Hello there, This is a post where I'll be showing you guys my current progress on the content I've been poking around with for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition. I have no idea if there are people around here who does play Descent, but I thought, why not check. In case there is, I'd love some feedback about it, since other than myself, I pretty much just have my two brothers that I play Descent with. If you have not played it and do like board games, I'd definitely recommend it since the combat system reminds a lot of the Spiderweb games, but as they might have been in board game format. I have tried to preserve as much of the feeling of the classes/characters/creations as possible when converting them, but unfortunately I won't be able to add all aspects because of balance or mechanics issues. I also realize this will make no sense if you have not actually played Descent. I apologize about that. But if you're curious about a potential Geneforge board game, just try and google descent, and maybe this'll make a bit more sense. Also, be sure it's the second edition. I would put a link in here, but I'm not sure if that's allowed since it might be seen as advertisement or something. Some things might look a bit weird since I wrote all this with heart emojis for damage and lightning for surges. It seems I only need to rewrite the hearts as damage though. I apologize in case of confusion. If the lightning emojis are only visible for me, please tell me and I'll rewrite them as surge. Litalia (Healer) Move: 3 Health: 8 Stamina: 4 Defense: White Strength: 2 Lore: 4 Willpower: 4 Awareness: 1 Hero Ability Each enemy figure who enters a space adjacent to you becomes terrified. Heroic Feet (Action): Switch place with a hero withing your line of sight who is at most 5 spaces away from you. Figures and obstacles does not block your line of sight when performing this action. All enemies adjacent to your and the chosen heroes new destinations become stunned. The passive terrify on Litalia I felt made sense because of all the canisters she's eaten. Her skin glows, and she probably doesn't look very sane. I guess that depends on when in the story of Geneforge you'd be looking at, but I feel that even early on she started with the "raw power is more important than anything" concept. Anyways, I felt this fit quite well with her. Her heroic feet on the other hand doesn't really make sense at all, Geneforge-wise. I just felt it fit quite well with her hero ability, plus that it was kind of like Master Thorn's heroic that was removed, except this one after all puts her, a squishy mage, potentially into a lot of enemies, which makes it seem alright. The reason why she has such mediocre (or, pretty bad) stats, in case you're wondering, is because of how good her hero ability can be. With good positioning, no melee enemies can surge her or ranged allies. That, I felt fit pretty well with a Shaper/pet class as well; being able to support the team.

Once again, please throw some feedback at me, it's always fun to talk to other people and exchange some ideas!
