Description Edit | History

In the dark and secret parts of the world, foul Overlords plot and scheme to unleash great evil and cover the world in suffering. Only those Heroes brave enough to journey into the dark and oppose them can save the known world from disaster.

The Road to Legend represents a new way to play Descent with the introduction of campaign rules and an overland map of Terrinoth.

2 Rulebook in ePub format
The Road to Legend rulebook is a free download from Fantasy Flight Games, so I went ahead and copied all the text from the PDF and created an ePub version. If you have an e-reader that uses ePub (I have a Nook Color), then give this a try and let me know how it looks on your unit.

10 Updated RtL quick-reference with rule references
This is an update to grend's excellent RtL reference, version 1.5. I have added many more references to the original rulebook and page numbers throughout. I hope this is useful for somebody else. I'm re-posting it with his permission. Sorry for the poor alignment in some cases, I had to edit the PDF as I did not have the original.
