The app is web-based and can be reached here:
by LFITQWe gave this app a go tonight. We played through most of the tutorial and then dove right in.
During the side quest we were on, we performed a search and it told us to pull a card from the search deck. That card told us to draw a random item from the shop deck.
We couldn't figure out how to add that item to our inventory in the app. The same would go for the various potions we also found.
Any idea how to add inventory items to the app so there is a record of those items and is an option to sell them in the shop?
by SadgitHi all,
can someone help me out with the hero fluff text (on the back side of the hero sheet) for the following heroes?
- Challara (Bonds of the Wild)
- Raythen (Raythen Lieutenant Pack)
Stewards of the Secret
- Okaluk and Rakash
Shards of Everdark, when released
by ExuperyI see that there is not a huge amount of people confused or lost with the Road to Legend APP, so I must be an idiot. Because I am really confused about a lot of stuff involving this wonderful app.
The issue is A Soul to Save quest.
The main objective of this sidequest is to eliminate a certain Bove Wolfe.
The guy pops-up from the very first tile, at the beginning of the quest.
From that moment on all you have to do is find a way to kill Bove.
OK. So far so easy.
Somehow I've managed to kill / "kill" him on my fourth round.
Then something happens (AFTER I kill him):
"Bove hisses a near-silent cackle as his wounds stitch themselves closed. He approaches the door, and it splits in two as he presses his hands against it. Before you can stop him, he flees into a hall blanketed in webs and darkness."
Then the App asks me to "continue".
So I continue.
You put a new tile on the table and spawn some spiders.
But where is Bove?!
The App still shows his icon on the right side of the screen.
But the App does not tells me where to spawn Bove on the new board.
So his icon is still showing (it only shows when an enemy is not defeated and thus he can take turns, as usual) but no spawn place for Bove?
So what is happening?
What I am doing wrong?
Where is Bove?
When his turns comes (as prompted by the App), I don't know where Bove should be, if he can attack me or not. Because I don't see him, the App told me nothing about his place, after I've already killed him.
Pheew, this is too long, I am sorry.
Anyway can help, please?
by MordlissHey all,
Since the App dropped, and we are all anticipating the first full fledge co op campaign to be released soon for the app, I know a bunch of us have been craving to complete our collection!
Well, CoolStuffInc is selling each of the hero and monster packs for $26!! They also have all 8 of the packs in stock!
by Bohde8781Anyone have 8.5x11 print or electronic version of the Quest Guides for Lair of the Wyrm, Trollfens, or Manor of Ravens? Or/also, an electronic version of Heirs of Blood (I can prove I own a physical copy)?
All 3 of my copies of these expansions came with 9.5x9.5 quest guides, and won't fit into 8.5x11 sheet protectors in a 3-ring binder (or my 8.5x11 scanner to make my own electronic resized versions). Trying to combine all of my quest and rule guides into a single 3-ring binder to organize.
Interesting that FFG has released all newer small-box expansions (Mists of Bilehall and both Imperial Assault small boxes) with 7.5x9.5 form factor guide books.
I'd had my eye on Descent for a little while but with the release of Imperial Assault, I've heard many say it's a better version of the game system with a different theme.
Don't get me wrong, I love Star Wars, but I think for a dungeon crawl game I'd prefer the fantasy theme. I also think it'd be easier to get people in my play group on board with a fantasy theme over Star Wars.
I'm wondering though, is it worth it to get into Descent now? Is there a chance we might get an updated version? A version 3.0 perhaps, that might be worth holding off for? Or should I maybe just pull the trigger on Imperial Assault?
What does everyone else have to say?

by magicbus1966A couple questions:
1. Does anyone know how the Fame mechanic works (how to increase/decrease it) and the result(s) of higher/lower fame?
2. Will not purchasing lieutenant packs but inputting them into the app for the Peril effects work provided I've purchased the corresponding expansion (i.e. input Valyndra because I've purchased Lair of the Wyrm), or will I be missing something besides the awesome figure?
by CurtisBrooksIs Kindred Fire available on the Kindle Fire?
