The Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) Wiki

Guardians of Deephall.

The stronghold of Deephall was once home to a thriving, peaceful community, but now, the mountain city lies under constant threat of invasion. A horde of undead, led by dark priests, attacks Deephall constantly. These unending attacks deplete the city’s guards and erode the peoples’ resolve. Four heroes are all that stands between Deephall and the city’s extinction.

Guardians of Deephall is the fourth Hero and Monster Collection for Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition.

It was first announced on 7. July 2014[1], and released on 28. January 2015[2].
