Oath of the Outcast is the latest expansion for Descent: Journey into the Dark and introduces four heroes and three monster groups previously only available in the first edition, as well as two brand-new quests. Trenloe the Strong, Laurel of Bloodwood, Elder Mok, and Shiver join your quests as eager heroes, but even as they enter your quests, monsters arise to attack. Oath of the Outcast includes three monster groups: bane spiders, beastmen, and razorwings! Along with the 15 included miniatures, you will also gain two new quests in this expansion: Oath of the Outcast and Prison of Ice and Lies. In these quests, you will attempt to stop the perpetrators of a dark ritual from reanimating a host of powerful undead warriors.
Hero and Monster Collections are a new type of expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition. Each one contains four heroes and three or more monster groups, updated for the second edition of the game with completely new art and figure sculpts. Every Hero and Monster Collection also includes two quests, to be played individually or as a Rumor quest in a campaign. For more information about Hero and Monster Collections, we turn to FFG developer Nathan Hajek:
“Hero and Monster Collections are an exciting new branch of our Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition experience. Many players who have played other games in the realm of Terrinoth have become fans of characters and monsters like the mysterious Shiver, savage razorwings, or the aged Elder Mok.
“One of my favorite parts of the development process for these new Hero and Monster Collections was getting to see these heroes become more defined with new art, sculpts, quotes, and backstories. I always enjoy reading and writing backstory for the heroes we’ve released, so it’s great to establish more facts as we update how they fit into the game. The monsters included in Hero and Monster Collections also have new art and sculpts. Heroes and monsters alike feature dynamic poses and great level of detail.
“As we created these collections, we decided to find a way to tie everything in each collection together. To that end, each collection includes two new quests. These quests have been specially designed to showcase some of the heroes’ and monsters’ unique strengths. The quests stand alone, or alternatively, if your group plays with Rumors, you can use the included Rumor cards to use these quests in a full campaign. The quests tie a collection together, and give each pack a unique theme and feel.”
