Trials of Frostgate Available through the Road to Legend App for Decent: Journeys in the Dark

October 1, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that a new adventure is now available for purchase through the Road to Legend app! Trials of Frostgate challenges you and your fellow heroes to four distinct trials, and each trial is guaranteed to test your strength and your resolve in a different way. Unlike a campaign, which progresses through a story with every new adventure, each challenge in Trials of Frostgate can be attempted multiple times as you attempt to best your scores from previous encounters!

In the city of Frostgate, the Northern Tribes gather each winter for feasting, celebration, and their most sacred rituals. Amongst these rituals, the Trials of Frostgate stand proudest—tests of courage, skill, and strength of arms, where the proudest and bravest warriors earn tattoos of their totemic animals. Four trials await you—and only the boldest heroes can withstand them all.

As part of the Road to Legend companion app, Trials of Frostgate invites you to experience the danger, excitement, and heroism of Descent: Journeys in the Dark as a completely cooperative experience. The companion app takes over command of the monsters that you battle, leaving you and each of your friends free to become the heroes of Terrinoth.


Delve deep with the new addition to the Road to Legend App for Descent

October 4th, 2016

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a new addition to the Road to Legend app for Descent: Journeys in the DarkThe Delve!

Your adventures have taken you across the realm of Terrinoth in two distinct campaigns. First, you opposed the bumbling schemes of Splig in The End of All Goblins mini-campaign. Then, you fought the explosive depredations of Merick Farrow through the wild places of Terrinoth in the full-length Kindred Fire campaign. You’ll soon be able to face your greatest challenge yet, however—a randomized delve mode is coming to Road to Legend.

Unlike the two campaigns that have been previously released for Road to Legend, The Delve challenges you in an entirely new way. Over the course of a single session, you and your fellow heroes will advance through an ever-changing pocket dimension, carrying out the goals given to you by the Caretaker—the ruler of this strange domain. If you can accomplish your objectives, the Caretaker will reward you with experience, loot, and your eventual freedom. But if you fail, the terrifying dark creatures trapped in this world will tear you to pieces. 

The Road to Legend companion app for Descent updated.

September 16th, 2016

The Road to Legend companion app for Descent: Journeys in the Dark has given you the chance to experience Descentas a fully cooperative game, battling against monsters and sinister events controlled by the app as you play through the epic story of a campaign. With the Rise of All Goblins mini-campaign, the full-length Kindred Fire campaign, and side quests corresponding to each of the game’s major expansions, you’ve already had dozens of adventures that span the entire realm of Terrinoth.

Now, you’ll gain access to nine entirely new side quests that can change the shape of your campaigns in Road to Legend forever!

With the most recent update to the Road to Legend app, nine new side quests have been added to the game—one corresponding to each of the Descent Hero and Monster Collections. These Hero and Monster Collections introduced heroes and monsters from the game’s first edition into the second edition of the game, greatly expanding the options available to you in every quest. Even though you’ve already been able to use the heroes and monsters from these expansions in your games of Road to Legend, the value of these Hero and Monster Collections grows even more, since with this newest update, each expansion in your collection also unlocks a brand-new side quest for your campaigns.

Shards of Everdark Hero and Monster Collection available for Descent

June 19th, 2016

The corruption of the Everdark has arrived in Terrinoth, turning even the greatest and noblest heroes against each other. This foul onslaught must be turned back and defeated, for the good of the entire realm. Now, you can fight these battles as a hero yourself or command the power of the Everdark with the Shards of Everdark Hero and Monster Collection, now available from Fantasy Flight Games.

Like the other Hero and Monster Collections previously released for Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Shards of Everdark reintroduces monsters and heroes from the game’s first edition, complete with entirely new artwork and figure sculpts. Shards of Everdark differs from most other expansions, however, by including a single brand-new monster group: the dark minotaurs. Alongside the terrifying dark minotaurs, you’ll find four heroes and two other monster groups—the ice wyrms and the shades. Finally, two completely new quests invite you to make your stand against the forces of the Everdark and decide the fate of Terrinoth.

Kindred Fire app available for free

June 11th, 2016

Your path has led throughout the land of Terrinoth, from the icy peaks of high mountains, through fetid swamps and fens, and into abandoned manor houses and the city streets of Nerekhall. You’ve taken your stand against the servants of darkness, protected the innocent from danger, and uncovered treasure beyond the wildest imagination. But you have never experienced a campaign for Descent: Journeys in the Dark like this one—Kindred Fire, the first full-length campaign for the Road to Legend app, is now available for free download!

Upon release, the Road to Legend companion app included the Rise of All Goblins mini-campaign, giving you and your fellow heroes a thrilling introduction to the Road to Legend experience. Now, Kindred Fire offers you the chance to play a full campaign that spans the realm of Terrinoth. What’s more, because the initial release of Road to Legendinspired such an amazingly positive reaction, the Kindred Fire campaign is available for free.

Stewards of the Secret expansion for Descent available

June 1st, 2016

The secrets of Terrinoth’s past have returned to haunt its future, and the order of Stewards is all that stands between dark powers and the long-lost research of a mad sorcerer. Now, the Stewards have called upon some of the realm’s greatest heroes for aid. You decide the outcome with Stewards of the Secret, an expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark, now available from Fantasy Flight Games

Like previous Hero and Monster Collections for Descent: Journeys in the Dark, Stewards of the Secret welcomes monsters and heroes from the first edition of Descent into the second edition with completely updated artwork and figure sculpts.

Stewards of the Secret contains four heroes, four ferrox, three nagas, and three blood apes.

The Chains that Rust expansion for Descent announced

May 14th, 2016

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Chains That Rust, a new expansion for Descent: Journeys in the Dark!

Your journey thus far has taken you deep into the Mistlands and the domain of Waiqar the Undying. In this land of shifting mists, uncertain footing, and terrifying undead, you are certain of little. The heroes that you’ve fought alongside for years seem suddenly alien and unknowable. Spirits loom up out of the fog and vanish moments before they touch you. Even the air you breathe seems to be worming its way inside you, tainting your blood and binding you to the Mistlands with indelible bonds. More and more, you are sure of only one thing: you must find a way to escape.

The heroes’ adventures through the Mistlands continue with The Chains That Rust, a new Descent expansion that pits your might against ever more deadly dangers. Within this expansion, you’ll discover an entirely new one-act campaign that can be played on its own or as a sequel to the campaign included in Mists of Bilehall. New Tainted cards and a new Overlord class give the overlord player new tools, even as eight plastic figures swell his armies with new monsters. Finally, you can stretch beyond your hero’s traditional Class decks for the first time with the addition of hybrid classes!
