Excellence in the Dungeon

Wow!

I’ve had an excellent morning of gaming, and cannot wait to spread the word! Indeed, I’ve already started, but anyway…

Descent is, for me, the archetypal dungeon-crawler game. Currently in its second edition, I’ve been steadily collecting it for a couple of years now, but due to lack of interest, have only played it two or three times in total. Very disappointing!

Then, Fantasy Flight announced a few months back that they would be adding Descent to their organized play roster, which meant production of a game night kit. But how would organized play be implemented for a game where one person takes on a group of people? Well, the answer was to level the playing field and make the game co-operative, rather than one-versus-many competitive. Genius, and for me, very handy, as it meant there was now a way I could play this game by myself when I had the itch!

The quest that was released as part of the game night kit is called Forgotten Souls, and is pretty amazing! Whether I feel that way simply because I’ve not had a real chance to appreciate Descent in its true form is, naturally, up for debate, but I have just had one of the best mornings gaming of my entire life! Seriously, it’s like I’ve had a whole new vista of gaming awesomeness opened up for me!

The quest is print-on-demand, and can be ordered here, with the rules available for download here. At some point, I guess it’ll be available over here, but I always like to get my POD stuff directly from the publisher, just to support them a bit more and such!

Descent has suddenly become a game I want to play more of, so expect to see a full blog on the core game (at least) before very long!!!
