Terrinoth is in peril. The demon-tainted Uthuk Y’llan barbarians stalk the realm and the undead servants of Waiqar the Undying venture beyond their borders for the first time in memory. The leaders of Terrinoth are divided and fractious, unable to unite against these common threats. And in the northern barony of Forthyn, the stage is set for the next great confrontation between Terrinoth and the forces of darkness...
Forge your own legend as a hero of Terrinoth in Descent: Legends of the Dark, the definitive cooperative dungeon-crawling board game for one to four players!
Across the gripping quests of an unfolding campaign, you and your fellow heroes will venture across the realm, battling terrifying monsters, unlocking new skills, and exploring a wondrous fantasy world. Legends of the Dark features a fully integrated companion app, opening the door for an unforgettable journey as you explore high towers, dismal tombs, dark forests, and the city of Frostgate. With 46 pieces of 3D terrain and 40 striking hero and monster miniatures bringing your game to life, Legends of the Dark is an invitation to adventure that no one will want to miss.
"Is this the third edition of Descent: Journeys in the Dark?"
Descent: Legends of the Dark is not the third edition of Descent: Journeys in the Dark. Although it shares the realm of Terrinoth and the top-level identity as a dungeon-crawling board game indicated by the Descent title, we see Legends of the Dark as a new addition to our catalog, rather than a third edition of Journeys in the Dark.
Although Journeys in the Dark featured the Road to Legend companion app, that game was always designed as a competitive experience, pitting one to four hero players against a single overlord player. Legends of the Dark harnesses its integrated companion app to deliver a cooperative game from the very beginning, freeing you and your friends to fully focus on becoming the heroes of Terrinoth.
Core gameplay mechanics such as combat, fatigue, skills, items, and more have received completely new interpretations with Legends of the Dark, while a new approach to scenario layout and 3D terrain creates striking multi-level scenarios.
The app also brings new changes to gameplay, introducing enemies with adaptable strategies, complex status effects and triggers fully managed by the app, and the ability to develop your heroes based on the choices you make in scenarios. You’ll also uncover a wealth of activity between scenarios, such as crafting, shopping in the city, upgrading equipment, and more.
Because of these various differences, Descent: Legends of the Dark is not compatible with Descent: Journeys in the Dark content.
