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

Plot deck cards. Back and front.

Plot decks, are a set of action cards available for the Overlord player, acquired from the Lieutenant Packs associated with the second edition of Descent: Journeys in the Dark, together with the necessary Threat Tokens. These cards are used and acquired separately from its normal deck. They offer new tactical options themed around a specific lieutenant.

At the beginning of a campaign, one Plot Deck is chosen, and its starting card placed face up in the Overlords play area. After quests, the Overlord chooses to spend his threat tokens to acquire new Plot cards. To activate these during an encounter, the overlord has to forfeit one or more of the same tokens to the heroes, which passes then to be a Fortune Token that works to their benefit.