If so, I cannot seem to find how or where to download the new campaign. Any help? Thanks.
by nexbotThe first "full" campaign has just been released, and though it's brand new, I wanted to post this up here so everyone could chime in with their non-spoiler thoughts on what appears to be the first complete demonstration of the app's capabilities.
What is everyone's thoughts on the Kindred Fire Campaign?
by dyeyk2000Wanted to get a couple to supplement my RTL campaign, but they seem to be sold out at most OLGS?
Seems like a missed opportunity from the OLGS/FFG? They even highlighted the use of lieutenant packs in the Kindred Fire article.
by AnimalMkIVStarted the Goblin campaign last night with RtL on Steam and did the tutorial and the sorcerer side quest. Really enjoyed it, the update has made things a little easier.
Came back to town this morning, bought new equipment and saw I had a choice of two more side quests and still a week to go before the main quest would start. Picked one and it asked me to lay out tiles in the 40 range.
I only own the base set & Nerekhall so I only have tiles 1-30 & 50-70. Those are the only sets I have ticked in the app. What set uses tiles 40-49?
I've had to surrender the quest, the other side quests have now gone, I've lost a week and must now start the main quest. Pretty pissed off now.
Wow, I was crushed!
I'm wondering if I'm playing it horribly wrong, or if it is suppose to be this hard?
[o]I played solo as three heroes. In the beginning of the game, I had some pretty bad luck. Rolling x's on the blue die and missing like 3 out of my first 6 attacks.
I didn't know if I should clear out the monsters or just run for the door. I killed like half of them but was pretty hurt along the way. I then had one guy run for the door and my hero who was furthest back got knocked out.
From this point, things happened fairly quickly. It seems like once you are knocked out you are not off so well lol. When I would come back, I would roll like one or two hearts and be knocked out again the next round.
I did unlock the door which triggered even MORE monsters. Yikes, I don't know how I would ever win this mission![/o]
Overall I had fun but not as much as I hoped. Though I imagine it is more fun when you do better lol.
by Sargeras777Is there any determined order? First heroes and then overlord or..?
I ask because it can be pretty relevant at times. It can matter which Plot deck is chosen, which monsters are selected, what is purchased, etc...more than a little.
by BudapestMy wife and I have played Rise of All Goblins with Leoric/Necromancer and Reynart/Champion. I'm sure she will want to play Leoric again as either a Necromancer or Runemaster.
What would be a good complimentary hero I could play? I own LotW and a couple of H&M packs but I'm willing to purchase another expansion to give us the best experience with a full Road to Legend campaign.
by MishenkaFrom everything Ivew read th Rumor system introduced in LotW and continued in other expansion is kind of a failure, since there is very little strategic reason for the OL to play these quests.
Has anyone designed a good fix for this? Perhaps having the rumor quests public and allowing both the heroes and OL choose to do one?
by Symphonic5When does the RtL app save your progress? I may have to stop in the middle of a game and don't want to lose my progress so far.
by MishenkaIs there a good summary of all the attack keywords (such as Blast, etc) that anyone made? I tried searching, but only found one for 1st ed.
by MishenkaHeroQuest is the ONLY dungeon crawl game. Admit your mistake and all will be forgiven.
by WhitezDear all,
I have been contemplating buying descent for while now. While I was doing my research Ive read that the game is unbalanced when played
in One vs Many Mode, as in either the overload or the heroes will just stomped over the other during the campaign with no real chance of a comeback.
My question is, is the game really unbalanced? and if it is, is there any expansions/packs that fixes the balance issues within the game?
P.S. I am aware of the app, I would be still interested in playing One vs Many.
by WolvercoteSo I'm planning on running Shadow of Nerekhall for between 5 and 6 players. I've done some reading here and there on how to adjust for this and still haven't quite figured out a satisfactory solution.
I toyed with the idea of one player being an anti-hero but that doesn't appeal to me as much now.
