Fantasy Flight Games has provided a preview of the upcoming Hero and Monster Collection expansion for Descent 2.0, Shards of Everdark. This expansion introduces four heroes from Descent’s first edition, “breathing new life into them with revitalized artwork and figure sculpts. In the same way, two monster groups from the first edition rejoin the game, as well as an entirely new monster group—the dark minotaurs.”
This latest preview discusses in more detail one of the heroes of this expansion, Arvel Worldwalker, and one of the monsters, the shades. Arvel is a hero that boasts balanced attributes, and when she fails an attribute test, she can either recover 1 Fatigue or reroll the test. Additionally, Arvel’s Heroic Feat enables her to return up to two of her Class cards to her Class deck and gain any number of Class cards from her deck worth an equal amount of XP. This powerful ability allows Arvel access to her Class deck throughout a campaign to give her true versatility for any situation.
Shades are evil creatures that appear in larger numbers, with ethereal forms that allow them to warp next to heroes when they fail attribute tests and prey upon those that attempt to recover Fatigue.
