and combat, as you follow the road of exploration through the ruins. Labyrinth of Ruin will be soon be available through our webstore and your local retailer!
