Leoric of the Book is a playable hero in the Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) base game.


After one too many heated arguments with the Provost, Professor Leoric of the University of Greyhaven was invited to go on an “extended sabbatical.” As an adventurer, Leoric's constant references to his scholarly texts quickly earned him the sobriquet “of the Book.” Leoric's sabbatical continues as the former professor applies his magical knowledge in the field and seeks out long-forgotten knowledge and wisdom.
