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

Hugo the Glorious is a playable hero in the Second Edition Conversion Kit. He is one of only three heroes to have a Black Defense Die, the other two being Nanok of the Blade, and Ravaella Lightfoot.


“I, Hugo the Glorious, plan to achieve an enduring fame unlike anything that has been known before. Other Knights of Kellos might be happy enough to boast of duels won or giants defeated, but I will put these stories to shame when I stand in the feast hall and tell of the perils within Dragonfire Dungeon. When I display the priceless relics recovered from the depths below, men will gasp, women will swoon, and children with cower with terror. No one who hears of my legendary quest will ever forget the name Hugo the Glorious!”