If anyone here has run extensive sessions with more than 4 players I'd love to hear your advice on what worked for you.
by Symphonic5Do you recover all health and fatigue after each quest in the RtL app? I'd think yes, but then I read you have to visit a city before recovering morale.
by LCS213So...just finished the first quest in Kindred Fire and went to do a side quest. In the setup it asked me for tiles in the 40's. I only have the base game and shadows of nerekhall. I tried to back out of the app to see if somehow it thought I had another set but no. And going back into the campaign I can't go back. Anyone else have an issue like this? Is there a way to reset a quest or go back to town?
by Jonathan68After learning about the app that allows you to play fully cooperatively I've been set on getting this game. My brother in-law owns the first edition coffin box edition for this game and would be willing to sell it to me pretty cheap. So I wanted to see what you would recommend.
Should I get the 2nd edition or the first edition + the 2nd edition upgrade kit. When all is said and done the price will be about the same.
by Sargeras777Since the basic rules stipulate no bonus for victory, does the Overlord receive 2 threat instead of just 1 if he manages to win that quest (since the rules were conceived and written without the Plot concept)?
by Sargeras777The rulebook, page 11:
[QUOTE]Each hero can carry any number of Shop Item, Class, and Search cards
he chooses. However, the number of these cards that a hero may equip is
We might have been playing the game wrong all along. The Search cards have got to be equipped?!?
I haven't noticed icons in the bottom of any Search card...
Am I missing anything? Does an action need to be spent to equip a Search card?
[QUOTE]Heroes may give or receive Shop Item cards, Relic cards, and Search
cards to or from each other during a move action. At any point during
his move action, a hero may trade any number of Shop Item cards, Relic
cards, or Search cards with an adjacent hero. Trading does not require an
additional action or the expense of movement points.
A hero must still wait to equip any cards he receives until the start of
his next turn. [/QUOTE]
The further info on trading cards would indicate it seems so.
by Sargeras777The new change for this skill alters the "movement point" to "move spaces".
Was this purely semantic or has it changed something in precise?
by axlcoxWeek to week, my gaming group may alter somewhat. Does the app in any way let you add or remove players from the group between quests?
by ExilfrankeHeja fellow gamers,
now with Kindred Fire out there on the tablets, many bad reviews concerning Descent 2nd Editions are a thing of the past. Descent has now a game-mode which is fully Dungeoncrawl-Coop and done in a way that sets it above any other Dungeoncrawl out there. Do you think this will sooner or latere be reflected in the rating of the game, which is currently at 7.8 at BGG?
by KristoferPI think i have encountered a bug. I ended the app after completing the first quest of the tutorial. When I started again I entered Tamaril and bought som items. When I left I only se Tamaril on the map and nothing else. The only option i have is to enter Tamaril again. Am I missing something?
by SlowmowHello! I have never purchased anything over BGG, if this is not the right form, please let me know!
I am looking for the hero cards for the Dungeonquest heroes, so that I can use them in Descent. We have had DQ for about a year now and love it! I recently got Descent and we are also having a fun time with that as well! Great games, both of them! My wife and I would love to use some of our DQ favourites in Descent. I've looked online, but cannot find them for a decent price (10$ a hero! 60$ for all of them is a bit much). Does anyone have the cards and willing to part with them for a fair price please let me know!
Thank you all for your help!
by ryno80Holy! Did you guys get these yet? I got two rounds worth of Deadly Perils and OMG! The first told me to suffer EIGHT damage divided among my heroes. The second FOURTEEEEEEN DAMMAAAAGE divided among my heroes. This was the Merriod tentacles sidequest, btw.
by chub18028Somehow along the line I lost a box that had all the Monster and Hero miniatures, that came with the core game Descent 2e, stored in it. I am looking for anyone out there who would who might have those figures to sell. I can't pay much or I would buy a new game.
How do you activate the familiar in road to legend? I was playing with a familiar and I don't see a way to let the app know that the familiar has been activated.
