Descent2 PBF

Introduction

Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is a reimagining of a popular dungeon crawler game, published in 2012 by Fantasy Flight Games (FFG). It has also been played as Play By Forum (PBF). In order to give everyone a chance to play, Pierzasty maintained a thread in this forum: Play by Forum. This wiki has replaced that thread, allowing all players and moderators to update the waiting list. It may mean a bit more work for the moderators, but it frees the waiting list updates from any single person.

If you are interested in playing a game of Descent 2 by forum, please post your name below. General requirements are that you own a copy of FFG's Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) (and any expansions that are used in the game) and that you can check in at least once a day once your game starts (except weekends and holidays). In order to participate you will need to have a reference for hero/card text, such as your own copy of the game. Other specific requirements will be outlined at the start of the game and may change from moderator to moderator. Entry into a game is on a first come, first serve basis.

If you are interested in moderating a game, please post in the general PBF thread. The demand is a bit heavier for moderators in that they will need to check-in more frequently and do their best to get through a round swiftly. We ask that you respect the order of the player list and keep it updated to reflect your invites and acceptances. Moderators can get started at their leisure.

Game Rules

Found in the general thread, or most existing game threads.

How To Add Your Name

  • Click on the "Edit" link at the top of this article.
  • Add the following two lines to the bottom of the list before the "|}" code):
    • |-
    • | "YOUR USERNAME" || "LIST OF GAME TYPE CODES" || "" ||
  • Replace the text in "CAPS" with your specific information. Do not add the " mark (or just follow the example above you).
  • CODES can be found below.
  • At the bottom of the webpage, note the "Edit Summary" description, such as "Added Name" or "On Vacation"
  • If you are currently playing in a game, you can get back on the list but notify that you are already in a game by a G in the status row, people on the waiting list without this status should be invited first to new games.
  • When a game gets started, a moderator will invite the first several names until a game fills. Once that game starts, those names that accepted will be removed from the list and everyone else will move up. Names will also be removed from the list for too many declined invitations.
  • There is a record of the edits on this page so we know who may be cheating!
  • NOTE: Since people can update this list simultaneously, it is possible that your name may not appear. Please verify it is on the main page before you leave.
  • NOTE: If you are a new user or not a regular user, please set your GeekMail notifications to forward messages to your regular email address. The list has the potential to clear very fast at random times and you will be bypassed if you do not respond within a timely fashion. Instructions on forwarding GeekMail.

If you're not confident editing the wiki, please ask someone in the general thread to add you.

Removing Names

Since anyone can edit this page, we ask that only moderators update the status of 'other' players. This edit should be limited to removing players who started in your game and those who decline the invite. A first decline gets marked with an * but stays on the list in the same position. A second decline gets ** and is moved to the bottom of the list. A third decline gets deleted from the list.

So an added name should show the user added with a history of that user adding the name. Any deletion should show the moderator name with a larger update. If anything looks suspicious, it will be corrected by a moderator.

Notations on the List

Game Type

  • [blank] - Prefers an official scenario
  • C - Prefers an official campaign game
  • S+ - Prefers an unofficial, fan-made or modded scenario
  • C+ - Prefers an unofficial, fan-made or modded campaign game
  • H - Prefers to play as a hero
  • O - Prefers to play as the overlord
  • x - Prefers x heroes (if not used, games default to full 4 heroes)
  • z! - Exclamation means the game MUST be of that type and will be bypassed if it isn't
    • For example: (C) means the player would prefer to play a campaign game, but would also like to play a single scenario if players are badly needed. (C!) means the game must be a campaign game or else the player will be bypassed. (4) means the player would prefer a 4 hero game. (4!) means the player will be bypassed unless it is a 4 hero game.

Status Codes

  • * - declined/ignored one invitation. If a 2nd invitation is declined/ignored, they will move to the bottom of the list
  • ** - declined/ignored two invitations. If a 3rd invitation is ignored, they will be removed from the list
  • I - Invited to the listed game; (Ax) means notified as x in the order of alternates, should any of the initial invitees decline.
  • M - Means moderating at this moment and not willing to play
  • V: DD/MM - DD/MM - Currently on Vacation / Away from the computer; exempt from collecting asterisks during the time stated

Your name may be on the list only once. If you are currently playing in a game and would like to get back in line, please wait until your current game has ended.
