Mennara is a world of magic, mystery, and adventure. In the deep places beneath the earth lurk terrifying monsters and foul villains, conspiring to plunge the land into shadow. The darkest parts of the forests hide things better forgotten, and in the mountains gather hordes of savage creatures whose only ambition is bloodshed. And behind all that evil and all that malice lurks the Overlord, the hidden threat that seeks to work his dark design across the realm. Fortunately, Mennara is also a world of heroes. Heroes clever of mind, strong of sword arm, and stout of heart. Heroes in many shapes and sizes, unlikely heroes of many races and creeds and from many walks of life. Heroes like you…

However, many loyal Descent fans may be wondering exactly how Second Edition differs from its predecessor. While it’s difficult to succinctly list the differences between the first and second editions of Descent (since so many of the enhancements are subtle), here are just a few highlights:
• Players can enjoy single-session scenarios, or they can experience the included campaign rules with its branching story arcs.
• A new character advancement system offers more control than ever before. Whether hero or overlord, players can choose a character subclass and spend experience on unique abilities.
• Second Edition’s eight heroes and nine monster types are all totally new, promising a Descent experience like none before. Of course, players wishing to transfer their existing figures to Second Edition have only to pick up the convenient Conversion Kit!”