Do you activate the familiar on the same turn as the hero that is controlling him?
by BudapestWe have played 3 quests in Rise of All Gobins (intro and the two side quests). After exiting th second side quest, Tamalir appears grayed out and we cannot go there. Is this a bug? Looking through the log I can't figure out what happened. It doesn't show staying in Tamalir two weeks in a row.
by virferrorumI'd like to chat about the Plot Decks that come with the Lieutenant Packs. Let's rate them according to preference, and then feel free to post why X is your favorite and what OL decks you like to use with them.
SLIGHT SPOILER WARNING:
Without including anything too spoiler-ish, when we clicked one of the ethereal weapons, giving it away, it even reconfirms the one we're thinking of, but then selects the wrong one to give to a warrior. That messes up the scenario pretty badly. Anyone else encounter this yet, or have advice?
by OlvenskolOrphan Black, season 4, episode 3. Descent plays a noteworthy role in the episode, ending with the main character's child sweeping the game onto the floor!
by chico_aceI have a lot of expansions and hero packs. I want to use them all am pretty much am planning on throwing everything in a PLANO box. Maybe separate the map tiles by numbers into big bags breaking them by numbers.
Are all the condition tokens and objective tokens used if you play RTL? What about the shop item cards? Do you combine them into one deck? There are so many tokens, just curious if they are all used in RTL.
I have to figure out a way to store stuff so it will be efficient to play. Maybe using too many expansions is overkill.
by tgclericGame group loves Imperial Assault. And no where near the end of all the campaigns. Havent been able to keep up with the expansions.
And everything I see, it seems like Imperial Assault is pretty much just a better version of Descent. Ignoring theme, and specifics. or even if one is "better" its so close that they are the same game.
That said, the App intrigues me (as does painting the mins). Is it a pretty different experience without the overlord? Is it worth getting for the true coop experience even if we are still playing Imperial Assault? Does it make it a different enough game?
by fisihhLast week i build a new transport Box for Descent 2nd + 5 Addons + Coop Expansions.
(Box from Amazon.de )
Here some pics (Not all minis painted at the moment)
by MarylandBearI've got Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) on my dining room table, and the Road to Legend app on my iPad.
What are the best physical expansions to the game to enhance my Road to Legend experience? I'm more interested initially in things that offer me as the player more options, so expansions with "cool" or "interesting" new would be my prefefence.
by Morph ModeSo, adding a lieutenant pack to your collection adds a peril effect that summons the corresponding lieutenant (according to the app).
If you have a set it seems as though you should just add all lieutenants to your collection (ie: zacareth, belthir etc from the base game) because you will always at least have the lieutenant card and token for it. Or does the peril effect summon the 'agent' version of the lieutenant which you would need the add-on pack for?
Has anyone run into problems doing this?
by Blue GremlinI really like the Road To Legend App changes that were made. I am planning on using these in standard Descent, and was wondering if anyone has done the same? Are there any potential issues to be aware of?
1 - Morale tracker
2 - Alternating turn structure
by soliddHey everyone,
My game group is playing through The Shadow Rune for the first time. We have 4 heroes and 2 overlords (no game changes have been made with a second overlord. It's simply another brain to consult with). We're going to do the Interlude, The Shadow Vault, tomorrow, but I was wondering if anyone thought the campaign was unbalanced in favor of the overlords? It seems like the overlord has too many advantages unless the heroes get perfect dice rolls. The overlord also gets to use two shadow dragons seemingly all the time. The heroes in my group are getting really frustrated with how easily the overlords win, so much so that myself and my girlfriend (as the overlords) decided to not use the shadow dragons anymore just to give the heroes a fighting chance. And even then, it's a steep uphill battle.
Do my heroes just suck at cooperating and forming a strategy?
Furthermore, I mentioned to them we probably wouldn't play another campaign and that I would let the game just sit on the shelf, but then I thought about the expansions. Do any of the expansions feel more balanced? I want a close battle feel, not the smearing the overlords are doing right now (even without dragons). I get that I am the all powerful overlord and I'm supposed to be overpowered, because I'm the villain, y'know? The heroes are supposed to struggle and ultimately win. That's writing-101, right? But my heroes just aren't having fun. Would an expansion change this?
