Cost: $0.00
Level: 0

First Session: Tuesday -- April 2nd, 2013 -- 5:00 PM
[Eastern Time]

Approx. Length: 1 session

Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is a board game in which one player takes on the role of the treacherous overlord, and up to four other players take on the roles of courageous heroes. During each game, the heroes embark on quests and venture into dangerous caves, ancient ruins, dark dungeons, and cursed forests to battle monsters, earn riches, and attempt to stop the overlord from carrying out his vile plot.

With danger lurking in every shadow, combat is a necessity. For such times, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) uses a unique dice-based system. Players build their dice pools according to their character's abilities and weapons, and each die in the pool contributes to an attack in different ways. Surges, special symbols that appear on most dice, also let you trigger special effects to make the most of your attacks. And with the horrors awaiting you beneath the surface, you'll need every advantage you can take...

Featuring double-sided modular board pieces, countless hero and skill combinations, and an immersive story-driven campaign, Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) transports heroes to a vibrant fantasy realm where they must stand together against an ancient evil.Boardgamegeek link

Apr 4, 2013 4:33 PM - Connolly206: That was a seriously fun game. I'm starting to get sad that I've come upon the joys of this type of gaming so late in life
Apr 3, 2013 5:02 PM - James L: oh yeah, don't forget to visit this event site again now and vote. Dont vote for me, since I DM all the time I have too many points. You can vote for yourself.
Apr 2, 2013 7:08 PM - James L: Ok Connoly and I r taking subway
Apr 2, 2013 7:06 PM - Sam K.: Oh crud just saw its not at Citicenter. I'm getting a cab.
Apr 2, 2013 7:05 PM - Sam K.: Sorry I'm late guys. Two blocks away.
Apr 2, 2013 7:00 PM - James L: The train goes right there. I'm at citicenter if Sam and Connolly meet me we can go over there.
Apr 2, 2013 6:59 PM - Tracy: It's 30th and 5th. I'm just getting set up now. I wondered why no one was here yet.
Apr 2, 2013 6:57 PM - Tracy: My apologies. In so used to playing here I didn't realize I didn't announce it.
Apr 2, 2013 6:56 PM - Tracy: Guys my bad. I'm at Au Bon gout.
Apr 2, 2013 6:36 PM - Connolly206: heading to citi. see u there

Apr 2, 2013 6:34 PM - Sam K.: Hey guys, Citicenter is probably easiest for me, but I can get anywhere depending on what's best for the group. Might be a few minutes late if it's not Citicenter, though (sorry!)
Apr 2, 2013 6:16 PM - Connolly206: I can do anywhere. I'm about to hit the holland tunnel coming in from nj, so it's all the same for me.
Apr 2, 2013 6:14 PM - James L: Well if you are going there. Sam has only ever been to Citicenter. Maybe it's best if we all go to Citicenter.
Apr 2, 2013 6:10 PM - Connolly206: where are we meeting? I was starting to head to citi center, is it not there?
Apr 2, 2013 6:04 PM - James L: this is at Cafe Au Bon Gout correct?
Apr 1, 2013 12:28 PM - Tracy: Definitely at 7 and just bring yourself, the game comes with everything you need. :)
Apr 1, 2013 12:28 PM - Tracy: Definitely at 7 and just bring yourself, the game comes with everything you need. :)
Apr 1, 2013 11:23 AM - Connolly206: Tracy, I just noticed on the lead page it says 5:00 pm, but on the game page it says 7:00. Can you confirm it's 7:00? I don't want to show up 2 hrs late.
Mar 29, 2013 7:12 PM - Connolly206: This sounds fun, I'm in. Do I need to bring anything?
Mar 29, 2013 7:08 PM - Sam K.: I'm in for tuesday at 7.
Mar 29, 2013 12:20 PM - Tracy: Cool, I will definitely run with 3 commited players.
Mar 26, 2013 3:40 PM - Capt_Dan: Sam - click on "Leave Interested List" at the top - if you still want to track the game, you will have to rejoin the "Interested List" after.
Mar 25, 2013 9:58 AM - Sam K.: Not sure how to leave the game now...
Mar 25, 2013 9:57 AM - Sam K.: Hey guys, sorry for the last-minute notice, but I have to pull out (at least on the 26th). Moving to a new apartment much sooner than planned and have to start packing. Could probably do it in the next week or two if you wind up rescheduling. No worries if not.
Mar 18, 2013 9:13 PM - Sam K.: Next week looks good so far.
Mar 18, 2013 7:29 PM - Tracy: Next week than?
Mar 18, 2013 12:28 PM - Tracy: It will start at 7 if at least 1 more person signs up...if not I will move it to next week (which actually works better for me anyway).
Mar 18, 2013 10:30 AM - Sam K.: What time does this start? It's listed as 5:00 in the grey description box and then 7:00 in the "game sessions" box. Thanks!
Mar 6, 2013 11:21 AM - Tracy: I'm going to move this due to low sign up activity. We can play with at least 2 players, but I'd prefer min. 3.
Mar 4, 2013 4:36 PM - Tracy: All you need do is show up. :) Rules are easy to learn.
Mar 4, 2013 2:02 PM - Sam K.: I've never played Descent before. Is this session ok for a new person? Is there anything I should do to prepare?
Mar 4, 2013 12:28 PM - Tracy: Descent 2 is a great update to the original. It has a great 'level up' system and you can save your character information for future Descent sessions I will post. Prepare to be destroyed.
