Descent: Journeys in the Dark:: Descent Merged & Reorganized Rulebook By: i.a.m
Merged_rulebooks_July_2008.pdf (1.54 MB)
Updated version of the Descent Merged/Reorganized rulebooks

This is the most up-to-date version.

The only change to this version is the embedded fonts, to make it look like it should on everyone's computer.

This is a reorganized rulebook for Descent: Journeys in the Dark.
It includes the base game rules (Descent Journeys in the dark) as well as both expansions rules: The Well of Darkness and The Altar of Despair.
The rules have been reorganised so that topics aren?t split across many sections anymore.

The content of the official FFG Descent?s Errata and FAQ have also been integrated into this document.

Please consider a Geek Gold donation or at least a thumbs-up if you like it.

-Added the ?Trickster? special ability (it was missing)
-Edited the table of content
Version 1.2
-Fixed a typo in the corrupted terrain rule.
-Edited the Furr the Spirit Wolf rule to reflect the latest official FAQ rule.

Descent: Journeys in the Dark:: Major Sholto's Ultimate Big Ass Player Mat for Descent and Expansions By: Major Sholto
Descent_PlayerMat.pdf (2.56 MB)
Version 1.0



Finished Size = 16.25" X 6.5"

For best results print this mat on a really nice color laser printer (like the one at the office...wink, wink). It looks sweet when you laminate it too.

One of the key design features is the health and fatigue trackers which enables you to use only one chit per track. The only time you'll need more chits is if your hero is enhanced beyond 16 health or 5 fatigue. Also the card slots are designed to have the cards hang off the edge of the mat (ala the mats in FFG's Fury of Dracula).

As always, feedback is invited. Thumbs up, comments and GG tips are always appreciated.

Now start downloading...

Descent: Journeys in the Dark:: Descent player parchment mat - RtL compliant By: Squaresville
Descent_Player_Parchment.pdf (1.26 MB)


My version of a language-independent Descent player mat, with a bit of added 'chrome' that my fellow Fantasy Flight Games fans tend to appreciate. It tracks health to 39 and fatigue to 19, as well as having ample space for hero upgrades. For those playing Road to Legend, the Coins area can be utilized for further hero advances as the treasury is party shared. Skill cards are meant to be offset stacked on one another down the left side, so the skill text is still visible. Hope your Descent group can make use of it as well!

Descent: Journeys in the Dark:: Town Marker Replacement By: refinery
DescentTownMarker2.pdf (2.42 MB)
Simple full page town marker replacement, providing place holders for all purchasable cards and giving an easy overview of everything heroes can do in town in form of town services such as temple, market, inn and glyph of transport.

UPDATE: Well with the purchase of the Tomb of Ice expansion I found a need for more space for potions and cards. So here is an updated town marker replacement which will now hold relics and feat cards. This will now basically cover all of your hero related cards for all expansion packs, excluding extra cards in the Road to Legend. Also the look has been improved to make it more visually appealing. Print on legal size paper. Enjoy!
