Descent: Manor of Ravens
Strange creatures lurk throughout the abandoned manor that serves as the location for the six quests included in this expansion. These quests can be played sequentially as a mini campaign or woven into a larger campaign. However you play them, you’ll soon find your adventures transported to a haunted manor house, where the overlord’s influence is stronger than ever. The overlord commands powerful monsters here, and he finds a willing servant in the flocks of ravens around the mansion. If that’s not enough, the overlord gains two classes in Manor of Ravens , as well as relics for his monsters to put to evil use.
Can the heroes find a way to stop an empowered overlord? If they want to defeat the overlord’s minions in the darkness of the manor house, they would be wise to make use of the expansion’s heroes and hero classes for both Warriors and Scouts.
Whether you play as a hero or the overlord, however, you’ll be forced to contend with an extraordinary condition: Doomed! Certain monsters can spread the manor’s evil to the heroes, giving them the Doomed condition, while even monsters can become Doomed by some deadly weapons included in this expansion. While a hero or monster has the Doomed condition, he suffers an additional damage whenever he takes damage. A Doomed figure can be dispatched very quickly, but you can shake off the influence of the haunted mansion by spending a surge from an attack roll, using your heroism in battle to dispel the curse laid upon you.
Darkness rises within the Manor of Ravens , as the overlord begins to master his new powers. Monsters and a dread lieutenant wait within, while a flock of ravens keeps watch without. As Terrinoth’s noblest heroes prepare to enter the manor for a fateful showdown with the forces of evil, will you make your stand with the heroes, or conspire to make the abandoned mansion their final resting place? Determine the fate of Terrinoth within the Manor of Ravens !
