Bonds of the Wild.

For years, stories have been told of Mabinogi and the Tree of Life. In a time of plague, Mabinogi left his people to follow the tales of a tree that could heal sickness and resurrect the dead. He returned from his journey with a length of blackened wood clutched in his hands. It is said that sickness did not come to that town for many years and Mabinogi never revealed the location of the Tree of Life. As time passed the branch was lost, but recently, rumors have spread of a blackened branch hidden within a den of kobolds.

Bonds of the Wild is the sixth Hero and Monster Collection for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition.

It was first announced on 23. March 2015[1], and released on 6. August 2015[2].
