The dark god of despair sleeps in the secret corners of the world… and while lesser men quail in terror, you must take up arms to defend humanity against those who would enslave it forever.

Return to the underground labyrinths of Descent: Journeys in the Dark with The Altar of Despair expansion! The Altar of Despair includes over 20 plastic miniatures depicting 6 new heroes and 5 new monster types: ferocious blood apes, shadowy assassins, malevolent dark priests, powerful trolls, and the terrifying chaos beast.

The heroes gain access to a new type of potion and can now perform a new type of action, while the overlord can now trap the heroes with crushing walls and plague them with dark glyphs and cursed items. The Altar of Despair also features new familiars, new types of terrain, new special abilities, and 6 new quests highlighting it all.

Note this is an expansion pack - the base game "Descent" is required. Select Descent, under Product details, for information on base game and other expansions.
